Steven Stamkos was taken in the seventh round of the NHL's All Star Fantasy Draft in Ottawa on Thursday night. Daniel Alfredsson and co-captain Henrik Lundqvist took Stamkos with their seventh overall pick. He is the only NHL player currently on pace to score fifty goals. Even among the best players in the world, it was surprising to see him fall that far.
For the complete draft results,
Stamkos was originally the number one overall pick in 2008. He joins Alfredsson, Jason Spezza, and Claude Giroux as fellow forwards on the Alfredsson team so far. It's been a good start to the All Star weekend.
