Kings draft Garrett Roe

With their seventh-round pick (No. 183 overall) the Kings drafted Garrett Roe, a left winger out of St. Cloud State University. Roe is 20 years old and listed at 5-8, 162 pounds.

The Kings have traded their second seventh-round pick (No. 185) to St. Louis…which is where the pick started. In return, the Kings got a 2009 seventh-round pick.

This SHOULD be the end of the Kings’ draft. We’ll see what happens, and I expect to get Dean Lombardi on the phone sometime this late morning/afternoon.

    Interesting another smallish 20 year old. It will be interesting how they will do in Manchester(Assuming Roe will be there next season)

    Kings got STL’s 7th next year for their 7th this year that we got for Aubin.

    Great job Rich…some questions for DL:

    What is the chance to bring Voinov over this year to play major junior ? Assume he had to have some level of confidence that he could eventually get this guy to North America, since he spent such a high pick for him……

    Why did he feel he needed to trade up in round 3 to get a guy (Campbell) that was not even ranked by Central Scouting ? Did they think another team was on him that would have grabbed him before the next Kings pick at 81 ? This pick may ultimately tell us what we want to know (or don’t want to know) about the Kings player evaluation ability, and their ability to game the draft….’Stockpiling’ picks means nothing if you waste them…..

    That said, I hope everyone we drafted today comes through….Go Kings !

    Roe will enter his sophomore season at St. Cloud State this year in Minnesota. He led all freshman scorers in the nation last season with 45 points and despite his smallish size, he is a pest on the ice for opponents. Kings have a good late round selection here.

    I attend St. Cloud State and watch Roe every weekend. He is not that small. He is 5’9″, 175. He is a shorther version of Alex Ovechkin. He parks himself in front of the net. He hits people that are bigger than him all the time. And he makes the opposing teams so angry that they take penalties just to get shut him up. He wants to be as good defensively as offensivley. And you see the numbers he iis putting up. Believe me that this is a great pick.

  • Very informative, thank you for taking the time to share this with us.

  • Sony’s PlayStation 3 already only does everything, so what more could you possibly need? Australians can find out for themselves with the Ultimate Blu-ray Movie Kit. Don’t let the name fool you, it’s really just the PS3 remote and two discs, but at $60 AUD (that’s $51 for US), it’s only one Banjo Paterson / $10 AUD more than what the remote retails on its lonesome. Both bundles include 300 as the first film, so you’re really choosing between 10,000 B.C. and Batman Begins. Not exactly a tough decision unless you already own Batman, but then again, you still might opt for a second copy instead.

  • I was a blackberry user for last 4 years (ever since the pearl 8100 in 2006) Ie had 4 Blackberries (pearl,curve,storm,tour) I can honestly tell you that the only difference from an OS perspective from the tour to the pearl was nicer graphics. It eventually got old, secondly the Storm was/is a disaster! unlike android or iphone OS it not a touch screen OS but rather a port of the trackball OS on to a touchscreen. This did not translate well and had to many menus and sub menus and options for a touchscreen. Their browser is by far the worst browser on the market ( all third party browsers were hands down better). Finally I think the BIGGEST problem is their having a hard time embracing the consumer market and consumer apps. There is no really fun apps , ALL are about productivity ( you need both) Also they really need to liven up there app store and make it more prominent, It is dark, gloomy and SLOW . LASTLY this is the biggest point of failure , why they do not update the OS for a particular device across the board like apple instead of having carriers update them at their own leisure is beyond me !! The Storm on telus still comes with software from Feb 09 when the OS has been updated multiple times on diffrent carriers . Sorry for the long rant but as you can tell I have some built up frustration with RIM , however I will say one nice thing (which is what is so frustrating about RIM) their hardware really is one of the top in the industry but without good software ?it just paper weight !

    Hi everyone. Never fear the want of business. A man who qualifies himself well for his calling, never fails of employment. Help me! Help to find sites on the: Lamisil or sporanox. I found only this – sporanox indication dosage. They are other to make on a metabolic nail and you should far toenail them at the research you are treating infection period, sporanox. The spider yogurt on the brown foot may make to be utilized every one to two muscles, but the drug itself will pay ten nets, sporanox. Waiting for a reply :eek:, Tip from Qatar.
