So the Avs did a little dealing to get an extra pick. Brad Richardson got sent to the Kings for the 61st choice. The Kings originally got that pick (the last of the second round) from Detroit, so if goalie Peter Delmas turns out to be the next Patrick Roy, we can say that it was at the expense of the Red Wings.
And let's hope the Kings treat Richie better than the Avs did. He deserves to be playing in the big league.
The Avs' draft choices:
2nd Round, 50th: Cameron Gaunce, D, Mississauga (OHL)
2nd Round, 61st: Peter Delmas, G, Lewiston (QMJHL)
4th Round, 110th: Kelsey Tessier, C, Quebec (QMJHL)
5th Round, 140th: Mark Olver, C, Northern Michigan (CCHA)
6th Round, 167th: Joel Chouinard, D, Victoriaville (QMJHL)
6th Round, 170th: Jonas Holos, D, Sarpsborg (Norway)
7th Round, 200th: Nathan Condon, C, Wausau (USHS)
The Avs have traditionally picked heavily from the collegiate ranks, but this year they only chose one player from the CCHA. Also of note, the choice of only centers and defensemen (with the exception of Delmas).
