Blues Draft Niklas Lundstrom in 2011 NHL Entry Draft Fifth Round

Lundstrom AIK

With the 132nd overall selection in the 2011 Entry Draft, the Blues have selected their second goaltender -- and their second European -- in this draft, snagging big AIK Solna netminder Niklas Lundstrom.

Lundstrom, who tips the scales at 6' 2, 187 pounds, played at all three primary levels of the AIK organization last season -- the U18 squad, the U20 squad, and the Elitserien club. The Värmdö native played one game for the AIK men's club, surrendering five goals on 23 shots in 47:20 of playing time, and also put in one game with the U18 squad late in the season, giving up three goals on 22 shots in a full 60 minutes.

The bulk of Lundstrom's season was spent with the U20 squad, where he put up a 3.052 GAA and 89.1% save percentage in 1259 minutes of playing time over 22 games. The AIK U20 squad did not qualify for the J20Superelit playoffs, so Lundstrom was assigned to the J18 Allsvenskan squad for the post-season, where he played every minute of the post-season and put up a 2.47 GAA and 91.4% save percentage in 387:55 of playing time over six games.
