2015 NHL All-Star Draft results: Vladimir Tarasenko drafted by Team Toews

It took a while, but the Blues' top scorer wound up going to Jonathan Toews' squad.

Tonight's All-Star Draft was shockingly entertaining, with a roast-like vibe, lots of booze, and a Kessel for Seguin trade. Team Toews selected Kessel as their first overall pick, and then the Blackhawks captain made a joke (!) calling him "the most coachable player out there."

Toews made a double funny. Unpossible.

The Blackhawks' captain should temporarily win the heart of Blues' fans by selecting Vladimir Tarasenko... eventually. For one of the league's best goal scorers, it took a while for Vladdy to go.

Team Foligno selected Brian Elliott, with Team Toews selecting Jaroslav Halak right behind him. Yet again, Elliott gets picked over Jaro. Elliott, who was a late pick to be in the ASG, wasn't there. He missed out on an excellent open bar.

Kevin Shattenkirk also wound up on Team Foligno on the strength of "how good his hair is." Someone on a hot mic was caught saying "poor guy" right afterward - I'm not sure if that was in reference to being on a team with Patrick Kane (whose own hair looked awful tonight) or Shatty's hair, but he had a good sense of humor about it.

The highlight of the evening? Uber-drunk Alexander Ovechkin wanting a car but not getting it. Team Foligno picked him "just to piss him off." There may be a "fuck you" mouthed in here somewhere.
