It took the Blues until the end of the second round, but they finally selected in this year’s draft at number 62 overall. The Blues selected Nikita Alexandrov of Charlottetown of the QMJHL. In 64 games the center netted 27 goals and 61 points. That doubled his point production from his previous season (13 G 18 A) in two fewer games played.
