Round 1 – 20th overall
Pittsburgh Penguins – Beau Bennett
6′ 0″, 173 – Right Wing, Pintincton
Bennett was shooting up draft boards the past few months, and some thought they would sneak into the first round. I doubt many though he’d go at #20, but the Penguins certainly feel confident that this prep school winger has what it takes to develop into the sniper he has the potential to be.
What is interesting is to see that Emerson Etem is still available, and Bennett was the first Californian to be picked.
