We'll update with info on the pick whenever it's available. Discuss below. Minor deal, obviously...
For what it's worth, I remember seeing Artyukhin playing with the Bolts and thinking... "God, that's a guy I'd love to have here." He's a giant. He's enormous. He hits like crazy. Is he more than a depth winger? Nah, probably not. But he's managed to score a few points while playing very, very limited ice time in Anaheim. With the addition of Oduya and the play of Kulda and Postma, Oystrick was done as a Thrasher.
We seem to make this sort of deal with Anaheim frequently. Donny's got a friend out west...
