Blackhawks begin busy second day of National Hockey League draft

"Over the course of the last few years, under the supervision of the Blackhawks medical staff, I have been privately undergoing treatment for a progressive skin disorder and the side effects of the medications involved to treat the disorder", Hossa said in a statement.

The Blackhawks selected defenseman Ian Mitchell No. 57 overall in the second round of the National Hockey League. The Philadelphia Flyers then grabbed Nolan Patrick at No. 2. Vegas also opted for another forward prospect with its second of three picks in the first round, taking Nick Suzuki at No. 12 before selecting Swedish defenseman Erik Brannstrom with the 15th pick.

The NHL Draft continues Saturday with its final rounds and the Blackhawks have nine picks.

Mitchell, 18, played for the Spruce Grove Saints in the Alberta Junior Hockey League last season. But they promptly moved back three spots in a deal with Dallas in the first of three trades announced during the first round.

It should be an eventful night with many picks and potential trades. He also had five goals and four assists in 27 games in the VHL last season. New Jersey is coming off its worst season in almost three decades, finishing with a 28-40-14 record.

"The idea of varsity hockey at the University of IL has great appeal", said IL director Josh Whitman.

The 18-year-old Finnish defenseman registered eight-multi point games and finished fourth on the Portland Waterhawks in scoring in his first WHL season. Mittelstadt took home Player of the Game honors in that contest after netting a pair of goals. Barratt, a "kid from Bristol, Connecticut", was overcome with emotion when he heard his name called.

"Once we gathered all the information we felt comfortable that if he was there for us we were going to take him", general manager Ron Hextall said.
