Jackets Draft RW Petr Straka 55th Overall

New, comments

The Jackets used the Raffi Torres pick on winger Petr Straka, who is a member of the QMJHL's Rimouski Oceanic. He put up 28-36-64 with 54PIMs last year, leading all QMJHL rookies in scoring, also winning the QMJHL's rookie of the year award. Like current Jacket Jakub Voracek, Straka is another high-scoring Czech winger.

I love this pick, I feel that Dalton Smith may have been taken a little high, getting Straka at 55 makes everything great in my book.
