Canucks surprise with second pick


The Vancouver Canucks noticed something NHL Central Scouting didn’t: Rimouski Oceanic centre Alexandre Mallet.

Unrated by the league’s scouting department, Mallet was the Canucks’ first choice Saturday on the second day of the entry draft.

The abrasive, two-way centre with 81 points and 132 penalty minutes this season was also the last Canuck draft pick before the fifth round and embodied management’s weekend draft strategy of going older, as the National Hockey League team took more developed players with its final four selections.
