NHL Entry Draft coverage from Vancouver

Saginaw Spirit defenseman Matt Corrente was drafted with the last pick of the first round today as he was taken by the New Jersey Devils at No. 30. Corrente, entering his third season in Saginaw, was the Spirit's first-round pick, second overall, in the 2004 OHL Priority Selection.

Two Plymouth Whalers' forwards went two picks apart in the third round. Tom Sestito was drafted by the Columbus Blue Jackets 85th overall and John Armstrong was chosen by the Calgary Flames with the 87th overall pick. Both Sestito and Armstrong were 2004 Plymouth draft picks with Armstrong being the Whalers' first-rounder 13th overall.

Rochester Hills native Luke Lynes, a forward with the OHL's Brampton Battalion, is now property of the Washington Capitals after being selected in the fourth round, 122nd overall.

In the fifth round, Saginaw goalie Ryan Daniels was selected by the Ottawa Senators 151st overall.
