HAWKS DRAFT BROUGHT TO YOU BY THE LETTER 'D'

By:
Left Wing Kyle Beach was the Blackhawks first pick in the 2008 draft.
Rockford, Ill.- The Chicago Blackhawks used five of their seven picks in the 2008 NHL Entry Draft to bolster their defensive corps.

The Hawks started with Left Wing Kyle Beach (Everett, WHL | draft profile) as the 11th pick in the draft. Beach recorded 27 goals, 60 points and 222 penalty minutes in 60 games with the Everett Silvertips of the Western Hockey League in 2007-08. Those totals earned the 18-year-old the No. 7 rating among North American skaters in NHL Central Scouting's final rankings.

In the third round, the Hawks picked Shawn Lalonde (draft profile | player page) of Belleville in the OHL.  To get their man, the Hawks traded the #72 and #102 picks to the New York Islanders to move up four spots.
