Second-day draft picks

The Hurricanes kicked off the second day of the draft by taking Victor Rask, a 6-foot-2 center from Sweden, in the second round with the 42nd overall pick.

With their third-round pick, 73rd overall, the Hurricanes took defenseman Keegan Lowe, the son of Edmonton Oilers president Kevin Lowe, a legendary defenseman himself.

Their fourth-round pick was another European, Swiss center Gregory Hofmann, 103rd overall, while their sixth-round pick, 163rd overall, was Plymouth (OHL) goalie Matt Mahalak, and the Canes wrapped up the draft in the seventh round, 193rd overall, with a third second-generation Sutter -- Brody, the son of Duane.

"It fell very nicely for us this year, especially in the first three rounds," Hurricanes general manager Jim Rutherford said.
