The Golden Gaels select Ulf Dahlen, the 6'2 power forward known for his ability along the boards, two-way awareness and work ethic, who starred at the '87 World Juniors and '93 World Championships and scored a couple of times representing Sweden in the '91 Olympics, the '96 World Cup and at both the '98 and '02 Olympics. He was described at the '02 Olympics as a "dependable two-way veteran". He averaged over 25 goals per season his first seven NHL years and scored over 300 NHL goals in nearly 1000 NHL games. He had 120 NHL powerplay goals and an impressive 49 NHL game winners, including nine seasons of 4+ GWGs. He was big, strong and somewhat clutch. He had three significant playoffs and 40 points in 85 career NHL postseason games.

just over three years with the North Stars, Dahlen scored 94 goals and was a driving force in helping the club advance to the Stanley Cup finals in 1991, where the Stars eventually lost to the high-powered Pittsburgh Penguins.

Dahlen's most productive season came in 1992-93 when he had 35 goals and 39 assists for 74 points. Voted co-most popular player with Mike Modano amongst his Minnesota teammates Dahlen and the North Stars moved to Dallas in 1993-94.

On March 19, 1994, Dahlen was traded to the San Jose Sharkds and in 78 games between the two teams, registered 25 goals and 69 points. During the 1996-97 season, Dahlen was traded to the Chicago Blackhawks and in 1998, represented his homeland at both the Winter Olympics and the World Championships, where he helped Sweden capture the gold medal.

The 10 and 2, for those of you who don’t know, is the ability to set your feet in time as you skate. The left foot is positioned at the 10 o’clock hour of your pocket watch and your right foot is set at the 2 o’clock hour of your grandfather clock.

Actually , it doesn’t matter what kind of clock you use, 10 and 2 is a term that NHL players have used for years to describe a player’s footwork.

The 10 and 2 has been around for quite some time. Ulf Dahlen, a big power forward who scored more than 300 goals in 900-plus NHL games, was the pioneer of the 10 and 2. He used to go to it quite often behind the net, but only at about half the speed of Crosby.
