It was still a 7th round pick.

When a team doesn't sign a 1st round pick, they get a 2nd round pick at the same position. In the case of this year's draft, San Jose had traded Ehrhoff to Vancouver for Patrick White (a former 25th overall pick) who didn't get signed, so San Jose received the 55th overall pick as compensation.

Round 1 - 30 picks
Round 2 - 31 picks
Round 3 - 30 picks
Round 4 - 30 picks
Round 5 - 30 picks
Round 6 - 30 picks
Round 7 - 30 picks

Total - 211 picks

Regardless, this is an extremely superficial issue with the game.
