It looks as though Calgary drafted Ryan Culkin with the pick they acquired from us.

On a side note, Calgary's 2011 draft class looks great.
I can't speak for other people, but i remember reiterating at the time how much i thought it was a smart move by Gauthier. Someone should drag up that old thread !
