The Pittsburgh Bankers select C Vladimir Shadrin
Shadrin is an interesting player. He spent a good number of years as the defensive conscience of the Yakushev - Shadrin - Maltsev line at the national team level. He also centered a line with Yakushev at Spartak, and they seem to have been a good team. He is known as the greatest Soviet penalty-killer of all time, and while he wasn't the biggest scorer, puckcarriers in the Soviet league are somewhat underrated because the league did not count second assists. I think Shadrin is probably a pretty good two-way third liner. He's not physical, but he brings everything else you look for in a checkingline pivot, and he's a legit 1st unit PKer. A nice pick at this point.
