There's a ton to like about Rasmussen's game as a 6'6 forward who's comfortable with the puck, solid defensively, and knows how to use his size to win puck battles.
Other top 20 picks included Czech center Martin Necas (No. 12, Carolina Hurricanes), Finnish blue-liners Juuso Valimaki (No. 16, Calgary Flames) and Urho Vaakanainen (No. 18, Boston Bruins), American center Joshua Norris (No. 19, San Jose Sharks) and Canadian center Robert Thomas (No. 20, St. Louis Blues).
The NHL Draft was first held in 1963 and allows teams from the league select available young players to add to their squad.
