“We are extremely pleased to acquire an additional first round pick in the very deep 2010 Draft, as well as a top four defenseman in Dennis Wideman,” Tallon said. “Now, with seven picks in the first 93 selections, we have positioned ourselves to make a huge impact on the direction of our franchise this weekend.”
