Yakimowicz Drafted by NHL’s St. Louis Blues
by PaulMaciejewski posted 05/21/2014
 

History was made in more ways than one during the 2014 NHL Entry Draft. CJ Yakimowicz is the first Luzerne County, Pennsylvania native to be drafted by a National Hockey League team. Yakimowicz is also the first player from the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Knights organization to be drafted into the NHL.

Over the June 27-28 weekend, the NHL held its annual Entry Draft at the home of the Philadelphia Flyers – Wells Fargo Center. Many highly talented draft hopefuls were in attendance – including Yakimowicz. Yakimowicz was taken on the second day of the draft in the 6th round, 172nd overall by the St. Louis Blues. However, it didn’t matter to the 1996-born, 6-foot-2-inch, 205 pound power forward where or when he was taken in the draft.

“Being drafted by the Blues didn’t really sink in at the time,” explained Yakimowicz when asked about St. Louis’s selection. “It didn’t sink in until the day after when I just sat down and really thought about it. I couldn’t be happier being drafted by such a great organization. It’s a dream come true.”
