Philadelphia Flyers select D Ricard Blidstrand, LW Brendan Ranford with 206th, 209th picks

Two late seventh rounders wrap up the draft for the Philadelphia Flyers. With the 206th pick, acquired a few minutes ago from Carolina for Jonathan Matsumoto, the Flyers have selected Ricard Blidstrand, a defenseman from Sweden.

His profile on Eliteprospects.com:

A big and strong defenseman. Plays determined and is pretty physical in his own end. Moves the puck well and has a very good shot from the point. Passing game is a bit suspect as well as his decision making at times.

With their final pick, the 209th overall, the Flyers picked Brendan Ranford, a winger from Kamloops of the WHL. Ranford scored 29 goals, 65 points in 72 games with Kamloops.

That does it for the draft.
