Wings wrap-up busy Day 2 of Draft
Teemu Pulkkinen
DETROIT – The Red Wings covered offense, defense and goaltending in their final four picks of the 2010 NHL Draft at Staples Center in Los Angeles on Saturday.

The Red Wings already picked centers with their first three picks, but late Saturday they took a Finnish forward, a Czechoslovakian goalie, a Canadian center, and an American defenseman.

The first non-center taken by the Red Wings was Finnish left wing Teemu Pulkkinen in the fourth round.

Pulkkinen, 18, was ranked No. 17 among European skaters by NHL Central Scouting, and at least one mock draft prior to draft weekend had the Red Wings taking the 5-foot-11 Vantaa native in Friday’s first-round.
Petr Mrazek

The Hockey News quoted an unnamed scout as calling Pulkkinen “a pure sniper. He's got a great shot, a great release. Average size, average skater, but you watch the game and all he does is score.”

Even though injuries limited Pulkkinen to 17 games last season with Jokerit, he managed to score 20 goals with 21 assists for the Finnish Elite League club.

In the fifth round, the Red Wings selected Czechoslovakian goalie Petr Mrazek. He is the second goalie taken by Detroit in the last three drafts – joining Thomas McCollum in 2008 – and seventh since 2001.

Mrazek, who played the last two seasons for the Ottawa 67s of the Ontario Hockey League,
Brooks Macek
was the 141st player taken in the draft, and just the fourth European goaltender.

Last season with the 67s, the 6-foot Mrazek had a 12-9-1 record with a 3.00 goals-against average and a .905 save percentage.

The Red Wings went back to the center position in the sixth round, selecting Winnipeg native Brooks Macek, who played for the Tri-City Americans of the Western Hockey League.

Known as a playmaker, the 5-foot-11 Macek was a reason that the Americans reached the WHL finals, as he scored six goals with 11 assists in 17 playoff games. He had an even more impressive regular-season, posting 21 goals and 52 assists in 72 games.
Ben Marshall

The Wings finished their portion of the draft by taking Minnesota high school defenseman Ben Marshall with the 201st overall pick.

Marshall led Mahtomedi High School deep into the past two Class 1A state tournaments. Last season as a junior, he scored 20 goals with 39 assists. A University of Minnesota recruit, Marshall plans to forego his senior year in Minnesota this fall to join the Omaha (Neb.) Lancers of the USHL before joining the Gophers for the 2011-2012 season.

"When he's got the puck he's like Phil Housley," NHL Central Scouting's Jack Barzee told NHL.com. "He sees the ice, runs the power play. One-on-one he blows past people. It'll be interesting to see how he handles the next level. He stood out at the (evaluation) camp because he's such a dynamic skater."
