Gary Bettman speaks to the crowd during the NHL Draft at the United Center on Friday. Additionally, the Blackhawks acquired the 29th- and 70th- overall selections of the 2017 NHL Draft from the Dallas Stars in exchange for the 26th overall selection of the 2017 NHL Draft. When the draft began around 6 p.m., no team deviated from the set order of picks - until the Hawks, who made the first trade during the draft. "It's my biggest goal to play in the National Hockey League". Galvas, who played in several leagues last season, has a bit of offensive skill, scoring two goals and racking up seven assists in 17 games as a member of the Czech under-18 team on the global level a season ago.

In the third round with the 70th pick, the Blackhawks drafted forward Andrei Altybarmakyan, who is from Russian Federation, 5-10, 183 pounds and a left-handed shot. Between 2008-10 he played in three consecutive Stanley Cup Finals with three separate teams, finally winning the Cup with the Blackhawks in 2010, and winning it two more times with Chicago after that.

A few picks later, the Blackhawks got to select again, and they stayed in Scandinavia as they Roope Laavainen, a defenseman from Finland. Soderlund had a decent season in the Swedish Hockey League past year, with three goals and four assists to his credit.

The 5-foot-11, 182-pound center was selected by the Chicago Blackhawks in the third round.

Barratt is set to play hockey at Penn State University this fall.
