DRAFT CENTRAL: CBJ Select Gianluca Curcuruto In Seventh Round
CBJ SELECTS CURCURUTO: If this were an "all-name" draft, the Blue Jackets might be contending for top honors! With the 182nd overall pick (seventh round), Columbus selected defenseman Gianluca Curcuruto from the OHL's Sault-Ste. Marie Greyhounds.
