Welcome to "The Numbers Game: NHL Draft Edition"
76th overall pick 
Elvis Merzliknis

The Blue Jackets selected Elvis Merzliknis of Lugano (Swiss A League) with the 76th pick. Here is a look at how the goalie's numbers add up:

- Merzliknis is the second Latvian player drafted by the Blue Jackets in team history. Columbus picked defenseman Jekabs Redlihs in the 4th round (119th overall) in the 2009 NHL Draft.

2.13 - The goals against average set by Merzliknis in 22 games for Lugano this past season in the Swiss National A League. He also posted one shutout during the campaign.

925% - The save percentage that Merzliknis recorded during Lugano's past season. That mark was a career-high for a season mark in his Swiss League career.
