Ottawa Senators deal 16th pick in NHL draft to St. Louis Blues

LOS ANGELES, Calif. - The Ottawa Senators acquired defenceman David Rundblad from the St. Louis Blues on Friday for the 16th overall selection in the NHL draft.

The Blues then selected winger Vladimir Tarasenko from Novosibirsk of the KHL.

Runblad, a native of Lycksele, Sweden, was picked 17th overall by the Blues at the 2009 draft.

The 19-year-old had one goal and 12 assists for Skelleftea SW of the Swedish Elite League last season.

The Senators do not have another selection until the third round, 76th overall. Ottawa also has picks in the fourth, sixth and seventh rounds.

Tarasenko—an 18-year-old from Yaroslavl, Russia—scored 13 goals and added 11 assists last season in the KHL.
