The Malik Report

According to NHL.com, the Red Wings picked Rasmus Bodin, a 6’6,” 207-lb LW from Sweden. He’s not listed on NHL.com. That’s it for the Wings.
MLive’s Ansar Khan confirms:
Wings take Rasmus Bodin of Sweden, a 6-6, 207 pound center, with their last pick, 200th overall in 7th round.
The Wings confirm but get the pick wrong:
With the 210th pick in the 2012 #NHLDraft, your @DetroitRedWings select Rasmus Bodin (C) from Sweden.
As you might expect, RedWingsCentral’s Matthew Wuest has the scoop Bodin:
7-200. C/LW Rasmus Bodin, 6-6, 207, Ostersunds (Swe-J-18), 29-9-17-26-94. The Red Wings finally went to Europe with their last pick and took yet another Swedish sleeper, a six-foot-six forward who averaged close to a point per game and piled up 94 penalty minutes at the J-18 level last season. He’s joining the more high-profile HV-71 organization next season.

About The Malik Report
The Malik Report is a destination for all things Red Wings-related. I offer biased, perhaps unprofessional-at-times and verbose coverage of my favorite team, their prospects and developmental affiliates. I've joined the Kukla's Korner family with five years of blogging under my belt, and I hope you'll find almost everything you need to follow your Red Wings at a place where all opinions are created equal and we're all friends, talking about hockey and the team we love to follow.
