Preds select Patrick Cehlin with their 5th round pick…

The Nashville Predators have selected Patrick Cehlin with their fifth round pick.

The Preds acquired this pick by trading the Tampa Bay Lightning their fifth round pick last year at the draft.

Cehlin is a winger for Djurgardens of the Swedish Elite League and tallied 11 points in 54 games last year. Keep in mind though, young rookies typically don’t get a lot of playing time in the European elite leagues so 11 points for a 17-year old is pretty respectable.

Cehlin is signed with Djurgardens through the 2011-12 season and was ranked by Central Scouting as the 25th best European skater.
