The Tampa Bay Lightning have selected Buffalo native Dylan Blujus with the 40th overall pick.
Earlier this week, the Howard Simon Show talked with Blujus about his expectations going into the draft
Here's a bit on his background via Howard Simon:
Athletics is in the blood lines of the 6 foot 3, 193 pound Blujus. His older brother Austin played in the Ontario Junior Hockey League with the Buffalo Junior Sabres. Blujus is also getting some good advice on what it takes to be a pro from his brother-in-law, Dan Gronkowski. Dan is one of three Gronkowski brothers who went from the high school fields of Western New York all the way to the NFL. Rob is now one of the top tight ends in the league. Dan Gronkowski were among the family and friends in Pittsburgh celebrating Dylan's big moment this weekend.
