Thrashers sign their #1 draft pick!

The Atlanta Thrashers have signed defenseman Zach Bogosian, the team’s first-round selection (third overall) in the 2008 NHL Entry Draft, to a multiple-year contract, according to Executive Vice President and General Manager Don Waddell. As per team policy, terms of the deal were not disclosed.

Bogosian, 18, appeared in 60 games with the Peterborough Petes of the Ontario Hockey League (OHL) last season and was the only OHL defenseman to lead his team in points with 61 (11 goals, 50 assists). The 6-2, 200 pound defenseman is going to get a lot of playing time this year and the team is looking to him to be a physical blue liner who will help strengthen the teams defense. Training camp is just around the corner and the season will be here before you know it!
