Oil Kings swing deal for first round pick

After taking Curtis Lazar with the 2nd overall pick in the 2010 bantam draft, Edmonton G.M. Bob Green swung a deal with Everett to pick up a 2nd first rounder. The Kings give up a 2nd and 4th round pick, and while Guy and I had pencilled in Winnipeg blueliner Madison Bowey, and had already started our `Ground control to major Tom` references, the Kings surprised us with Mason Geertzen of Drayton Valley who is also a D-man.

Geertzen put up 22 points in 33 games with Leduc in the Alberta AAA Bantam league this year. He also added 38 penalty minutes and was impressive at the recent Alberta Cup. He`s 6.0 160 pounds.
