June 21, 2010 Updated Jun 20, 2008 at 9:51 PM EST

OTTAWA (AP) - Steven Stamkos was selected with the Number-1
pick in the NHL draft by the Tampa Bay Lightning.
Stamkos is a speedy, offensive-minded 18-year-old forward from
suburban Toronto. Tampa Bay is coming off an NHL-low 31-win season.
The L.A. Kings took defenseman Drew Doughty from Guelph of the
Ontario Hockey League with the second pick. Atlanta followed with
the selection of another defenseman, Zach Bogosian from
Peterborough of the OHL at Number-3.
St. Louis selected Alex Pietrangelo from Niagara of the OHL with
the fourth pick. The Toronto Maple Leafs completed a complicated
deal with the New York Islanders, moving up two spots from Number-7
to pick Luke Schenn, who played for Kelowna of the Western Hockey
League.
