If you blinked, you might have missed it. The second round of the 2012 NHL Draft is already in the books, as the NHL doesn't mess around when it comes to drafting.
As we mentioned here earlier on SB Nation Dallas, the Dallas Stars had three picks in the third round, thanks to a trade with the Washington Capitals. Here's who the Stars took with those three picks:
Round 2, pick 13 (43 overall): Ludwig Bystrom, D, Sweden.
Bystrom is an 17 year old, turning 18 in July, defenseman from Sweden, who most recently played for MODO, in the Swedish league, the Elitserien. Bystrom also played in the junior version of the league in 2011-12 as well.
Round 2, pick 24 (54 overall): Mike Winther, C, Canada.
Continuing a theme from the first round, the Stars took a center, who spent the year playing in Canada. This time, they selected a Canadian native in Winther, though. Winther played for Prince Albert in the Western Hockey League this past year, scoring 32 goals and assisting on 24 in 71 games.
Round 2, pick 31 (61 overall): Devin Shore, C, Canada.
Another second round pick, another Canadian center. Shore participated in the Ontario Junior Hockey League in 2011-12, playing for Whitby. In 41 games, Shore racked up 58 points, on an even 29 goals and 29 assists.
