NHL Draft Results: Red Wings Select Rasmus Bodin With 200th Pick

With the 200th overall pick of the 2012 NHL Draft, the Detroit Red Wings selected forward Rasmus Bodin. He is a big player from Sweden who is listed as being 6-foot-6 and 207 pounds, and he is the final player the Red Wings selected in the 2012 NHL Draft.

Bodin played for Östersunds IK in Sweden last season. In the J18 Elit division, he scored nine goals and had 17 assists for 26 points in 29 games. In Division 1, Bodin had three goals and seven assists for 10 points in 20 games.

The Red Wings have certainly had success with Swedish players in the past, especially later in the draft. Just look at Henrik Zetterberg, who was the 210th overall pick in 1999. Let's hope years from now we're talking about Bodin and the 200th overall pick as an example of a steal for the Red Wings.

Here's a look at all six of the Red Wings' 2012 NHL Draft picks:

Round 2 (49) - RW Martin Frk

Round 3 (80) - G Jake Paterson

Round 4 (110) - C/LW Andreas Athanasiou

Round 5 (140) - D Michael McKee

Round 6 (170) - D James De Haas

Round 7 (200) - C/LW Rasmus Bodin
