ST. PAUL, Minn. (KDKA) – The Pittsburgh Penguins turned some heads on Friday night by selecting a defenseman with their first-round pick in the 2011 NHL Draft.

On Saturday, the Penguins continued the trend and selected Scott Harrington in the second round with the 54th overall pick.

The 6-foot 200-pound defenseman had 22 points (six goals, 16 assists) for the London Knights of the Ontario Hockey League last year.

In the fifth round, the Penguins selected Dominik Uher from the Spokane Chiefs of the Western Hockey League with the 144th overall pick.

The 6-foot 195-pound center recorded 60 points (21 goals, 39 assists) in 65 games for the Chiefs last season.

In the sixth round, the Penguins selected winger Josh Archibald with the 174th overall pick.

Archibald spent last season with Brainerd High School in Minnesota.

With their final pick in the draft, the Penguins selected forward Scott Wilson 209th overall.

Wilson spent last season with the Georgetown Raiders of the Ontario Junior Hockey League.

The Penguins selected Joseph Morrow with the 23rd overall pick Friday night.
