PITTSBURGH (KDKA) – After trading Matt Murray to the Ottawa Senators, the Penguins have five selections in the 2020 NHL Entry Draft.

In return for Murray, the Penguins acquired forward Jonathan Gruden and a 2020 second-round draft pick. With that pick, the Penguins selected goaltender Joel Blomqvist at 52nd overall.

He is from Finland.

In the third round, the Penguins picked another goaltender at 77th overall. Calle Clang is a native of Sweden.

The Penguins later traded the 139th pick to Colorado for picks 149 and 211.
