Penguins/NHL Videos

With his family pedigree and stout resume, Brendan Lemieux was sure he was a first-round pick.

One weekend into his NHL career, he already had first taste of disappointment when he was passed over on the first day of the draft. But he had a short wait on Saturday.

The Buffalo Sabres opened the second day of the draft by selecting the forward with the 31st overall pick.

Lemieux is the son of former New Jersey Devils star and Stanley Cup champion Claude Lemieux.

• The Blackhawks traded forward Brandon Bollig to the Flames for a third-round selection in the NHL Draft. Bollig had seven goals and seven assists in 82 games this season, and had an assist in 15 playoff games.

• The Maple Leafs acquired defenseman Roman Polak from the Blues in exchange for defenseman Carl Gunnarsson and the No. 94 pick in the draft.
