In Uniform: A Gallery of the First-Round Phenoms Selected in the 2011 NHL Draft

June 26, 2011

ST. PAUL, Minn. — The 2011 NHL Draft is now officially in the books. But before we jump on a plane to head back to the sweltering heat of Texas, I wanted to post the first pics of the future NHL superstars selected in Friday’s first round — in uniform — to give collectors and hockey fans a preview of what to expect in future Panini America hockey products.

We will have tons more coverage of the 2011 NHL Draft in the coming days, including additional images of Edmonton Oilers No. 1 overall pick Ryan Nugent-Hopkins and a giveaway for a hat signed by the impressive kid from Canada. So stay tuned for that — after you check out these sweet images taken by award-winning sports photographer Ric Fogel, on hand to shoot for Panini America.

    These are spectacular photos!

    I think my favourite part of the hockey draft is that the 18 and 19-year old kids LOOK LIKE 18 and 19-year old kids. Baseball, Basketball and Football players all look like fully grown men by the time they’re a freshman in college. Hockey players still have pimples and childish grins.
