The Devils made a late trade for the 208th overall pick and one of the final ones in the seventh round. Brodeur took the microphone and announced Anthony's name. Brodeur waited at the team's draft table to present his 18-year-old son, also a goaltender, with a jersey.

Anthony Brodeur's friends and family in the stands erupted in cheers.

"I'm trying to create my own name," Anthony Brodeur said, "not on being Martin Brodeur's son."

The rest of the teams were busy planning their future through youth.

The Florida Panthers made center Aleksander Barkov, the top-ranked European skater, the second overall pick. Tampa Bay took forward Jonathan Drouin, also out of Halifax, with the third overall pick.

The Nashville Predators pounced on defenseman Seth Jones with the fourth overall pick. Jones, a 6-4, 205-pound defenseman, was widely considered the top prospect. He was the top player on the NHL Central Scouting's final list of North American skaters.

He is the son of former NBA forward Popeye Jones, who paced the floor of the Prudential Center and said Seth slept great and was calm in the final hours leading up to the draft. But that had to change just a bit when Jones, who played for Portland of the Western Hockey League last season, slipped to fourth.

Carolina selected Elias Lindholm, who played in Sweden, fifth and the Calgary Flames followed with center Sean Monahan from Ottawa of the Ontario Hockey League.

After picking first the last three years, the Edmonton Oilers Nurse, a defenseman out of Saulte Ste. Marie in the OHL, with the seventh choice. Nurse is the nephew of McNabb, the former Philadelphia Eagles quarterback.

McNabb was famously booed by Eagles fans in the 1999 draft and was hurt for years by the reaction. Nurse heard polite applause in Newark.

"We're even, because he went higher than me," Nurse said, "but I didn't get booed at my draft."

The Buffalo Sabres took Finnish defenseman Rasmus Ristolainen with the eighth overall pick.

The Prudential Center hosted the draft for the first time. Commissioner Gary Bettman was drowned out by boos each time he took the podium. But he finally heard cheers when he announced the Devils were on the clock. It became louder when Bettman announced the Devils traded the ninth pick to Vancouver for Schneider.

"I think you guys are going to want to hear this," Bettman told the crowd.

Schneider was on the market once the Canucks were unable to dump high-priced goalie Roberto Luongo. Vancouver then selected center Bo Horvat, of London (OHL), with the ninth pick. The Dallas Stars selected forward Valeri Nichushkin, of Russia, with the 10th pick.

The Flyers bucked tradition with the 11th pick and drafted a defenseman, 6-foot-6, 203-pound Samuel Morin. He played for Rimouski of the QMJHL.

The Stanley Cup champion Chicago Blackhawks ended the first round by picking forward Ryan Hartman, of Plymouth (OHL), with the 30th pick. The Blackhawks later traded Game 6 star Dave Bolland to the Toronto Maple Leafs for three draft picks.

Bolland snapped a 2-2 tie with the winner in the final minute Monday to give the Blackhawks the lead and their second Cup in four years.
