Dougie Hamilton to the Bruins

We've skipped over some of the picks, but since this is a Bruins-centric blog, we'll bring you the post-pick video of newest Boston defender Dougie Hamilton.

To be honest, we didn't expect Hamilton to be there at ninth overall, but when the Winnipeg Jets went off the board to pick Barrie center Mark Scheifele seventh overall, the Flyers took Sean Couturier eighth, leaving the Bruins the choice between dynamic, undersized Kitchener defender Ryan Murphy and the bigger, offensively-savvy blueliner Hamilton who weighs in at 6-4.

Here's the video of Hamilton, but remember that B2011DW made the case for Dougie in Boston way back in January. We lost sight of him a bit because Toronto's pick fell from fifth at the time to ninth, but the B's got their man.
