Maxime Sauve was selected with the 47th overall pick, held by the Boston Bruins, in the 2008 draft on Saturday morning.
"I'm a speed player with good skills and good offense," he said. He has solid NHL bloodlines as well; his father, Jean-Francois Sauve, played for Buffalo and Quebec; his uncle, Bob Sauve, is a former NHL goaltender; and his cousin Philippe Sauve also played in the NHL, at one point, with the Bruins. Sauve displayed his skills at the World U-18 tournament, helping Canada earn a gold medal.
