With their final three picks, the Flames took a pair of college players and a Russian defender out of the MHL.
6'3" forward Tim Harrison was chosen 157th overall. Harrison spent his season playing for a prep highschool where he scored 30 points in 17 games. He's committed to Colgate college next year and wasn't even ranked by CSS.
Next up (187th overall), Rushan Rafikov became the first Russian player drafted by Calgary since they took Andrei Taratukhin in 2001. Rafikov is 6'01" and 185 pounds and info on him beyond that is scarce.
Finally, at 198 Calgary chose 20 year old defender Paul Gilmour out of Providence College. At just 5'11" and 185 pounds, Gilmour isn't very big and his offensive numbers are just okay as well. Flames scounts no doubt saw a lot out of Gilmour since he played with Jon Gillies and Mark Jankowski this year.
None of these guys is a prospect of note and probably won't challenge for a pro job, let alone an NHL spot. Still, sometimes a rare late rounder can surprise.
