Nigerian Forward taken in draft
If you read that title, what sport comes to mind? The NBA of course. The Chicago Bulls took a forward in today's 2nd round...wait, what? That was the Chicago Blackhawks? Nigerian HOCKEY forward Akim Aliu was taken by the Blackhawks with their second-round pick. Surprisingly, he isn't the first Nigerian to play in the NHL. Anyway, I thought this was an interesting story, more on it here.
