With two slots in the lucky fifth round, the Dallas Stars used all their picks during the second day of the 2016 NHL Draft. You want size, speed, hockey IQ, a certain level of Swedishness? If you have a prospect fetish, you probably got served.

Say hello to the newest members of the Victory Green Brigade, with their draft positions and current teams:

Some of the new prospects shared their excitement on social media, and now you know where to find them.

Meanwhile, the Stars would like you to learn more about left wing Riley Tufte (starting with his name, which is pronounced TUF-tee). Here's the new first-rounder in Victory Green, mic'ed up.

Razor, who knows a little about goaltending, explained why the move benefits Captain America as much as anyone.

And Jim Nill spoke his mind at the end of it all with Josh Bogorad.

There was plenty going on elsewhere this weekend, including with the Panthers, who dealt defender Dmitry Kulikov and the No. 33 pick to the Sabres for blueliner Mark Pysyk and picks 38 and 89.

Rumors abounded on Friday night that the Lightning and the Stars were working on a Ben Bishop trade.
