Tarasenko was the Blues’ first round selection (16th overall) in the 2010 NHL Entry Draft while Wannstrom was chosen in the second round (44th overall).

Tarasenko, 19, a native of Yaroslavl, Russia, has played 35 games this season with Novosibirsk Siber in Russia’s Kontinental Hockey League (KHL) tallying 16 points including eight goals and eight assists.

On the international level, Tarasenko also represented Russia at the 2010 World Junior Championships, tying for the team lead in goals (four) and finished third overall in points (five).

Wannstrom, 19, a native of Gavle, Sweden, has made 26 appearances this season with Brynas IF Gavle of the Swedish Elite League (SEL) recording two assists and four penalty minutes. In 2009-10, the 6’1, 180-pound forward split time between Brynas IF and Brynas Junior of Sweden’s Junior Elite League.

In 18 games with Brynas IF, Wannstrom posted two penalty minutes while in 35 games with Brynas Junior he led the league with 30 goals and 57 points (30 goals, 27 assists).
