The Pittsburgh Penguins drafted center Theodor Blueger from Shattuck-St. Mary’s High School (Minn.) with their second-round pick (52nd overall). Shattuck-St. Mary’s is the same school Penguins captain Sidney Crosby attended.

Blueger, 17, was ranked No. 116th overall by NHL Central Scouting.

The 6-foot, 171-pound Blueger appeared in 51 regular-season games this year with Shattuck-St. Mary’s, scoring 24 goals and 64 assists for a team-leading 88 points while leading his team to its second-straight USA Hockey National Under-18 title.

A native of Riga, Latvia, Blueger was a member of Latvia’s entry at the 2012 World Junior Championship in Calgary and Edmonton, tallying three points (1G-2A) in six games. He also represented Latvia at the World Under-18 Championships.

Blueger, who will attend Minnesota State next season, played in 105 regular-season games with Shattuck the past two years, totaling 48 goals and 154 points.
