Flyers take Swiss defenseman with 19th pick

The Flyers selected Swiss defenseman Luca Sbisa with the 19th pick acquired in the R.J. Umberger trade.

Sbisa is the 12th-rated North American skater by NHL Central Scouting and is the sixth-ranked defenseman on that list...The Swiss blueliner played his first season in North America in 2007-08 and had 33 points (6 goals, 27 assists) for the Lethbridge Hurricanes of the WHL...Is a smooth
skater with excellent puck-moving skills...Needs to work on becoming more physical.
