111 Taken in USHL Draft: Phase 1
More than 100 of the top 1997-born players in the U.S. and beyond were selected Monday night in the 2013 USHL Draft: Phase 1, as 15 of the USHL's teams stocked up on prospects for this coming season and beyond.
Phase 2 of the USHL Draft takes place Tuesday, beginning at 4 p.m. CT, and will feature players born from 1993 to '98.
Phase 1 consisted of eight rounds, with 111 players selected in total. Teams that used one or both of their tenders surrendered their first- and/or second-round choices.
Indiana and Tri-City had used tenders on Cam Askew and Tory Dello, respectively, giving Des Moines the first selection in the draft. The Buccaneers selected forward Tom Novak of Minnesota's St. Thomas Academy, who has committed to play for the Golden Gophers.
A handful of other college commits were selected in the draft, including Michigan State commit Zach Osburn, Western Michigan commit Ben Blacker and Denver commit Troy Terry (all to Indiana).
