UND Hockey: Where Did They End up

By

After the last round of the 2019 NHL Draft, I had a conversation with my buddy Redwing77. We discussed the various hockey analyst’s predraft rankings and how the draft played out.

First, the analyst’s rankings were all over the place. That’s understandable because there really isn’t an exact science for predicting the draft. Surprise picks throws off everyone else’s draft boards. Looking at the different analyst’s rankings, there really was no rhythm or reason to them.

Where Did They End UP?

Here’s how UND’s recruits fared during the 2019 NHL Draft. Some of them were drafted and others weren’t. I used the links from Schlossman’s article at the Herald. I added a few of my favorite sites/blogs. I also added DU incoming freshman Bobby Brink for obvious reasons.

Here’s a list of incoming UND hockey players, their NHL Draft rankings and what team selected them. Obviously, a few of them were ranked but weren’t drafted.
