USHL Drafts start this week

Usually the USHL holds two drafts but with the addition of Dubuque and Muskegon this year, the USHL will hold three.  Dubuque and Muskegon will participate in the Expansion Draft and the entire league will participate in the Futures Draft and the Entry Draft.

The USHL Expansion Draft will start Monday, May 17 around noon central time after Muskegon and Dubuque receives a list of unprotected players currently on USHL rosters.
The USHL Futures Draft will begin Tuesday, May 18 at 10:00am CST.
The USHL Entry Draft will begin Wednesday, May 19 at 10:00am CST.

The Futures Draft is a five or six round process in which USHL teams will pick five players, usually for the future (although one or two players may make the roster this year), from the 1994 draft class.

The Entry Draft is the main draft in which USHL teams form their roster.

For more information on the USHL drafts, see the links above and visit the USHL website.

It would have been really nice to get Tyson Fulton here too. He went to school with Joey and was captain of the Breck High School hockey team this year. Getting Liam,Eamonn's brother, also would have been a great add to the team, we missed two players I personally think should have been added to the team!!!

Did anyone take Fulton in the draft? If they didn't he still has a shot if he wants to tryout. If Liam is anything like Eamonn then yes we did miss out!

Ya Waterloo took Tyson... Liam would have been a great addition to the team. I think knowing Eamonn i think Liam would have been like him. Tyson from watching games on the tv during the championship was a FANTASTIC player!!!! We missed out on some great players who would have been great additions and a great help to the team!!
