Force prospects taken in NHL Draft

Shattuck-St. Mary's product, Jimmy Mullin will be playing for the Force this year and was a 4th round selection from the Tampa Bay Lightning (118th overall).

Fargo Force prospect, Tanner Lane, from Detroit Lakes was selected in the 6th round (160th overall) by the Atlanta Thrashers.

Future Force goaltender, Zane Gothberg from Thief River Falls was also selected in the 6th round by the Boston Bruins (165th overall).

Congrats to all of the Fargo Force prospects/players drafted.

Thanks to sparky81 in the comments section of this entry, we have learned that Joe Basaraba (drafted 69th overall by the Florida Panthers) will not be coming to Fargo but rather the University of Minnesota-Duluth next season. Basaraba was a former futures pick of the Fargo Force.

I was also shocked that Nate Schmidt was not drafted! There were alot of other D taken that are totally unproven. He clearly proved himself offensively during the season. The only knock on him from Central Scouting was that he did not develop on the defensive side of the rink all year. Garrett Allen was not even a sniff..
