10 NCAA Skaters Selected on 2nd Day of NHL Entry Draft
No less than 10 players who played NCAA Division I college hockey last season were chosen on the second day of the 2012 NHL Entry Draft held Saturday at the Consol Energy Center in Pittsburgh.
Phillip Di Giuseppe of Michigan (CCHA) went 38th overall to the Carolina Hurricanes
Jake McCabe of Wisconsin (WCHA) went 44th overall to the Buffalo Sabres
Shayne Gostisbehere (pictured) of Union (ECAC) went 78th overall to the Philadelphia Flyers
Austin Wuthrich of Notre Dame (CCHA) went 107th overall to the Washington Capitals
Joey Laleggia of Denver (WCHA) went 123rd overall to the Edmonton Oilers
Brendan Woods of Wisconsin (WCHA) went 129th overall to Carolina
John McCarron of Cornell (ECAC) went 153rd overall to Edmonton
Dmitry Sinitsyn of UMass-Lowell (Hockey East) went 183rd overall to the Dallas Stars
Joakim Ryan of Cornell (ECAC) went 198th overall to the San Jose Sharks
Jaycob Megna of Nebraska-Omaha (WCHA) went 210th overall to the Anaheim Ducks
No college players from the 2011-12 season were chosen in the first round of the draft on Friday.
Wuthrich also holds the distinction of being the final CCHA player to be drafted, as the league will disband following the 2012-13 campaign, with three of its teams (Michigan, Michigan State, Ohio State) going to the new Big Ten Conference and the rest to a revamped WCHA.
