NHL Draft - Tiger Edition - 3 Players Picked
Mason Shaw was selected by the Minnesota Wild, He was the 4th pick taken in round 4, 97th overall. Here is a picture of him in his new jersey I found on twitter from a Minnesota Wild reporter
Zach Fischer was taken early in the 5th round 140th overall to the Calgary Flames. It was no surprise Fischer was taken in his second go through. His game exploded last year, going from 13 to 63 points as well as 2nd in PIMS.
More on this later. Getting drafted could increase his chances of getting plucked to the AHL. I'll look for some interviews shortly on what the flames have planned for him.
The Tigers newest goaltender acquisition was picked by the Ottawa Senators in the 6th round, 183rd overall.
Brooks Bandits and Tigers 8th round 2013 Bantam draft selection was picked 4th overall in the NHL Entry Draft. He was interviewed and asked if he still planned to commit to the NCAA route. This is what he responded with.
Q. Are you still committed to going to UMass?
Yeah, 100 percent. That's my plan for next year, and I couldn't be more excited to do that.
