Michigan players taken in Futures Draft

Aside from the six players the Muskegon Lumberjacks selected during Tuesday’s United States Hockey League Futures Draft, the state of Michigan was well-represented as several Michigan-based players were drafted by other USHL teams.

 In the first round, Orchard Lake St. Mary’s forward Cody Milan went ninth overall to the Sioux Falls Stampede and then six picks later, the Tri-City Storm tabbed Belle Tire midget minor forward Dylan Pavelek.

Honeybaked forward Dakota Joshua saw his name come across the computer screen in the third round as he became the property of the Stampede.

The Lincoln Stars grabbed Little Caesars forward Gordon Helmuth in round four, a round that also saw Compuware forward Roman Gaudet go to the Chicago Steel and Belle Tire forward Anthony Petrella get picked by the defending USHL champion Dubuque Fighting Saints.

Belle Tire forward Austin Kamer was taken in the fifth round by the Cedar Rapids RoughRiders and River Rymsha from St. Mary’s went to the Fargo Force.
