3 DU Players Expected To Be Drafted This Weekend


From: DU Athletics Website

Three University of Denver hockey players expect selection in the 2010 NHL Entry Draft, slated for June 25-26 at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, Calif., home arena of the Los Angeles Kings. The first round of the Draft will be televised tonight on Versus at 5 PM MT.

Incoming freshman Beau Bennett, Jason Zucker and Sam Brittain expect to hear their names called when the draft begins this weekend.

Bennett is currently ranked No. 32 among North American skaters in the final Central Scouting Rankings, while Zucker is ranked No. 51. Brittain is ranked No. 8 among North American goaltenders.

Bennett could become DU's third first-round pick if selected on Friday. Bennett would join Craig Redmond (LA Kings/1984/6th overall) and Joe Colborne (Boston/2008/16th overall) as the only players to don the crimson and gold as first round NHL selections.

I see Bennett being drafted in the 1st round by a team that has two first round picks. That means either Florida (#3,#15), Phoenix (#13,#22), Anaheim (#12,#29) or Chicago (#24,#30).

Bennett - Anaheim @ #29 is the most likely spot.

Zucker - #43 in the 2nd round by Chicago.

Brittain - #108 in the 4th Round by Calgary
