Based on this article I think we can assume that Trevor Moore, Garrett Gamez, Will Butcher & Gage Ausmus will have a shot at being drafted this summer by NHL teams.

If so, I believe it will be the first time four DU recruits were selected in the same draft.

You can correct me if I'm wrong.

Butcher is being projected as a 2nd round pick & Ausmus is a projected third rounder.

Moore is a wildcard. His performance this season will surely move him up this summer.

I found this link to a really good website that shows we had 4 guys drafted in the same draft 2 years ago. DG, you should really start reading this website. I think you'll find some good material for the blog.

Kidding aside, this looks like a fantastic recruiting class. Really looking forward to seeing them suit up as Pios.
