NHL Draft: Where Are All the Prospects Going?

nhl draft logoThe first round of the NHL Draft was held Friday night, with winger Taylor Hall going first overall to the Edmonton Oilers.

Perhaps not surprisingly, only one current college player was drafted. Center Riley Sheahan of Notre Dame was drafted 21st overall by the Detroit Red Wings.

Of course, many players who are drafted into the NHL will go to college, with the team drafting them maintaining the rights to that player.

Here’s the colleges where players who were drafted committed to:

14. Jaden Schwartz, C, St. Louis Blues: Colorado College

15. Derek Forbort, D, Los Angeles Kings: University of North Dakota

19. Nick Bjugstad, C, Florida Panthers: University of Minnesota

20. Beau Bennett, RW, Pittsburgh Penguins: University of Denver

22. Jarred Tinordi, D, Montreal Canadiens: Notre Dame

24. Kevin Hayes, RW, Chicago Blackhawks: Boston College

28. Charlie Coyle, RW/C, San Jose Sharks: Boston University

30. Brock Nelson, C, New York Islanders: University of North Dakota
