For the second year in a row, no Wolverines were selected in the opening round of the NHL Entry Draft. As expected, John Tavares, Victor Hedman, and one time Michigan State verbal commitment Matt Duchene went 1-2-3 in the draft.
Michigan recruits should see action in the second round, which kicks off at 10 a.m.
JOHNSON STILL WITH KINGS
A few weeks ago there was a rumor trade between the Anaheim Ducks and Los Angeles Kings that would have sent former U-M defenseman Jack Johnson to the Ducks as part of a deal for Chris Pronger.
Pronger did get traded on draft day, but it wasn’t to the Kings. The All-Star defenseman, along with Ryan Dingle, was traded to Philadelphia for Joffrey Lupul, Luca Sbisa, and a pair of first round draft picks.
