DALLAS – In the third round of the 2018 NHL Draft, Jordan Harris became the first New England-based defenseman to come off the board.
The Kimball Union blueliner was selected by the Montreal Canadiens with the 71st overall pick, all ahead of his Northeastern career getting underway in 2018-19.
“It’s a whirlwind right now," Harris said. "It’s a tremendous honor to be drafted by a team like Montreal with its past. I’m extremely grateful."
