The United States Hockey League (USHL) held its annual draft Monday and Tuesday of this week to select prospective players for the 15 league teams.
While the league’s footprint is in the Midwest, there are plenty of talented players from New England or those with connections to the region who were selected in the proceedings.
Phase I was Monday night where league teams could select only players born in 2003. Tuesday’s Phase II was for any player eligible to play junior hockey in 2019-20, which includes 1999 through 2003.
Paul Davey of Greenwich, Conn. was the only New England native chosen in the first round of Monday night’s Phase I. A sophomore at Brunswick School, Davey is a left wing committed to Boston College. He was taken with the eighth overall pick by the Des Moines Buccaneers.
