Six Manitobans Selected At The 2016 NHL Entry Draft

A Manitoba six-pack –

Last year Keegan Kolesar was the lone Manitoban selected in the 2015 NHL Entry Draft but Manitoba rebounded with six selections this past Friday in Buffalo, New York.

Leading the way was Oakbank’s Brett Howden.  He was the only Manitoban drafted in Friday night’s first round.  Howden was the highest ranked Manitoban by NHL’s Central Scouting (22nd) and ended up being selected 27th overall by the Tampa Bay Lightning.
