Wisconsin AAA Goaltender Selected in OHL Draft

Goaltender Corey Morbeck of Wisconsin AAA was selected in this weekend's OHL Draft. He was taken in the 6th round by the Oshawa Generals.

Vinny Saponari, who is a potential UW recruit and currently plays for the U-17 USNTDP, was selected by the Kitchener Rangers in the twelfth round. As it is a fifteen round draft and he was selected relatively late, I'd surmise he is still likely to go the college route rather than Major Junior.

Thanks to a reader for the heads up on Morbeck's selection.
