Many New York Islanders prospects had exceptional seasons in 2013-14. Multiple pro prospects exceeded expectations and their junior, collegiate, and European prospects all took strides in their development.
The 2011 version of the USHL Futures Draft was completed on Tuesday as 90 players in the 1995 birth year age group were selected by USHL Member Clubs.
FULL DRAFT RESULTS
The Waterloo Black Hawks opened the Futures Draft at 10:00 AM by selecting high-scoring forward Taylor Cammarata who put up 126 points (64g, 62a) in 48 games this season for the Shattuck-St. Mary’s U-16 team. The Fargo Force acquired the second pick via trade with the Chicago Steel and with that selection, the Force chose forward Gabe Guertler who was the first of five players from the Team Illinois hockey program drafted on Tuesday. The Dubuque Fighting Saints picked the first defenseman of the Futures Draft when they chose Michael Downing from Detroit Central Catholic High School with the third pick of the first round.
Among the 90 players selected on Tuesday were 68 forwards, 28 defensemen, and four goaltenders.
