NHL Draft Day 2

I'm shocked by this, at #71 the Edmonton Oilers have selected Badger recruit Troy Hesketh from Minnetonka HS who committed during the past season. I think the Badgers got another steal here on the blue line. Baggot had mentioned he had a growth spurt recently which increased his draft stock, but now he's an Oilers prospect. Troy was not ranked in the final Central Scouting rankings.

Now add Madison's own Craig Smith to the list of drafted players. He is now a Nashville prospect going #98 in the 4th round. A couple Predators' prospect at forward for the Badgers this season, joining Blake Geoffrion.
