USHL Draft: McCormick Goes #5 Overall To Sioux City

2010 USHL Entry Draft Players With Wisconsin Ties

First Round
#5. Max McCormick-(Notre Dame Academy)-Sioux City (De Pere, WI; Ohio State Commit)

Third Round
#35. Jake Suter-(Owatana NAHL)-Sioux City (Oregon, WI)

Fourth Round
#50. Noah Nelson-(Milwaukee Jr. Admirals)-Sioux Falls (Oconomowoc, WI)

Fifth Round
#72. Peter Maric-(Milwaukee Jr. Admirals)-Cedar Rapids (Milwaukee, WI)

Eighth Round
#110. Will Butcher-(Madison Capitols minors)-Sioux City (Sun Prarie, WI)
#112. Tyler Lundey-(Wichita NAHL)-Dubuque (Middleton, WI)

Bit of a surprise in the 8th round as Sioux City takes a shot on 1995 born Will Butcher from the Madison Capitols. I've mentioned MULTIPLE times on this website that Butcher has the tools to be an absolute star and apparently head coach and GM Luke Strand feels the same way.

Round Eleven
#156. Garret Clemment-(Wausau West)-Muskegon (Wasau, WI)

Found Fifteen
#223. Jakob Batcha-(Milwaukee Jr. Admirals)-Fargo (Fredonia, WI)

Also of note in the 15th round is that Boston University forward Vinny Saponari, was drafted by Dubuque. Saponari was recently kicked off of BU for conduct detrimental to the program. He was recruited hard by Wisconsin who finished second in the race for his services.

Round Seventeen
#242. Ryan Belonger-(St. Louis Bandits NAHL)-Youngstown (Green Bay, WI)
#245. Cliff Watson-(Appleton United)-Sioux City (Appleton, WI)

Round Eighteen
#270. CJ Eick-(St. Louis Bandits NAHL)-Green Bay (Appleton, WI)

Round Nineteen
#280. Tim Smith-(Owatana NAHL)-Indiana (Superior, WI)

Round Twenty
#290. Danny Sherer-(Milwaukee Jr. Admirals)-Sioux City (Nashotah, WI)
