Saturday, the Chicago Blackhawks made Beau Starrett the 88th overall pick, selecting the Framingham, Mass., native in the third round. Starrett played for the South Shore Kings of the USPHL last season and will be joining the Big Red for the 2015-16 campaign.
Another prospect a year off was taken by the Pittsburgh Penguins, as they took center Anthony Angello with the 145th overall selection in the fifth round, as the 17-year-old from Manilus, N.Y., will be joining the Big Red in 2015-16 after his tenure with the Omaha Lancers of the USHL.
A little later in the draft, two players that should see action sooner than later in Ithaca had their NHL rights selected in the seventh round.
Jared Fiegl, who is joining Cornell this upcoming season after his time with the U.S. National Team Development Program, was selected 191st overall by the Arizona Coyotes. The Colorado native was part of the recently-announced roster for the 2014-15 campaign.
Another new addition to the Big Red, Dwyer Tschantz, was taken 202nd overall by the St. Louis Blues. Tschantz, who played last year for the Indiana Ice of the USHL, is a Delaware native.
