Selects Hockey to Dominate the 2018 NHL Draft

In 2017, 40 Selects alumni were drafted in the NHL draft and currently over 10% of the players in the NHL this season played for the Selects Hockey program in their minor hockey career. 2018 is shaping up to be an even stronger year for the Selects program, as 70 former players made the NHL Central Scouting Midterm Draft list.  Take a look for yourself below at the list of alumni who. 

Yes, 10% of the current NHL pros once wore the Selects logo. Last year we saw Cody Glass, Western Canada Selects alum, become the first ever franchise draftee of the Las Vegas Golden Knights, followed by five other alumni drafted by the NHL's newest team.  Dr. Lyndon Jones, father of Las Vegas Knight, Ben Jones, credited his son’s time as a Selects Hockey athlete as the key to getting drafted. "Had we not attended that Selects tryout on January 2nd, 2011, we would never have realized that Ben was quite a decent hockey player compared with others in his age group! This ended up with him playing for the Marlies, which resulted in him being drafted to the OHL and him subsequently being drafted to the NHL this past weekend"

Every year begins a new talent search for Joe Templin and Kathy Pippy, directors of both the boys and girls programs respectively.  Joe and Kathy, and their team, recruit all over North America and Europe at top AAA tournaments looking for the best youth hockey players for their Boys and Girls Spring teams.  These teams create a pipeline rich in talent that feeds our Selects Academy at South Kent School (Boys) and Bishop Kearney (Girls) programs.  Both programs provide a unique combination of Prep School academics with Elite-level AAA Midget hockey.  Selects Hockey also offers unique life experiences like traveling to Europe to participate in the World Selects Invitational (WSI), an event similar to the Olympics, but for kids, which features the best hockey talent from up to 12 different countries including Sweden, Russia, Finland and Czech Republic among others.  There are nearly 100 players ranked for the 2018 NHL draft which played in the WSI!
