Two MJHL Alumni Selected in NHL Draft

A pair of MJHL alumni were selected in the NHL draft on Saturday. Nick Henry (Portage Terriers) and Wyatt Kalynuk (Virden Oil Capitals) were selected by Colorado and Philadelphia, respectively.

Henry, who currently plays for the Regina Pats, was taken 94th overall. He’s a former MJHL rookie of the year (2015-16).

Kalynuk, who has played the last two seasons in the USHL, was selected 196th overall. He broke in with Virden as a 16-year-old three years ago.

“Congratulations to both players,” MJHL Commissioner Kim Davis said. “Their selections confirm the high talent level within our league. Every year our league and 11 teams are committed to putting the best talent on the ice each game.”
