Winterhawks sweep Giants in round one

 

Portland

Winterhawks forwards Dominic Turgeon, Alex Schoenborn, Keegan Iverson and Chase

De Leo were all selected in the National Hockey League Draft Saturday.

Three

of the players went in the third round, beginning with Turgeon going 63rd

overall to the Detroit Red Wings, Schoenborn being selected 72nd

overall by the San Jose Sharks and Iverson being drafted 85th

overall by the New York Rangers. De Leo was then selected in the fourth round,

99th overall by the Winnipeg Jets.

"Watching

our players get drafted is one of the most gratifying aspects of the

job. When players come to Portland they all have goals of playing in the

NHL and today Dominic, Alex, Keegan and Chase are one step closer to reaching

that goal," said Portland Winterhawks Assistant General Manager Matt Bardsley.

"This is an exciting moment for any young player and we are excited for them

and their families."

All four players set career-highs in scoring in 2013-14,

while De Leo, Iverson and Turgeon were all invited to the U.S. National Junior Evaluation Camp, Aug. 2-9, in

Lake Placid, New York.

and 21 assists for 31 points. He added two goals and six assists for eight

points in 21 playoff games.
