Rockets Taken in NHL Draft
- Updated: June 24, 2012
A total of three Kelowna Rockets players were selected in the 2012 NHL Entry Draft in Pittsburgh.
Colton Sissons and Damon Severson were both selected in the second round of the 2012 NHL Entry Draft Saturday in Pittsburgh while centre Ryan Olsen, acquired by Kelowna this off-season, was also drafted.
Sissons was chosen 50th overall by the Nashville Predators while Severson was selected 10 spots later at the 60th spot by the New Jersey Devils. Olsen was chosen in the sixth round by the Winnipeg Jets.
Olsen, a 6-foot-3 centre, was acquired by Kelowna in an off season trade that saw Shane McColgan and Jessey Astles traded to Saskatoon.
All three drafted players will be in Rockets’ uniforms for the 2012-13 WHL season.
