USHL Draft Recap

The United States Hockey League draft has concluded, and three Catamounts were taken in the two-phase draft.

In Phase I, the Lincoln Stars, current club of UVM commits Christian Evers and Carter Long, selected UVM’s newest recruit, Kyle Mandleur, in the fourth round. Mandleur, who currently plays for the Mercer Chiefs U16 team in Hamilton, New Jersey, committed to UVM last wek. This season, he posted 29 points in 23 games in the Atlantic Youth Hockey League U16 level. He’s already got great size, standing at 6’4″ and weighing 231 lbs according to EliteProspects, which should serve him well at the junior and college levels. Mark Bilotta, a scout for NeutralZone.net, describes him as “deceptively quick with a quick shot and a lot of momentum.” Let’s see how a few years of seasoning can up his game.

In Phase II, a pair of UVM recruits were drafted. First, in the ninth round, the Cedar Rapids RoughRiders selected Andrew Lucas. Lucas, a 5’9″ defender, was phenomonal in his junior season at Loomis Chafee school in Connecticut, earning a spot on the New England Prep School Ice Hockey Association’s First Team All-New England West, posting 28 points in 24 games according to US Hockey Report. The native of Alexandria, Virginia, is a converted forward. Jeff Cox describes him as “a very good skater who moves the puck well and gets shots on net from the point” and that “he has an active stick and his skating allows him to make up for what he lacks in size in the defensive end.”

And finally, in the sixteenth round, the Dubuque Fighting Saints took a flier on Bryce Misley. Misley is the most hyped recruit UVM has right now, and according to a source close to his junior team, the Oakville Blades, he’ll be headed to UVM next season, a year ahead of schedule. He will likely be drafted into the NHL this summer and that will likely decides if he heads to Dubuque for seasoning or straight to UVM. He played basically the entire OJHL playoffs battling a leg injury and still posted 14 points in 16 games after a 62 point regular season in 46 games. My source describes him as “wicked with the puck. A great skater, strongest asset is his playmaking, can dangle with ease,” and an “easy top-6 forward.” He’s also got solid size at 6’2.”
