Vannelli leads group of Gophers in 2013 NHL draft

Gophers incoming freshmen Tommy Vannelli, Taylor Cammarata, Hudson Fasching, and Michael Brodzinski were all selected in the 2013 NHL Draft at the Prudential Center in Newark, NJ. 

Vannelli was taken 47th overall by the St. Louis Blues. He was the first Gophers player off the board in Sunday's draft. Vannelli was a standout at Minnetonka High School this season. He led Minnetonka defensemen with 31 points (eight goals, 23 assists) in 25 games. Vannelli then competed in Sochi, Russia as a member of the U.S. National Development Team Program. 

Cammarata was drafted 76th overall by the New York Islanders. He played for the Waterloo Blackhawks of the USHL this season and scored 93 points (38 goals, 55 assists). Cammarata led the league in scoring named USHL Forward of the Year and USHL Player of the Year.

Fasching was taken in the four round by the Los Angeles Kings and Brodzinski was scooped up by San Jose Sharks in the fifth round.

Minnesota has now had 190 players taken in the history of the NHL draft.
