The North American Hockey League held its annual entry draft yesterday with the Titans having seven picks in the draft. The consensus: The Titans got bigger and beefier.
With the seven picks, the Titans selected five forwards, one defenseman and one goalie with the average birth year being a 2002. The average size is 6’0” and the weight is 175 lbs.
The Titans selected forward Hunter Newhouse from Minnetonka High School (Minnetonka, MN) with their first pick (26th overall). With the second pick, the Titans selected goaltender Josh Rosenzweig from the Niagara IceDogs (OHL). The lone defenseman selected was Tyler Sanborn, a 6’3” right-handed shot from the Charleston Colonials.
Two of the Titans picks (Newhouse and Jackson Borst) played Minnesota High School ice hockey this past season.
“The draft is always such an exciting time of the year for both players and teams alike” stated Titans head coach and general manager Craig Doremus. “There is so much work put into the draft process. Our staff underwent some changes throughout the year, and I was really proud of the work they put in. Scouting is such a fine art and I really enjoyed working with our guys through the process. We are thrilled with our player pool and excited to have these guys come to camp in July. We addressed areas we felt we needed to upgrade and added some really good depth at other positions. Camp should be a terrific week of competition. It’s a great time to be a Titan” concluded Doremus.
