A pair of #1s: Oettinger and Bowers selected in draft’s first round

Goalie Jake Oettinger and incoming freshman center Shane Bowers became the 16th and 17th Terriers selected in the first round of an NHL Entry Draft. Oettinger, Central Scouting's  top-rated North American netminder and a Hockey East All-Rookie selection, went to Dallas at #26 after the Stars traded to move up three places. Two picks later, Bowers, the Halifax native who played for USHL Waterloo the past two seasons, was selected by Ottawa. The Senators reportedly also had been interested in the Terrier goalie.

Oettinger was preceded one spot in the draft by St. Cloud sophomore Ryan Poehling, who grew up two blocks from Oettinger in Lakeville, Minnesota.
