Phase II Draft Results

By Force Staff, 05/07/19, 4:00PM CDT


The Fargo Force selected 21 players in the 2019 USHL Phase II Draft today, including 14 forwards, six defensemen and one goalie. Defenseman Nick Strom was Fargo’s first pick in the draft. Strom played the 2018-19 season with the Minot Minotauros in the North American Hockey League. The defenseman out of Dayton, MN played in 60 games, recording 32 points on 4 goals and 28 assists.

For Phase II, USHL teams selected players from multiple birth years (1999-2003) looking to fill their protected lists with players who will compete for roster spots for the 2019-20 season.  Phase II continued until all USHL teams had secured 45 players on their Initial Protected List.  That list includes affiliate players from the 2018-19 season, players selected in Phase I, and players signed to a tender.
