The first round of the 2010 NHL Entry Draft can been seen at 6 p.m. Friday on the Versus network. Northland hockey fans should get a chance to see Duluth defenseman Derek Forbort try on a jersey and cap from an NHL team as a projected first-round pick.
The News Tribune has a Friday story here focusing on Forbort and Minnesota Duluth recruit Justin Faulk of South St. Paul, who were teammates last season with the USA U18 team in Ann Arbor, Mich.
Forbort is headed for the University of North Dakota this fall and the Grand Forks Herald has a story here about recruits who may be drafted in the next two days at Staples Center in Los Angeles.
The NHL website also has video of Forbort here which is exclusively from his Duluth East High School season of 2008-09 before playing with USA Hockey in 2009-10.
