Minnesota was well represented in day two of the National Hockey League Entry Draft, including a run of three consecutive picks of players from the west metro.

Bloomington-native Ryan Collins (Benilde-St Margaret's) along with Cottage Grove's Jack Dougherty (St. Thomas Academy) were the first two Minnesotans to have their names called.

Collins was selected 47th overall by Columbus. Dougherty went 51st to Nashville.

An interesting run occurred in the fifth round as Eden Prairie's Luc Snuggerud and Edina teammates Tyler Nanne and Miguel Fidler were taken in three consecutive selections.
