SDSS Hockey Academy graduate selected in 5th round by Montreal Canadiens
After breakout campaign with the Vancouver Giants, SDSS Hockey Academy graduate and South Delta Minor Hockey graduate Brendan Gallagher was selected in the fifth round by the Montreal Canadians in last weekend's NHL Entry Draft.
That means Gallagher will be heading to Montreal on Friday to attend a three-day rookie camp, with another trip east for the Canadians main camp likely in September.
The 18-year-old from Tsawwassen says, "It's a good thing I got drafted before round five because I wasn't going to be home for the final two rounds," he laughed. "I didn't have a lot of expectations going into it but of course I'm very excited now and what lies ahead."
