Two Owen Sound Minor Lacrosse grads; Jake McNabb & Jordan Caskenette were selected during the proceedings.
McNabb who scored 26 goals for the St Catharines Athletics in Junior A play last year went in the 2nd round to Colorado.
The Toronto Rock chose Caskenette in the 6th round.
Caskenette scored 4 times this year for the Minto Cup Champion Orangeville Northmen last season.

The Owen Sound Attack Season Opener & Home Opener is Saturday when they host the Ottawa 67's.
In a bit of split, Owen Sound has not won a Season Opener since 2015 when they won 5-4 in overtime at Kitchener on a goal by Bryson Cianfrone.
However for their Home Openers, Owen Sound has got at least a point in their last 8 straight games. The Attack have 6 wins and 2 Shootout losses in the Home Opener dating back to 2010 when they whacked Guelph 8-1.
We'll see what transpires Saturday when the Attack open at home against the defending Eastern Conference Champion Ottawa 67's.
