Fort Saskatchewan Bantam AAA Rangers proved to be the elite company in this year's draft.
Seven players were selected by Western Hockey League clubs.
Noah Boyko went in the first round (16 overall) to the Lethbridge Hurricanes. Boyko had a phenomenal season putting up 52 points in 33 games and adding 18 more in playoffs.
Not too long after, projected first round pick Sebastian Cossa was selected by the Edmonton Oil Kings in the second round (36 overall). Cossa was named league MVP, leading the Rangers all the way to Westerns.
The Oil Kings drafted another local with their next pick, snagging playoff hero Raphael Pelletier in the third round (48 overall). Pelletier scored 11 goals during the Rangers playoff run with none bigger than his five goal performance in the North Finals against St. Albert.
Still waiting to hear his name called, captain Alex Thacker was drafted in the sixth round (117 overall) by the Swift Current Broncos. The centerman had 57 points in 36 games while proving to be a leader on the biggest stage.
"I was pretty surprised actually, I was just looking at the draft and my name popped up," said Thacker. "I was pretty pumped, it's a good feeling."
The picks kept coming as Riley Fiddler-Schultz was selected by the Calgary Hitmen in the seventh round (148 overall). Fiddler-Schultz put up 40 points in 36 games.
Swift Current chose to add another Ranger to their list when they drafted defenceman Daron Cyr in the seventh round (154 overall). Cyr was an anchor on the point for the boys in blue leading both special teams units.
The day wasn't over yet as Jacob Boucher made his impact felt in the finals against the Lethbridge Goldenhawks. Boucher was rewarded by being selected by the Lethbridge Hurricanes in the ninth round (187 overall).
The selected players will be attending rookie camp with their respective teams in the fall with hopes of making it to main camp.
