Other Michigan players selected in NHL Draft
Saturday, July 24, 2021

(UNDATED) – The selection of University of Michigan defenseman Owen Power was the start of what turned into a historic night for Michigan hockey. The expansion Seattle Kraken followed by choosing Wolverines center Matthew Beniers at No. 2. It marked the first time since 1969 that college teammates went with the first two selections. Three picks later, Michigan became college hockey's first program to have three teammates go in the first round after the Columbus Blue Jackets selected Wolverines winger Kent Johnson fifth. That's not all, however. Luke Hughes, who is committed to playing at Michigan, was chosen fourth overall by the the Devils, where the defenseman is united with brother Jack, who was the No. 1 pick in the 2019 draft.
