The Minnesota Swarm made a franchise record ten draft picks last night, including four in the first round. Who are they, and what do they bring to the team?
With the tenth pcik, the Swarm capped off their first round run by drafting a tenacious defender, Alex Crepinsek. Want to know why Swarm fans should care? He once shut down John Grant, Jr.
With the 4th overall pick, the Minnesota Swarm went away from the giants they were selecting, and took 5' 9" Shayne Jackson, a pure goal scorer out of Limestone.
With the third overall pick, the Minnesota Swarm added even more size, taking 6'5" Kiel Matisz, a goal scoring power forward type that will give opponents headaches immediately.
At 6'6", 220 pounds, Brock Sorenson is going to add a real threat to the Swarm's transition game.
The Minnesota Swarm currently own the second, third, & fourth overall picks, as well as tenth overall.
