For those unaware, the Ice will be going dormant starting the 2014-15 season. So because of that, all players previously drafted or protected by the Ice had to be made available in today’s dispersal draft. Players heading off to college this fall were drafted as well.
Click here to view all of the picks made today in the dispersal draft. I will highlight the three players drafted by Lincoln below.
1st round: Troy Terry (’97) - Forward - 5’10”, 160 pounds
A native of Highlands Ranch, CO, Terry was originally selected by the Indiana Ice in the 3rd round of the 2013 USHL Futures Draft. Last season, Troy played for the Colorado Thunderbirds U16 program where he scored 41 points (16g, 25a) in 31 games played. Terry has committed to play his college hockey at Denver University. Troy’s linemate with the U16 Thunderbirds last season was Brian Hawkinson, the younger brother of former Stars forward Brad Hawkinson. I’ve been told that Troy has a very good opportunity at making the Stars' roster in 2014-15. Click here to follow Troy on Twitter.
2nd round: Tyler Augustinsen (’97) - Forward - 6’0”, 185 pounds
A native of West Hartford, CT, Augustinsen was originally selected by the Indiana Ice in the 18th round of the 2013 USHL Entry Draft. Last season, Tyler played for the Selects Hockey Academy U16 program where he scored 28 points (11g, 17a) in 24 games played. Tyer just finished up his junior year at South Kent School in South Kent, CT. Tyler is has not committed to a college to my knowledge. Click here to follow Tyler on Twitter.
3rd round: Joe Sullivan (’94) - Forward - 5'10", 187 pounds
Sullivan played 58 games for the Indiana Ice last season and scored 22 points (6g, 16a). He will be enrolling at St. Lawrence University this fall where he will play his college hockey. There's very little chance Joe will play for the Lincoln Stars next season. As I stated above, every player on the Ice main and affiliate rosters were drafted today, even those set to enroll at colleges this fall.
Hopefully we see both Troy Terry and Tyler Augustinsen at Lincoln's tryout camp next month.
