The Saskatchewan Junior Hockey League held its annual general meetings in Nipawin on the weekend with several items on the agenda, including the bantam draft, which was held Friday morning

All six players that the Klippers chose were defencemen.

Head scout Stef Cormat said that it was a good year for that position.

“We’re very happy with the players we picked up,” he said. “It was a strong year for defencemen so we decided to take this opportunity to load up on the back end.”

For their first pick, seventh overall, they chose Chase Friedt-Mohr of Prince Albert.

He is a fifth-round Western Hockey League draft pick of the Spokane Chiefs and has committed to the P.A. Midget AAA Mintos next year.
