Girgenson's set for NHL draft night

Posted:

Former Dubuque Fighting Saint Zemgus Girgensons is set to have a good night Friday.  The Latvian import is almost a lock to be selected in the first round of this year's NHL draft.

Girgensons, who scored 26 times last season, is the 18th ranked prospect by NHL Central Scouting.  Some projections have him going as high as 5th overall.

Teammate Mike Matheson is also expected to be selected either late in the first round or early in the second.

The NHL draft begins at 6 PM on Friday.
