CHICAGO (KWWL) -

 While the Dubuque Fighting Saints still have this year to think about, they, along with the Waterloo Black Hawks and Cedar Rapids Roughriders, will be looking toward the future next week.

The USHL draft is set for May 4-5 as teams look to build Clark Cup contending squads.

Phase I will take place on May 4 consisting of 10 rounds. During Phase I, teams will draft players born in 1999. While a few will play on USHL rosters immediately, most Phase I players will play in other leagues during the next season.

Phase II, conducted the following day, allows teams to draft players born between 1995 and 1999. The number of rounds for the second phase is not pre-determined.
