Rochester's Farrance and Dugan picked in NHL Draft
The NHL Draft wrapping up on Saturday, and two Rochester products found their new home in hockey. Victor's David Farrance was drafted in the third round with the 92nd overall pick by the Nashville Predators. Farrance has been called a new age defenseman, an offensive minded player with spectacular skating ability. There's also a familiar face down in Nashville for Farrance, fellow Victor native and the Predators Director of Player Development Scott Michol.
Farrance wasn't the only Rochester product drafted. McQuaid's Jack Dugan was picked by the Vegas Golden Knights in the fifth round with the 142nd overall pick. Dugan led McQuaid to a 2015 New York State championship before leaving for Northwood College. There, he spent the last two years playing for former Amerks coach, Chadd Cassidy. Dugan is off to the USHL to play for the Chicago Steele.
