Two ex-Stars players drafted

TRAVERSE CITY — Two former Traverse City North Stars players joined Brandon Halverson to give TC quite the representation in Saturday’s NHL Entry Draft.

Former North Stars goalie Zach Nagelvoort was picked in the fourth round (111th overall) by the Edmonton Oilers, while forward Kyle Schempp was chosen in the sixth round as the 155th overall pick by the New York Islanders.

As a freshman for the Michigan Wolverines, Nagelvoort started 22 games, finishing the season with an 11-9-3 record and 2.20 goals against average (15th in the NCAA). His season save percentage of .929 is second all-time for U-M netminders. He also set a new school single-game mark with 63 saves against Penn State in the opening Big Ten Tournament round.Nagelvoort is the first Michigan goaltender to go in the NHL draft since 2006, when Billy Sauer was selected with the 201st overall pick by the Colorado Avalanche.

Schempp, who tallied 10 goals and 25 points in 43 contests as a freshman in the 2013-14 campaign, became the first Bulldog skater to be drafted since former standout defenseman and Traverse City native Zach Redmond was chosen in the seventh round in 2008.

Ironically, one of Schempp’s goals in a highlight video posted on the Ferris State website is scored against Nagelvoort. The two were teammates in 2011-12 with Traverse City.
