(The Suburban) Beaconsfieldâ€™s Alex Killorn became the highest selected Lac St. Louis Tiger in the National Hockey Leagueâ€™s entry draft held last Friday and Saturday in Columbus, Ohio, when the Tampa Bay Lightning chose the 6-foot 161-pound center in the third round, 77th overall.
â€œWe (the family) were watching the draft on the NHL network and when I heard my name being called I couldnâ€™t believe it,â€ Killorn said. â€œI got so excited and then the phone calls started to come. At least I knew it was true and the guys werenâ€™t trying to punk me. Getting selected by Tampa Bay was a real honor. They have such a great organization, I feel really fortunate.â€
