The Nashville Predators have selected center Rem Pitlick with the first of two selections in the third round of the 2016 NHL Draft. This draft pick comes courtesy of the Predators trading away the rights of wayward son Jimmy Vesey to the Buffalo Sabres.
Pitlick is a Minnesota native and product of the famed Shattuck St. Mary’s system. Last season he played for the Muskegon Lumberjacks of the United States Hockey League (USHL) and scored 89 points (46 goals, 43 assists) in 56 games. Pitlick is the first forward selected by the Predators in the 2016 NHL Draft and will be joining the University of Minnesota in the Fall.
