MINNEAPOLIS -- Three Spokane Chiefs were selected on the second day of the NHL Draft on Saturday in Minneapolis, Minnesota.

Defenseman Brenden Kichton was selected by the New York Islanders in the fifth round (127th overall), while center Dominik Uher went just 17 picks later in the same round to the Pittsburgh Penguins.

Forward Darren Kramer wasn't too far behind. He was grabbed by the Ottawa Senators in the sixth round (156th overall), just 12 picks after Uher was selected.

Kichton was draft-eligible last season, but he went unpicked. He came out to prove the doubters wrong this season, registering 23 goals and 58 assists.

Uher, originally from the Czech Republic, was fourth on the Chiefs in scoring this season. He scored 21 goals and dished out 39 assists in 65 games this year.

Kramer led the Western Hockey League with 306 PIM this season. He also scored 14 points in the regular season, but added eight more points in 17 playoff games.
