There were 18 Minnesotans selected in Phase I of the USHL draft, as well as three more who have spent time playing on teams in Minnesota. An additional 30 Minnesotans and four players from Minnesota-based teams were chosen in Phase II.

All 48 Minnesotans chosen have participated in the CCM High Performance programs, and over half (25) of them have played in the CCM HP Fall Tier I Leagues.

A complete list of the players, hometown and previous teams are below.

The United States Hockey League (USHL) is the only USA Hockey sanctioned Tier I junior hockey league in the country and is a key component of the player development process in the U.S. Phase I of the USHL draft was limited to players born in 2004. All players whose rights aren’t held by a USHL team were eligible for Phase II of the draft.
