Congratulations to incoming freshman defenseman Brandon Montour, who became the highest draft pick in UMass history when the Anaheim Ducks selected him 55th overall in the second round.

When interviewed following his selection, Montour talked about why he chose to come to UMass:

"I think the biggest thing was the coaches. I love the coaches there. It's a great organization both school-wise and hockey-wise and it's not too far down the road from my house, meaning my family can come down whenever. It's just unbelievable there, in Hockey East, one of the best leagues in college hockey."
