On Sunday, June 4th, the Waywayseecappo Wolverines will be drafting the next batch of prospects during the 2023 MJHL Draft.
The MJHL Draft highlights players who are going into their 16-year-old season. Players who will be eligible for the MJHL Draft are Manitoba players who are registered to play hockey in Manitoba according to Hockey Manitoba regulations and are in their 16th year (2007 born).
Prior to the MJHL Draft, teams have submitted up to two (2) Auto-Protect selections from their designated home zone. During the Auto-Protect process, teams have the option to decline an Auto-Protect selection and defer that pick to Round 7 or 8 of the draft. The Wolverines have decided against this for this draft, so they will be picking in Round 7 and 8.
The Wolverines will be making their first pick in the first round with the sixth selection. They will have no second round selection, but they will have two third round picks, back to back, in the 33rd and 34th slot. They will then select regularly in the sixth spot for the remaining six rounds.
In the past season, the Wolverines had four players that were once drafted by the team. Andrew Boucher was drafted in the 2017 draft in the 4th round. Colby Wotton was drafted 7th overall in the 2018 Draft. Ben Roulette and Kurt Rookes were selected three picks apart, with a 4th overall and 7th overall selection in the 2020 Draft.
