In Round 4, Sabres move up to select Minnesota high schooler Aaron Huglen

VANCOUVER -- The Sabres moved up in Round 4 of the NHL Draft, sending picks Nos. 122 and 175 to the Vancouver Canucks to get pick No. 102. With that selection, the ninth pick of the round, the Sabres selected forward Aaron Huglen of Roseau (Minn.) High School.

The 5-foot-11, 165-pound Huglen had 17 goals and 52 points in 35 games last season for Roseau and added four goals and 14 points for the Fargo (N.D.) Force of the United States Hockey League. Roseau is the Minnesota town that produced the Broten brothers, Neil and Aaron. Neil Broten played for the 1980 Miracle on Ice team at the Lake Placid Olympics and had a long NHL career with the Minnesota North Stars.

Huglen is committed to the University of Minnesota for the 2020-21 season. Buffalo first-rounder Ryan Johnson, taken with the 31st pick Friday night, will be playing there next season.

Huglen is best known for scoring a lacrosse-like scoop goal last summer for Team USA in the Hlinka-Gretzky Cup Tournament.
