Graham McPhee became the second incoming Boston College hockey freshman and third Eagle to be picked in the 2016 NHL Draft on Saturday, being taken #149 overall by the Edmonton Oilers.

McPhee is the only Eagle in the Oilers organization.

McPhee, a talented winger out of Bethesda, Maryland, is expected to be one of Boston College's biggest impact freshmen this season. McPhee recently wrapped up his second season with the US national team development program, putting up 5 points in 7 games as part of the US's U18 World Championship team.

Prior to the USNTDP, McPhee played for the famed Shattuck St. Mary's program in Minnesota.

Graham McPhee's father, George, played for Jerry York at Bowling Green and won the 1982 Hobey Baker Award before going on to play for the New York Rangers and New Jersey Devils.

McPhee was selected in the 9th round of the 2014 OHL Draft by the Sarnia Sting, but is not generally considered to be a flight risk to Canada - by all accounts, he's firmly committed to the college route.

Congrats Graham!
