Former Rebel Taken in USHL Draft

Castlegar native Ryan Renz was selected 214th overall today by the Chicago Steel in the USHL Draft. The 16 year-old defenseman spent the first half of this past season with the Rebels (8-18-26 and 133 PIM in 29 games), but then joined the BCHL's Alberni Valley Bulldogs just after Christmas, where he posted 4 points in 12 games, but then an additional 8 during the 'Dogs playoff run.

Renz now has another option in addition to staying with the Bulldogs or testing the WHL waters, as I'm told being picked by a USHL team doesn't mean a player is committed to going south. Congrats to Ryan and his family and good luck to him wherever he laces his skates this coming fall.
