Talent will be on display at Progressive Field

When I asked Ohio State hockey coach Mark Osiecki what hockey fans should expect on Sunday when his team plays Michigan at Progressive Field, he said this:

"You're going to see a lot of guys that will play in the NHL one day," the coach said.

A look at each team's roster, especially Michigan's, and it's easy to see why that's a good possibility.

The Wolverines have 11 NHL draft picks on their roster of 25. The Buckeyes have four players that were drafted.

The Michigan players drafted with their NHL team: Kevin Lynch (Columbus Blue Jackets), Luke Moffatt (Colorado Avalanche), Alex Guptill (Dallas Stars), Zach Hyman (Florida Panthers), Mac Bennett (Montreal Canadiens), Jon Merrill (New Jersey Devils), David Wohlberg (New Jersey Devils), Chris Brown (Phoenix Coyotes), Lee Moffie (San Jose Sharks), Greg Pateryn (Toronto Maple Leafs), Brennan Serville (Winnepeg Jets).

The Ohio State players drafted: Ben Gallagher (Florida Panthers), Ryan Dzingel (Ottawa Senators), Max McCormick (Ottawa Senators), Chris Crane (San Jose Sharks).
