Why don't they draft players from CHL....
You are confusing the USHS with the USHL. Higgins, McDonagh, Fischer played in the USHS only not the USHL.

Here's the list of players that we drafted that spent time in the USHL,

Louis Leblanc- '09
Mike Cichy- '09
Patrick Johnson- '09
Ryan McDonagh- '08
Andrew Conboy- '07
Mike Komisarek- '01
Ron Hainsey- '00

here's the list of players that we drafted that spent time in the USHS,

Colin Sullivan- '11
Joe Stejskal- '07
David Fischer- '06
Philippe Paquet- '05
J.T. Wyman- '04
Chris Higgins- '02


Here's the list of players that we drafted that spent time in the USHL and USHS,

Josiah Didier - '11
Jarred Tinordi- '10 (also played in the NAHL- another junior league like the USHL)
Mac Bennett- '09
Danny Kristo- '08
Max Pacioretty- '07
Scott Kishel- '07




As for why teams are drafting out of the USHL more now, it's due to the NCAA rule change in '05 where they started to allow kids to be drafted into the NHL before going to the NCAA without losing their eligibilty. So before then, you couldn't draft a kid out of the USHL, USHS, NAHL, BCHL, etc... if they planned on going the NCAA route.
