FHL to hold junior/college draft 6/20/13

From emailed press release:
The Federal Hockey League is proud to announce that on Thursday, June 20th at 7:30 PM the league will be holding its Inaugural College / Junior Hockey Draft. Each member club will be holding their own draft day event in their city with team's reporting picks via phone call to the league office.

Fans can also follow the team's draft picks on their official facebook page.

The draft is slated for 4 rounds.

Players eligible for the draft include all collegiate and junior players who have completed their eligibility.

Teams drafting a player will retain that player's signing rights regardless of whether that player signs with the member team.

It is believed that the Federal Hockey League is the first minor league professional hockey league to conduct a rookie draft for players.
