HERMANTOWN, Minn. -- Current UMD freshman and former Hermantown star Blake Biondi was drafted 109th overall in the 4th round of the NHL Draft by the Montreal Canadiens.

Biondi won the 2019-20 Minnesota Mr. Hockey Award. He is the second current Bulldog freshman drafted, joining Wyatt Kaiser who was selected by the Chicago Blackhawks.

Biondi lead the Hawks to the 2019-20 MSHSL Class A State Championship game. He tallied 95 points on 47 goals in his senior season at Hermantown.

Biondi gathered outside his family's home in Hermantown for a small draft watching party.

The 18-year-old NHL center prospect plans to play this season at UMD, potentially opening their season later in November.
