A total of 28 NCAA women’s hockey stars were chosen Tuesday and Wednesday in the annual NWHL Draft.

Two more players skated for a Canadian school in 2019-20.

Boston University forward Sammy Davis went first overall to the Boston Pride.

“I’m really excited to be selected first overall by the Pride and to be able to play in my favorite city next season,” said Davis in a statement.

“This is a great reflection of how hard Sammy has worked and the talent that she brings to the game,” added BU coach Brian Durocher. “The Pride are getting a person of character and ability who will embrace the challenge of pro hockey.”

All players picked in the draft saw their selections announced online by executives, athletes, broadcasters and other leaders across a range of sports and professional leagues.
