A New Face In The State Of Hockey: Chase Lang

Chase Lang
183 lbs
Shoots: Right
Born: September 13, 1996
Birthplace: Nanaimo, Britsh Columbia, Canada
Acquired: Drafted in the 6th round (167th overall) in the 2014 NHL Draft

With their second sixth round pick, the Wild drafted Chase Lang, a right winger from the Calgary Hitmen of the WHL.

This past season in Calgary, Lang scored 25 points (third worst on Calgary) in 68 games, and added 52 penalty minutes. Lang is likely to return to the Hitmen for the 2014-15 season.

While Lang's stats don't fly off the page, he fits the bill of what Minnesota is looking for when drafting someone. Strong two way player, good hands, good size, and good skater. He should be getting more ice time with Calgary next year, so his stats should see a nice boost.
