Matt Pohlkamp of Brainerd was selected by the Fargo Force in the third round of the USHL Entry Draft Wednesday.

Pohlkamp was the 42nd player taken. A total of 23 rounds saw players from USA, Canada and Europe selected.

“Matt’s commitment and attitude during the High School Elite League, along with his play during the Great 8 and NIT this spring, moved him to the top of many teams list,” Warriors coach Jim Archibald said.

“Matt is hard-working, competitive, team-first player,” Archibald added. “He has a respect and love for the game that will certainly take him a long way.”
