MONTREAL, QC — Memphis-born hockey player Luke Devlin was selected in the sixth round of the 2022 NHL Draft Friday by the Pittsburgh Penguins. 

According to the Penguins, Devlin, 18, played for St. Andrew's College in Canada last season where he led the team in goals (19), assists (28) and points (47) in 44 games. The 6'3", 191 pound forward appeared in four games with the United States at the 2021 Hlinka Gretzky Cup.
