Titans S69 Draftees


Recommended Posts

Friday evening saw the VHL hold its season 69 entry draft. The Titans had four draft picks heading into the event.


With an aging core the Titans see themselves needing pieces for their future and potential rebuild. Helsinki owned pick eight of round one and found themselves eyeing two specific players. They were able to successfully acquire German defender Erik Summers who has a very high ceiling and should climb Helsinki's ranks as early as season 70. Summers will start the season with Houston of the VHLM and is very likely to compete for top defenseman in the league.


With pick #20, Helsinki was happy to see Daldo fall to them. Another promising prospect who will play a second season in the VHLM to round out his game. Daldo should produce strong offensive numbers in season 69 and keep the Titans interests high.


At pick 27 the Titans took on a project player in Gary Tarantino. The 6'1" right winger expects to see stronger numbers this season wherever he finds himself playing. We have a good feeling Tarantino will become a VHL player in a couple of seasons.


With their final pick (#32), the Titans took on another project player in centerman Jack Russell. Russell is another VHLM free agent who will look to improve upon his 25 points last season with Mexico.


Round 1 Pick #8: Erik Summers @Erik Summers (D - Houston Bulls)
Round 2 Pick #20: Daldo @Harpskii (RW - San Diego Marlins)
Round 3 Pick #27: Gary Tarantino @Garrett (RW - VHLM Free Agent)
Round 3 Pick #32: Jack Russell @quanack (C - VHLM Free Agent)


Welcome to the Helsinki Titans!
