A future UNO player was selected in the NHL draft Saturday.

Left wing Tyler Weiss, who is set to join the Mavericks in the upcoming season, was selected in the fourth round with the 109th overall pick by the Colorado Avalanche.

The 5-foot-10, 151-pound U.S. National Team Development Program product had 12 goals and 31 points in 58 games last season. A native of Raleigh, North Carolina, Weiss helped the U.S. to a silver medal at the most recent under-18 world championships.

He joins goalie Matej Tomek as incoming Mavericks selected in the NHL draft. Tomek, who began his college career at North Dakota, was a third-round pick of Philadelphia in 2015.
