On Tuesday, the United States Hockey League — the top junior circuit in America — concluded its 2014 Draft, a selection process that was filled with familiar hockey names.

Eetu Selanne, son of the NHL’s oldest player, Teemu, was selected by the expansion Madison Capitols while Chris Shero — who’s father, Ray, currently serves as the GM in Pittsburgh — was selected by the Des Moines Buccaneers.

As for other notable NHL surnames selected?

— Keiffer Bellows, son of Brian, was taken 13th overall by the Sioux Falls Stampede.

— Luke McInnis (son of Marty), and Ty Amonte (son of Tony) were taken by the Youngstown Phantoms.

— Callan Foote, son of Adam, was taken by the Omaha Lancers.

— Sean MacTavish, son of Craig, was taken by the Waterloo Black Hawks.

— Carter Woolley, son of Jason, was taken by the Muskegon Lumberjacks.

Earlier this year, Bellows and Graham McPhee — son of ex-Caps GM George — were selected to participate in the 2014 U.S. National Team Development Program camp. Other USNTDP invitees included Logan Brown, who’s father (Jeff) spent 12 years as an NHL defenseman.
