The team had three picks in the first round last Thursday in Baltimore, after making a trade that eventually sent Zac Pfeffer to Colorado for the second pick. The team took defenders Josh Yaro and Keegan Rosenberry at the 2nd and 3rd spot respectively. They then went with forward Fabian Herbers at the six.
Curtin talks about what these players will add to the team as they push for spots on the roster.
