The Force selected a North Dakota kid with its first selection, Jordan Nelson from Williston with the 9th overall pick. He was named Mr. Hockey in 2010, leading the Coyotes to the state semis and a win over Fargo South along the way. He played last year in Alexandria.

The Force also stayed local later in the draft, choosing Dominic Toninato from Duluth East, and Anders Franke from Elk River. One other local selection, Moorhead's Eric Brenk, was drafted by Sioux Falls.
