SIOUX FALLS, SD -- The Sioux Falls Stampede selected two players in the USHL’s dispersal draft of available players that were on the Indiana Ice season-ending roster and affiliate list for the 2013-14 season.

All players that have junior hockey eligibility for the 2014-15 season were selected by USHL Member Clubs.

The Indiana Ice were granted dormancy for the 2014-15 season and temporary withdrawal from on-ice competition as the organization focuses on development of a new facility and permanent home for the USHL Member Club in the Indianapolis area.

In the first round, the Herd selected forward Shane Sellar.  A native of Carlisle, PA, Sellar spent the past two seasons skating for Canterbury Prep School. In 2012-13, he posted 28 points (13, 15a) in 27 games. The 6-foot-1, 185-pound left-winger has already committed to play collegiate hockey at Dartmouth College.

In the second round, Sioux Falls chose forward Alex Talcott. The Kentwood, MI native recorded 20 points (9g, 11a) in 47 games with the Ice this past season and added six points in 11 playoff games. The 5-foot-11, 192-pound winger is expected to skate at the University of Michigan in the fall, but the Stampede will hold his junior hockey rights should he decide to return to the USHL.

The Stampede are now preparing for tryout camp, June 6-9 at Ridder Arena at the University of Minnesota.
