First-overall selection Meghan Agosta led the way as 29 alumni of the National Women’s Under-18 Championship were selected during Thursday’s 2011 CWHL Draft in Mississauga, Ont.

The defending Clarkson Cup champions, the Montreal Stars, made Agosta the second player from Canada’s gold medal-winning 2010 Olympic team to go No. 1 – defenceman Tessa Bonhomme was selected by Toronto with the first pick in the inaugural 2010 draft.

Agosta was one of three members of the 2010 team to be chosen – defenceman Meaghan Mikkelson was taken by the expansion Alberta franchise with the third overall pick and fellow blue liner Catherine Ward joined Agosta on the Montreal roster at No. 8.

Overall, 18 of the draftees took part in the November 2005 National Women’s Under-18 Championship in Salmon Arm, B.C., 15 played in the January 2005 tournament in Salmon Arm and four were on the ice at the 2001 event in Trois-Rivières, Que.
