Penn State Hockey’s Chase McLane Drafted No. 209 Overall By Nashville Predators

The Nashville Predators drafted Penn State hockey freshman forward Chase McLane with the 209th overall pick of the 2020 NHL Entry Draft Wednesday night.

The freshman from Trenton, Michigan played three seasons for the USHL’s Tri-City Storm, a team located in Kearney, Nebraska, prior to his time at Penn State.

McLane played a total of 100 games with the team, scoring 13 goals with 35 assists. Despite being injured for most of the 2019-20 season, McLane notched five goals with 11 assists in 18 games played.

The forward was one of nine players to join Guy Gadowsky’s 2020 recruiting class. At 6’2″ and 183 pounds, the talented McLane can certainly be considered a power forward for the Nittany Lions in the coming years.

“I chose Penn State because it felt like the right fit,” McLane said in a release earlier this year. “The campus is beautiful, and it has everything I wanted in a school.”

The 20-year-old is now the 13th player drafted from Penn State in its program’s history and the first Nittany Lion taken in this year’s draft.
