Minot, ND – The Minotauros took a big step in building next season’s team today with the addition of 10 players during the NAHL draft.  The biggest news was a trade for Matt Seidel from the Kenai River Brown Bears.  The Bear’s leading scorer cost the Tauros four draft picks (30th, 35th, 57th, and 106th overall); however since teams are required to draft until they have 30 players on their protected list the Tauros were able to add the 145th, 159th, and 172nd overall picks to the draft.   In the end the Tauros added seven forwards, two defensemen, and a goalie. Below is a summary of the players added today.
