Junior hockey league drafts girl

Breaking News: A New Pioneer for Women’s Hockey?
"...Has been drafted in the fourth round, 199th overall in the United States Hockey League entry draft."

The first girl to be drafted into a junior league. Huh. She's a goaltender, of course. Something to keep an eye on, tho. It doesn't say in the article, but Alex Rigsby (nice generic first name) is 17 years old, 5'7", 145 lbs. - according the USA Hockey.

Girls stop growing tall at around 18 years old, by the way, so she might be able to eke out half an inch or so by the time she's done.
