Penguins Select Forward Bryan Rust In The Third Round of the 2010 NHL Entry Draft
The Pittsburgh Penguins selected forward Bryan Rust from the United States National Development Team of the United States Hockey League (USHL) with their third-round pick (80th overall) at the 2010 NHL Entry Draft Saturday afternoon in Los Angeles.

Rust, 18, appeared in 27 games with the U.S. Under-18 team this past season, recording 10 goals and 23 points. He was a member of the U.S. squad which won the gold medal at the 2010 World Under-18 Championships in Belarus. Rust was one of the offensive leaders for the Americans as he finished with four goals, six points and a plus-4 rating in seven games. His four goals ranked second on the team.

Rust (6-foot, 191 pounds), who will attend the University of Notre Dame in the fall, spent the 2008-09 campaign with the U.S. Under-17 team, where he scored nine goals and 20 points in 58 contests.

The Pontiac, Michigan native is the second member of his family to be drafted following his brother, Matt, who was the 101st-overall selection by the Florida Panthers in 2007.
