Defenseman Brennan Turner and forward Pat Brosnihan were picked on Sunday in the fifth and seventh rounds respectively.

Brosnihan, taken in the 212th slot with Phoenix's seventh-round pick, is a Worcester, Mass., native. Turner, a defensive defenseman who tallied five goals and 17 points last winter, earned a number of team awards while amassing 207 penalty minutes in 41 games in the Saskatchewan Junior Hockey League for Notre Dame.
