A year ago three Canucks went in the first 10 rounds.

Following Gareth Morgan (North York, Ont.) who went 74th over-all to the Seattle Mariners for a $2 million US bonus followed by Brock Dykxhoorn(Goderich, Ont.), an Ontario Nationals grad from Central Arizona went in the sixth round to the Houston Astros and RHP Jordan Romano (Markham, Ont.), an Ontario Blue Jays grad attending Oral Roberts went in the 10th round to the Toronto Blue Jays.

This June?
