During round 3 on Thursday the Buffalo Beauts selected forward Jessie Eldridge 13th overall. Eldridge is a senior captain at Colgate and has scored 57 goals and 75 assists good for 132 points in her 133 game career thus far.

Finally, in the fourth round Buffalo also selected Olivia Zafuto 18th overall. Zafuto is a defender from Niagara Falls, NY who has recorded 82 points through her 131 game career with Colgate.
