Oakville resident Tyler Albrecht was selected fifth overall in Sunday’s Major Series Lacrosse graduating junior draft by the Peterborough Lakers.

The Lakers traded up from the ninth pick to select the 21-year-old transition player, who scored 25 goals and added 33 assists in 18 games last year in junior A with the Burlington Chiefs.

Albrecht, who also suited up in 27 games for the Oakville Buzz junior B squad from 2009-11, plays collegiate lacrosse at Cornell.

“Extremely honoured to be selected by @PtboLakersLax in this year’s draft,” Albrecht posted on Twitter. “Can’t wait to get after it this summer #FiredUp.”

Colton Watkinson, who captained the Buzz this past season, was taken by the Brooklin Redmen as the 30th and final pick of the draft. Watkinson collected seven goals and 20 assists in nine games with the Buzz last year, his fourth season with the team. The Burlington native also plays field lacrosse for the Limestone College Saints, who won the NCAA Division 2 championship last year.

The Oakville Rock selected five players in the draft. The Rock used the seventh overall pick to draft Wes Berg (Coquitlam, B.C.), then claimed Brier Jonathan (Six Nations) with the eighth overall selection.

Oakville’s other draft picks were Stu Martin of Six Nations (14th overall), Zach Bell of Brampton (16th) and Eli McLaughlin of Coquitlam (23rd).
