Robert Morris women's hockey forward Brittany Howard was drafted No. 10 overall in the NWHL draft Thursday night.

The Buffalo Beauts took Howard as their third pick. Howard led the Colonials in scoring in three of her four seasons with the program. She had 132 points in 107 games, with 54 goals and 78 assists. She had 20 goals and 30 assists last season for Robert Morris, which won the College Hockey America championship and made its first appearance in the NCAA Tournament.

Howard became the first Robert Morris player to be drafted in the professional women's hockey league, which started in 2015.

Former Robert Morris standout and USA women's national team goalie Brianne McLaughlin also played for the Beauts, joining the team and league in its inaugural season. McLaughlin helped lead the Beauts to the NWHL championship last season.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
