Two Maine teenagers – Brian Hart of Cumberland and Jon Gillies of South Portland – were selected today on the second day of the NHL draft.

Hart, a forward, was taken in the second round by the Tampa Bay Lightning with the 53rd overall pick. The former Greely High standout played at Phillips Exeter Academy for two seasons and will attend Harvard University in the fall.

Gillies, a goalie, was drafted by the Calgary Flames in the third round. He was the 75th pick overall. Gillies spent the past two years with the Indiana Ice of the United States Hockey League, and is headed to Providence College, where he’ll be a teammate of Hart’s brother, Kevin.
