  The Neepawa Natives selected forward Bradley Marshall first overall in Sunday's Manitoba Junior Hockey League Bantam Draft.   Marshall scored 29 goals and 50 points in 32 games with the Parkland Rangers in the Winnipeg AAA Hockey League Bantam One West this past season.   The Natives also made a trade Sunday, acquired 20-year old goaltender Alex Henry from the OCN Blizzard along with a fifth round pick in the draft in exchange for the rights to forward Brayden Cullum and a third round selection.   The Virden Oil Capitals had the sixth overall selection and went with Stonewall's Leif Mattson, who was also a pick of the Brandon Wheat Kings in the WHL Bantam Draft this year.   Mattson had 35 goals and 68 points in 35 games with the Interlake Lighting in the Winnipeg AAA Hockey League Bantam One East this past season.   The Waywayseecappo Wolverines had traded their first round pick to the Steinbach Pistons, and didn't select a player until the second pick of the second round.   With that selection, they chose Deloraine's Kolby Chen, who had 17 goals and 29 points in 32 games with the AAA Bantam Southwest Cougars this past season.   For all the selections in the MJHL Bantam Draft, visit www.mjhlhockey.ca/fan-zone/draft-2013.html
