Theodore, taken by the Ducks with the 26th pick of the draft, has one assist and four shots on goal in three preseason games.
The 6-foot-2, 178-pound defenseman had 19 goals and 31 assists in 71 games last season with his junior team, the Seattle Thunderbirds of the Western Hockey League. He also had five assists in seven games to help Canada win the gold medal at the 2013 IIHF World Under-18 Championship.
Obviously he's been my favorite goalie since I grew up. He's kind of close to my hometown so I've been watching him my whole life. It's a pretty special moment for me to score two goals on Lundqvist in such an important game as this.
