Anaheim Ducks sign Swedish 1st-round pick Hampus Lindholm to 3-year deal

ANAHEIM, Calif. - The Anaheim Ducks have signed first-round pick Hampus Lindholm to a three-year entry-level contract.

The Ducks announced the deal Friday with the Swedish defenceman.

The 18-year-old Lindholm was the sixth overall pick in last month's draft. He finished last season with Rogle BK, helping the club earn promotion to the Swedish Elite League.

Lindholm has another season left on his contract with Rogle BK, but is expected to attend training camp in Anaheim in September.

Quote of the Day

It's pretty crazy, but believe me when I say we didn't draft these players with the mindset we had to because they had good hockey-playing dads. It just turned out that way. But we're certainly glad they're a part of our organization.
