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

I'm just excited about the opportunity. I've been on the ice earlier than usual and in the weight room, pushing around a little more weights than usual. Every day I go into a workout with a smile on my face and ready to go. When you do have a little more responsibility, you want to take your lunch pail and get ready to work.
