Anaheim Ducks sign first-round pick D Shea Theodore to 3-year entry-level contract

ANAHEIM, Calif. - The Anaheim Ducks have signed first-round pick Shea Theodore to a three-year contract.

The Ducks announced their entry-level deal with the defenceman Tuesday.

Theodore was the 26th overall pick in the NHL draft last June.

He has one assist in his first three preseason games with Anaheim during training camp. He played more than 22 minutes Sunday against Colorado, leading all Ducks in ice time.

Theodore scored 50 points in 71 games with the WHL's Seattle Thunderbirds last season. He also played for Canada at the under-18 world championships.

Quote of the Day

We think that Randy is a very good coach. Our players think that Randy is a very good coach. We think that he's going to get the most out of this group. With the addition of the two assistants, a bit of a different dynamic, we're very comfortable that this is a quality coaching staff that's going to maximize the potential of this team.
