VANCOUVER -- With the 101st overall pick in the 2019 NHL Draft, the Ducks select defenseman Henry Thrun from the U.S. National Team Development Program's Under-18 Team (NTDP). Thrun, 18 (3/12/01) ranked third among blueliners on the NTDP U-18 team with 37 points (8g/29a) in 62 games last season.
"It was super exciting," Thrun said, on hearing his named called by Anaheim. "Celebrate it with my family and friends. To go through that was pretty special for me."
Thrun joins former NTDP U-18 teammate (and close friend) Trevor Zegras on the Ducks. "Trev and I are good buddies," Thrun said. "We've known each other since we were little kids. We've always been competitors. It's going to be cool to be teammates down the road."
