by Kyle Shohara @kyleshohara / AnaheimDucks.com

With the Ducks holding two picks in the first round (No. 9 and 29) and three in the top 39, the 2019 NHL Draft (June 21-22 in Vancouver) is shaping up to be a significant one for Anaheim. The Ducks are the NHL's most successful team drafting players into the NHL since 2010, having done so without a top-five overall selection. In fact, Anaheim has not selected in the top five since 2005, qualifying for the playoffs in 11 of 14 seasons since then.

Quotes from Eakins, Murray at Head Coach Press Conference

by Anaheim Ducks / AnaheimDucks.com

Dallas Eakins today was announced as head coach of the Anaheim Ducks at a press conference at Great Park Ice & FivePoint Arena. With the announcement, Eakins became the 10th head coach in franchise history.

Eakins, 52 (1/20/67), most recently served as head coach for the San Diego Gulls of the American Hockey League (AHL) from 2015-19. In his four seasons behind the bench, Eakins led San Diego to a 154-95-23 record and three trips to the Calder Cup Playoffs. Under Eakins, the Gulls led the AHL Pacific Division in wins, points (331) and points percentage (.608) since the division's inception in 2015-16.

Joining him on stage today was Ducks Executive Vice President and General Manager Bob Murray, who opened the press conference with comments on Eakins.

Murray: First thing, I would like to thank [owners] Henry and Susan [Samueli] and [Chief Executive Officer] Mike Schulman for their patience here since Christmas. It's been a long period for this organization and I said in the beginning I was going to take my time and make sure San Diego was finished playing before I looked for a head coach. I held true to my word, and fortunately I didn't think they would go as far as they did. So, good for Dallas on that, but it's made things a little tight for Henry and Susan, so thank you for your patience in this. Ingrid, girls, welcome. I think it's important you understand a little history here that I have with Dallas. He probably doesn't know all of it, but when I retired, my first job in Chicago and living in Chicago was as a pro scout.
