After a lengthy but productive two days of the 2021 NHL Draft, Ducks Assistant GM said he was pleased with the haul of picks the Ducks secured, notably the seven selections they made in the second through sixth rounds on Day 2.

"You always need a little luck, but I think the day went very well," said Madden, who has been with the Ducks for 13 seasons, previously as Director of Amateur Scouting. "You wanted to come out of this draft with a balanced crop of prospects both in terms of styles and positions, and we reached those objectives."
