Ducks Select Seven Players in 2018 NHL Draft

by Kyle Shohara @kyleshohara / AnaheimDucks.com

DALLAS - The Ducks concluded the 2018 NHL Draft at American Airlines Center in Dallas, Texas with seven selections in Rounds 1-7.

"Really happy with our selections yesterday and today," said Ducks Director of Professional/Amateur Scouting Martin Madden. "We're definitely much deeper down the middle now. We're really happy with Benoit-Olivier [Groulx] in the second round. We added two really skilled kids in the third [round]. We missed on a defenseman we were really looking forward to, but that's all right. We got two longer term development guys there, but really talented, skilled players. We're really happy."

Madden adds, "Two goalies, obviously. We wanted to add some depth in net. Still very happy with our selection last year, but we still needed some depth there. Both kids are legitimate prospects. Two really good athletes who have performed really well on the international stage."

Their selections began on Friday when they took center Isac Lundestrom with the 23rd overall pick in the first round. The 18-year-old native of Gallivare, Sweden recorded 15 points (6g/9a) in 42 games with Lulea HF in the Swedish Hockey League during the 2017-18 regular season.

Draft Day Memories: Josh Manson

by Kyle Shohara @kyleshohara / AnaheimDucks.com

With the 2018 NHL Draft taking place this Friday and Saturday in Dallas, we asked a handful of Ducks to recall their experiences of the draft and the days leading up to it. Their recollections are part of a feature series titled Draft Day Memories.

For any player drafted into the NHL, the chances are strong he remembers exactly where he was the moment it happened. For many, that momentous achievement takes place inside the arena in which the draft is taking place. But for others - those who don't attend - their stories are uniquely special.

Josh Manson has become a stalwart on defense for the Ducks since he made his NHL debut on Oct. 31, 2014. Alongside his usual partner Hampus Lindholm, the two have evolved into a dynamic shutdown pairing that logs heavy minutes against the opposition's best lines.
