THE SHINNY:
The tenth ranked North American skater according to C.S.S., Duncan Siemens finished second among his team's defensemen in scoring with 43 points (five goals) while posting an eye-popping plus-40 in 72 games while helping Saskatoon to a first place finish in the WHL's Eastern Conference.

Growing up, Siemens played football and participated in track and field while also playing minor hockey. His father played football in the Edmonton Eskimos system in the Canadien Football League.

NHL Central Scouting's Peter Sullivan: “He's a guy that is really tough to play against. Sometimes I think he over-does it, tries to do too much, but he's got all the potential. He can carry the puck, he's a tough kid -- he can fight. He's tough to play against. He can work both ends; he plays both the power play and penalty kill. He's just a solid, all-round defenseman.
