Prospect Update: Jacob Larsson

By Thomas Harrington Anaheim’s first round pick from 2015, Jacob Larsson has spent most of the last two seasons in the SHL, developing into a solid, all around defenseman. He doesn’t have the offensive flash of some of Anaheim’s other young defenders but is currently Anaheim’s best defensive prospect. Larsson had a fantastic training camp…

Prospect Update: Troy Terry

By Thomas Harrington In terms of team success, no player in the entire Anaheim organization had a better 2016-2017 season than Troy Terry. He was an integral part of two championship teams last season and probably could have turned pro as early as this season if he wanted to. Terry was a sophomore at the…

Prospect Update: Josh Mahura

By Thomas Harrington A third-round pick from 2016, Josh Mahura completed his third season in juniors and it was an incredibly successful one.

By Thomas Harrington The Anaheim Ducks selected Steven Ruggiero in the sixth round of the 2015 NHL Entry Draft.

After only…

Prospect Update: Matt Berkovitz

By Thomas Harrington A fifth round pick from 2014, Matt Berkovitz has taken an interesting career path. A year ago, he was expected to go to the University of Wisconsin.

Prospect Update: Tyler Soy

By Thomas Harrington The Anaheim Ducks selected Tyler Soy 205th overall in the 2016 NHL Entry Draft. As a seventh round pick, the odds are against him making it to the NHL.
