The Anaheim Ducks are scheduled to pick once in each round to kick-off Day 2 of the 2020 NHL Draft. The Ducks had two first-round picks which general manager Bob Murray used on Erie Otters defenseman Jamie Drysdale at sixth overall and added goal-scorer Jacob Perreault at No. 27.

As Anaheim continues its rebuild, it is important for the organization to find some value in the later rounds.

PICK 36: Sam Colangelo, RW

Team: Chicago Steel (USHL) | Nationality: USA | Age: 18 | Ht: 6-2 | Wt: 188 | Shoots: R | TSN Ranking: 38 | 2019-20 Stats: 44 GP, 28 G, 30 A

Elite Prospects says:

He’s a smart player and finds his teammates in areas with enough space for them to make plays. It’s Colangelo’s vision that serves him best of all his tools in the offensive zone. His defensive play is among the strongest on his team, and he effectively uses his 6-foot-2, 205-pound frame to rub guys off the puck.

PICK 67: Ian Moore, D

Team: U.S. Prep School (USHL) | Nationality: USA | Age: 18 | Ht: 6-3 | Wt: 165 | Shoots: R | TSN Ranking: N/A | 2019-20 Stats: Stats: 28 GP, 12 G, 34 A

Elite Prospects says:

Moore is a gifted skater for a 6-foot-3 defenceman, and a confident puck-carrier. His ability to create speed through the neutral zone is so impressive. He can play an aggressive gap due to mobility, and rush threats are mitigated by his pressure. Moore also has a hard and accurate slap shot; he drops to one knee and generates a ton of flex on his shot.

PICK 104: Thimo Nickl, D

Team: Drumondville Voltigeurs (QMJHL) | Nationality: AUT | Age: 18 | Ht: 6-2 | Wt: 176 | Shoots: R | TSN Ranking: 74 | 2019-20 Stats: 58 GP, 10 G, 29 A

Elite Prospects says:

Nickl is a more confident defender in this latter half of the season. He uses his tools better (reach, size) and switches to his assignments in a more fluid way. Nicki’s biggest potential is as a rush defender. He skates smoothly, closes his gap appropriately, and can match weaving forwards easily. His long stick also helps him direct traffic and break plays.


Ducks acquired pick via trade from the Philadelphia Flyers.
