The Athletic’s Eric Stephens is reporting that the Ducks have signed Trevor Zegras to a three year Entry Level Contract. The Anaheim Ducks have yet to officially confirm the signing.
Team yet to confirm but heard from other sources that Trevor Zegras has signed an entry-level deal with #NHLDucks. Was expected. Hearing it's three years. This piece is an inkling into what this hot prospect is all about. Free 90-day trial going on.https://t.co/OBiAdAXbXn— Eric Stephens (@icemancometh) March 27, 2020
The Ducks took Zegras with the ninth overall pick in the 2019 Entry Draft. Putting up 87 points in 60 games with the United States National Team Development Program, Zegras rose in the draft rankings with his elite playmaking skills.
The Bedford, New York native then played his freshman year with the Boston University Terriers centering their top line while racking up 36 points in 33 games.
Zegras gained national recognition for his incredible performance at the 2020 World Junior Championship where he registered nine points, all assists, as he powered the majority of what turned out to be a weak offense from Team USA.
By signing an ELC, Zegras will leave college and play for either the San Diego Gulls or the Anaheim Ducks depending on his performance at training camp.
