He was pretty highly ranked by all the scouting organizations so it's not like we were/are just pimping a Cali kid only because he's from here. He's also a very good hockey player as well.

A players draft position doesn't mean he doesn't have high end potential. I can give you plenty of examples if you'd like. And the Ducks didn't pass on him twice.
