Article: Ducks Find Success in Unconventional Draft Picks

Hey guys,

Recently got picked up to cover the Ducks over at The Hockey Writers. I'm a bit of a prospect/draft fanatic and I've always appreciated the Ducks willingness to get creative with their picks and take chances, which inspired my first article. Check it out.

A brief look at the Anaheim Ducks recent drafting history shows willingness on the teamís part to sway from these conventions. Whether itís snagging a highly-touted player whoís slipping, going off the board with their selection, or drafting players from non-traditional hockey backgrounds, the Ducks have proven that they are not shy about going with their gut, and it appears as though it may be paying off.
