Thanks to everyone for all the messages and support! Proud and excited to be a part of the @AnaheimDucks organization!
I don't remember if he was drafted last year or the year before.

Looks like it was 4th rd 2012.

Yeah, he should make a competition to Clark.

But now with Gagne signing and i believe they called up someone from Fort Wayne, idk who is going to play down there
Will they dress 10 defenseman or something?

Some of the recent signings might just practice with Norfolk - last season we had a couple of late year signings that didn't suit up IIRC. Juniors and the AHL are worlds apart and while some guys can step in and help right away others will be out of their depth at first.

They could use another physical d-man, so I expect he'll get some ice time.

Edit: I just remembered that his team hasn't been eliminated.

Hope he turns out to be a decent player! Sounds like he likes to mash and fight. Maybe he can come out of nowhere like Brenden Dillon in Dallas. Dillon can hit. Apparently OB can too!

That's a fantastic combination of skills. Hopefully he can become that at the NHL level.
