Modig looks like he could be a sleeper of a pick.

The Ducks selected players who they scouted heavily playing on teams with current Ducks prospects. Good read Kevin.

I noticed that too. Although, that does mean the scouts do know more about the players they are drafting because they are viewing their own prospects at the same time. It seems as though the Ducks chose safely with some picks and head scratchers with others, the scouts seem to think they've found gems. Logan and Eric found extra gears in the playoffs. Max and Justin are two-way players. Two goalies that look very promising. And the last draft pick, Brett, sounds like an Andy Mac prospect. The only prospect without a buzz, so to speak, would be Mitera's defensive teammate Steven.

A very good read, Kevin. You have to trust the brain trust as they're padding solid players in the org and hopefully one or two can be gems that haven't tapped their full potential yet. I'm not used to the Ducks not rushing rookies to the NHL club level and have the luxury to let the players develop at their own time. I've been eagerly awaiting the Ducks' draft review for some time and so a big thank you!

I'm going to watch Tangradi closely this year, You have to like the fact that as an 18 year old when he finally got an opportunity for a bigger role he produced, and in the playoffs no less.

There's two major storylines with this draft for Anaheim: one is teammates with so many players drafted having experience with other Ducks prospects and the other is bloodlines with a number of the players drafted coming from hockey families (MacMillan and Vaive are the obvious ones, but Modig's family was a bit of a surprise when I was doing my research).

It's also worth noting that the last two guys the Ducks drafted from the US National Development Team Program, Matt Auffrey and Jason Bailey, both ended up leaving their NCAA programs and migrating north to the OHL. For what it is worth, Justin Vaive's OHL rights are owned by the Sudbury Wolves, I believe.

This will be an intriguing draft class to watch develop. The Ducks rolled the dice a bit with players like Tangradi, Stefaniszin, Morrison and especially Macenauer, and I'm interested to see how those picks especially pay off.

Kampfer is going to be the best pick of our draft this year. Check the avatar. Oh yeah baby
