Anaheim remains in rebuild mode but has young talent on the ice to watch.
Entencenter Trevor Zegras, the ninth pick in the 2019 draft, is one of these players. The former Boston University star saw his first NHL action last season with 13 points in 24 games.
Left winger Max Comtois, the 19th pick in the 2017 draft, led the Ducks with 16 goals and had 17 assists. He has progressively improved his production over the past three seasons while extending the season.
Defender Jamie Drysdale, the sixth pick in the 2020 draft, is only 19 years old and has 24 NHL experience. Born in Toronto, he collected eight points and had a score of -12 plus-minus last season.
Right winger Troy Terry, a fifth round pick from 2015, has seen an extended playing time over the past four seasons. Last season he achieved a career high with 20 points.
Center Sam Steel, the 30th pick in 2016, had 12 points in 42 games last season and 22 points in 65 competitions last year. Left winger Max Jones, the 24th pick in 2016, has cracked 10 points in each of the last two seasons. Isac Lunderstrom, the 23rd pick in 2018, scored nine points in 41 games last season after playing just 15 games a year in the previous two seasons.
Anaheim has little offensive firepower overall and comes from a season in which the team only scored 2.21 goals per game. The Ducks are statistically giving back their top nine attacking players, but only two of them have scored more than 10 goals.
Right winger Rickard Rakell led with 19 assists and scored nine goals. Center Adam Henrique scored 12 goals and nine assists.
Without the offensive production, the Ducks missed the playoffs for a third straight season and saw the number of wins dip. Anaheim hasn’t improved its overall wins in a season since winning 54 games in the 2013-2014 season after winning just 30 the previous year.
Right wing Alexander Volkov, who joined from Tampa Bay Lightning late last season, could make a difference offensively in an entire season with 82 games, according to NHL.com’s Mike Morreale. Volkov scored eight points in 18 games for the Ducks and had five points in 19 games for the much deeper Lightning.
The Ducks have John Gibson back in goal after the season, where he had a .903 percentage save and 2.98 allowed goals. He went 9-19-0 in 35 games played.
Anaheim also has replacement goalie Anthony Stolarz again. In eight games last season, he scored a save percentage of 0.926, allowed 2.20 goals per game, and had a 4-3-0 record.
