SenShot NHL Mock Draft Pick #26 – Anaheim Ducks


The Ducks, who have the #26 pick in the draft are coming off a disappointing first round playoff loss to the Red Wings, and have put a lot of money into two of their star players.  As a result, they are going to need quality young players to develop quickly to support them at an affordable level.
