Top Prospect Signings (Aug 5)

The Anaheim Ducks are very high on their 1st round draft pick from June's entry draft, forward Isac Lundestrom, and they took the necessary step to see him in a Ducks jersey before too long, signing him to his 3-year entry-level deal.  Lundestrom is a centre by trade and it is believed that his strong skating and hockey instincts could project him into the roster before too long.

Anaheim has some bubble players on their projected roster at the moment, players that a kid with a great rookie camp and training camp could possibly unseat.  The 23rd overall selection in the draft already has some reasonable size to him, but he will likely have to get bigger to be an impact player down the middle, but the Ducks still have some time with him, either putting him under Ryan Getzlaf's wing or send him back to Sweden to develop a little further.
