World Juniors, Pastujov, etc.

Some Anaheim Ducks‘prospects continue to shine in their respective leagues. Trevor Zegras and Jamie Drysdale They can still be considered potential customers, but they’re not the only ones catching the attention right now. With the 2021 IIHF World Youth Championship fast approaching, Duck fans will have the chance to witness a portion of future potential Ducks making their mark.

Quartet of Ducks has the potential to become WJC Squad

Mason McTavish and Olen Zellweger went to Team Canada’s World Juniors camp last week and officially cut for the final lineup this week. Both players are expected to play many big minutes throughout the tournament and both should be key players in power play.

McTavish, who was drafted for the third time this summer by the Ducks and made his NHL debut on Opening Night––he also scored that night, has been on fire since being returned to the Peterborough Petes of the Ontario Hockey League (OHL).

Zellweger has been the driving force in attack for Everett Silvertips in the Western Hockey League (WHL) and also benefits from being the newly appointed substitute captain this season. His combination of skating and batting skills give Canada a mobile, attacking minded player on their blue line to combine with 2021 first overall pick, Owen Power.

Across the Border, Sasha Pastujov and Ian Moore make cuts for Team USA. It’s no surprise that Pastujov is on the team, thanks to his scoring record for Guelph Storm in the OHL this season. Moore, who plays at Harvard University with fellow promising Ducks fellow Henry Thrun, is in his first college hockey season and currently has three assists in 11 games.

Pastujov reached 20 goals

In his last game before going to World Juniors camp, Pastujov scored the 20th goal of the season. After initially deciding to play college hockey at Notre Dame, he rescind his decision and signed a top-level deal with the Ducks, joining Storm. This decision worked well for Pastujov, who created a Midas-like effect with his slit poke every time he touched it.

It is highly likely that Pastujov will be one of Team America’s main offensive threats in World Juniors and could play a similar role in Arthur Kaliyev’s power play at last year’s World Juniors.

Hinds Nets-High in career support

2021 NHL Entry Draft Third Round Pick Tyson Hinds has settled into the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League (QMJHL) since a sudden early-season injury brought his season to a halt. Hinds racked up three career-high assists last week in Rimouski-Océanic’s devastating 7-1 win.

Former QMJHL player and current NHL agent Taylor MacDougall tweeted on Sunday that Hinds leads all QMJHL players born in 2003 in points per game since being acquired by Rimouski-Océanic last January.

Hinds, along with Pastujov, McTavish, and Zellweger, are part of the strong duck breeding class of 2021. Each of their 2021 picks has performed well this season and showcased the scouts of the likes of these. how the duck has excelled over the past decade and beyond.

Seagulls fight attack

The San Diego Gulls in the American Hockey League (AHL) are currently experiencing a cold snap. They beat Ontario Reign 3-1 last Saturday but have scored just one goal in two games this week against the Abbotsford Canucks and Bakersfield Condors.

The Gulls have received solid tutoring from Olle Eriksson Ek while Lukas Dostal joins the big club but that’s on the level of positive news. AHL signing Sean Josling scored his first AHL goal of his career last night, a great shot from the slot.

Quick hits

  • Sean Tschigerl scored an assist for the Calgary Hitmen in their 4-3 loss to Prince Albert Raiders last Saturday.
  • Gage Alexander overcame Winnipeg ICE to win 5-2 over Edmonton Oil Kings, stopping 28 of 30 shots. However, he suffered a 4-1 defeat this week to Prince Albert Raiders, where he stopped 18 of 21 shots.
  • Ethan Bowen returned from injury and failed to score in his first game back for the Chilliwack Chiefs but provided two assists in the next game against Langley Rivermen in a 4-1 win. I also score a goal last night met Coquitlam Express in a 4-3 victory.
