The Anaheim Ducks have two first-round draft picks going into the 2020 NHL Entry Draft. Who should Bob Murray target with Boston’s pick?
For the second year in a row, the Anaheim Ducks are walking into the NHL Entry Draft (whenever that may be) with two draft picks in the first round. With their current position in the standings, it is likely that Anaheim will walk away with an even higher draft pick than their 9th overall selection last year. However, they also get to add the Boston Bruins first-round pick into the mix.
Acquired in the Ondrej Kase trade, this draft pick will more than likely be the final selection in the first round. However, the first round of the 2020 NHL Entry Draft is so incredibly deep, the Anaheim Ducks have the opportunity to draft two players who could have a rather large impact on the future of the franchise.
There has been a lot of focus on who the Anaheim Ducks should draft with their own first-round draft pick. Names like Alex Holtz and Lucas Raymond come to mind. However, there hasn’t been a lot of focus on who they should draft or what they should do with the pick they received from Boston.
Bob Murray always has the option to trade the pick away, but we will save that discussion for another day. Today, we’re going to focus on 4 players he could potentially target with the 31st overall selection of the 2020 NHL Entry Draft. Granted, knowing Murray, he could go in a completely different direction with this pick. Nevertheless, it’s always fun taking a wild guess as to what could happen come draft day.
