The Anaheim Ducks signed defenseman Jamie Drysdale, their top pick in the 2020 NHL Draft, to a three-year, entry-level contract, the team announced Saturday.
The Ducks selected Drysdale, 18, with the No. 6 overall pick in the draft.
The club didn't announce financial terms, but CapFriendly pegged the deal at $925,000 at the NHL level and $80,000 in the AHL each season, with the opportunity to earn up to $850,000 annually in performance bonuses.
A native of Toronto, Drysdale was a first-team Ontario Hockey League All-Star in 2019-20 after scoring 47 points (nine goals, 38 assists). In 112 career game with the Erie Otters, he tallied 16 goals and 71 assists.
Earlier this week, the Ducks also signed right wing Jacob Perreault to a three-year, entry-level deal. He was the No. 27 overall selection in the draft.
