Player Review: Josh Manson

Josh Manson is the number one BEAST of the Anaheim Ducks and he really shows that each and every season.

He was a key leader on the blueline especially in October and November when the Ducks were faced with so many players on the IR, despite the lack of the main key defenseman Manson stepped up to the plate and showed his coaches and all the Ducks fans what he is made of and there is so much talent in him it just keeps coming out bigger and stronger with each game he is on the ice for.

In 2017, signed a four year contract with the Ducks before the picks for expansion team, the Vegas Golden Knights.

Manson set some career highs over the season with scoring 7 goals, having 30 assists, 37 total points, and a plus/minus of +34.

His big move on the ice he made was when he got a loose puck and got the breakaway as his penalty had expired. What an awesome play

 

Season outlook according to the Ducks:

OUTLOOK

There’s no doubt the expectations remain high for Manson. His body of work to date proves he’s an effective shutdown defenseman, with the ability to provide more offense from the blueline. A continued pairing with Lindholm seems certain, and the duo should continue to shoulder the load against the opposition’s top units each night.

 

So excited to what the BEASTLY blue-liner will bring out in his game during the 2018-19 season.
