The Anaheim Ducks have selected another defenseman.
The Ducks select defenseman Henry Thrun from the U.S. National Team Development Program’s Under-18 Team (NTDP). Thrun, 18 (3/12/01) ranked third among blueliners on the NTDP U-18 team with 37 points (8g/29a) in 62 games last season.
“It was super exciting,” Thrun said, on hearing his named called by Anaheim. “Celebrate it with my family and friends. To go through that was pretty special for me.”
Thrun joins former NTDP U-18 teammate (and close friend) Trevor Zegras on the Ducks. “Trev and I are good buddies,” Thrun said. “We’ve known each other since we were little kids. We’ve always been competitors. It’s going to be cool to be teammates down the road.”
A two-time medalist on the international stage, Thrun won gold with Team USA at the 2017 Under-17 Hockey Challenge and earned bronze at the 2019 Under-18 World Championship.
The six-foot-2, 188-pound defenseman says he models his game after Chicago Blackhawks d-man Duncan Keith.
