Boston University freshman center Trevor Zegras has signed a three-year entry level contract with the Anaheim Ducks, the organization announced on Friday.
Zegras, from Bedford, N.Y., was selected by the Ducks with the ninth overall pick in the 2019 NHL Draft. A Mid Fairfield Jr. Rangers and Avon Old Farms product, Zegras was coming off a remarkable season with USA Hockey’s NTDP U-18 team.
As a freshman this past season at BU, Zegras recorded 11 goals and 25 assists in 33 games. When he was on the ice and had the puck on his stick, Zegras was as dangerous as any player in college hockey. His vision and puck skills allowed him to make numerous highlight reel passes that set up teammates for goals. Zegras also had a solid 2020 World Junior Championship, dishing out nine helpers in five games for the Americans.
