NHL Scouts Taking Note of Former Jr. Ducks York, Johnson

The highest level of hockey is well aware of what's going on with the Anaheim Jr. Ducks.

Less than four months after a former Jr. Ducks player was selected in the NHL Entry Draft, the program has two more strong candidates for the same honor in 2019, according NHL Central Scouting's recently released players to watch list.

Former Jr. Ducks defensemen Cam York and Ryan Johnson appeared on the watch list. York received an A rating, meaning he is a candidate to be selected in the first round, while Johnson garnered a B rating, indicating he is a candidate to be picked in the second or third round.

Slava Demin, a freshman defenseman at the University of Denver, in June became the club's first NHL pick since it started its Tier 1 program when he went in the fourth round (99th overall) to the Vegas Golden Knights.
