Ducks Sign 2 Forwards to Entry-Level Deals

The Anaheim Ducks have locked up two of their promising prospects, as the club has signed both Yegor Sidorov and Coulson Pitre to three-year, entry-level deals. 

Sidorov, 19, just had a remarkable campaign with the Saskatoon Blades of the Western Hockey League (WHL), as the 6-foot winger scored an impressive 50 goals to go along with 88 points. This is very encouraging production, and there's a real expectation that he will blossom into a very impactful player at the NHL level in the future. 

The Ducks selected Sidorov with the 85th overall pick of the 2023 NHL Entry Draft. It is a selection that is already looking like a great one for the Ducks. 

Pitre, 19, is also coming off of a solid season. In 55 games with the Flint Firebird of the Ontario Hockey League, the 6-foot-1 forward had 27 goals to go along with 55 points. Overall, it was another strong regular season for the youngster, and it naturally has grabbed the attention of the Ducks. 

The Ducks picked Pitre with the 65th overall pick of the 2023 NHL Entry Draft. When looking at how well he has played in junior, Ducks fans should be excited about his future.
