Ducks Draft Gardiner in First Round
Ducks first round pick (17th overall) Jake Gardiner poses on stage with Ducks Executive Vice President and General Manager Brian Burke, Director of Amateur Scouting Alain Chainey, Senior Vice President of Hockey Operations Bob Murray and Head Coach Randy Carlyle.
The Ducks selected defenseman Jake Gardiner with the 17th overall selection in the 2008 NHL Entry Draft in Ottawa, Ontario. The Ducks traded the 12th overall selection (previously acquired from Edmonton on July 3, 2007) to Los Angeles for the 17th selection and the 28th selection in this year’s Entry Draft. Anaheim subsequently sent the 28th selection to Phoenix for the 35th and 39th picks in the 2008 NHL Entry Draft.

“Jake Gardiner can really skate and we are pleased that he will be attending a top collegiate program at Wisconsin,” said Executive Vice President/General Manager Brian Burke.

Jake Gardiner Feature
Gardiner, 17 (7/4/90), appeared in 25 games for Minnetonka High School, recording 16-27=43 points with 18 penalty minutes (PIM) last season. The 6-0, 180-pound Gardiner helped lead Minnetonka to a 24-4-0 record in 2007-08 while his 43 points placed him third overall among Minnesota high school defensemen in scoring. In two seasons with Minnetonka, he scored 26-49=75 points with 38 PIM in 48 games.

“Jake is one of the best skaters in the draft, if not the best,” said Anaheim Ducks Director of Amateur Scouting Alain Chainey.  “He is good on the power play and brings an offensive dynamic that you don’t often find in a defenseman.”

Named the 2008 high school boys’ hockey All-Metro Player of the Year by the Star-Tribune, Gardiner was a finalist for Minnesota’s 2008 Mr. Hockey Award, given annually to the top Minnesota high school hockey player. The Minneapolis, MN native also represented Team USA at the 2007 Under-18 Ivan Hlinka Memorial tournament in Slovakia and the Czech Republic. Gardiner will play for the University of Wisconsin in 2008-09.

Anaheim has eight picks remaining in the 2008 NHL Entry Draft: three second-round picks (35, 39, 43), three third-round picks (71, 83, 85), one fourth-round pick (113) and one fifth-round pick (143).
