Ducks Draft Palmieri with 26th Pick in the First Round
The Ducks selected center/right wing Kyle Palmieri of Montvale, New Jersey with their second first pick (26th overall) in the first round of the NHL Entry Draft. The 18-year-old from the USA Hockey National Team Developmental Program was ranked 20th among North American skaters according to Central Scouting Service.

Palmieri Selection
Palmieri Interview

In 33 games with the U.S. Under-18 National Training Development Program in 2008-09, Palmieri had 15 goals, including four game-winners, and 30 points (15-15-30).

Palmieri participated in the 2008 Under-18 World Championships, helping the U.S. win a bronze medal, finishing with four points (2-2-4) in seven games. At the 2008 Five Nations Tournament, Palmieri scored a hat trick to lead the U.S. to a gold medal in a 5-3 victory over Finland.

NHL Central Scouting’s Jack Barzee on Palmieri
“I think Kyle's got a little bit of Chris Drury in him. I look at his passion, his natural skills and his tenaciousness, and that's what I saw in Chris. He's a lot of fun to watch because he has that vision along with a wicked shot. He very seldom passes up the opportunity to make the right play -- he's in position to shoot the puck and has that insight into whether to freeze and dish or just let it go.”

U.S. Development Program head coach Ron Rolston on Palmieri

“He's put together and real strong on his skates, He's got good speed and he takes it to the areas he needs to score goals. He does everything for us and he's a lot of fun to watch.”
