Ducks Select Six Players on Day 2 of 2011 NHL Entry Draft
The Anaheim Ducks selected six additional players in Rounds 2-7 of the 2011 NHL Entry Draft today at Xcel Energy Center in St. Paul, MN. In addition to yesterday’s first-round pick (30th overall) of Rickard Rakell (Plymouth, OHL), the club selected goaltender John Gibson (second round, 39th overall), centers William Karlsson (second round, 53rd overall) and Joseph Cramarossa (third round, 65th overall), defenseman Andy Welinski (third round, 83rd overall), right wing Max Friberg (fifth round, 143rd overall) and defenseman Josh Manson (sixth round, 160th overall). Earlier today, Anaheim obtained Toronto’s sixth-round selection (Manson) in exchange for the Ducks’ sixth-round selection in 2012.

“I’m very excited by our selections over the past two days,” said Ducks Director of Amateur Scouting Martin Madden. “We were lucky to select players that our staff is passionate about and are happy about being able to acquire two additional draft picks.”
Gibson, 17 (7/14/93), appeared in 32 contests this past season with the United States National Team’s (USNTDP) Under-18 club, posting a 2.64 goals-against average (GAA) and .918 save percentage (SV%). This spring, he backstopped Team USA to a gold medal at the 2011 Under-18 World Championships in Germany. Gibson helped the club go undefeated in the tournament (6-0) and posted back-to-back overtime wins against Canada and Sweden en route to capturing the title. The Pittsburgh, PA native was also named the Best Goaltender of the tournament, compiling a 2.34 GAA and .926 SV%. The 6-3, 205-pound netminder is slated to attend the University of Michigan this fall.

Karlsson, 18 (1/8/93), appeared in 26 contests for Vasteras of the Swedish Junior League, collecting 14-27=41 points with 45 penalty minutes (PIM). The Marsta, Sweden native ranked fourth among scoring leaders in 2010-11. In addition, the 6-0, 170-pound center also appeared in 14 contests with Vasteras of the Swedish Elite League, scoring 1-3=4 points. Karlsson appeared with Sweden at the Under-18 World Championships in Germany, earning 2-3=5 points with a +8 rating in six contests.

Cramarossa, 18 (10/26/92), scored 12-20=32 points with 101 PIM and a +22 rating in 59 contests with the Mississauga St. Michaels Majors of the Ontario Hockey League (OHL) in 2010-11. His 101 PIM ranked second among team leaders. The 6-0, 188-pound center added 2-2=4 points in 14 OHL Playoff contests, including a postseason career-high two-goal game in Game 4 of the Eastern Conference Final at Niagara on Apr. 25. Cramarossa helped the Majors advance to the Memorial Cup final, going scoreless in five contests.

Welinski, 18 (4/27/93), appeared in 51 contests for Green Bay of the United States Hockey League (USHL) in 2010-11, scoring 6-8=14 points with 14 PIM. The 6-0, 188-pound blueliner ranked second among team defensemen in points. In addition, Welinski played in 11 USHL postseason contests, collecting 2-0=2 points with a +5 rating.

Friberg, 18 (11/20/92), appeared in 23 contests with Skoude of Sweden’s Division 1 league, earning 10-17=27 points in 2010-11. The 5-10, 200-pound winger ranked fourth in the league in scoring. In addition, Friberg appeared with Team Sweden at the 2011 IIHF World Junior Championship in Buffalo, NY, scoring 2-0=2 points in six contests. He will compete for Timra of the Swedish Elite League next season.

Manson, 19 (10/7/91), appeared in 57 contests for the Salmon Arm Silverbacks of the British Columbia Hockey League (BCHL) in 2010-11, scoring 12-35=47 points with 80 PIM. He ranked fourth on the club in assists and second in PIM. The 6-3, 203-pound native of Prince Albert, Saskatchewan also added 2-7=9 points in 14 postseason contests.
