And the Ducks’ 2nd first-round pick is…

…traded. To Phoenix.

In what has to be the longest first round of any NHL draft in history, the Ducks traded to acquire the third-to-last pick, only to trade it for two second-round picks, Nos. 35 and 38 overall. A bit anticlimactic, but they walk away with Jake Gardiner and two more picks than they had yesterday.
