The Ducks kept their remaining picks Saturday — one each in rounds 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6 — and used them (in order) on defenseman Matt Clark, goalie Igor Bobkov, defenseman Sami Vatanen, center Radoslav Illo and defenseman Scott Valentine.
Clark, 6-foot-3 and 205 pounds, is a stay-at-home defenseman coming off a three-goal, 20-assist season for Brampton of the Ontario Hockey League. Click here for his full Central Scouting profile.
Vatanen captained team Finland to a 5-4 win over Team Canada in the bronze-medal game at the 2009 U-18 championships in North Dakota. He stands just 5-foot-9 and seems to have some offensive upside, according to his Central Scouting profile.
Illo is a 6-foot, 185-pound forward who had 21 goals and 33 points in 47 games last season for the Tri-City Storm of the USHL. He’s a native of Slovakia and doesn’t have a Central Scouting profile. He does, however, have a Facebook page.
Valentine, 6 feet tall and 196 pounds, was a late comer to the draft board. The Ottawa native contributed 1 goal and 9 points last season for Oshawa of the OHL.
