More on Rob Bordson.

From the Duluth News-Tribune:

Dave McNab, senior vice president of hockey operations for the NHL’s
Anaheim Ducks, says he was sold on Rob Bordson during a UMD home series
against Colorado College in January. Bordson, an undrafted junior
forward from Duluth, went on to have 12 goals and 28 assists for 40
points in 40 games this season.

McNab, a former Wisconsin goalie,
saw Bordson as a good pro prospect and completed a two-year, free-agent
signing Sunday in Duluth. After recording zero points in 15 games as a
sophomore, Bordson spent considerable time preparing for 2009-10 with
offseason conditioning.

“I saw a player who really came into his
own this season and is on the fast track to being a good pro player,”
McNab said. “We think he can make even bigger strides. He shoots well,
can score goals, definitely makes plays and can skate. We went out of
our way to make sure Rob knew we wanted him in our organization.”

McNab
figures he, along with Anaheim front office personnel and scouts,
watched Bordson in 24 games. The Ducks regard him as a center or left
winger. The former Duluth Marshall athlete reported to the Ducks on
Wednesday for a physical and begins practicing with the team Sunday. The
Ducks, with eight regular-season games remaining, will pay Bordson
approximately $4,000 a day while with the NHL team. He gave up his final
year of college eligibility.
