History

2008-09: The Anaheim Ducks signed Dan Sexton straight out of Bowling Green State University after the center had finished a breakout season. In his sophomore year, Sexton led his school in scoring with 39 points in 38 games. The 17 goals he scored that season more than doubled his freshman year totals.

2009-10: In his first professional season, Sexton played for the Bakersfield Condors of the ECHL, where he posted 13 goals and 13 assists in 18 games, the Manitoba Moose of the AHL, where he posted 5 goals and 7 assists in 13 games, and the Anaheim Ducks, where he posted 9 goals and 10 assists through 41 games. By the end of the season Sexton looked as though he was an NHL regular and often played in a top-six role. Two of his 9 goals were on the man-advantage.

 

Talent Analysis

Undersized at 5'9, 180 pounds, Sexton will no doubt have to battle against bigger opponents for the rest of his career. He is not a particularly fast skater, but showed to be effective in the half of a season he played in the NHL. Has the offensive ability to contribute in a top-six role as well as on the power-play.

 

Future

Sexton is no longer property of an NHL club and is playing in Finland.
