History

2012-13: Deven Sideroff signed a contract with the WHL’s Kamloops Blazers as a 15-year-old, appearing in two games with Kamloops in March following his season at the Okanagan Hockey Academy in British Columbia. Sideroff scored 1 goal with 1 assist and was +3 with no penalties in three games with the Blazers. Splitting the season between the OHA prep and midget teams, he scored 4 goals with 8 assists and 22 penalty minutes in 13 prep games.

2013-14: Sideroff appeared in 12 WHL games with Kamloops and was a dominant scorer playing for the Okanagan Hockey Academy’s prep and midget teams. He scored 2 goals with 4 assists and was -3 with 6 penalty minutes skating for the Blazers. Sideroff scored 20 goals with 29 assists and 46 penalty minutes in 27 games for the OHA prep team. He played 42 games for the school’s midget team and scored 32 goals with 42 assists and 72 penalty minutes.

2014-15: Sideroff skated in 64 of 72 regular season games for Kamloops in his first full WHL season and played for the Canada U18 team at the 2015 World Juniors in Switzerland. He was tied with Collin Shirley for third on the Blazers with 42 points, scoring 17 goals with 25 assists, and was +18 with 25 penalty minutes. Kamloops finished fourth in the B.C. Division, two points behind Tri-City for the final Western Conference playoff spot. Sideroff scored 3 goals with 1 assist and had an even plus/minus with 12 penalty minutes in seven games at the WJC. Canada defeated Switzerland in the bronze medal game. Sideroff was ranked 134th amongst North American skaters in the Central Scouting final rankings and was selected by Anaheim in the third round (84th overall) in the 2015 NHL Draft.

Talent Analysis

Sideroff is a high energy player who can play in all situations and gets under the opponent's skin. Sideroff does not overwhelm with his technical skills or prolific offensive game but is reliable in all three zones and plays with consistent effort.

Future

Sideroff is among the leading scorers for Kamloops in 2015-16 in his second season with the Blazers. Kamloops is battling Prince George, Portland, Spokane and Tri-City for the final Western Conference playoff spots. Still maturing physically and developing both his technical and tactical game, Sideroff projects as a solid lower line forward at the NHL level.

If the Anaheim Ducks management and scouts have done one thing right in their recent history, it is that they have made the top end picks count. While every team has its missed opportunities, flops, and top picks that do not live up to expectations, the Ducks have had an enviable success rate. The mid-season Top 20 features 13 players from rounds one through three, while the top ten features eight players from the first and second rounds. They are getting wonderful seasons from their best prospects, and that is one of the many reasons why the Ducks pipeline is considered one of the more promising in the NHL. It is a group whose promise goes even deeper than the twenty names here.

The Anaheim Ducks have so few CHL and Junior A Prospects that this might seem like an altogether minor report. However, two of their junior prospects are having great seasons thus far. Both Deven Sideroff and Julius Nattinen have some definite staying power in the Ducks pipeline, and both play refreshingly different styles. With most of the Ducks prospects pushing for future roles at the pro level or developing more long-term at the collegiate level, these two players remain near the forefront of Anaheim’s prospect pool due the positive outlook.

If contenders are built from the goal out, then the league must be a little bit jealous when it comes to the defensive pipeline and the major goaltending prospect the Anaheim Ducks currently hold. It seems like every single year, when everyone would figure the Ducks to go for a forward in the early rounds, they go back to the well and select another highly skilled defenseman.
