History

2010-11: Warg returned to his native season after two seasons in the WHL and skated for Orebro in AllSvenskan (Sweden's second league). In 50 games for third-place Orebro he scored 1 goal with 6 assists and was +10. Warg was the team leader in penalty minutes with 129 PMs. In 10 games in the six-team Kvalserien playoff tournament he had 1 assist with 37 PMs. Orebro failed to reach the Elitserien, finishing fifth.

2011-12: Warg played for Orebro in AllSvenskan in his second pro season in Sweden. In 51 games he scored 2 goals with 3 assists and was +5 with 42 penalty minutes. Orebro finished first in Allsvenskan but failed to earn a spot in the Elitserien for 2012-13: finishing 5th in the six-team Kval Series. Warg was an even plus/minus with no points and 14 penalty minutes in 10 Kval Series games.

2012-13: Warg went from Orebro to Vasteras in his third AllSvenskan season. A teammate of fellow Ducks prospect Tim Heed with Vasteras, Warg was the leading scorer amongst defensemen with 4 goals and 15 assists in 52 games and was +21 with 40 penalty minutes. Vasteras finished third in the regular season but came up short in the quest for an SHL slot in 2013-14; finishing fourth in the Kval Series. Warg scored 1 goal with 1 assist and was -6 with 2 penalty minutes in 10 Kval Series games. He signed a two-year entry-level contract with Anaheim in May, 2013.

 

Talent Analysis

Warg is a smart player who makes good passes and skates well. He will need to fill out and learn the North American style of play. With the right development, he has the size and skills required to become a solid NHL defenseman.

 

Anaheim Ducks have even more firepower developing at minor league level

John Gibson - Norfolk Admirals

In what could be regarded as a development year with all the incoming young players, the Norfolk Admirals are off to a respectable 20-13-1-5 start. Norfolk stood to lose quite a few valuable players to the Anaheim Ducks this season, and with players like Hampus Lindholm, Sami Vatanen, Emerson Etem, Frederik Andersen, and Patrick Maroon all spending considerable time in the NHL in 2013-14 that fear became a reality.

The Anaheim Ducks' brass has done an excellent job maintaining depth throughout their prospect pool in recent years. They have done incredibly well in the past few drafts, adding players who can score, but also players capable of playing a responsible two-way game.

Josh Brittain - Anaheim Ducks

Drafting is not always an exact science, and scouting is indeed one of the toughest jobs in the world. In 2008, the Anaheim Ducks had a draft you could describe as disappointing. While the franchise hit big with talented blueliners in Jake Gardiner and Justin Schultz, neither would ever don an Anaheim uniform, instead breaking into the NHL with Toronto and Edmonton respectively. The rest of the draft was a mixed bag of busts, project players, and depth acquisitions. While every draft is going to have the aforementioned group, the Ducks had very little to take away from a 2008 NHL Draft class that has produced many NHL players across all rounds.
