The Anaheim Ducks' prospect pool only contains three prospects currently plying their trade at the Canadian Hockey League level, two in the WHL and one in the QMJHL. Their current lack of depth is due in part to large number of prospects moving up to the professional level in 2013-14, and is not an indicator of a weak prospect pool.

The first quarter of the Swedish Hockey League’s 2013-14 season has come and passed, and there’s plenty to be happy about in the scouting community. The number of young, recently drafted players currently dotting the rosters of both SHL and Allsvenskan (second highest men’s professional league in Sweden) clubs is about as impressive as ever, as professional teams continue to have little concern about going to battle with line-ups that often only feature an average age of 23-25.
