NHL Draft 2013: Ducks select Shea Theodore at No. 26 overall

The Anaheim Ducks chose Shea Theodore with the No. 26 overall selection in the 2013 NHL Draft.

The Anaheim Ducks selected defenseman Shea Theodore with the No. 26 overall selection in the 2013 NHL Draft.

Here's a profile on Theodore via The Cannon:

Shea Theodore is a good-sized offensive-minded defenseman who brings a lot of offensive ability to the table. He skates well, moves the puck up-ice very well, and has a great shot from the point, which he also is able to unleash as a one-timer very well. He's a strength on the Power Play with that ability. Theodore has an offensive mind, and sees plays in the offensive zone very well. He's a good passer to go with all of these other abilities, and as such he brings the skills-set to the game that makes him a great offensive zone guy.

That said, he's not a very good defensive defenseman, and that will be an area for improvement. He will be a big boost on the Power Play at the next level, but he may not be a guy that gives a lot of minutes because of his defensive short-comings.

Theodore is ranked #11 in the final Central Scouting North American Skater rankings.
