Ducks sign WHL Kamloops standout Sideroff to ELC


Deven Sideroff, the 85th overall pick at the 2015 draft, has signed a three-year, entry-level deal with the Anaheim Ducks, per TVA.

The deal reportedly carries a $620,000 average annual value at the NHL level. Sideroff, 19, scored the contract after a good campaign with WHL Kamloops, finishing third on the team with 59 points in 63 games.

This past spring, the Ducks rewarded Sideroff with a one-game cameo with AHL San Diego (Kevin Roy, another Ducks prospect out of Northeastern, also got a game).

Sideroff will almost assuredly be back in junior next year, but still could be one to moving forward. He’s currently participating with Team Canada at the World Junior Hockey Summer Showcase, and could have a shot at playing in Finland at the world juniors this winter.
