Drysdale was selected sixth overall by the Ducks in this year’s NHL Draft. He’s spent the last two seasons with the OHL's Erie Otters, where he’s expected to return for the 2020-21 season.
Seeing Drysdale listed obviously isn’t the least bit shocking. He was part of Canada’s gold medal-winning team at last year’s tournament, where he had three points in seven games, and is pretty much a lock to be back on the team this year. Drysdale is one of six defensemen listed on the roster who's a first-round NHL draft pick and was the only Ducks prospect listed on the roster.
