Zegras recorded an assist, two shots on goal and two PIM in Monday's 6-5 overtime win over the Kings.
Zegras picked out Adam Henrique, who scored three minutes into overtime to give the Ducks a wild win. The helper was Zegras' second in seven games since he became a regular in the lineup. He only played 8:46 in Monday's contest, his lowest ice time yet, but he was on the ice when it mattered most. Expect Zegras to continue seeing premium ice time -- the ninth overall pick from 2019 won't benefit as much if he's on a checking line.
Zegras was promoted to the active roster Monday and will play against the Kings.
The 19-year-old forward has one assist through six games to begin his NHL career. Zegras will skate on the second line.
Zegras was demoted to the taxi squad Sunday, CapFriendly reports.
Zegras has one assist through his first six NHL games. He was a healthy scratch for Saturday's game against Colorado, so it's unclear if he'll rejoin the active roster before Monday's game against the Kings.
Zegras recorded an assist in Wednesday's 3-2 loss to the Blues.
Zegras set up Rickard Rakell for a goal in the final seconds of the third period. It didn't change the result, but it checked off a milestone for Zegras. The 19-year-old forward needed five games to get his first NHL point. He also played 20:42 in Wednesday's contest -- the more playing time the first-round pick from 2019 gets, the more likely he'll be productive.
Zegras was promoted to the active roster Wednesday, per CapFriendly.
Zegras generated some strong scoring chances through his first NHL games, but he has yet to notch his first point despite firing nine shots on net and garnering consistent power-play time. The 19-year-old is slated to play on the third line next to Isac Lundestrom in Wednesday's matchup versus the Blues.
Zegras was demoted to the taxi squad Tuesday, per CapFriendly.
Zegras has worked in a top-six role since he was recalled to the parent club. The 19-year-old is still in search of his first NHL point. He will likely be promoted again prior to Wednesday's game versus the Blues.
Zegras was recalled from AHL San Diego on Sunday.
Zegras is expected to make his highly anticipated NHL debut in Monday's game versus the Coyotes. The 19-year-old skated on the second line with Sam Steel and Jacob Silfverberg during Sunday's practice, and he figures to pick up some power-play usage as well. The leap to the NHL will be his toughest test yet, especially for a player of his size (6-foot, 169 pounds). However, he's proven himself at every level so far. The ninth overall pick in 2019, Zegras dominated at Boston University as an 18-year-old, posting 36 points over 33 games. He went on to torch the 2021 IIHF World Junior Championships to the tune of 18 points over seven games. And the AHL couldn't stop his momentum, as Zegras provided four goals and five assists over eight contests.
Zegras skated with the Ducks on Sunday and could be officially recalled for Monday's game versus the Coyotes, Eric Stephens of The Athletic reports.
There has yet to be an official transaction revealing that Zegras is with the big club, but it's only a matter of time before he's officially on the Ducks' active roster. The 19-year-old skated with Sam Steel and Jakob Silfverberg at Sunday's practice, and Stephens indicated that Zegras will make his NHL debut Monday. Zegras has dominated at every level, putting up 36 points over 33 games at Boston University as an 18-year-old and collecting 18 points over seven games at the 2021 IIHF World Junior Championships. He outgrew the AHL ranks quickly, too, producing nine points over eight contests. For a Ducks team that has scored 33 goals through 18 games, Zegras could bring a much-needed spark to the lineup.
Zegras was assigned to AHL San Diego on Wednesday, per TSN.
Zegras won't be rushed to the NHL -- the Ducks want him to earn the spot through good play in the minors. Zegras should be a top-six option with the Gulls, but there's no guarantee he will skate with the big club this season. Dynasty managers should keep him stashed, as the first-round pick from 2019 is likely only a year away from a role in Anaheim.
Zegras took home the MVP award at the 2021 World Junior Championships, per TSN.
Zegras led the tournament in scoring with 18 points (seven goals, 11 assists) in seven games. He recorded a goal and an assist for Team USA in the championship game, a 2-0 win over Team Canada. The 19-year-old Boston University product won't have much time to celebrate -- he and five other prospects for the Kings and the Ducks are headed on a chartered flight to California to attend their respective teams' training camps, Bob McKenzie of TSN reports. Zegras is considered a long-shot to make the Ducks' Opening Night roster in 2020-21, but dynasty managers should stash him ahead of 2021-22.
Zegras signed a three-year, entry-level contract with the Ducks on Friday.
Zegras recently finished his freshman season at Bostun University, during which he racked up 11 goals and 36 points in just 33 games. The 2019 first-round pick will likely spend most, if not all of the 2020-21 campaign in the minors, but it wouldn't be surprising to see him make the jump to the NHL the following year.
Zegras picked up a pair of goals in Boston University's 5-4 "double overtime" loss to Northeastern in the finals of the Beanpot Championship Tournament on Monday.
Double overtime is in parenthesis because in the eyes of the NCAA, this game goes in the record books as a tie. It never would have even gotten that far if Zegras didn't score to tie the game with just over a second left in regulation. He was the most dangerous player on either team throughout the course of the evening. The 2019 Anaheim first-rounder (9th overall) leads all Hockey East freshman in scoring with 19 points in 14 games. Zegras was also brilliant for Team USA at the World Juniors over the holiday season. Stranger things have happened, but Zegras's chances of returning to BU for a sophomore season appear to be dwindling by the day.
Zegras racked up four assists to help Team USA to a 6-3 win over Germany at the 2020 IIHF World Junior Championship on Friday.
All four of Zegras' helpers were of the "primary" variety and they all came over the course of the first two periods. The outburst was made even more impressive by the fact that Zegras saw just 4:44 worth of ice time over the course of the first 40 minutes of play. Simply put, Team USA head coach Scott Sandelin needs to find Zegras more playing time. The 2019 Anaheim first-rounder (9th overall) is one of his club's top offensive weapons.
