Ducks loan Hunter Drew to Slovakian club

The Ducks have loaned 21-year-old defensive prospect Hunter Drew to HC Banska Bystrica of the Slovakian league. According to a report on Hokej Portal, the Ducks’ front office reached out to the club to allow for Drew to get playing time prior to the 2020-21 season.

Drew was drafted by the Ducks in the sixth round (178 overall) of the 2018 NHL Entry Draft out of the Charlottetown Islanders of the QMJHL. The story of his career so far has been a quiet resilience — first, making Charlottetown’s roster as a camp invitee in 2016, then doubling his goals from 8 to 16 the season after being a late-round pick by the Ducks.
