Devils add toughness with selection of Baddock
Physical winger coming off Memorial Cup win with Edmonton (WHL)
The Devils’ selected left wing Brandon Baddock with their sixth and final pick, 161st overall, at the 2014 NHL Draft.
Baddock (6-3, 200 lbs.) celebrated a Memorial Cup win with Edmonton (WHL) last season, collecting 128 penalty minutes to go with six goals and 11 assists in 56 games.
Devils Director of Scouting David Conte:
"A big, strong tough guy that’s evolving. Played on a Memorial Cup champion and got minimal ice time because he was on a team that laden with so much pure talent and older players. His future’s yet ahead of him. He has a willingness and a dimension that when you need it, it’s impossible to find."
