Devils select skilled Dudek in sixth round




 
The Devils used the first of two sixth-round picks to take center Joey Dudek 152nd overall at the 2014 NHL Draft.

For Dudek, athleticism runs in the family: his father Joe played for the Denver Broncos and was Sports Illustrated’s pick to win the 1985 Heisman Trophy after breaking Walter Payton’s NCAA record for career touchdowns.

Dudek skated in high school last season, posting nine goals, 35 assists for Kimball Union Academy (N.H.). KUA went 26-6-5, claiming their second NEPSAC Small School Championship in three years.

The Derry, N.H., native, who converted to center from wing two years ago, is slated to play in Dubuque (USHL) next season. He has committed to Boston College for 2015-16.

Devils Director of Scouting David Conte:
"He has a significant ways to go, but he has a very high skill level as-is. … He does have pure, natural talent which deviates a little bit from the physical presence that dominated the early part of our draft. … No better program than Boston College."
