The Anaheim Ducks had a good 2016 regular season. The Ducks finished the season with 103 points, tied for the third best record in the Western Conference with the Chicago Blackhawks, behind the St. Louis Blues and Dallas Stars. They had a disappointing playoffs, as they got upset in the first round by the Nashville Predators in seven games. The Ducks entered the 2016 off season needing to fix their offense, where they ranked a measly 27th in goals scored. They had two first round draft choices, and two moves they made were more based on the future. They drafted left winger Max Jones, who is playing in the Ontario Hockey League as a Ducks prospect. They also drafted center Sam Steele.
