Lukas Dostal has broken news of his own signing, posting on Instagram that he has signed a three-year entry-level contract with the Anaheim Ducks. Dostal spent this year playing in several leagues in Europe, including in the Czech Republic and Finland. The team has not yet officially announced the signing.
Selected in the third round last June, Dostal was the sixth goaltender off the board. The 18-year-old may be best known for his incredible performance at the World Juniors, where he posted a .957 save percentage and 1.25 goals against average through four games. The young goaltender was good for his Czech second league team as well, but really shined for Ilves in Finland’s Liiga. It’s not clear if he will come over right away, or if the plan is to leave him in Europe to develop further.
