Shea Theodore has an outside chance of making the Ducks' opening night roster, as the tall but slender defenseman will likely need to beef up in his final OHL season before sticking around with Anaheim.
It's not impossible for the strong-skating offensive defenseman to make the big squad with an impressive training camp, but the Ducks are a deep team with limited playing time for a 19 year-old rookie who lacks NHL-ready strength and defensive skills. Theodore boasts a terrific shot and smooth passing skills which earned him 79 points in 70 games last season in the WHL. He will likely torch that league once again this coming season before getting a real opportunity to play in the pros. Aug 31 - 11:16 AM

Anaheim has sent Shea Theodore to their minor-league affiliate in Norfolk.

He racked up 22 goals and 79 points in 70 games for the WHL's Seattle Thunderbirds this past season to lead all blueliners in scoring. Theodore was selected with the 26th overall pick in the 2013 draft by the Ducks.

Shea Theodore still might make the Anaheim Ducks' opening game roster.

Theodore inked an entry-level contract on Tuesday. "He's actually played pretty well," Ducks coach Bruce Boudreau said. "That's the motivation. We're looking at him and we’re saying he's playing better and better every game. And playing with poise." With Sheldon Souray and possibly Luca Sbisa out for the start of the season, there is a potential opening for Theodore.

Shea Theodore has agreed to a three-year, entry-level contract with the Anaheim Ducks.

Theodore was taken with the 26th overall pick in the 2013 NHL Entry Draft. He could develop into a great offensive defenseman, so he's certainly worth keeping an eye on, but it will probably be years before he has any fantasy value.

The Ducks are thrilled with their first-round pick Shea Theodore.

Theodore is a mobile rearguard who is well suited to play in today's NHL. That said, he needs to work on his defensive game and will not be with the Ducks this season. Of Theodore, Ducks GM Bob Murray had the following to say: "He got a little fire in his belly to be better, to grow," Murray said. "He agrees with our assessment of the things he has to work on. And he has no problem talking about it. We were hoping he was still there when we got to pick." Theodore's skating ability alone make him an exciting prospect. How far he goes will depend on how he improves his defensive awareness and positioning.

Anaheim took defenseman Shea Theodore in the first round, 26th overall, of the 2013 NHL draft.

Shea Theodore is a strong-skating offensive defenseman who sees the ice very well, boasts a great shot and possesses pinpoint passing accuracy. He lacks strength, a physical edge and defensive prowess, but he can quarterback a power play and rush the puck with exciting moxie. Theodore finished in the top of WHL defenseman in scoring with 50 points in 71 games, but has also compiled a disappointing minus 50 rating in his two years with the Thunderbirds. Modeling his game after Mike Green, Theodore’s ability to create and manufacture offense along with his gifted ability to identify and execute good plays are the primary reasons why he is a top pick, but patience will be needed as he develops strength, positioning and defensive awareness over the rest of his junior career.
