Jacob Larsson had a mediocre training camp for the Ducks.
Larsson, the Ducks first round pick in 2015 (27th overall) was a leading contender to start the season with Anaheim as the blueline was decimated with off-season surgeries to Sami Vatanen and Hampus Lindholm. But Larsson did not distinguish himself at camp and he will likely start the season in the press box or in the minors. "Maybe I could do a little bit better," Larsson said. "I think I can step up my game a little bit. I’m just coming here to do what I can. I think I can play a little bit better, especially in games." Oct 1 - 5:59 AM

Jacob Larsson has some swelling in his knee after playing in the prospects tournament last week.

Larsson underwent MCL surgery in April and it's caused a bit of a problem early on in camp. Ducks general manager Bob Murray is hoping that the issue won't prevent him from playing in exhibition games. The 20-year-old was Anaheim's first round pick, 27th overall, in the 2015 draft. Larsson had one goal and five assists in 29 games with the Swedish League's Frolunda HC last season.

Jacob Larsson will play for Frolunda of the Swedish Hockey League.

The Ducks have allowed him to return to Sweden. He has skated in four games with Anaheim and four games with the AHL's San Diego Gulls this campaign.

The Anaheim Ducks have sent Jacob Larsson to AHL San Diego.

The 19-year-old saw 16:26 on average per night through his first four NHL games, but did not manage to impact the stat sheet. Clearly Larsson needs some more seasoning with the Gulls.

Jacob Larsson cracked Anaheim's roster out of training camp.

"I just want to see him move the puck and play strong defensively," said coach Randy Carlyle. He could be making his NHL debut on Thursday at Dallas.

Jacob Larsson will play one more season in Sweden if he is unable to crack the Anaheim lineup this year.

The talented blueliner was drafted 27th overall in 2015 but it usually takes defensemen a lot longer to develop than it does a forward. "If I don’t make the team, I will go back to Sweden one more year and develop my game over there and I’ll come over next year," Larsson said. "That’s the plan." Larsson had five goals and 14 points in 47 games in the Swedish League last season. The Ducks have a tough decision to make.

Jacob Larsson has been quite impressive in training camp thus far.

The defenseman was taken 27th overall in the 2015 Draft and this will be his first season in North America after inking a three-year/entry level deal in the off-season. Larsson had five goals and 14 points in 47 Swedish league games last season and is a smooth-skating blueliner who is able to make smart plays and see the ice well. He likely needs some AHL time but do not be surprised if he is able to crack the Ducks lineup at some point this season.

Jacob Larsson has signed a three-year, entry-level contract with the Anaheim Ducks.

Anaheim took Larsson with the 27th overall pick in the 2015 NHL Entry Draft. Since then he has recorded five goals and 14 points in 47 Swedish league games.

The Anaheim Ducks have selected defenseman Jacob Larsson with the 27th overall pick of the 2015 NHL entry draft.

Larsson is a 6’2," 192 pound, lanky defensemen who models his game after his favorite player, Oliver Ekman-Larsson. The Swedish born lefty is a smooth, mobile skater who makes smart plays and sees the ice well. He is an all-around defenseman who has high-end potential if he is able to bulk up and fill in his frame. Larsson spent the majority of the 2014-15 season with Frolunda’s junior team where he recorded eight goals and 11 assists in 30 games. He also played in 20 games with Frolunda’s top team last season, scoring a goal and two assists. On the international stage, Larsson was able to tally three assists in five games for team Sweden at the 2014 Under-18 World Juniors. His could be a solid top-four defenseman in the NHL down the line once he fills out a bit. Larsson will need more seasoning before he makes an impact in the NHL.
