Forwards Ethan Procyszyn, Anthony Romani and Dalyn Wakely of the Ontario Hockey League’s North Bay Battalion were selected in the National Hockey League Draft on Saturday.

The Anaheim Ducks chose centre Procyszyn with the third pick of the third round, 68th overall, while right winger Romani and centre Wakely both went in the sixth round, Romani 162nd overall to the Vancouver Canucks and Wakely 192nd to the Edmonton Oilers.

“We’re very happy for our players to be recognized here in Las Vegas,” said Adam Dennis, Battalion president and director of hockey operations, who was at the seven-round draft with general manager John Winstanley and coach Ryan Oulahen.

“It’s been fun working with these young men, and to see a dream realized is something special to watch. We look forward to helping them make the transition to professional hockey and take the next step in their careers.”

Procyszyn scored 15 goals and earned 21 assists for 36 points while accumulating 67 penalty minutes in 62 games in 2023-24. In 124 games over two OHL seasons, he has 20 goals and 34 assists for 54 points with 93 PiM.

In 16 playoff games this year, as the Troops advanced to the Eastern Conference final for a third consecutive season, Procyszyn had two goals and four assists for six points.

The Battalion’s first-round pick, 20th overall, in the 2022 OHL Priority Selection from the North Central Predators U16s, the six-foot-three, 189-pound Wasaga Beach, Ont., resident turns 18 on July 11.

“I’m feeling unreal,” said Procyszyn. “I can’t wait to get started with Anaheim and continue working hard with North Bay. I love this sport and can’t wait to keep playing.”
