The Anaheim Ducks have claimed Swedish forward, Pontus Aberg from the Edmonton Oilers, Elliotte Friedman announced today

Pontus was taken in the second round, 37th overall, by the Nashville Predators in the 2012 NHL draft. He was signed to an entry-level deal, starting off with the Predators’ AHL affiliate, the Milwaukee Admirals, who he played in 69 games scoring 35 points (16 goals and 18 assists). Aberg made his NHL debut in the 2015-2016 season, playing in two games of the Stanley Cup playoffs, which he did not record a point.

In the 2016-2017 season, Aberg played in 56 games with the Admirals scoring 52 points (31 goals and 21 assists). He would also make his NHL regular season debut and played 15 games with the Predators scoring 2 points (1 goal and 1 assist).

Due to injuries to the Predators, Aberg was brought up to play in the 2016-2017 playoffs. He played in 16 games scoring 5 points (2 goals and 3 assists) including the game-winning goal against the Anaheim Ducks in game five of their series.
