Although Rickard Rakell wasn't able to stick with Anaheim this season, Ducks coach Bruce Boudreau sees it as a positive experience.
Rakell was returned to the OHL after recording no points and a minus-two rating in four NHL games. "I think he learned a lot," Boudreau said. "I think he's better prepared now. When he comes into camp next year, he's coming here to win a job. Not to just turn pro." Rakell has 13 goals and 30 points in 32 OHL games this season.
