Red Deer Rebels forward Ben King was selected by the Anaheim Ducks in round four, 107th overall at the 2022 NHL Draft in Montreal on Friday.

The Vernon, BC native is coming off a career year with the Rebels in which he led the Western Hockey League with 52 goals. His 105 points placed him second in league scoring behind only his linemate, Arshdeep Bains.

King also led the WHL with 24 power play goals and 15 game winners, second-best in WHL history and just one back of the single-season record. He was named to the Central Division First All-Star Team and as Central Division Player of the Year. Prior to being drafted by Anaheim, King, who turned 20 in May, attended prospects camp in 2021 with the Calgary Flames.
