46. Kyle Palmieri

Kyle Palmieri was taken 26thOverall in 2009, and the native of Smithtown, New York, made it to the NHL a year later, playing ten games for the Anaheim Ducks.

Palmieri played 18 Games in 2011-12, and he was fully on the parent club's roster the year after.  The Right Wing was mostly used on the third or fourth line, with his best season as a Duck coming in 2013-14, where he had 31 Points.  The Ducks traded him in the summer of 2015 to the New Jersey Devils.

Palmieri had greater success with the Devils, where he was an All-Star in 2019, and the Ducks probably regret that trade.  As a Duck, he had 89 Points.
