April 2024 – We would be lying if we told you that the Anaheim Ducks made the right pick at 29th overall in the 2019 NHL draft with Brayden Tracey. It’s difficult to understand why he has been struggling so hard in the AHL. He currently has 24 points in 52 games this season. With his height of 6 feet tall, he lacks the body weight to better protect himself. He tends to be too easy to dislodge from the puck. A change of scenery at this point may benefit both him and the Anaheim Ducks. David Calabretta 

July 2023 – Like all Ducks prospects on the San Diego Gulls, Tracy struggled to produce, like the whole team as they finished last in foals for. The good was that Tracey’s numbers did not really decline, but they also did not progress. Last year was a good learning years for the prospects though as they learned to deal with adversity, and Tracey played over 60 games for the first time since 2018-19. It was a stagnant year so hopefully this upcoming season is one of progress. Tracey is only 22, so there is plenty of time for him to regain his confidence and skill. Pat Quinn

May 2022 – Tracey had a very strong rookie-pro season with the Gulls, finishing seventh on the team in scoring as a 20-year-old. He’s a hardnosed player despite his size, and seems to be earmarked as a future second or third liner at the NHL level. But that won’t be for a couple of years yet. – Dobber

July 2021 – Going back to a raw Royals team after the WHL decided to have a season, Tracey put in the time and effort to guide their young players. Statistically, the organization had one of the worst years ever by a CHL team, but the Calgary native scored nine goals with 21 points in 22 games and added 24 penalty minutes. Consistency is still an issue, but the 20-year-old has plenty of time to develop his game as the Ducks have a number of young wingers currently in the NHL. Lucas Main


March 2021 – With the junior season in limbo, Tracey was one of a number of players eligible to make their pro debut. He suited up for 12 games, registering eight shots on goal without a point in a minor role on the Gulls. Luckily, the WHL season is ready to start and the Calgary native has been loaned back to Victoria. Let’s hope he regains his confidence in the bubble during his final junior season as the former first rounder is still only 19. Lucas Main


December 2020 – Tracey was hindered by a couple of different injuries in 2019-20 and was not able to repeat his draft year success. Couple that with the fact his line mates from that season aged out and many started to think he was the beneficiary of playing with stronger, more mature talent. However, he still displayed his goal scoring ability for the Warriors and the Royals, putting it in the net from a number of different spots on the ice. Now could be a time to buy low. Lucas Main


March 2020 – After being selected in the first round in 2019, Tracey has not lived up to that build. He was dealt at the trade deadline from Moose Jaw to Victoria and never really seemed to fit in. He finished the season with only 22 goals and 61 points, down 14 goals and 20 points from the previous season. 

He started the season off with a bang, scoring nine goals and 11 assists in 11 games, but suffered a couple of injuries this season and you could tell he struggled with them after he returned. With an early offseason, he should be able to completely recover and come back stronger for the start of the 2020-21 season. Lucas Main


June 2019 – The second of Anaheim’s first round selections, Tracey was picked because of his puck skills and knack for big goals. In his rookie season in the WHL, he potted 36 goals (including 11 game-winners), 81 points, and took home WHL Rookie of the Year honors. He came into the dub with tons of confidence and his play proved that, showing tremendous patience with the puck and beating multiple defenders. His goals came from a variety of ways: off the rush and finishing with his tremendous wrist shot, using his quick hands to deke the goalie, and using his one-timer when his teammates feed him. He’ll need to add some muscle to his frame, but Tracey oozes skill and should be a top-6 winger. Lucas Main
