Who was Nic Kerdiles?

Nicolas Kerdiles was an American professional ice hockey forward. He played briefly in the National Hockey League (NHL) with the Anaheim Ducks.

Nic Kerdiles  was born and raised in Lewisville, Texas to a French father and a French-Canadian mother – moving to France before eventually settling in Irvine, California.

As a kid, he took part in the Quebec International Pee-Wee Hockey Tournament with a team of children from Los Angeles.

He represented the United States in their hockey National Team Development Program in multiple prestigious youth tournaments.

Kerdiles won silver with the United Sates at the 2011 IIHF U-17 World Championships before winning gold in the U-18 World Championships later that year.

The United States won gold in the same tournament the next year, where Kerdiles scored the most points of any American.

In 2012, the Anaheim Ducks drafted Kerdiles in the second round with the 36th overall pick. He went on to attend the University of Wisconsin for two seasons, racking up 26 goals and 45 assists for 71 points in 60 collegiate games.

After those two seasons, he signed a three-year entry level contract with the Ducks in 2014. He debuted for Anaheim’s AHL minor league affiliate – the Norfolk Admirals – in the 2014 Calder Cup playoffs. He’d go on to play for the San Diego Gulls when they became the Ducks’ new affiliate.

Nic Kerdiles Biography

Following three seasons of playing in the minors,  Nic Kerdiles made his NHL debut on February 22, 2017 against the Boston Bruins.

Kerdiles went back to the Gulls and played eight games in their short-lived Calder Cup Playoff campaign.

But the Ducks called him back up for four exciting games in the Stanley Cup Playoffs. He was on the ice in Games 5 and 6 in the Western Conference second round against the Edmonton Oilers, a series Anaheim would eventually win.

Kerdiles’ next two games came in the Western Conference Finals against the Nashville Predators. After putting up a blank in that series’ Game 5, he tallied his first and only NHL point in Game 6.

His pass behind the net to teammate Chris Wagner cut Nashville’s lead down to 3-2. Unfortunately, Nashville would win that game which meant they eliminated Anaheim and advanced to the Stanley Cup Finals.

Kerdiles would return to play in the NHL the following season for two games after he signed a one-year extension.

Unfortunately, he failed to make an impact enough to stay in the team and he played his last game with Anaheim on October 15, 2017 against the Buffalo Sabres.

He was traded to the Winnipeg Jets on June 30, 2018. While he made three appearances for their AHL team – the Manitoba Moose – he never played in the NHL again.
