In 2018-19 he managed 34 goals and 40 assists for 74 points in 57 games with the LA Jr. Kings 13U program.

Giants Scouting Director Daryl Anning says, “Duncan Shin has elite talent. His hockey IQ is exceptional. He’s a skilled player that plays a strong 200-foot game. He doesn’t back down from physicality and has put up some excellent numbers over the past few seasons.”

Earlier in the draft, the Giants selected defenceman Philippe Blais-Savoie with the seventh overall pick.
