Anaheim Ducks: 2 Players Most Likely to Be Traded During 2021-22 Season

Article at a glance:

The NHL offseason is underway and there's been a ton of movement so far this summer. Along with mega-contracts being handed out and an expansion draft in Seattle, there's been multiple trades that will have huge impacts on the 2021-22 NHL season. While trades will continue this summer, our focus here is once the upcoming season kicks off, and highlighting a couple of players from each team who are most likely to be traded during next season. We start in Anaheim with the Ducks.2 Ducks Most Likely to be Traded in 2021-22Ryan Getzlaf: The veteran center enjoyed his first ever free agency experience at 36 years old, and while he received offers from close to 10 teams, Getzlaf decided he was heading back to Anaheim for next season. The Ducks' captain signed a one-year deal worth $3 million, and he's setting himself up to be dealt at the trade deadline should Anaheim be out of the playoff picture. He doesn't score like he used to, but Getzlaf can still skate with the best of them and has elite playmaking abilities. Teams to watch throughout the season include the Montreal Canadiens, Boston Bruins and Nashville Predators who were all very interested this summer. Getzlaf's no-movement clause will be the end all here.Josh Manson: Like most teams, the Ducks mid-season movement is going to come down to if they are trending in the right direction. This summer there was a ton of interest in teams trying to acquire Manson to add some size and toughness to their blue line. The Ducks absolutely love this player, but his ceiling is a top-4 physical defenseman. Given the amount of interest expected in the pending free-agent the Ducks couple capitalize on a inflated market and receive a ton in return. Manson holds a 12-team no-trade list, and some teams to keep an eye on include the Pittsburgh Penguins, Toronto Maple Leafs and Chicago Blackhawks.Photo credit:  Jeff Curry-USA TODAY Sports...
