Trade Price Revealed for Anaheim Ducks' Josh Manson

The Anaheim Ducks are expected to be sellers at this season's trade deadline and the offers have been coming in early and often. One player they would prefer to keep is defenseman Josh Manson, however teams have called about the rugged defender, wondering about his price tag. If you're looking to acquire the Ducks' defender, expect to pay a steep price as according to Pierre LeBrun of TSN, the price is a first-round pick and top prospect.

So far this season the 29-year-old has appeared in 13 games and has recorded two points. Manson brings a physical element to his game and is one of the best on the right-side when it comes to a combination of hits and blocks. 

Manson is signed under contract through next season at $4.1 million, and he also holds modified no-trade protection as he submits a list of 12 teams he would like to avoid. According to LeBrun the Winnipeg Jets and Carolina Hurricanes are two teams to watch and you can also add the Colorado Avalanche to that list.

The Ducks are going to be busy before Monday's deadline, and you can add Josh Manson to the trade bait list.
