Anaheim Ducks: Best Addition & Worst Subtraction of 2022 Offseason

Now that the 2022 NHL offseason is reaching its final stages, we have a decent idea of most teams' rosters heading into the 2022-23 season. As a result of this, it feels right to begin a series on each club's best addition and worst subtraction of the summer.

In this piece, we will be beginning the series with the Anaheim Ducks. For a rebuilding club, they were pretty aggressive on the free-agent market and are a team to watch in the Pacific Division this campaign because of it. 

Best Addition: John Klingberg

Honorable mentions should go out to Ryan Strome and Frank Vatrano, but there's no question that John Klingberg was the Ducks' biggest prize this offseason. Although they only inked him to a one-year deal, they will provide them with a high-impact offensive defenseman. He is coming off of a 47-point season in 74 games.

Worst Subtraction: Ryan Getzlaf

Ryan Getzlaf announced his retirement at the end of the 2021-22 season, and he's their biggest subtraction without a doubt. Even during his final season, the longtime captain was still effective, as he had 37 points in 56 games. It will be hard to replace everything he provided for the Ducks' organization. Expect his No. 15 to be hanging from the rafters in no time.
