Anaheim Ducks Trade Target Suffers Injury

The Anaheim Ducks will be without Adam Henrique, as the veteran forward has been deemed out week-to-week due to a lower-body injury.

This is notable news since Henrique is one of the Ducks' top trade targets heading into the 2023 NHL Trade Deadline. The veteran was receiving some interest around the league, but with the deadline being so close, this injury has the potential to change things on that front.

Henrique has been putting together another solid campaign for Anaheim, however, as he has 19 goals and 33 points in 57 games. On paper, he has the potential to be a nice addition to a contender's middle six, but we will need to wait and see if him being out week-to-week results in his market cooling off a bit. 

Henrique carries a $5.825 million cap hit until the end of next season to go along with a 10-team no-trade list. Alas, we will need to wait and see if he ends up on the move from here.
