3 Anaheim Ducks Who Won't Be Traded During 2023 Offseason

The Anaheim Ducks select #2 at the NHL Draft in a couple of weeks and this will kick off what's expected to be an active offseason for general manager Pat Verbeek. There's been plenty of chatter surrounding the Ducks of late, as reports have surfaced stating goaltender John Gibson is on his way out. While trades are certainly coming, there's a few Ducks who don't have to worry about changing addresses. Here's three players who won't be traded out of Anaheim this offseason:

Brock McGinn

The Pittsburgh Penguins players were pissed off with GM Ron Hextall after he traded Brock McGinn. The Ducks on the other hand, are loving having McGinn in the room. The pesky forward is a great checking line winger who is going to give it his all every shift. His work ethic is a great example for the Ducks young roster. McGinn stays.

Lukas Dostal

With Gibson heading out the door and with Anthony Stolarz set to hit free agency, Lukas Dostal needs to be ready to jump on the opportunity next season. The 22-year-old former third-round pick appeared in 19 games last season, recording a .901 save percentage. While there won't be a ton of pressure to perform in Anaheim, Dostal wants to kick start his NHL career and could do so next season with increased playing time.

Cam Fowler

Yes, Trevor Zegras, Mason McTavish and Jamie Drysdale are not going anywhere and the same can be said about veteran defenseman Cam Fowler. The Ducks have loads of cap space and can afford Fowler's $6.5 million annual salary. He's signed through the 2025-26 season and holds very stern trade protection. Fowler provides a list of four teams he's open to moving too. While it does give Verbeek some options, don't expect to see the mobile defenseman shipped out this summer.
