Ducks Rumors: 2 Notable Names Listed as Trade Candidates

In a recent article for The Fourth Period, NHL insider David Pagnotta listed John Gibson and Adam Henrique as two Anaheim Ducks players who could be traded before the 2024 NHL Trade Deadline passes.

Gibson, 30, has been in the rumor mill often over the last few seasons. It is understandable, as the Ducks are in a full-on rebuild. A change of scenery may do him wonders, as playing behind a weak defensive group has made his numbers drop noticeably in recent years. Several clubs would likely love to have him still, however, as he is elite when playing at his best. 

Henrique, 33, is entering the final season of his contract, so he naturally makes sense as a trade candidate. He should be a hot commodity as a rental, as he is still a solid middle-six forward who provides strong secondary scoring. 

Let's see if either Duck gets moved this season from here.
