NHL Rumors: Surprising Team "Reached Out" To Ducks About Trevor Zegras

In a surprising twist, the Buffalo Sabres emerged as a potential contender in the Trevor Zegras trade talks with the Anaheim Ducks.

Renaud Lavoie of TVA Sports first reported this unexpected development, indicating that the Sabres initiated contact with the Ducks regarding the star forward.

This revelation has left the NHL community intrigued and somewhat perplexed, given the apparent stalemate in contract negotiations between Zegras and the Ducks.

For the Buffalo Sabres, who have made their playoff aspirations clear, acquiring Trevor Zegras was seen as a strategic move that could significantly bolster their chances in the upcoming 2023-2024 season.

Zegras is regarded as a top-tier talent, and his addition to the Sabres' roster could provide the offensive firepower they need to make a successful playoff push.

Over his first three seasons, Zegras has amassed 49 goals and 139 total points across 180 games played.

The situation raises questions about the potential trade package the Sabres would have needed to put together to secure Zegras, with speculation ranging from the inclusion of promising players like Owen Power or Dylan Cozens to the possibility of a bridge deal with Anaheim, however, it's extemely unlikely the Sabres part with either of those players any time soon.
