Ducks Rumors: Trevor Zegras Linked To "Slumping Market" Team

Trevor Zegras, the talented forward for the Anaheim Ducks, has recently found himself at the center of trade rumors, with hockey analyst Eric Duhatschek linking him to the struggling San Jose Sharks.

Duhatschek's analysis underscores the Sharks' need for a boost in a challenging season and highlights Zegras as a potential solution.

So far this season, Zegras has scored four goals and seven total points across 20 games played.

Known for his big personality and offensive prowess, Zegras could provide the Sharks with the kind of box-office attraction they seek to revitalize their performance in what Duhatschek describes as a "slumping market."

Over his four-year career, the 22-year-old has scored 53 goals and 146 total points across 200 games played.

Zegras's future in Anaheim has become uncertain, particularly after the Ducks traded his friend and teammate Jamie Drysdale.

While Zegras has showcased immense promise during his rookie season, he has encountered challenges, including injuries and concerns about his defensive play and penalties.

This has led to speculation that the Ducks might consider a trade if the right opportunity arises, potentially reshaping their young core while offering Zegras a new opportunity with the Sharks.
