NHL Rumors: 3 Ducks Players Expected To Hit The Trade Block

According to hockey analysts Elliotte Friedman and Lyle Richardson, the Anaheim Ducks are reportedly considering potential trades involving three key players as the NHL trade deadline looms.

At the forefront of trade discussions is Adam Henrique, a highly skilled center with significant playoff experience.

Henrique's pending unrestricted free agent (UFA) status at the end of the current season makes him an enticing trade asset, with his abilities likely to draw considerable interest from competing teams looking to strengthen their lineups for a postseason run.

So far this season, Henrique has 10 goals and 19 total points across 36 games this season

While Henrique garners the most attention, the trade landscape surrounding Jakob Silfverberg remains less certain.

Over 36 games this season, Silfverberg has scored a goal and seven total points.

As of now, there has been limited trade talk surrounding Silfverberg, leaving his future with the Ducks shrouded in uncertainty.

However, the dynamic nature of trade discussions means that his situation could evolve as the trade deadline approaches, with teams potentially showing interest in acquiring the services of the skilled forward.

On the defensive side, pending UFA Ilya Lyubushkin has emerged as a noteworthy trade target, particularly for the Toronto Maple Leafs.

So far this season, the 29-year-old has just four assists and a -4 plus/minus rating across 37 games played.
