Anaheim Ducks' 3 Worst Contracts of 2023-24

The Anaheim Ducks are one of the worst teams in the league, so with that, there will be more than a few players whose contract won't look very good. While there are some contracts that are pushing the bad side like Alex Killorn, Trevor Zegras, Radko Gudas, and John Gibson this season, these four have still brought a fair bit of value. There are three on the team that are the worst.

Jakob Silfverberg

Jakob Silfverberg's last good season was in 2019-20 and has just been struggling offensively and getting older quickly ever since. It is finally the last year of his deal for the Ducks and they will be able to get some new blood in the lineup. His current cap hit is $5.25 million AAV and he has just six goals and 16 points in 68 games while playing less than 13 minutes per game.

Ross Johnston

The Ducks picked Ross Johnston up off waivers to fill a role, but he is overpaid for the job he does. The 30-year-old hits and gets penalties while playing very little per game. He is a fringe NHLer at best this season and even for a depth player in the NHL, more than three assists in 56 games is expected. There is a reason why he plays eight minutes a game. He still has two more years left on his deal at $1.1 million AAV. It's a good thing the Ducks have tons of cap space and aren't competitive.

Brock McGinn

Brock McGinn is another depth player that is on the older side and hasn't done much at all this season. He is currently injured, but the 30-year-old has one goal and three points in 24 games this season. He is a bottom-six player that used to contribute more, but is paid $2.75 million AAV for another year after this to struggle.
