The struggling Anaheim Ducks could be looking to make a move.
The Ducks, who have only one win in the month of November, have been shopping forward Bobby Ryan, a NHL executive has told Sportsnet’s Nick Kypreos.
Ryan has been underperforming this season, with only 11 points in 21 games. The three-time 30-goal scorer has just six points and a minus-9 rating in the month of November.
The Ducks haven’t been happy with the team’s offensive production, and head coach Randy Carlyle demoted Ryan to the third line during Monday’s practice.
Ryan, who had been playing with Ryan Getzlaf and Corey Perry on their first line, skated alongside Niklas Hagman and Ben Maxwell on the third line on Monday.
“I went to that last night in the game a little bit,” Carlyle said of the line on Monday. “We’ve always been trying to formulate a line that can play some minutes in our third slotting. And putting Bobby there should give them an opportunity to be a little bit more on the offensive side.”
The Ducks currently sit in 14th place in the Western Conference.
