Add Anthony Duclair‘s name to the NHL’s trade rumour mill.
According to Sportsnet’s Nick Kypreos, the Arizona Coyotes forward could be on the market.
“I’m hearing teams are saying that Duclair could be had at the right price,” Kypreos said during Saturday’s Headlines segment on Hockey Night in Canada.
Duclair, 21, had a successful 2015-16 as one half of Arizona’s “Killer Ds” alongside Max Domi, registering 20 goals and 24 assists in 81 games last season.
This year, however, has been a different story, with just one goal and two assists so far for the pending RFA.
Domi, who has two goals and 11 assists so far to follow up his 52-point rookie year, remains “untouchable,” according to Kypreos.
Despite Duclair’s current slump, Kypreos said the Coyotes could still be asking for a big return.
“If he’s not playing well, what are you truly going to give up?” said Kypreos. “I hear that Arizona would still ask for a pretty penny for him moving forward.”
