The Arizona Coyotes have assigned forward Anthony Duclair to the the AHL’s Tucson Roadrunners.

Duclair had 20 goals and 44 points with the Coyotes last season, but hasn’t been able to match his rookie pace in 2016-17.

“Anthony is a good young player,” said Arizona GM John Chayka. “Unfortunately, he has struggled this season. We felt this was a good time to send him to Tucson to work on a few things and hopefully regain his scoring touch. We hope to have him rejoin our team soon.”

The 21-year-old has three goals and nine points in 41 games this season with the struggling Coyotes.

He was a third-round draft pick of the New York Rangers in 2013, and was acquired by Arizona in 2015 as part of a package for defenceman Keith Yandle.
