Trade-deadline primer: Anaheim Ducks
The Ducks will likely be sellers at the deadline, and they have several trade chips of note.The youth is here in Southern California, perhaps a bit earlier than planned. Jamie Drysdale, Trevor Zegras and Troy Terry are just part of the young core that’s helped to spearhead the Ducks into the playoff conversation early in the season, but things have begun to fade recently. Sonny Milano and Isac Lundestrom have also made sizable contributions to the Anaheim lineup this year.
