It took a while for the Anaheim Ducks and their star player Trevor Zegras to agree on the terms of a contract extension. So much so that his name has been involved in numerous trade rumors, including with the Canadiens.

The connection is quite simple, as Zegras and Caufield are best friends, and Martin St-Louis has been seen with the Ducks' forward on several occasions. At the start of this season, things have been challenging for him in Anaheim, and his coach is already sending him a message.

The Anaheim Ducks have not been happy with Trevor Zegras this season, and last game a message was sent.

Zegras was benched for half of the game, as he has just 1 assist through 6 games. Zegras' effort level has been criticized, making poor decisions all over the ice. His defensive game has never been sound, but it's standing out more with the lack of offense.


Anaheim's new coach, Greg Cronin, is making it known to Trevor early that his play is not acceptable.

With just one point in six games, he's certainly far from his usual production, but it's worth noting that he didn't have a training camp. However, the team's future at center seems to lie with Leo Carlsson and Mason McTavish, making Zegras less untouchable.

In summary, with the right offer, the number 11 could leave Anaheim, and according to many, Kent Hughes must absolutely give it a try. It's a situation to follow, but it's not the type of trade Hughes typically favors, as he will have to pay a high price to acquire him. So, expectations should be tempered.
