Anaheim Ducks

Trevor Zegras scored once in a losing effort against the Calgary Flames.

Fantasy Impact: Trevor Zegras is having a great rookie season and currently sits third in freshman scoring. Zegras is more of a fringe re-draft starter this season but has tremendous value in dynasty heading forward. The Boston University product should be the clear cut number one centre in Anaheim next year, especially with Ryan Getzlaf announcing his retirement.

Former Anaheim Ducks winger Rickard Rakell has been traded to the Pittsburgh Penguins in exchange for a large haul including forwards Zach Aston-Reese and Dominik Simon, a 2022 second-round pick, and prospect goaltender Calle Clang. Rakell, a UFA after this season, carries a cap hit of $3.9M, and Anaheim will retain 35% of it in this deal. Aston-Reese and Simon will also be free-agents this offseason. (Source: Bob McKenzie on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Rakell, 28, is a strong goal-scoring forward who struggles defensively at times, scoring 16 goals and 12 assists in 51 games this season. He will provide a large scoring boost for Pittsburgh as the arms race in the Eastern conference continues. He should certainly be rostered in fantasy leagues and watched with intent. Aston-Reese and Simon are better known for their elite defensive play in the bottom-six, and have 11 and nine points respectively this season. Neither are worth considering in fantasy. Clang, just 19 years old, is having a fine season in the SHL and is not yet with Anaheim. Anaheim begins its rebuild by acquiring very solid bottom-six pieces and a potential replacement for John Gibson. Should Pittsburgh go far in the playoffs, they likely won't mind the high price tag it took to acquire the sniper.

On Saturday, former Anaheim Ducks defenseman Hampus Lindholm was traded to Boston for defenseman Urho Vaakanainen, defenseman John Moore, a 2022 first-round pick, a 2023 second-round pick, and a 2024 second-round pick, with 50% of his $5.2M cap hit retained by Anaheim. Boston also received defenseman Kodie Curran. A pending unrestricted free agent (UFA) this offseason, Lindholm promptly signed an eight-year extension with Boston for an AAV of $6.5M. (Source: Chris Johnston on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Lindholm has 22 points this season over 61 games, tallying five goals and 17 assists. Although not known for his scoring, Lindholm's statistics may improve in Boston being surrounded by more talented players. His fantasy status is worth monitoring, although likely not worth adding to rosters as of this moment. Boston makes a key addition for their playoff push, a necessary move given that divisional rivals Florida and Tampa made key moves of their own recently. Vaakanainen, just 23, has four points in just 15 games this season, and although he should not be rostered, he may gain a larger role with a rebuilding Anaheim team and thus should be monitored for the future. Moore has just one point in seven games and does not merit the same upside Vaakanainen has. As a result, he should be left on waivers. Curran will be an AHL player for Boston and thus should be ignored for fantasy purposes.

Josh Manson didn't find the score sheet but made his presence felt with hits in the double digits. He also registered a plus-1 rating with one shot.

Fantasy Impact: Not a glorious stat line by any means but it's excellent news for Colorado as they've addressed a problem they've faced going into the post season in previous years. If your league values hits, and plus/minus he's a good streaming option and comes with the upside of Colorado's high-scoring offense.
