The Anaheim Ducks season is officially over and they'll move forward and look towards free agency and the NHL Draft.
It's been a disappointing last couple of seasons in Anaheim as the team looks towards a rebuild and youth movement.
Just like that the team and general manager Bob Murray will be testing the trade market for two of their biggest pieces.
Eric Stephens of The Athletic reports that the Ducks will see what kind of a return they could get for forward Rickard Rakell and defenseman Josh Manson.
Both players were mentioned heavily in trade rumours before the NHL Trade Deadline back in February however ended up staying Anaheim.
While moving either guy would definitely hurt the current roster, they would fetch a nice return which probably would included prospects and draft picks.
Rakell finishes this shortened season on a bit of a down note with only 15 goals in 65 games. The 27 year old carries an AAV of $3.789million through the 2021-22 season.
Manson has been one of the Ducks most reliable defensemen over the last couple of seasons and the 6'3 224lb righty registered nine points in 50 games. The 28 year old is also signed through the 2021-22 season with an AAV of $4.1million however has a modified no trade clause which he has a 12 team no list.
