Anaheim had won two games in a row against St. Louis, but then dropped their matchup against red-hot Colorado. The Ducks will start a two games series against the Arizona Coyotes tonight. Anaheim is 3-7-0 in their last 10 games. The Ducks have 28 points and are currently last in the West Division.
Many are concerned with the current situation of this team and the trade rumors continue to grow. We discussed the state of Anaheim here: Drysdale Era Begins?
The Ducks traded Antoine Morand and a 2023 conditional 7th round draft pick to the Tampa Bay Lightning Alexander Volkov. He did practice with the team yesterday. He was added to the roster and will wear number 92. For full trade details & analysis visit: Ducks Acquire Volkov
