Anaheim Ducks and Trevor Zegras Reach New Deal

Published October 2, 2023 at 1:48 PM

Just in the nick of time. With the start of the NHL regular season just a few days away, the Anaheim Ducks have announced they've reached a new deal with one of their young star players that has been sitting out of training camp.

Trevor Zegras's new contract is for three years, with an average annual value of $5.75 million.

There seems to be some compromise on both sides here. Zegras was looking for something long-term, while Ducks GM Pat Verbeek was said to favour a short bridge deal.

The Ducks still have another restricted free agent holding out for a new deal in Jamie Drysdale. He has also not yet participated in training camp or the pre-season.

Zegras, 22, has scored 49 goals and 139 points in 180 career games with Anaheim after making his NHL debut in 2020-21.
