Ducks reportedly set to move on from forward Max Comtois

Anaheim Ducks forward Max Comtois is a restricted free agent, but that is set to set to change according to Sportsnet's Elliotte Friedman.

In a tweet on Tuesday, Friedman said that the Ducks don't plan on issuing Comtois a qualifying offer, which will make him an unrestricted free agent.

"There is word that it is unlikely ANA will give a qualifying offer to Max Comtois this week. The forward is expected to become a UFA, available to everyone." Friedman said.

Comtois, 24, was drafted by the Ducks in the second round (50th overall) back in 2017 and has spent parts of five seasons in the NHL with them. In 210 career games with the Ducks, the Longueuil, Quebec native had 86 points (38 goals, 48 assists), 193 penalty minutes and was a minus-38.

Given his age and what he can bring to a lineup in a third line role, there should be plenty of interest in Comtois and he'll be a hot commodity when free agency opens at 12 p.m. ET on July 1st.
