Arizona Coyotes young forward Anthony Duclair has reportedly requested to be traded, Thursday.
Duclair has struggled ever since he tallied 20 goals and 44 points in 2015-16 as he managed just five goals an 15 points in 58 games last year. However, he has managed to score seven goals and add six assists to his stats in 31 games this season, and a fresh start could help him boost these numbers.
Plus, the Coyotes are the worst team in the NHL, and nobody should be surprised if they agreed to Duclair's demand. Head coach Rick Tocchet has had hard comments on Duclair this week, saying the young forward needed to adopt the system and that he came into the season out of shape.
Duclair was outstanding, in 203 games played he put up 249 points in his junior seasons, including 99 points in 59 games in the 2013-14 season. Teams know he is capable of way more.
He’s already been traded from the New York Rangers who drafted him in the third round back in the 2013 NHL draft. And now, it seems that he will have to get ready for relocation again.
