It seems weird to think that the Anaheim Ducks and the San Jose Sharks are involved in trade talks, however, a solid source, John Hoven of Mayor’s Manor, the Sharks and Ducks are involved in trade discussions surrounding Anaheim goaltender Ryan Miller.

Earlier this week, Kevin Kurz of The Athletic wondered if it’s time for the Sharks to address their goaltending, seeing that they now have the worst even-strength save percentage at .896. On top of that, the Boston Bruins won 6-5 over the Sharks, which had a lot of people raising questions over the tandem of Martin Jones and Aaron Dell.

The addition of Miller could be the veteran experience the Sharks need in between the pipes for the postseason. Miller has posted a 6-2-1 record with a 2.39 goals-against average and .929 save percentage in 12 games in a backup role for the Ducks this season. He’s appeared in 57 career playoff games, considerably more than both Jones and Dell combined (44 games).

The Ducks and Sharks are reportedly denying this but, as NHL Network’s Jonathan Davis points out that doesn’t mean it won’t happen.

They might not be used to being friendly and talking trade with one another. We will see ahead of Monday…
