Don’t let the down season Anthony Duclair has had fool you; he can score

Anthony Duclair is another member of the San Jose Sharks slated to go elsewhere at the right price. And while it’s been a tough year for everyone involved with the organization, it doesn’t mean he holds less value. Duclair is still a player quite a few contenders would want on their middle-six, especially if they are looking to add someone for a reasonable price. 

Before spending time in San Jose, Duclair enjoyed a solid run with the Florida Panthers, especially last season when he scored 11 points and four goals in 20 playoff games. That’s over a half-point per game, and it shows what he can do when he’s with a premier team. 

Given his recent postseason production, it’s also worth overlooking what he’s done this season in San Jose, which has been a meager 19 points in 52 games. While we won’t likely see the winger who scored 31 goals with Florida in the 2021-22 season, Duclair also doesn’t need to be that player if he lands with a team looking for a reliable depth scorer. 

The New York Rangers could be a strong fit here, along with teams with little to spend, like the Toronto Maple Leafs or the Edmonton Oilers.
