Duclair Linked To Boston



Recently, NHLtraderumor.com released an article revealing a rumor that the Boston Bruins are targeting San Jose Sharks forward Anthony Duclair.




NHL Rumor Alert! Are the Boston Bruins targeting Anthony Duclair?

Duclair has been a top-six forward with plenty of teams in the past but has been struggling with the Sharks thus far. To get him a change of scenery could help kickstart his production and an entire team's offense.

The rumor is also backed up by Fluto Shinzawa of The Athletic.

Fluto Shinzawa of The Athletic has pointed out the necessity for a player of Duclair's caliber in Boston's lineup. With the NHL trade deadline looming, the Bruins' management will have to weigh the cost of acquiring such a talent against the potential upside he brings.

What Boston Would Have To Give Up To Get Duclair



Given how Duclair has struggled this season, scoring only 7 goals, 6 assists, and 13 points through 32 games this year, he would be moved to Boston at a reduced rate.

The speedy winger could wind up in Boston for as little as a late-round pick which is excellent value for somebody who put up 31 goals only two years ago.

Playing alongside a playmaker like David Pastrnak or Brad Marchand, Duclair could return to form and get back to scoring goals like this.
