    Anthony Duclair traded to CHI in 4 player swap

    Duclair wants out, who would be interested and what would it take?

    Anthony Duclair has requested a trade from the Arizona Coyotes, according to Craig Custance of The Athletic.

    Duclair, 22, has seven goals and 13 points in 31 games with the last-place club this season. He has spent the entire season to date with the NHL club after spending 16 games last season with the AHLís Tucson Roadrunners.


    He scored five goals and posted 15 assists while with the Coyotes in 2016-17, one season after scoring a career-high 20 goals and 44 points with the team in 2015-16.

    Duclair was selected in the third round of the 2013 NHL Draft by the New York Rangers and played 18 games with the Rangers during the 2014-15 season. He was traded to the Coyotes at the trade deadline 2015 as part of a package for defenceman Keith Yandle.

    Duclair owns a minus-6 rating on the season while logging an average of 13:20 of ice time per game.

    Possibly a late first or a second + a prospect. Arizona is just an overall joke. They spend how long developing prospects and then these prospects want to move any chance they get. The Boedker/Hanzal/Turris little era failed. OEL isn't happy. Duclair wants out. Prospects fizzle there and really once these players develop they leave. It's the same limbo. This team should be in Quebec. I think more players would want to stay.

    I think Philadelphia should make a serious move as should St. Louis though you need a legit two-way game there. Montreal needs scoring..

    Blackhawks and Coyotes have come to an agreement on a trade centered around Duclair and Richard Panik. Thoughts on the trade?

    For almost two years, the Arizona Coyotes tried to trade Anthony Duclair.

    Now, the Chicago Blackhawks hope he's the right fit for them.

    The Blackhawks acquired the talented but inconsistent 22-year-old winger from the Coyotes in a four-player trade Wednesday. Chicago also got them defenceman Adam Clendening and sent winger Richard Panik and minor league forward Laurent Dauphin to Arizona.

    Duclair has nine goals and six assists in 33 games this season, scoring in each of his last two games after reports surfaced that he had asked for a trade.

    "It's gone back for a few years now where the team wasn't particularly happy with the player and the player wasn't particularly happy with the team and we worked through some things, tried a lot of different approaches in a lot of different ways," Coyotes general manager John Chayka said on a conference call. "I hope he has success in Chicago and does good things."

    Acquiring Duclair is another step for Blackhawks GM Stan Bowman to try to shake up a perennial contender fighting to maintain a playoff position. They put defenceman Cody Franson on waivers Monday and sent him to the minors and have shuffled around their roster in recent weeks.

    Chicago is the third NHL organization for Duclair, whom the Coyotes acquired from New York in 2015 in the deal that sent Keith Yandle to the Rangers. Duclair had 20 goals and 24 assists in 81 games in 2015-16, then had only five goals and 10 assists in 58 games last season.

    "There's a lot of things that go into a trade," Chayka said. "Some of them are readily apparent. You see Anthony play and his speed and skill is obvious to everyone. There's some things that I think should stay behind closed doors. It was a long process. We went through a lot of different approaches and a lot of different things through two different (coaching) staffs here and at the end of the day just felt that for both sides it was best to move on."

    Blackhawks coach Joel Quenneville announced before his team's game against the Minnesota Wild that Panik was out of the lineup and had been traded for Duclair.

    Panik, 26, has six goals and 10 assists in 37 games after signing a $5.6 million, two-year contract. His goal Tuesday night in an 8-2 victory at Ottawa was his first since Oct. 21, ending a 27-game drought.

    "When you look at goal-scorers, sometimes there's a variation in how they're scoring," Chayka said. "We feel like some of it this year has just been some unluckiness. We still think he's playing a well-rounded game, still think he's doing a lot of good things that he was doing in the past. His shooting percentage from areas he's scored in the past is just slightly down this year. We expect that to bounce back."

    By trading Panik and his $2.8 million hit for Duclair's $1.2 million and pending restricted free agency, the Blackhawks clear valuable salary-cap space this season and next.

    "I guess they weren't happy with my performance," Panik said.

    A 22 year old former 20 goal scorer on pace again in year 3 for a dude that was recently healthy scratched? Chicago.

    To be fair, IIRC Duclair has been a recent healthy scratch.

    Steal for the Hawks. The Coyotes are a disaster.
