Ducks In No Rush To Re-Sign Trevor Zegras?

Trevor Zegras is one of the game’s bright young stars. You would think the man who is about to grace the cover of NHL 23 is someone the Ducks would be interested in sticking around long term. Apparently, that is not the case. General manager Pat Verbeek said that he’ll wait until after the 2022-23 season ends to work out a contract extension.

Yeah, I just don’t get this one. Why wait? The early bird gets the worm. What Verbeek just said is the difference between the Jason Robertson not showing up to Stars camp and the Devils saving themselves a fortune by locking up Jack Hughes early. The longer the Ducks wait here the more it’s going to cost them. These comments I just for the life of me don’t get them.

I would bet on Zegras having a pretty solid year. The Ducks’ number one center posted 61 points in 75 games in 2021 as a 20-year-old. This is the face of your franchise. Why would you want to wait to re-sign Zegras prior to what could be a monster year? Pay your stars early or pay the consequences later.

Sarah Nurse and Trevor Zegras are the cover athletes for NHL 23.

Trevor Zegras is entering the final year of his entry-level contract. Playing 24 games during the 2020-21 season burned the first year of that deal. Verbeek claims that he wants to “[give] players the full year to kind of just concentrate on playing hockey,” which I guess makes sense but it sure doesn’t make financial sense.
