The Anaheim Ducks are looking to fill a hole in their second line this off-season and one name may already be off the board.
Brad Richards, whose contract was bought out by the New York Rangers Friday morning, may also be an option for the Ducks.
The exclusion of the Ducks on Kesler’s “list” could be a sign that the Vancouver Canucks have told him they would not trade him to a division rival like Anaheim. Therefore, with that piece of information, Kesler may have decided to inform Vancouver that if the organization will set limits on where he gets traded, so will he.
There have been no comments from Vancouver, Kesler, or his agent at this time.
With the NHL Draft beginning next Friday and free agency shortly after on July 1, the rumor mill surrounding potential trades and signings will be scalding hot.
