Trevor Zegras signing: Ducks, star forward agree to three-year contract extension

According to a team release, the Anaheim Ducks have extended top forward Trevor Zegras’ contract for another three years. According to Emily Kaplan of ESPN, the agreement will be worth $5.75 million on average year.

Before this new contract, Zegras was a restricted free agent.

Ducks general manager Pat Verbeek expressed his happiness by saying, “We are very pleased to be able to get Trevor signed and back on the ice where he belongs.” We consider Trevor n important and valuable player and team member, and we can’t wait to see what his future holds.

With 65 points (23 goals and 42 assists), Zegras just finished a season in which he was the Ducks’ leading scorer. In two of his first three NHL seasons, the 22-year-old scored 23 goals.

Zegras will play his fourth NHL season in 2023–24 after being picked by Anaheim with the No. 9 selection in the 2019 NHL Draft. During the 2021–22 season, he was a finalist for the Calder Trophy as the league’s best rookie.

The Ducks were scrambling to reach an agreement with Zegras as the 2023–24 season draws near. According to Kaplan, the Ducks initially had no intention of signing Zegras to a long-term contract, and their initial offer was far less than the $5.75 million the two parties ultimately agreed upon.

Only the second player in franchise history, the standout center, has scored 60 points in several seasons before turning 23. Over the previous two seasons, Zegras has amassed 126 points (46 goals and 80 assists) for a Ducks squad still in rebuilding mode.

As soon as Zegras is formally committed, the organization will turn its attention to re-signing restricted free-agent defender Jamie Drysdale.
