With the season remaining neutral, the Anaheim Ducks will be calling the AHL

after just eight games with Trevor Zegras’ San Diego Gulls

The Ducks have only scored 1,83 goals per game, most recently in the NHL. Their power play has a success rate of less than 8 percent

So the team finishing last in the West Division will see what the 19-year-old valuable possession can offer them. Zegras trained with the team on Sunday and is expected to be available when the Ducks go to Arizona to play on Monday and Wednesday travel

While Anaheim will be hoping for an energizing boost, they don’t expect Zegras to match his performance at the Junior World Championships last month, when the Bedford-born New Yorker scored seven goals and eleven assists and took Team USA to a gold medal

“I know it’s a great story (and) we’re very proud of this young man, of what he did at the World Junior Tournament, but at the same time we’re protecting him a lot,” said Ducks head coach Dallas Eakins said

“We want him to come along and turn out to be who he is going to be. I hate to absolutely despise a gamer and try to compare him to a man who is 1Has played 000 or 600 games … Can we just take a breath and let him become who he’ll be? “

Zegras, a center that played college hockey at Boston University, was the # 9 overall selection in the 2019 draft

The Ducks are only 6-9-3 on the season and have only scored five goals in their last four games, despite winning one of them 1-0 against the Vegas Golden Knights in February 11
