Fluto Shinzawa of the Boston Globe reports that Jonas Hiller and the Ducks could part ways this offseason.
Many players could be shuffling out of Buffalo, including defensemen Christian Ehrhoff and Tyler Myers and forwards Chris Stewart and Drew Stafford.
Capitals GM George McPhee is in the last year of his contract, so this season’s outcome could decide his future in Washington. Jaroslav Halak did his part by winning his first game since arriving from Buffalo in a trade.
Here’s a closer look at the Kings and Ducks going into the deadline:
Kings: Additional scoring to aid their 28th-ranked offense, which averages 2.32 goals per game.
Ducks: A big center or a veteran defenseman to make them even more difficult to play against.
The Anaheim Ducks hope to add a veteran stay-at-home defenseman by the trade deadline and will pick up their search in the near future.
Ducks GM Bob Murray has explored the marketplace and is expected to intensify talks as early as next week, when teams resume practices in the final stretch of the Olympic break.
The Ducks had been engaged in trade talks with the New York Rangers about defenseman Dan Girardi, who is in the final year of his contract and can become an unrestricted free agent July 1.
