Anthony Duclair, RW, San Jose Sharks

Another "former, future Islander," Anthony Duclair looks to be on his way out of the Shark Tank, with San Jose looking to move whatever they can before the deadline. Duclair played two seasons under Roy in Juniors with the Quebec Remparts, including his draft year in 2013 which saw him go 80th overall to the Rangers.

Duclair's numbers are down this season, scoring 14 goals and adding 9 assists. His 23 points are fifth-best on the Skarks as Mikael Granlund leads the way with just 35 points, and his 14 goals are one off the team lead.

While the scoring hasn't been there this year, Duclair's speed is always a threat. Adding him to the top line alongside Mat Barzal and Bo Horvat would give that top line an even further element of speed on Horvat's wing.

He comes with just a $3M cap hit and is set to be a UFA at the end of the season. It would take at least a second-round pick to acquire Duclair's services, and at 28 years old, he could be someone Lamoriello is willing to extend in the summer.
