The Chicago Blackhawks are stirring up the NHL trade rumor mill with keen interest in bringing back former player Anthony Duclair from the San Jose Sharks.

This pursuit comes as the Blackhawks grapple with injuries to key players like Tyler Johnson and Andreas Athanasiou, alongside the recent departure of Corey Perry. Duclair, known for his speed and scoring prowess, emerges as a fitting solution to fortify the team's offensive capabilities, especially alongside rising star Connor Bedard.

Duclair's versatility and ability to create scoring opportunities align seamlessly with the Blackhawks' playing style.

Despite the ongoing trade rumors mentioning various targets, Duclair stands out as a financially viable and compelling choice. The 28-year-old forward has already notched seven goals and 13 points this season with the struggling Sharks.


As the NHL trade deadline looms on March 8, Blackhawks management faces the crucial decision of weighing the potential benefits of acquiring Duclair against the associated costs.

If the trade materializes, it could prove to be a game-changing addition for the Blackhawks, especially considering Duclair's impressive performance in the 2021-22 season, where he tallied 31 goals and 58 points with the Florida Panthers.
