The New Jersey Devils would be getting a player with 3.5 years left on his contract but he is 30 years old and struggling. It probably wouldn’t cost that much for the Ducks to unload him at this point, especially if they are scratching him. They’d have to take on a large portion of that contract to get any deal done. Mikhail Maltsev is a good young prospect that would fit right in with what Anaheim is trying to accomplish right now.

They have a lot of good young talent coming and could see a major overhaul to their lineup. Maltsev is currently with New Jersey because of all the injuries and COVID-19 problems they have had to other players so he is gaining some valuable experience. That could really help the Ducks in building a young roster going forward, especially since he has a lot of puck skills to work with.

The 3rd-round pick that New Jersey is sending here is one that used to belong to the Arizona Coyotes. With the way they are playing so far this season, it could be a 3rd-round pick that is somewhat high in the round. Some Devils fans might not want to see Maltsev get moved but bringing back Henrique might be worth it as they are trying to take the next step as an organization.
