Trevor Zegras may be one of the most polarizing players in the NHL, but there's no denying the young star is full of skill and the flair that makes the NHL must-see for fans.

The future face of the NHL?

With his incredible passing, fantastic shoot-out skills and some of the most amazing goals we've ever seen, the Ducks finally have themselves a franchise star, so what is the current issue?
According to NHL Insider Elliotte Friedman, unlike Troy Terry, it appears the team don't have the desire to extend Zegras on a long-term contract, and instead want to opt for a bridge deal.
Zegras needs a contract for the Ducks and one of the things we're hearing is that's likely to be a bridge deal. It doesn't look like that's gonna be a long term deal. It sounds like Zegras and the Ducks, when it gets done, is going to be a bridge.

A bright future

After an impressive 61 points in 2021-22, Zegras took another step forward in 2022-23, posting a career high 23 goals and 65 points, and for many on the outside looking in, he's the clear future of the franchise.
It's unclear why the team don't want to extend him long-term, but the longer he goes without a deal, the more the whispers grow, and instead of a bridge deal, we may be talking about a trade, but right now, things are pointing towards a short-term extension.
