It was announced on Monday that Trevor Zegras had signed a three-year contract with the Anaheim Ducks. In terms of his progress, Pat Verbeek, the general manager, has a lot of confidence in him. The two had a serious conversation, Verbeek revealed to him what he expects from him, and it seems that they can achieve a lot together in the future.
"I see great things for Trevor. When we look at him, I'm looking for him to develop more of a two-way game, and there's going to be a lot of things that he's going to be able to learn from coach Greg Cronin and how we're going to play as a group.
So I think when I had some really good discussions before we signed the contract with Trevor on some of the things we were going to be asking him to do, and Trevor was all in."-Pat Verbeek said, as quoted by NHL.com!
Trevor Zegras and his future
He was a restricted-free agent.
They are ready to give him everything and make him the player he wants to be. The club is aware that he has talent, but it is necessary for him to work hard to reach the heights. "I viewed it as a stepping stone for Trevor's next contract.
From Trevor's standpoint and from our standpoint, I think there's much upside for Trevor and so we're looking at this as a way for Trevor to become the player over the next three years that he wants to become." Jamie Drysdale's future is still unknown.
Many are wondering if he will get a new contract. Verbeek solved all dilemmas once again. "We're going through the process," Verbeek said. "It's taking a little longer, but we're going through the same process that we went through with Trevor."
