The good news for the Ducks is Trevor Zegras is back! That means a countless array of "Michigan" goals and fancy puck handling for Orange County hockey fans.

But the superstar isn't the only bright spot for Anaheim. Frank Vatrano (16 goals) and Mason McTavish (24 points) are growing as offensive weapons and Ilya Lyubushkin is a vastly underrated defenseman. It might not be the year of the Ducks... yet. But this team should go "quackers" all over the NHL soon.
