The 2021 Anaheim Ducks season officially begins tomorrow in Vegas, facing off in a two-game series against the Golden Knights. The final opening night roster has been submitted.

In addition to the announcement of the roster, the following corresponding transactions took place:

  • Forwards Trevor Zegras, Sam Carrick and Andrew Agozzino have been assigned to the San Diego Gulls.
  • Forward Max Jones was placed on Injured Reserve with an undisclosed injury. Per the NHL, he is not missing time due to COVID protocols and the Ducks reported zero positive cases during camp.
  • Defender Brendan Guhle was placed on long-term injured reserve, due to an MCL sprain he suffered during training camp.

All teams this season are required to carry a taxi squad of four to six players and carry three goaltenders between their roster and taxi squad.
