The 28-year-old winger has played 56 games with the Sharks this season, recording 16 goals and 27 points. He has been a standout scorer on a depleted Sharks team deep in their rebuild. Duclair will be a great addition to Tampa’s top nine as he’ll provide much-needed scoring depth alongside players such as Nikita Kucherov and Steven Stamkos. The Lightning also receive a 7th-round pick in 2025.

Duclair swiftly made his mark as a goal-scorer, tallying 20 goals and 44 points in his rookie 2015-16 season. With two additional 20-goal seasons, he reached a career-high of 31 goals and 58 points in 2021-22. Despite limited playoff experience, Duclair showcased his postseason prowess with 11 points in 20 games for the Florida Panthers last season. Now, joining Tampa, the Lightning hope he can elevate his game beyond what he’s been doing with a lowly Sharks team.
