Anthony Duclair (born August 26, 1995) is a Canadian professional ice hockey forward currently with the Arizona Coyotes of the National Hockey League (NHL). Duclair was selected by the New York Rangers in the third round (80th overall) of the 2013 NHL Entry Draft.
Duclair spent three seasons with the Quebec Remparts of the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League (QMJHL). He scored an impressive 50 goals in 59 games during the 2013–14 QMJHL season. Duclair was rewarded for his outstanding play being named to the QMJHL First All-Star Team.
New York Rangers
On January 2, 2014, Duclair was signed to a three-year entry-level contract with the New York Rangers. Duclair impressed the Rangers with his performance in the 2014–15 preseason, leading the team with 5 points in 5 games. On October 6, 2014, defenceman Steven Kampfer and centre Andrew Yogan were traded to the Florida Panthers for forward Joey Crabb, securing an opening-night roster position for Duclair.
On October 27, 2014, Duclair scored his first NHL goal against Darcy Kuemper of the Minnesota Wild. On January 6, 2015, Duclair was assigned to the Quebec Remparts for the remainder of 2014–15 season.
Arizona Coyotes' GM Don Maloney confirmed fan speculation by stating that he acquired Duclair from the New York Rangers in the hopes that he would develop line chemistry with a rookie they already possessed, Max Domi. This is due to the fact that during the 2015 World Junior Ice Hockey Championship both Duclair and Domi showed visible chemistry and were key components in leading team Canada to gold.
On October 14, 2015, Duclair scored his first career NHL hat trick in a 4-0 shutout against the Anaheim Ducks. Fellow rookie Max Domi pitched in a goal of his own and an assist on one of Duclair's goals.
On January 19, 2017, Duclair was demoted to the team's AHL farm team, the Tucson Roadrunners due to a lack of production. On March 3, 2017 he returned to the Coyotes.
