Schultz expected to leave Ducks

It seems unlikely star college defenseman Justin Schultz will be signing with the Anaheim Ducks, as he'll likely test the free agent waters this summer.

The Ducks have until June 24 to sign Schultz. If a deal is not reached by that time, other teams can step in and negotiate a contract with him, though a deal cannot be officially signed until July 1.

Schultz, 21, was drafted by the Ducks in the second-round of the 2008 NHL Entry Draft. He's considered one of the best blueliners not in the NHL.

"We're still trying to sign him," Ducks GM Bob Murray told the Orange County Register.

According to the Register, the Ducks are so high on Schultz that if they sign him, they'll likely explore trading veteran Lubomir Visnovsky, a proven All-Star.

The Vancouver Canucks, Toronto Maple Leafs, Edmonton Oilers, New York Rangers, Montreal Canadiens, Boston Bruins and Detroit Red Wings are among the teams interested in Schultz.
