Read on to learn more about the future of hockey, and get their team division odds for this year’s NHL courtesy of sports betting site RealBet.

Anthony Duclair

Anthony Duclair is a Quebec native and current forward for the Arizona Coyotes renowned for his power play and high goal count. Prior to playing with the Coyotes, he had some impressive performances in the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League, as well as when he played for Canada in the World Junior Hockey Championship.
