Carolina Hurricanes defenseman Justin Faulk wants a contract extension in place before accepting a trade to the Anaheim Ducks, according to The Orange County Register's Elliott Teaford.

On Monday, Sportsnet's Elliotte Friedman reported the two sides have been discussing a potential deal for Faulk, but Anaheim is listed among the 15 teams on the 27-year-old's no-trade list.

Just one right-shot rearguard (Josh Manson) is a fixture on the Ducks' defense, making Faulk an enticing option.

The 6-foot blue-liner tallied 11 goals and 35 points over 82 games for the Hurricanes in 2018-19, and he's posted positive possession numbers over six consecutive seasons.

Anaheim currently holds $8.5 million in projected cap space, according to CapFriendly, and the club could comfortably accommodate Faulk's $4.83 million cap hit next season.
