Hours after trading away a veteran, Bob Murray revealed he's going to resume negotiations with his biggest pending unrestricted free agent.

After shipping Andrew Cogliano to the Dallas Stars for Devin Shore on Monday, the Anaheim Ducks general manager explained his approach to Jakob Silfverberg's future.

"You take another crack at signing him," Murray said, according to the club's official website. "We're going to do that right now and we'll see where that goes. Silvy knows exactly where I'm at. He's a good hockey player. He's one of those ones right now standing up and being counted. I have to take a shot at it. We'll see where we go."

Silfverberg is in the final season of the four-year, $15-million pact he inked with the Ducks in the summer of 2015. The deal carries a $3.75-million cap hit.

The 28-year-old winger has been one of the few bright spots for the Ducks this campaign, leading the team with 12 goals in 41 games.

He was moved up to Anaheim's top line Sunday night, playing alongside Ryan Getzlaf and Rickard Rakell.
