Holzer signed a one-year contract with the Ducks on Tuesday, Yahoo's Josh Cooper reports. Holzer appeared in 29 games with the Ducks throughout the 2015-16 season, averaging just 14:45 of ice time per game to go along with three total assists and zero goals. The 28-year-old figures to once again provide Anaheim with additional depth as a defenseman.
Holzer (illness) will play Wednesday against the Flames. Holzer's return to action won't have any impact on fantasy owners' lineups, as the 28-year-old blueliner has only tallied three assists in 24 games this season.
Holzer will skip Monday's game against the Oilers with an illness. Illnesses generally don't cost players too much time, but it will at least force him to miss one contests Monday. Even when healthy, the blueliner owns just three points through 24 games and has averaged just 14:25 of ice time, leaving him well off the radar in both season-long and daily formats.
Holzer dished out a pair of helpers in Monday's win over the Devils. Playing in just his second game since Jan. 23, Holzer also finished with a plus-2 rating and had by far his best night of the season. The 28-year-old now has just three points on the season and likely won't see the ice too much going forward.
Holzer was reassigned to AHL San Diego on Thursday for conditioning purposes, Eric Stephens of the Orange County Register reports. Having not drawn into the lineup since Jan. 23, it's understandable that the blueliner needs to knock some rust off. It probably won't be long before he rejoins the Ducks, but it will likely remain status quo in regards to his playing time, making him an undesirable option in fantasy.
