    Ducks' Rickard Rakell: Returning Friday

    Rakell (appendicitis) will be in the lineup Friday against Nashville. The 22-year-old center missed the final-seven games of what was a breakout season for him, scoring 20 goals and 43 points in 72 games. Rakell looks set to be a big factor in the series, with his combination of skill and grit on the Ducks' second line being a potential area where they can overwhelm a somewhat thin Nashville roster.

    Ducks' Rickard Rakell: Has yet to resume skating

    Rakell (appendicitis) is out for the rest of the regular season, Eric Stephens of the Orange County Register reports. The team is hopeful that Rakell will be able to resume skating over the weekend and then be available for the start of the playoffs after having his appendix removed. Prior to having to undergo surgery, the center was on a hot streak with seven points in his last 10 outings. The team will provide more updates once the 22-year-old is able to get back on the ice.

    Ducks' Rickard Rakell: Will be held out one week

    Rakell (appendicitis) will be out for one week. There's likely to only be two games remaining on the regular-season schedule by the time Rakell is ready to return. It's an anti-climactic way for the Swede to inch toward the end of the regular season, as the versatile two-way forward has easily set career-high marks in goals (20) and points (43). At this point, it's important for Rakell to get healthy for the playoffs since the Ducks have clinched a spot.

    Ducks' Rickard Rakell: Out Wednesday

    Rakell won't play Wednesday against the Flames due to an illness. It's a big loss for the Ducks, as Rakell has played well lately, tallying seven points (three goals, four assists) in his last nine games. The 22-year-old forward will hope to return to action Friday against the Canucks.

    Ducks' Rickard Rakell: Steals game with overtime tally

    Rakell scored the game winner on the power play, adding an assist and two hits in Saturday's 4-3 overtime victory against the Senators. Rakell came into Saturday cold, registering no points and a minus-3 rating in his last three games. At first it wasn't pretty for Anaheim, but the 22-year-old was a part of the third period rally and eventually stole the game halfway through overtime for goal No. 20 on the year. The 2011 first-round pick already set a career high for markers, but he's now tied his assist milestone at 22.

    Ducks' Rickard Rakell: Factors into both Ducks goals Friday

    Rakell scored a goal and dished out an assist in Friday's 5-2 loss to the Blues. Unfortunately he also skated to a minus-2 rating, but his contributions on the scoresheet made up for it. Rakell now has 18 goals to go with 20 assists this season, a 47-point pace that will ultimately end up leaving his previous career high of 31 points in the dust by season's end.

    Ducks' Rickard Rakell: Nets goal in win

    Rakell notched a goal and two hits in a 5-1 win over the Coyotes on Thursday. Rakell continues to be living right on the second line of the Ducks. He has already set a career high with 35 points in 60 games this season, and he's done that in 11 less games. He doesn't bring just his offense, though, as he's racked up 101 hits on the season, as well. The all-around forward should definitely be on your radar if he hasn't been already.

    Ducks' Rickard Rakell: Strikes for filthy OT winner against Oilers

    Rakell scored the overtime-winning goal Friday against Edmonton. It was a thing of beauty from Rakell, who undressed an Oilers' blueliner, before deking out netminder Cam Talbot. The 22-year-old is having a breakthrough season, notching 16 goals and 34 points in 57 games. Rakell is currently skating on the second line and playing on the power play, so if the sniper happens to be available, he's worth grabbing, as the surging Ducks have now won seven straight games.

    Ducks' Rickard Rakell: Extends streak in win

    Rakell notched a goal, an assist and a plus-2 rating in Thursday's 5-2 win over the Canucks. Rakell has now extended his point streak to three games, with two goals and two assists in that span. The 22-year-old has been having himself a nice start to 2016, with half of his career-high 32 points coming in the last 21 games. If Rakell can keep up this level of production, he may be worth a look in some deeper leagues.

    Ducks' Rickard Rakell: Sets tone in winning effort

    Rakell scored the game's first two goals -- the first on a power play, the second the eventual winner -- in Tuesday's 4-1 win over the Flyers. Playing with Corey Perry can certainly have its benefits, though Rakell is reaping them somewhat inconsistently. While he's operating at a point-per-game pace over the Ducks' last nine contests, most of that production's been concentrated in three of those games. Oddly, Tuesday saw his ice time fall back to 14:41, more than a minute less than his season average -- and even more bizarrely, he's seemingly performed better when he's played reduced minutes recently.
