    Ducks' Rickard Rakell: Distributes two assists in victory

    Rakell collected two helpers in Friday's win over the Coyotes. Rakell skated on the second line, firing three shots on goal in 14:48 of ice time. The 22-year-old has been producing for a surging Ducks team, racking up three goals and seven points in his last seven games. He's now got 11 goals and 26 points on the season and is worth looking at right now. Rakell has a lethal shot and been producing more consistnely of late, so if Anaheim contiues to roll,

    Ducks' Rickard Rakell: Has strong offensive night despite loss

    Rakell scored his ninth goal of the season and fired six shots on goal in Sunday's loss to the Kings. A very strong effort from Rakell, who also dished out four hits and was named second star of the game. The 22-year-old is skating on the top line with Ryan Getzlaf and Corey Perry and is up to 20 points in 40 games on the season. The left-winger has gone through some dry stretches this year, but he's a sniper on the rise who makes for a reliable fantasy option in deeper formats right now.

    Ducks' Rickard Rakell: Posts two points in win over Jets Sunday

    Rakell netted his eighth goal of the season and added an assist in Sunday's win over Winnipeg. That's 18 points in 35 games for Rakell, who is skating on the top line with Corey Perry and Ryan Getzlaf. The 22-year-old has a wicked shot and should be looked at in deeper formats, especially considering the fact the Ducks are surging and have won four of their last five games.

    Ducks' Rickard Rakell: Adds assist in win Tuesday

    Rakell assisted on Shawn Horcoff's game-winning-goal on Tuesday versus the Flames. The point was only Rakell's fifth in the month of December, despite the fact that he has been consistently playing in Anaheim's top-six throughout, even spending significant time with Ryan Getzlaf and Corey Perry. Rakell's minutes have seen a nice spike in the past month or so, including some nice power play minutes, which may lead to some more production in the future. However, until that time comes, it may be wise to leave Rakell on your bench in favour of more consistent options.

    Ducks' Rickard Rakell: Busts slump with two-point effort

    Rakell picked up a first-period assist and sent the game to overtime with his late-third-period goal Tuesday in a 3-2 loss to the Rangers. Rakell had been struggling to register on the scoresheet recently, as he had just a lonely assist in the last six games coming in, so this was a nice slump buster for the young Swede. Lacking anyone else to play with Corey Perry and Ryan Getzlaf, the Ducks have stuck with Rakell in a prime role through good times and bad, and they got paid off Tuesday.

    Ducks' Rickard Rakell: Playing big minutes, but slumping

    After going scoreless Monday against the Islanders, Rakell has just one point (an assist) in his last six games. He still hasn't scored a goal in December, and the month's starting to draw to a close. Rakell has continued playing top-six minutes despite his lack of production recently -- in those six games, he's averaging 16:34 of ice time, including 1:44 on the man advantage. A glance at Rakell's game log makes it look like he's losing power-play time, but it's actually more that the Ducks haven't been drawing many minor penalties these last few games. It looks like the 22-year-old Swede will keep seeing opportunities to break out of his slump.

    Ducks' Rickard Rakell: Making impact on top line

    Rakell notched his sixth goal of the season on Monday against Vancouver. Rakell appears to be loving life riding shotgun with Corey Perry and Ryan Getzlaf. Of his six goals this season, five have come in the month of November, which he has spent most of playing left wing on the first line. Rakell might still be hanging around on waivers in your league, so if you're looking for some scoring help, give the young Swede a shot.

    Ducks' Rickard Rakell: Scores on nice wraparound in Tuesday's loss

    Rakell beat Pekka Rinne with a wraparound for his third goal of the season in Tuesday's 3-2 loss to the Predators. It was a solid individual effort from Rakell, who skated the puck through the zone, down the boards and around the net before sneaking the puck past Rinne. He finished plus-1 with four shots on goal in 17:09 of ice time. Rakell has two goals and four assists in his past six games.

    Ducks' Rickard Rakell: Questionable for Wednesday's game

    Rakell (upper body) is questionable for Wednesday's tilt against Edmonton, Ducks radio color analyst Dan Wood reports. Rakell has missed Anaheim's last three games with an upper-body injury he suffered in Wednesday's game against Florida, but could make his return to game action Wednesday against the Oilers. Head coach Bruce Boudreau told reporters Tuesday that Rakell participated in all of Tuesday's practice with the exception of one or two drills, which is an encouraging indication of his potential availability for Wednesday's contest against Edmonton. The 22-year-old forward's status should be confirmed prior to puck drop Wednesday night.
