• Ducks Activate Jackman From IR

    News: Tim Jackman (lower body) was activated from injured reserve Wednesday.
    Analysis: Tim Jackman skated on the fourth line during the Ducks' morning session, so it stands to reason that he'll be available to play Wednesday against the Stars. The winger, who had been out since March 1 with the injury, has seven points and 84 PIM over his 53 games this season.
  • Ducks' Jackman Back Skating

    News: Tim Jackman (lower body) has resumed skating over the last few days, Eric Stephens of the Orange County Register reports.
    Analysis: He won't play in Wednesday's game against the Oilers, but seems to be trending toward a return to the lineup before the final week of the regular season. Tim Jackman will give the Ducks' fourth line some added toughness once he gets back in action.
  • Ducks' Jackman To Resume Skating On Own Soon

    News: Tim Jackman (lower body) is expected to begin skating on his own back in Anaheim during the Ducks' upcoming five-game road trip, Lance Pugmire of the Los Angeles Times reports.
    Analysis: Tim Jackman was ruled out for 4-to-6 weeks after suffering his injury back on Mar. 1, and it appears that timetable remains fairly firm. With 84 PIM and 109 hits over his 53 games this season, Jackman is one of the Ducks' more prolific agitators, but he's largely a non-entity in every other fantasy category.
  • Ducks' Jackman Expected To Start Skating In A Week

    News: Coach Bruce Boudreau said he hopes that Tim Jackman (lower body) can resume skating in a week, Eric Stephens of the Orange County Register reports.
    Analysis: Tim Jackman still appears in line to miss 4-to-6 weeks in total due to the injury he sustained just under two weeks ago. The Ducks are lacking in fourth-line muscle with Jackman unavailable, but the winger should be ready to contribute again over the final few games of the regular season.
  • Ducks' Jackman Out 4-6 Weeks

    News: Tim Jackman is slated to miss 4-6 weeks due to a lower-body injury, Curtis Zupke of NHL.com reports.
    Analysis: With just seven points in 53 games to date, Tim Jackman's fantasy utility is restricted to leagues where his PIM (he has recorded 84 this season) are of assistance.
  • Ducks' Jackman Listed On IR

    News: Tim Jackman (lower body) is being listed on the Ducks' injured reserve list.
    Analysis: The Ducks made a slew of additions ahead of Monday's trade deadline, so Tim Jackman was likely whisked away to injured reserve to open up a roster spot. Since he last played in Sunday's game against the Stars before exiting with the injury, Jackman won't be eligible for activation until Mar. 9, ensuring that he'll miss the Ducks' next three games. The Ducks had previously listed Jackman as day-to-day, but the winger was reportedly sent back to Anaheim for a more thorough evaluation. With that in mind, it's no lock that he'll be able to immediately return to action next week when eligible.
  • Ducks' Jackman Considered Day-To-Day

    News: Tim Jackman (lower body) is considered day-to-day, Eric Stephens of the Orange County Register reports.
    Analysis: The designation doesn't mean much, as it comes just a few hours after Tim Jackman suffered the injury. He managed only 38 seconds of ice time in Sunday's game against the Stars, and he may not be available for Tuesday's game in Arizona.
  • Ducks' Jackman Suffers Lower Body Injury

    News: Tim Jackman suffered a lower body injury during the first period of Sunday's game against the Stars, and he will not return to the contest.
    Analysis: Tim Jackman suffered the injury on his second shift, after logging just 38 seconds of ice time. With Tomas Fleischmann recently acquired by the Ducks, Jackman was already in danger of losing his spot in the lineup. Fleischmann is expected to make his Ducks debut in Tuesday's game against Arizona.
  • Ducks' Jackman Signs One-Year Extension

    News: The Ducks signed Tim Jackman on Thursday to a one-year contract extension worth $700,000, Lance Pugmire of the Los Angeles Times reports.
    Analysis: While the news is great for Tim Jackman personally, his fantasy value for his career has been very limited. As the Ducks' designated enforcer, Jackman racks up the PIM (84 so far this season), making him as a reasonable option if you're struggling in that category.
  • Goal, Five PIM For Ducks' Jackman In Loss

    News: Tim Jackman contributed a goal and five PIM in Tuesday's loss to the Panthers.
    Analysis: Tim Jackman cut the Ducks' deficit to three with his score at the 14:54 mark of the second period, but the game was pretty much well in hand for the Panthers by that point. The goal was just the fifth of the season for Jackman, but the penalty minutes weren't much of a surprise for the aggressive fourth liner. He paces the Ducks with 79 PIM on the campaign.
