The good times continue to roll for the captain, who now has eight points in his last five games. The 31-year-old remains a lethal fantasy asset, and he should improve on the lackluster 13 goals he mustered in 2015-16. Although he only has one tally so far this season, the veteran is a proven scorer who should start finding twine soon, but he needs to shoot more often; after firing 10 shots on goal in the season opener, he's slowed down since, including totaling only three shots in the last three games.
Getzlaf potted his first goal of the season and added an assist in Sunday's loss to the Islanders.

He fired three shots, a far cry from the 10 he pounded Thursday night. Getzlaf is still a great fantasy play and is a lock for close to a point-per-game pace. Use often and well.
Getzlaf attempted a game-high 10 shots, but was held off the score sheet Thursday in Dallas.
Getzlaf and Andrew Cogliano were the two best Ducks on the ice, though the latter was rewarded for his efforts with two goals. Needless to say, the star center will find success more often than not if he can continue to generate chances at such a high clip. He is once again paired with Corey Perry both on the top line and on the man advantage, where the 31-year-old center excelled with 22 points last season.
Getzlaf has proven to be fairly durable, having appeared in 77 games in each of the past three seasons, but the prolific centerman reportedly has been skating for more than a month in preparation for the international competition, which will be held in Toronto. Getzlaf will be playing in his 12th NHL season with the
