  • Ducks' Simon Despres: Available against Winnipeg

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/4/16) Despres (undisclosed) has been cleared to return to play and is available to suit up against the Jets on Tuesday, Curtis Zupke of the Los Angeles Times reports.

    Despres, sidelined for the team's previous six contests, will be able to get some game action in prior to the postseason. Since joining the Ducks organziation via trade, the blueliner has tallied a meager four points, but has added 55 hits and 60 blocked shots. Unless you need help in those defensive categories, the 24-year-old is a low-end fantasy option due to his lack of offensive production.

    Ducks' Simon Despres: Won't play Thursday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/24/16) Despres (undisclosed) will not play Thursday against the Maple Leafs, the Orange County Register reports.

    The report notes Despres was sent home to be evaluated, possibly to determine if the blueliner has any recurring symptoms from the concussion that sidelined him earlier this season. "He got hit last game and he wasn't feeling right," coach Bruce Boudreau noted of Despres. "With his history, we wanted to make sure that he's completely better before he plays."

    Ducks' Simon Despres: Back in action Saturday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/5/16) Despres (illness) will play Saturday against the Kings, Eric Stephens of the Orange County Register reports.

    Despres missed the Ducks' last two games due to an illness, but took part in an optional skate Friday, which was the first indication he would likely be available for Saturday's matchup with Los Angeles. The 24-year-old blueliner has tallied just two assists in 19 games this season, and shouldn't be owned in the vast majority of fantasy leagues.

    Ducks' Simon Despres: Participates in optional skate

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/4/16) Despres (illness) took part in an optional skate Friday, Curtis Zupke of the Los Angeles times reports.

    Despres' presence at an optional practice certainly seems to suggest he should be available for Saturday's contest against the Kings, but no update on his status was given following the session. Check back on game day for another update, but with just two points in 19 games with the Ducks this season, there's not a ton of fantasy benefits for using the veteran blueliner.

    Ducks' Simon Despres: Out with illness

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/2/16) Despres will miss Wednesday's game against the Canadiens due to an illness, Curtis Zupke of the Los Angeles Times reports.

    Despres skipped practice Tuesday because of the issue, and it appears the Ducks will be without his services for at least Wednesday. The blueliner's two points in 19 games doesn't really lend itself to much utility in most season-long formats, but his 22 shots on goal and 42 blocked shots give him a little more value in daily contests. His next chance to return now comes Thursday against the Coyotes, while Clayton Stoner will replace him in the lineup Thursday.
