  • Ducks' Rickard Rakell: Tacks on two more goals

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (2/23/17) Rakell powered the Ducks to a 5-3 home win over the Bruins by netting a pair of even-strength goals Wednesday.

    Rakell's first tally was made possible by goalie Tuukka Rask losing track of the puck, only to sweep it into the cage with his leg. The Swedish pivot would light the lamp yet again for the go-ahead goal in the third stanza. While his assists are way down -- he has just 10 after reaching 23 last year -- Rakell's managed a career-high 24 goals in 51 games with an immaculate 20.0 shooting percentage to boot. Here we have a terrific complementary option to any elite skater that you may have on your fantasy roster.

    Ducks' Rickard Rakell: Delivers slump-busting two-point night

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (2/10/17) Rakell potted a goal and added an assist while going plus-3 in Thursday's 5-2 win over Buffalo.

    Ah, there he is. It'd been nearly a month since Rakell's last multi-point effort (Jan. 12 in Colorado), and he'd picked up just a single point in a five-game span coming in despite regularly seeing more than 20 minutes of ice time. Indeed, even with that little skid, Rakell has become one of the Ducks' most relied-upon forwards, and with 22 goals, he's already surpassed last season's career-best mark.

    Ducks' Rickard Rakell: Pots game-winner in overtime

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (1/18/17) Rakell found twine in overtime to earn a 2-1 victory Tuesday over the Lightning.

    After a five-game absence from the scoresheet, the Swede is heating up with four points over his last four contests. Rakell has been following up last season's breakout in a big way in 2016-17, as his 19 goals are just one off last year's total and his 27 points amount to a 62-point pace, which would obliterate the 43 from 2015-16. However, it's worth noting that he has an unsustainably high 22.1 shooting percentage, so some regression likely lies ahead -- at least in the goal-scoring department -- in the second half of the season.

    Ducks' Rickard Rakell: Breaks out with two points in Colorado

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (1/12/17) Rakell finished with a goal, an assist and a plus-2 rating in Thursday's 4-1 win over Colorado.

    Rakell had been held without a point in five consecutive contests to open 2017, but broke out against the league's worst defensive team. While the 2011 first-rounder has already lit the lamp 17 times in 33 appearances, this was his first performance with a rating of plus-2 or better since his season debut back on Nov. 1. Rakell should be able to keep the good times rolling Saturday in Arizona against the second-worst defensive team in the NHL.

    Ducks' Rickard Rakell: Scores in second straight game

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (12/31/16) Rakell scored for the second consecutive game against Vancouver on Friday.

    The 23-year-old winger is in the midst of a breakout campaign with 16 goals, 23 points and 73 shots through just 27 games this year. Rakell entered Friday's game with a 16th-ranked 2.94 points per 60 minutes among all skaters with at least 400 minutes this season, and he's probably underrated in many fantasy circles. While there is likely negative regression ahead of his current 21.9 shooting percentage, Rakell is an emerging scorer that's generally undervalued.
