  • Ducks' Sami Vatanen: New deal includes modified no-trade clause

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (6/18/16) Vatanen's four-year, $19 million contract extension signed Saturday includes a partial no-trade clause between 2018-20, Helene Elliott of the Los Angeles Times reports.

    By reaching a deal with Vatanen this soon, the team avoided possible salary arbitration with the burgeoning blueliner, as he would've otherwise been a restricted free agent with extra leverage for contract negotiations on July 1. The 25-year-old has produced 96 points (27 goals, 69 assists) in 186 games over the last three seasons. His ability to set up scores while working on the top power-play unit makes him a valuable commodity in fantasy hockey.

    Ducks' Sami Vatanen: Renews contract for four years

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (6/18/16) The Ducks signed Vatanen to a four-year, $19.5 million contract extension Saturday, Eric Stephens of the Orange County Register reports.

    The Ducks realize it's important to keep Vatanen happy, as he's one of the best young defenders in the game. Last season, he registered career highs in assists (29) and points (38), including 19 power-play tallies. The Finn was also effective in the 2016 Stanley Cup Playoffs, notching four points in seven games and snagging the game-winner against Nashville in Game 5 of the conference quarterfinals.

    Ducks' Sami Vatanen: Two-point game extends point streak to three games

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/23/16) Vatanen notched the game-winning goal and added a power-play assist in Saturday's 5-2 win over Nashville. He is riding a three-game, four-point streak (one goal, three assists).

    Vatanen is coming off a 38-point regular season, the best of his young career. And his confidence is growing as the quackers put their boots to the Preds. The 24-year-old is just scratching the surface on what is likely to be an outstanding career.

    Ducks' Sami Vatanen: Good to go for playoffs

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/12/16) Vatanen (illness) is fine to play in Game 1 of the first-round playoff series against the Predators on Friday.

    Vatanen missed the last three games of the regular season, but is a safe roll in playoff pools. This campaign, the young blueliner set the table for 29 scores, ranking third on the team while setting a new career high in that assist category.

    Ducks' Sami Vatanen: Won't travel for finale

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/8/16) Vatanen (illness) will not join the team on their upcoming road trip to Colorado, Eric Stephens of the Orange County Register reports.

    It seems unlikely the blueliner will miss any time in the playoffs, but the team will be without him for at least the regular season finale. Korbinian Holzer will likely draw into the lineup in his place again Saturday, but with just three points in 28 games, Holzer possesses little fantasy upside.
