  • Ducks' Sami Vatanen: Will return to action Sunday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (1/1/17) Vatanen will play in Sunday's game against Philadelphia, Eric Stephens of the Orange County Register reports.

    After missing three games with an illness, the defenseman will be back Sunday. He hasn't quite performed up to expectations this season, with 15 points in 35 games so far. However, with 22:06 minutes per game, and 3:14 power play minutes per game, he will get enough play time to see plenty of scoring opportunities.

    Ducks' Sami Vatanen: Will miss third straight with illness

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (12/30/16) Vatanen (illness) will miss his third-straight game on Friday against Vancouver.

    The 25-year-old has had a fair amount of trouble dealing with a stomach bug that has kept him out since Tuesday. He has been good-not-great so far this year, notching 15 points in 35 games, so it might be wise to give him a game to get back to normal after missing a few games. His next shot to return will come Sunday at home against the Flyers.

    Ducks' Sami Vatanen: Out second consecutive game with illness

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (12/28/16) Vatanen (illness) will not travel with the Ducks for their upcoming road matchup with the Flames on Thursday, Curtis Zupke of the Los Angeles Times reports.

    Vatanen missed his first game of the 2016-17 campaign Tuesday with a stomach bug and it appears it's going to take a little bit more time before he's ready to return. The Ducks called up Brandon Montour, who is in line to make his NHL debut, in order to shore up the back end. The Ducks don't play their next home game until Jan. 1 against the Flyers so it wouldn't be surprising if the team held Vatanen out until that one.

    Ducks' Sami Vatanen: Out Tuesday with illness

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (12/27/16) Vatanen is inactive for Tuesday's contest with the Sharks due to an illness, Curtis Zupke of the Los Angeles Times reports.

    Vatanen will miss his first start of the season due to the ailment but on the bright side, it is reportedly just a stomach bug so it seems probable he won't miss significant time. The 25-year-old blueliner is averaging career-high ice time (22:06) and is on pace for a third consecutive 30-plus point campaign. The next opportunity for the Finn to draw into the lineup will be Thursday on the road against the Flames.

    Ducks' Sami Vatanen: Notches 80th assist in Ducks uniform

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (12/16/16) Vatanen's 11th assist of the season came on Rickard Rakell's game-winning goal in Thursday's 4-3 defeat of the Bruins.

    Vatanen passed Ruslan Salei and Lubomir Visnovsky for seventh on the Ducks' all-time list for assists by a defenseman. With 13 points in 31 games, he's well on his way to yet another 30-point season, and has been a beacon of consistency since joining the Ducks. He's a valuable fantasy defenseman in all formats with his eight power-play points, 35 hits and 61 blocked shots.
