  • Ducks' Sami Vatanen: Will play Wednesday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (1/20/16) Vatanen (illness) will play in Wednesday's game against the Wild, Eric Stepehens of the Orange County Register reports.

    Vatanen's status was a bit in doubt following the news that he had flu-like symptoms Tuesday, but it appears a good night's rest did the trick. The fact that he's in likely means Adam Clendening will once again serve as a healthy scratch.

    Ducks' Sami Vatanen: Questionable Wednesday with illness

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (1/19/16) Vatanen is dealing with flu-like symptoms leaving his availability for Wednesday's game against the Wild in question, Eric Stephens of the Orange County Register reports.

    Anaheim's blue line is in poor shape with regulars Cam Fowler (knee), Clayton Stoner (hip), and Simon Despres (concussion) out with their respective ailments. Vatanen's questionable tag doesn't help matters but it's worth noting that the Ducks do have Adam Clendening on the roster after acquiring him in a trade with Pittsburgh last weekend -- we believe he'd be the one to draw into the lineup if Vatanen needs Wednesday off to recover.

    Ducks' Sami Vatanen: Eyeing new career high

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (1/11/16) Vatanen is on pace to reach a new career high in points this season with 40.

    After 41 games this season, Vatanen has collected five goals and fifteen assists. His 20 points currently put him third on the Ducks in scoring. After a slow October offensively, Vatanen has been remarkably consistent in hitting the scoresheet, not going more than three games without a point since the beginning of November. Vatanen has also experienced a slight spike in minutes since Cam Fowler went down with a knee injury, and given his two and a half minutes of power play time per game, he will have ample opportunity to continue scoring at his current rate.

    Ducks' Sami Vatanen: Piles on two helpers in win over Flyers

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (12/28/15) Vatanen dished out two assists in Sunday's win over the Flyers.

    A strong offensive showing for Vatanen, who picked up one of his assists on the power play. The Ducks have been struggling to score all season, but Vatanen has still managed to put up 19 points (five goals) in 34 games. The 24-year-old is a huge weapon on the blueline and if Anaheim can turn things around in the second half of this season, Vatanen will likely be right in the middle of it. The Finnish rearguard logged 26:01 of ice time Sunday and continues to man the point on a lethal first power-play unit that has the chance to explode any given night.

    Ducks' Sami Vatanen: Leads Ducks defensemen in scoring

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (12/20/15) Vatanen has five goals and 11 assists for 16 points this season.

    His total of 16 is third to only Ryan Getzlaf and Corey Perry for the team lead, and considering all the Ducks offensive troubles, the season Vatanen is putting together is pretty impressive. He's on pace to better his career high of 37 points from last season, and remains a go to option on the back end in both the NHL and in fantasy hockey. A nice little bonus is Vatanen's increased shot totals this season, as he's fired 66 on the net in just 31 games this season.
