  • Ducks' Sami Vatanen: Back in action Friday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (2/17/17) Vatanen (lower body) has been activated off injured reserve, and is expected to be in the lineup for Friday's game against the Panthers.

    It appears as though the Ducks won't waste any time easing Vatanen back into action, as the 25-year-old blueliner is expected to skate on the team's top pairing and first power-play unit during Friday's contest. The Finnish defender has had a somewhat disappointing campaign with just 17 points in 49 games, but he's still a solid bench option in most fantasy formats.

    Ducks' Sami Vatanen: Moves to IR

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (2/16/17) Vatanen (lower body) is listed on injured reserve, per the NHL's official media site.

    The Finnish blueliner has missed the past five games due to the injury, with the Ducks winning only two of those -- including Tuesday's road shutout over the Wild. Vatanen's already eligible to return based on the rules for seven-day IR, so now it's just a matter of how quickly he can round out his recovery. The Ducks next play against the Panthers at home Friday.

    Ducks' Sami Vatanen: Not ready to return

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (2/14/17) Vatanen (lower body) is unable to play Tuesday's game against Minnesota, Ducks radio analyst Dan Wood reports.

    The Finnish defenseman had originally been deemed fit to return Tuesday, but must have suffered a setback during Tuesday's morning skate. Expect a further update on Vatanen's status to come ahead of Friday's game against Florida and the Ducks' defensive corps to continue with the same personnel for the time being.

    Ducks' Sami Vatanen: Available against Wild

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (2/13/17) Vatanen (lower body) is healthy enough to return for Tuesday's matchup with Minnesota, Eric Stephens of the Orange County Register reports.

    While coach Randy Carlyle listing Vatanen as "an option for us" isn't the solid confirmation fantasy owners might want, leaving your second leading scorer from the blue line out of the lineup when he is healthy would be an interesting decision. If the 25-year-old does in fact suit up, Shea Theodore or Josh Manson would seem the most likely candidates to watch from the pressbox Tuesday.

    Ducks' Sami Vatanen: Doubtful against Capitals

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (2/10/17) Vatanen (lower body) is unlikely to be in the lineup for Saturday's meeting with Washington, per Eric Stephens of the Orange County Register.

    If Vatanen does in fact miss Saturday's game, it will be his fourth absence due to this lower-body ailment. While the 25-year-old has been sidelined, the Ducks have given the top pairing assignment to Brandon Montour who has potted a goal and an assist.
