  • Ducks' Ryan Kesler: In consideration for Selke Trophy

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/29/16) Kesler is a finalist for the Selke Trophy, which is awarded to the top defensive forward, Eric Stephens of the Orange County Register reports.

    Just call him Ryan "Two-Way" Kesler. The Michigan native reeled in 21 goals and 32 assists in 79 regular-season contests. His supreme line defense also led to 168 hits and 92 blocked shots. If you intend to play in a league that counts those categories, you're going to want to put Kesler near the top of cheatsheets in preparation for the 2016-17 season. Kesler took home the Selke hardware in 2011. In order to claim the award this year, he'll have to beat Anze Kopitar of the Kings and Boston's Patric Bergeron.

    Ducks' Ryan Kesler: Scores lone goal as Ducks fall in Game 7

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/28/16) Kesler scored Anaheim's only goal in Game 7, but it wasn't enough as the Ducks fell 2-1 to the Predators on Wednesday.

    Anaheim outshot Nashville 37-20, but Kesler was the only Duck able to solve Predators netminder Pekka Rinne. Kesler scored a goal in each of the series' last three games to end up with a total of four, but the former Canuck finishes the 2016 postseason with zero assists despite coming in with 32 helpers in 73 career playoff appearances prior to this series.

    Ducks' Ryan Kesler: Scores in loss Monday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/25/16) Kesler scored a power-play goal in Monday's loss to the Predators.

    It was the team's lone goal of the contest, and Kesler's third through six playoff games. He hasn't put the puck on net much in the series -- tallying just 12 shots -- but he's had success when he does, so look for the 31-year-old to continue logging important minutes in Wednesday's decisive Game 7.

    Ducks' Ryan Kesler: All systems go for playoffs

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/12/16) Kesler (lower body) will be ready to play in the first-round playoff series, which opens Friday against the Predators.

    Kesler reportedly hasn't had any issues with the lower-body injury that caused him to miss the regular season finale. As one of the most dynamic two-way players in the game, Kesler can now focus squarely on helping the Ducks in their quest to bring home Lord Stanley for the second time since 2006-07.

    Ducks' Ryan Kesler: Missing Sunday's tilt

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/10/16) Kesler (lower body) will sit out Sunday's season finale against Washington, Eric Stephens of the Orange County Register reports.

    Kesler played the entirety of Saturday's win over Colorado, collecting two assists in the process. After a slow start to the season, Kesler wound up hitting the 20-goal mark for eighth time and the 50-point mark for the fourth time. Kesler's injury isn't expected to prevent him from being ready for the start of the postseason.

  • April 3, 2015: Ducks' Kesler Back In Friday
    Kesler (elbow) will return to the lineup Friday against the Avalanche, Eric Stephens of the Orange County Register reports.Kesler sat out Wednesday's triumph over the Oilers, but his absence seemed to be rest-related more so than out of concern about the health of his elbow. He'll slide back in as a member of the Ducks' second line, where he's expected to center Tomas Fleischmann and Kyle Palmieri.
    March 31, 2015: Ducks' Kesler Gets Maintenance Day
    Kesler's (elbow) absence from practice Tuesday was described as a maintenance day, according to NHL.com's Curtis Zupke.Kesler was sporting a wrap on his right elbow Tuesday, but at this stage it looks like the forward should be available for Wednesday's game against the Oilers. We'll let you know if that assessment changes, however.
    March 31, 2015: Ducks' Kesler Misses Practice
    Kesler, who was sporting a wrap on his right elbow, did not skate at practice Tuesday, Lance Pugmire of the Los Angeles Times reports.Per the Orange County Register, Kesler's arm absorbed a Francois Beauchemin shot on Sunday, but the forward didn't seem too bothered by the issue afterward, so Tuesday's absence could turn out to be maintenance-related.
    March 29, 2015: Ducks' Kesler Records Another 20-Goal Season
    Kesler tipped home teammate James Wisniewski's point shot past former teammate Cory Schnieder in the first period of Sunday's tilt with the Devils.The goal marks 20 on the season for the American, a feat he has achieved seven times now in his career. While his days of 30-goal and 70-point seasons are likely behind him for good, Kesler still provides a solid fantasy option.
    March 29, 2015: Gibson makes 26 saves, Ducks beat Devils for 3rd in row
