Deslauriers scored an empty-net goal, supplied an assist and took a fighting major in Tuesday's 3-1 win over the Kings. Deslauriers dropped the gloves with Kurtis MacDermid just three seconds into the contest, injecting some animosity into the SoCal rivalry. In the second period, Deslauriers earned the secondary assist on David Backes' tally, which stood as the game-winner. The 29-year-old Deslauriers then tacked on an insurance goal with an empty-netter in the final minute. The fourth-liner has produced five points, 23 hits, 15 shots on goal and a plus-3 rating through 11 outings this season. His two-point effort Tuesday snapped a six-game drought, but Deslauriers can go long stretches of time between points.
Deslauriers collected a goal and an assist with three shots in Wednesday's 3-2 loss to Minnesota. The fourth line of veterans Deslauriers, Carter Rowney (two assists) and Derek Grant (one assist) was the only forward unit to produce for the offensively challenged Ducks. Deslauriers potted his second goal in as many games when he knocked home a rebound on the doorstep midway through the middle frame. The goal was an important one for the Ducks, who were trailing 2-0 and being outshot 24-8 at the time. The 29-year-old Deslauriers brings little offensively to his bottom-six role despite his recent production.
Deslauriers scored a goal on two shots in Monday's 1-0 win over the Wild. Deslauriers tallied at 4:09 of the third period on a pass from Kevin Shattenkirk, and that was all the Ducks needed. Offense has been hard to come by for Ducks not named Maxime Comtois -- Deslauriers is only the second Duck to score this year. The 29-year-old fourth-line has added seven hits and eight shots on net through three contests.
Deslauriers finished his first season in Anaheim with seven goals, six assists and 137 hits across 59 games. The Quebec native just completed his sixth full NHL campaign, and he's piled up triple-digit hits in each. Deslauriers will probably never exhibit the same level of physicality as his eye-popping 261-hit effort as a rookie back in 2014-15 -- and considering his unspectacular offensive numbers, there isn't much else to see here from a fantasy perspective.
Deslauriers posted a natural hat trick in Tuesday's 5-2 win over the Senators. Deslauriers' three goals came in a span of 9:04 during the first period, staking the Ducks to a 4-0 lead. The 29-year-old forward is much more known for physical play -- he has 13 points to go with 136 hits and 92 PIM in 58 appearances this season. This was likely just a blip on the radar for Deslauriers, who typically holds a fourth-line role.
