Holzer agreed Sunday with the Ducks on a two-year, $1.8 million contract extension, Renaud Lavoie of TVA Sports reports. With only 10 points in 61 games with Anaheim the last two seasons, Holzer hasn't generated much fantasy appeal, but he performed well enough in a depth role on defense to earn a new deal from the club. It's likely that he'll function as a third-pairing option or healthy scratch once again in 2017-18.
Holzer (personal) will return to the lineup for Sunday's road playoff game against the Oilers. Holzer is ready to go after missing the last three contests due to a personal issue. He has no points and is averaging 13:01 of ice time during this playoff run, so he probably should not be counted on for production at this point in the series.
Holzer (personal) is not on the ice for warmups ahead of Game 5 on Friday, per Eric Stephens of the Orange County Register. Holzer left for Germany, his home country, Wednesday to take care of a personal matter. At the time, it was said that he'd only be gone "a day or two," so it stands to reason that he could be back for Game 6 in Edmonton on Sunday.
Holzer has once again returned to his native Germany to attend to a personal matter, Helene Elliott of the LA Times reports. Holzer recently traveled to Germany in early April for personal reasons, so it's safe to assume this latest trip back to his homeland is likely related. The 29-year-old blueliner is expected to rejoin the Ducks in "a day or two," so he could be back in time to return to the lineup for Friday's Game 2.
Holzer (personal) is back with the team after dealing with a family matter, Curtis Zupke of the Los Angeles Times reports. Holzer has been in and out of the lineup for much of the season, so there is no guarantee he will suit up against the Flames on Thursday. In fact, of the Ducks' previous 19 contests, the defenseman has only hit the ice in seven of those outings. Even when he is on the bench, the 29-year-old is averaging a meager 13:31 of ice time. Considering his limited opportunities, Holzer probably can be left out of lineups in all but the deepest of formats.
