Getzlaf compiled 14 goals, 48 points and a minus-19 rating over 67 games in the 2018-19 season. The Ducks were in the gutter when it came to offense, and Getzlaf was a big part of that. This was the first time since the 2012-13 lockout that he didn't surpass 60 points, and it was his lowest point total since his rookie season when he posted 39 points in 57 contests. Getzlaf will need better assets around him moving forward to avoid another regression.
Getzlaf (upper body) scored his 14th goal of the season in Wednesday's 3-1 win over the Flames. The goal gives Getzlaf 48 points in 66 games this season, along with 149 hits and 131 shots on goal. Getzlaf missed four contests with the injury but has recorded three tallies and six helpers over his last nine appearances in a strong ending to the year.
Getzlaf (upper body) will rejoin the lineup Wednesday against the Flames. After four games on the sidelines and with a visit to the doctor in the books, it appears the veteran has been cleared to rejoin the action following some muscle spasms. Getzlaf slotted in on the second line alongside Nick Ritchie and Daniel Sprong during practice Tuesday, so look for him to slot in there versus a Flames squad that will be without much of its usual defensive corps for rest purposes ahead of the playoffs.
Getzlaf (upper body) is visiting a doctor in Los Angeles to figure out why he's having muscle spasms, Lisa Dillman of The Athletic reports. The fact that Getzlaf isn't even in Canada with the team likely rules him out as an option for both Friday and Saturday's contests. With only four games total remaining in the campaign and the Ducks well out of playoff contention, it wouldn't be too surprising if the coaching staff ultimately opts to shut him down for the remainder of the season.
Getzlaf (upper body) won't play Tuesday against the Canucks, Jeff Paterson of TSN 1040 reports. Getzlaf will sit for a second straight game, making life even easier for Canucks netminder Jacob Markstrom against what has been the league's least effective offense even with Getzlaf in there. The veteran center will hope to rejoin his teammates on the ice Friday in Calgary.
