Getzlaf produced 13 goals and 42 points in 69 games prior to the league suspending play in mid-March. In terms of declining play, it's been more of the same for the veteran Ducks captain in 2019-20. His minus-16 rating is just a smidge better than last season's minus-19 mark, and he actually produced six more points (48) in two less games (67) in 2018-19. Heading into his age-35 season, Getzlaf still has enough tread left to make a sizable impact at the NHL level, but he's well past his prime and doesn't look to be a candidate for 60 -- or even 50 points anymore -- given his durability issues and lack of offensive firepower in Orange County.
Getzlaf posted an assist, three hits and a fighting major in Sunday's 5-4 overtime loss to the Wild. Getzlaf dropped the mitts with the Wild's Jordan Greenway in the first period. In the second, Getzlaf added the secondary helper on Danton Heinen's goal. The 34-year-old center has 42 points, 142 shots, 119 hits and 56 PIM through 67 contests this season.
Getzlaf managed an assist, three blocked shots, two hits and two PIM in Wednesday's 4-3 overtime win over the Avalanche. Getzlaf had the primary helper Sam Steel's second-period tally to put the Ducks ahead 3-2. In his last five outings, Getzlaf has three points, 10 PIM and 11 blocks. The 34-year-old center is at 41 points, 138 shots, 51 PIM, 114 hits and 66 blocks in 65 appearances this year. He's no longer an elite producer on offense, but his all-around numbers are solid despite a poor team situation with the Ducks.
Getzlaf netted a power-play goal on two shots, dished two hits and added four PIM in Friday's 3-2 win over the Penguins. Getzlaf drew a double-minor against Justin Schultz after the defenseman caught him with a high stick. He then tallied 34 seconds into the power play to put the Ducks ahead 2-1. The center reached the 40-point mark with his first goal in seven outings. He's added 131 shots, 107 hits and 47 PIM through 62 contests this year.
Getzlaf recorded a power-play assist, two hits and two PIM in Tuesday's 4-3 overtime win over the Oilers. Getzlaf had the secondary helper on Sonny Milano's game-winner in overtime. The assists snapped a four-game point drought for Getzlaf, who now has 39 points, 129 shots, 105 hits and a minus-16 rating through 61 contests. The 34-year-old center could receive a boost in production if his initial chemistry with Milano holds up throughout the rest of the year.
