Top Simon Benoit News

  • Ducks' Simon Benoit: Clears COVID-19 protocols

    Benoit exited the NHL's COVID-19 protocols and returned to practice Thursday, Elliott Teaford of The Orange County Register reports.

    Benoit will presumably be an option for Friday's matchup with Tampa Bay. The 23-year-old defender has tallied two points through 25 contests this season.

  • Ducks' Simon Benoit: Tests positive for COVID-19

    Benoit submitted a positive COVID-19 test Thursday, Elliott Teaford of The Orange County Register reports.

    Benoit will almost certainly miss multiple contests as a result of his positive COVID-19 test. Brendan Guhle was recalled from AHL San Diego on Thursday to fill in until Benoit is cleared to return.

  • Ducks' Simon Benoit: Picks up rare assist

    Benoit notched an assist, seven hits and two blocked shots in Wednesday's 4-1 win over the Kraken.

    Benoit helped out on Sam Carrick's third-period tally. The assist was just the second point in 17 games this year for Benoit. The 23-year-old defenseman should see a more regular role in the lineup in the near term with Josh Mahura (upper body) expected to miss at least a week. Jacob Larsson will push Benoit for playing time going forward, though neither is enough of a scorer to help in many fantasy formats.

  • Ducks' Simon Benoit: Not adding to offense

    Benoit has one goal in 12 games this season.

    Benoit has seen semi-regular playing time in competition with Josh Mahura for a spot on the third pairing alongside Kevin Shattenkirk. While the offense hasn't been there, Benoit has supplied 42 hits and a plus-1 rating this season. The 23-year-old blueliner shouldn't be expected to pick up the pace any time soon -- he's essentially a like-for-like replacement of Jani Hakanpaa, who the Ducks traded away last season.

  • Ducks' Simon Benoit: Summoned to Anaheim

    Benoit was recalled from AHL San Diego on Saturday.

    In four games with the Ducks this season, Benoit has averaged 14:31 of ice time and chipped in a goal and 13 hits. The team is off Saturday but hosts the Blues on Sunday, and it's unclear if Benoit will suit up for that one or serve as a healthy scratch.

  • Ducks' Simon Benoit: Dropped to AHL

    Benoit was reassigned to AHL San Diego on Friday, John Hoven of SiriusXM NHL Network Radio reports.

    Benoit has a goal and 13 hits through four NHL games this season. He was sent down to make room on the roster for Friday's backup goalie, Lukas Dostal. The 23-year-old blueliner could return before Sunday's tilt with the Blues.

  • Ducks' Simon Benoit: Scores first NHL goal

    Benoit scored a goal, doled out three hits and went plus-2 in Thursday's 4-3 overtime loss to the Sabres.

    Benoit scored his first NHL goal at 5:59 of the third period, and that was enough for the Ducks to force overtime. The undrafted 23-year-old has spent the bulk of the last two seasons with AHL San Diego, where he's not exactly known for his scoring prowess. The Quebec native will likely play on the third pairing when he's in the lineup -- he'll compete with Josh Mahura for playing time.

  • Ducks' Simon Benoit: Brought back up to big club

    Benoit was summoned from AHL San Diego on Sunday, Elliott Teaford of The Orange County Register reports.

    Benoit got a brief taste of NHL action last year, going scoreless in six games with the Ducks. The 23-year-old managed just eight points in 38 regular-season AHL contests in 2020-21, as well, suggesting he won't be moving the fantasy needle anytime soon.

  • Ducks' Simon Benoit: Back to minors

    Benoit was reassigned to AHL San Diego on Sunday, per CapFriendly.

    Benoit suited up for six of the last seven games with Anaheim, tallying 20 hits and a minus-3 rating. The 22-year-old has eight points in 35 AHL games this season but will enter the 2021-22 season still in search of his first NHL point.

  • Ducks' Simon Benoit: Set for NHL debut

    Benoit was assigned to the active roster and will make his NHL debut in Wednesday's game against the Kings.

    Benoit was an undrafted free agent out of Shawinigan in the QMJHL, as he's produced eight points in 35 AHL games this season. Benoit possesses a big 6-foot-3 frame and will handle second-pairing duties with Kevin Shattenkirk for Wednesday's contest.

  • Ducks' Simon Benoit: Added to taxi squad

    Benoit was promoted to the taxi squad Monday, CapFriendly reports.

    Benoit will make his second appearance on Anaheim's taxi squad this month. The 22-year-old defenseman has eight points in 35 AHL games this season and is still looking to make his NHL debut.

  • Ducks' Simon Benoit: Back to minors

    Benoit was assigned to AHL San Diego on Wednesday, per CapFriendly.

  • Ducks' Simon Benoit: Recalled from AHL

    Benoit was recalled from AHL San Diego to the taxi squad Tuesday, per CapFriendly.

    Benoit has yet to make his NHL debut. The Ducks are dealing with a few injuries, so the 22-year-old defenseman will add depth. Through 26 AHL appearances this year, he's posted five points and 26 PIM.
