Fowler collected two helpers in Friday's 5-2 win over the Kings.
Fowler had the worst non-lockout season of his career, finishing with five goals and 18 assists in 59 games this year after missing two months with a face injury. It was a down year for the Ducks as a whole, and Fowler was no exception. He'll be looking to return to his usual 30-plus points next year.
Fowler (undisclosed) will play in Friday's game versus the Flames.
Fowler was helped off the ice in Tuesday's win versus the Canucks, but it appears that won't be a lingering issue. The 27-year-old blueliner will return to his role logging major minutes on the blue line and power play. He has 21 points through 55 games, with six of those coming with the man advantage.
Fowler had to be helped off the ice late in Tuesday's 5-4 win over Vancouver, Ben Kuzma of the Vancouver Province and Sun reports.
Fowler was involved in a collision with Canucks forward Tanner Pearson, forcing the blueliner to exit a little early after posting a shot and a plus-1 rating in 19:32 of ice time. Expect some clarity on Fowler's status prior to Anaheim's next game Friday in Calgary.
Fowler scored his fifth goal of the year in Saturday's 4-3 shootout loss to the Kings.
The goal gives Fowler five points in his last five contests, and 21 points in 54 appearances this season. It's his lowest total since posting 11 points in the lockout-shortened 2012-13 campaign, but he's also going to finish the year with his lowest count in games played for a non-lockout season.
Fowler recorded a pair of assists -- one coming on a power play -- in Friday's 4-3 overtime win against the Sharks.
The two assists give Fowler 20 points in 53 games, with his second coming on Jakob Silfverberg's overtime winner. The 27-year-old blueliner also finished Friday's game tied for the team lead with five blocks.
Fowler registered an assist and two blocked shots in Friday's 8-2 win over the Canadiens. He's now recorded 265 career points (57 goals, 208 assists) to set Anaheim's scoring record among defensemen.
The helper extended Fowler's point streak to four games. The 28-year-old defender has had a rough season with 16 points (four goals, 12 assists) and a minus-13 rating in 46 appearances. The recent hot stretch justifies him being considered as a DFS option for Sunday's match with the Kings, who have given up 3.15 goals per game this season.
Fowler scored a power-play goal Sunday against the Avs, one that held up as the game-winner.
Despite Sunday's success, Fowler's output for the season is significantly lower, with just four goals and 13 total points. He has missed time due to injury, but even accounting for that he's on a much slower scoring pace than his customary 30-plus point output.
Fowler has just one assist and a minus-16 rating since returning from a face injury on Jan. 6.
In that span, Fowler has added eight hits, 18 blocked shots and 25 shots on goal. He's still receiving 2:21 per game on the power play, so the opportunity is there, but the Ducks' moribund offense (2.16 goals per game, last in the league) is making it difficult to roster almost all of their players in fantasy.
Fowler was a minus-2 in Sunday's 4-0 loss to the Oilers.
Fowler was playing his first game since Nov. 12 due to a face injury. The 27-year-old was a bit rusty, which is totally understandable considering he had missed Anaheim's last 23 games. Fowler's owners shouldn't get too caught up in this fruitless performance, as he is too good to be kept down for long. He finished Sunday's contest with 22:01 of ice time, including 3:59 on the power play. Stay patient.
Fowler (face) has been taken off injured reserve ahead of Sunday's game against Edmonton, Eric Stephens of The Athletic reports.
This just about secures Fowler's status for Sunday's game. Assuming he suits up, it will be his first appearance since Nov. 12 when he took a puck to the face. He's expected to slot back into a top-four defensive role and should be entered into fantasy lineups right off the bat.
Fowler (face) skated on a pairing with John Manson during Saturday's practice and could play Sunday versus the Oilers, Elliott Teaford of the OC Register reports.
Fowler wore a full shield to protect his face injury. He'll need to be activated from injured reserve before re-entering the lineup. The Ducks could certainly use Fowler's offensive abilities on the blue line, as they've scored just 11 goals over the last seven games -- all losses.
Fowler (face) has begun skating on his own in anticipation of his mid-January return to action, Elliotte Teaford of The Orange County Register reports.
Fowler has been sidelined since Nov. 12 when he suffered facial fractures caused by being hit in the face with a puck. The blueliner would appear to be on track for his initial return date, barring any setbacks. While Josh Mahura would figure to be the inside candidate to get bumped from the lineup once Fowler is cleared to play, Jake Dotchin or Jacob Larsson could also face the chopping block.
The Ducks are hopeful Fowler (face) will be ready to return in mid-January.
Fowler is scheduled to resume working out this weekend, and if that goes well, he'll be able to resume skating approximately 7-to-10 days later. The 26-year-old blueliner has a long recovery ahead of him, but the Ducks appear to be pleased with the result of his surgery and how his rehab has progressed thus far. Anaheim should release another update on Fowler's status once he's officially cleared for on-ice activities.
Fowler suffered a complex facial fracture involving his orbital bone, cheekbone, and upper jaw bone after being hit in the face with a puck on Monday. He will have surgery Friday, after which an announcement will be made about the expected length of his absence.
In short, Fowler has a broken face, and it doesn't sound good. The 26-year-old was just placed on injured reserve, and based on this news it seems like he might be there for a while. Fowler had 10 points in 19 games before his injury, and was playing over 24 minutes a night. Though the Ducks have experience getting by without the Canadian defenseman (he missed 15 games last year), it will be hard to replace him with the reserves they have in place.
Fowler (face) was placed on injured reserve Wednesday, Eric Stephens of The Athletic reports.
Fowler took a puck to the face in Tuesday's game and was forced to depart with 3:02 remaining in the third period. While there's been no official word yet on the severity of his injury, the 26-year-old finds himself on IR. Fowler can return seven days from Wednesday's date, making him eligible to play next Wednesday against Vancouver.
Fowler left Tuesday night's game against the Predators with 3:02 remaining in the third period after a deflected puck struck him in the face, Dan Arritt of NHL.com reports.
Fowler still managed to skate for 23:34 in the contest, but the fluke play -- originating from a Craig Smith slap shot -- left him bloodied, and the defenseman understandably wasn't available for the overtime frame. Consider him day-to-day ahead of Wednesday's road game against the Golden Knights.
Fowler scored three goals -- including the game-winner -- in a 3-2 overtime win over Columbus on Sunday.
These were Fowler's first three goals of the season, bringing him to nine points in 15 games. He was extraordinary Sunday and will look to build off his performance Tuesday when the Ducks take on a struggling Kings squad that recently fired their head coach, John Stevens.
Fowler went minus-2 in Saturday's 5-3 road loss to the Stars, though he did record a career-high nine blocked shots.
Fowler may have missed the scoresheet, but his jaw-dropping blocked shot total really spun the dial in terms of fantasy scoring. In fact, he may have outscored certain players with single goal or assist outputs in select DFS contests -- it's just a shame that his fearless performance was expended in such a tough loss. Fowler and Co. will face the Blues in St. Louis on Sunday.
Fowler assisted the game-winner Saturday in a 1-0 win over Arizona.
Fowler had a fantastic breakaway pass to rookie Maxime Comtois that resulted in a 1-0 victory for the Ducks. Fowler had an impressive 32 points (eight goals, 24 assists) in 67 games in 2017-18, and offered some key offensive production on a team that needed it Saturday.
Fowler finished a minus-1 and played just under 22 minutes in Anaheim's 4-1 loss to San Jose on Tuesday.
This was Fowler's first game since suffering a shoulder injury at the end of the 2017-18 regular season. The 26-year-old defenseman is coming off a 32-point season and figures to be the Ducks' leader in ice time once again in 2018-19. Fowler looked solid in this game and appears poised for another solid season, so long as he remains healthy.
