Ducks' Erik Gudbranson: Healthy for 2020-21
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gudbranson (upper body) will be ready for next season according to general manager Bob Murray.

Gudbranson started the year with the Penguins but was traded to Anaheim back in late October. With the Ducks, the 27-year-old logged 20:02 of ice time per game in which he notched four goals, five assists and 76 hits. Given his limited offensive upside, fantasy owners shouldn't be butting heads with each other to select Gudbranson ahead of the 2020-21 campaign.

Ducks' Erik Gudbranson: Out two more weeks
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gudbranson (upper body) is expected to miss another two weeks, Helene Elliott of the Los Angeles Times reports.

Gudbranson has already missed the last seven games since being placed on injured reserve on Feb. 9, and this news will rule him out for roughly another seven. The 6-foot-5 blueliner has four goals and nine points in 44 games with the Ducks this season.

Ducks' Erik Gudbranson: Still one week away
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gudbranson (upper body) will need at least another week before getting back into the lineup. Coach Dallas Eakins told reporters, "Gudbranson is coming along very good, he'll be evaluated here in the next few days and hopefully we'll see him on the ice in a week or so."

Gudbranson has already missed the Ducks' last four contests and will be sidelined for at least the next three based on the timeline provide by Eakins. With just nine points in 51 appearances this season, the blueliner won't offer much in terms of offensive production once cleared to play, which limits him to a mid-range fantasy option at best.

Ducks' Erik Gudbranson: Placed on IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Ducks placed Gudbranson (upper body) on injured reserve Sunday, Kyle Shohara of the Ducks' official site reports.

Gudbranson was already ruled out of Sunday's game against Buffalo and was sent back to Anaheim for re-evaluation. His placement on IR signals that the defenseman will miss at least a week, so his next chance to suit up is next Sunday against Vancouver. In the meantime, recent call-up Brendan Guhle will draw into the lineup.

Ducks' Erik Gudbranson: Won't play in Buffalo
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gudbranson (upper body) won't be in the lineup for Sunday's game against Buffalo and has been sent back home for re-evaluation, Eric Stephens of The Athletic reports.

Gundbranson left Friday's game against Toronto in the first period, and as evidenced by this news, he could be dealing with something significant. In his stead, Brendan Guhle, Korbinian Holzer and Josh Mahura are all candidates to replace Gundbranson in the lineup. Expect the team to update the 28-year-old's status ahead of Tuesday's game against St. Louis.

Ducks' Erik Gudbranson: Injured in first period Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gudbranson suffered an upper-body injury and is questionable to return to Friday's game against the Maple Leafs, Eric Stephens of The Athletic reports.

Per Stephens, Gudbranson was injured on a hit in the first period. The defenseman skated just 3:35 over four shifts prior to his exit. If he's unable to return Friday, there should be an update on his status before Sunday's game in Buffalo.

Ducks' Erik Gudbranson: Gathers shorthanded assist
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gudbranson notched a shorthanded helper, a fighting major, three shots on goal and two hits in Monday's 4-2 loss to the Sharks.

Gudbranson set up Ondrej Kase's second-period tally. Then, in the third period, Gudbranson dropped the gloves with Sharks winger Evander Kane. The busy performance gave the defenseman nine points, 93 PIM, 81 hits and 69 shots through 45 games this season between the Ducks and the Penguins.

Ducks' Erik Gudbranson: Slings helper Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gudbranson registered an assist and two shots on goal in Sunday's 5-4 shootout win over the Predators.

Gudbranson now has seven points through 38 contests. The 27-year-old has added 54 shots on goal, 86 PIM and 68 hits this season. His lack of offense will keep most fantasy owners away.

Ducks' Erik Gudbranson: Strikes quickly Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gudbranson scored a goal on three shots in Sunday's 2-1 overtime loss to the Flyers.

Gudbranson tallied just 35 seconds into the game, but the Ducks wouldn't put another goal behind Flyers netminder Brian Elliott. Gudbranson has amassed six points, 82 PIM, 44 hits and 36 blocked shots in 28 appearances since joining the Ducks in a trade from the Penguins on Oct. 25. The 27-year-old is mostly a defensive presence -- he's not consistent enough for many fantasy owners' interests.

Ducks' Erik Gudbranson: Generates assist
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gudbranson picked up an assist, two shots on goal, three hits and a plus-3 rating in Monday's 3-0 win over the Islanders.

Gudbranson set up Ondrej Kase for the final goal of the game. The 27-year-old defenseman has three points in 14 games since a late October trade from the Penguins to the Ducks. Overall, he has 35 hits, 23 blocked shots, and 27 shots on goal through 21 appearances. Gudbranson has never exceeded 13 points in a campaign, so he's safe to ignore in fantasy.

Ducks' Erik Gudbranson: Headed for West Coast
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gudbranson was acquired by the Ducks from the Penguins on Friday in exchange for Andreas Martinsen and a 2021 seventh-round pick.

After joining Pittsburgh at the deadline last year, Gudbranson is already packing his bags for a new team. The emergence of John Marino created a logjam on the Pens' blue line, which resulted in Gudbranson serving as a healthy scratch in four games this season. With Josh Manson (lower body) banged up, Gudbranson could find himself suiting up for his new club as early as Saturday's matchup with Colorado if he can get there in time.

Penguins' Erik Gudbranson: Dishes out two hits
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gudbranson registered two hits and one giveaway in 15:03 of ice time against Buffalo on Thursday.

Gudbranson spent 1:14 of his 15:03 shorthanded, so it shouldn't come as a shock that he was held without a shot. The blueliner shouldn't be counted on for offensive output, considering last year was only the second time he's reached the 10-point mark.

Penguins' Erik Gudbranson: Garners helper
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gudbranson picked up an assist in Saturday's 3-2 victory over Dallas.

Gudbranson ended an 11-game pointless streak with his tally, but is still looking for his first goal in a Penguins uniform. The blueliner was brought in at the trade deadline for his defensive capabilities and physical style of play, so fans and fantasy owners shouldn't be banking on him for offensive output.

Penguins' Erik Gudbranson: Impresses new coach
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Making his Penguins debut, Gudbranson registered a blocked shot, two hits and three shots on goal over 20:19 of ice time in Friday's 4-3 overtime loss to the Sabres.

While the rugged defenseman admitted to being nervous for his introductory contest, he ended up drawing praise from head coach Mike Sullivan. "I thought he played really well," Sullivan said in a report by the Pittsburgh-Post Gazette. "He moved the puck. He was physical. You could see the edge he plays with. I thought he had a strong game." As part of the 2018-19 campaign, Gudbranson stacked two goals and six assists against a minus-27 rating with the Canucks prior to joining the Pens at the trade deadline.

Penguins' Erik Gudbranson: Arrives in Steel City
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gudbranson (immigration issues) joined the Penguins for Wednesday's practice and should be available against Buffalo on Friday.

Gudbranson's arrival comes just in time for Pittsburgh, as the club could be facing the loss of Chad Ruhwedel (upper body), who was injured in Tuesday's clash with Columbus. The 26-year-old Gudbranson figures to take on big minutes with his new club and will likely log more than his 17:59 season average with Vancouver.

Penguins' Erik Gudbranson: Immigration issues delay debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gudbranson will not be ready to play Tuesday versus Columbus due to immigration issues, Jason Mackey of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

Thought to be ready to provide immediate reinforcement on the blue line, Gudbranson's immigration issues will prevent him from facing the Blue Jackets in Columbus on Tuesday, leaving the Penguins very thin on the back end. Pittsburgh's newest defenseman will hope to have his affairs in order in time to dress Friday in Buffalo.

Penguins' Erik Gudbranson: Brought in via trade
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gudbranson was acquired by the Penguins from the Canucks on Monday in exchange for Tanner Pearson, Bob McKenzie of TSN reports.

Gudbranson will likely need to slot into the lineup for the Penguins right away against the Blue Jackets on Tuesday, as the club will be without Brian Dumoulin (concussion) or Kris Letang (upper body). Once the Pens get fully fit, Gudbranson could struggle for minutes on the blue line, especially come playoffs if Olli Maatta (shoulder) is given the green light.

Canucks' Erik Gudbranson: Looking to end drought
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gudbranson will look to end his 12-game point drought against his former team, the Panthers, on Sunday.

Gudbranson isn't known for his offense; however, his eight points are the most he's posted as a Canuck, and he is on pace to top his career-best 13 points. Over the past two outings, he has a combined eights hits, but also a minus-7 rating with no PIM.

Canucks' Erik Gudbranson: Playing Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gudbranson (upper body) will be in the lineup against the Oilers on Sunday, Ben Kuzma of The Vancouver Province reports.

Gudbranson slides back into the lineup following a two-game absence. The blueliner is currently bogged down in a 12-game goal drought, during which he managed a lone assist. Given his lack of offensive talent, the Ottawa native won't offer much in terms of fantasy value.

Canucks' Erik Gudbranson: Game-time call
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gudbranson (upper body) will be a game-time decision ahead of Sunday's clash with Edmonton, Kevin Woodley of reports.

Gudbranson was expected to be in the lineup versus the Flyers on Saturday, but missed the game due to his upper-body issue. Whether the defender will play Sunday's matchup with the Oilers won't be determined until warm-ups, however, if he does sit out, Michael Del Zotto or Alex Biega figures to take his spot on the blue line.
