Ducks' Rickard Rakell: Struggles to find twine
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rakell registered 18 goals and 43 points in the 2018-19 season.

Rakell was viewed as a promising goal scorer after eclipsing the 30-goal mark in back-to-back seasons. The 25-year-old's game fell off badly this season, though. A big part of the free fall was his struggles at even strength, as his point total dropped from 69 last season to 43 this campaign, but his man-advantage total fell just six points.

Ducks' Rickard Rakell: Sends 25th helper
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rakell delivered an assist and three shots in Friday's 5-2 win over the Kings.

Rakell ended the year at 43 points in 69 games, his lowest output since 2015-16. He also had 194 shots, and 13 of his points came with a man advantage. Fantasy owners expecting a repeat of his 69-point campaign from a year ago were disappointed, but he maintained some viability in fantasy formats.

Ducks' Rickard Rakell: Collects apple
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rakell recorded an assist, four shots and two hits in Wednesday's 3-1 win over the Flames.

Rakell is up to 42 points (18 goals, 24 helpers) in 68 games this season, as well as 191 shots on goal. Over his last 10 appearances, he has seven goals and four assists, storming out of a slump that saw him post just six points in 21 games in the first two months of 2019.

Ducks' Rickard Rakell: Continues blazing hot streak
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rakell posted a hat trick with six shots on goal in a 5-1 victory against the Oilers on Saturday.

The 25-year-old didn't score Friday, snapping a modest three-game goal streak, but he got right back in the goal column in a big way Saturday. He has seven goals and eight points in the last five games. For some, this is going to be too little, too late because Rakell was sitting on just 10 goals a week ago after posting 30-goal campaigns in each of the last two seasons. But if he continues this hot streak into next week, Rakell can record his fourth straight 20-goal season. He has 18 goals and 41 points with a minus-15 rating in 67 games during 2018-19.

Ducks' Rickard Rakell: Goal streak at three games
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rakell scored a power-play goal for the third straight game in Tuesday's 5-4 win over the Canucks.

Rakell added five shots, two hits and two blocked shots in the contest. For the season, he has 15 goals and 38 points in 65 contests, with 13 of those points coming with the man advantage. He's posted 12 points over 14 games in March.

Ducks' Rickard Rakell: Tickles twine on power play
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rakell scored a power-play goal on two shots in Saturday's 4-3 shootout loss to the Kings.

It's not the three-point night he had Friday versus the Sharks, but it gives Rakell 11 points in 13 March games. For the season, Rakell has 14 goals and 23 helpers over 64 games, although that comes with an unsightly minus-16 rating. His hot final month of the season gives Rakell a chance for 40 points for a fourth straight year if he can keep up the pace.

Ducks' Rickard Rakell: Big night sinks Sharks
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rakell finished with two goals and an assist in Friday's 4-3 overtime win versus the Sharks.

Before Friday, Rakell had gone 35 games without a multi-point outing. His 12th goal of the campaign opened the scoring, and he would add another marker -- this one coming on the power play -- late in the final period. Finally, Rakell's third point of the night came in overtime, with the 25-year-old drawing the primary assist on Jakob Silfverberg's game-winner. The three-point night gives him 36 in 63 games this season.

Ducks' Rickard Rakell: Hits 20-helper mark
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rakell provided an assist in Tuesday's 3-2 win over the Predators.

It's the fourth time in five full seasons the winger has dished out 20 or more helpers. Rakell has 31 points and a minus-18 rating in 58 games this season, which has him on pace for his worst year since 2014-15.

Ducks' Rickard Rakell: Snaps 14-game goal drought
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rakell scored in the third period of Friday's 8-2 win over the Canadiens.

We can take his goal-scoring stick off the side of the milk carton, because it's been found, as the forward has goals in consecutive games. Rakell has four points in his last four games, and the tally gave him 30 points (11 goals, 19 assists) in 56 games this season. It's below what's become expected of him, but the streak he's on may make him a good DFS play for Sunday's game versus the Kings.

Ducks' Rickard Rakell: Still lacking goals
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rakell gathered one assist in a 3-1 win over the Coyotes on Tuesday.

Rakell now has assists in consecutive games, but his goal drought stretched to 14 contests. It appeared he had scored an empty-net goal in this contest before Coyotes head coach Rick Tocchet successfully challenged that center Adam Henrique was offside on the play. Rakell has 28 points in 54 games, a significant drop from the 69 points he accumulated last season.

Ducks' Rickard Rakell: Ejected versus Blackhawks
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rakell was given 15 PIM in a 4-3 loss to the Blackhawks on Wednesday.

In the first minute of the second period, Rakell boarded Drake Caggiula, which warranted the ejection. Rakell's bad February (one goal and one helper in 13 games) may end on an even worse note, as he could be up for supplemental discipline for the hit.

Ducks' Rickard Rakell: Shooting but not scoring
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rakell has 28 shots in his last 11 games.

Over that span, the versatile forward has just a goal and assist to show for the effort. The owner of back-to-back 30-goal seasons, it appears Rakell will likely fall far short of that mark this season. Between the Ducks' league-worst offense (2.2 goals per game) and his 7.5 percent dip in shooting percentage year over year, it's been a campaign to forget for the Swede.

Ducks' Rickard Rakell: Finds scoresheet in landmark win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rakell scored a goal in Thursday's 3-0 win over the Wild.

Rakell's tally brings the 25-year-old winger to eight goals and 24 points in 35 games this season. He's got points in four straight contests. The goal helped snap the Ducks' 12-game losing streak, but Rakell must continue elevating his game and producing points -- specifically, goals -- as the Swede's shooting percentage (8.0) is a career worst.

Ducks' Rickard Rakell: Plenty of rink run in return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rakell (ankle) returned from a 13-game absence Wednesday, skating to a minus-2 rating with two empty shots on goal in a 2-1 overtime loss to the Senators. He was on the ice for 19:25.

While Rakell missed the scoresheet and was on the ice for both Ottawa goals, fantasy owners depending on the Swede can glean confidence from the fact that he received more ice time than usual. He'll look to get back on track offensively in Friday's home game against the Penguins.

Ducks' Rickard Rakell: Will play Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rakell (ankle) is in the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Senators, Eric Stephens of The Athletic reports.

Rakell seemed like a good bet to give it a go despite being a game-time decision and that is indeed the case. He will slot in on the top line alongside Ryan Getzlaf and Daniel Sprong and will presumably take a spot on the top power-play unit as well. Rakell has started the season off strong with 20 points in 30 games, though he's due for an increased scoring rate moving forward after converting just 5.7 percent of his shots into goals -- well below his career mark.

Ducks' Rickard Rakell: Game-time call
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rakell (ankle) will be a game-time decision for Wednesday's matchup with the Senators.

Rakell's activation off injured reserve seemed to suggest he would definitely return to action against Ottawa, but it appears as though the Ducks will wait to see how he feels after pregame warmups before confirming his availability. Assuming he's given the green light, the 25-year-old Swede will return to a major role Wednesday, skating on Anaheim's first line and top power-play unit against the Senators.

Ducks' Rickard Rakell: Ready to rock
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Ducks activated Rakell (ankle) off injured reserve Wednesday, Elliott Teaford of The Orange County Register reports.

Rakell has been sidelined since Dec. 5 due to an ankle injury, but he was a full participant in Saturday's practice, which was the first indication that he was likely on the verge of rejoining the lineup. The 25-year-old Swede is expected to return to a prominent role Wednesday, skating on the Ducks' first line and top power-play unit against the Senators.

Ducks' Rickard Rakell: Still out Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rakell (ankle) was not on the ice for warmups prior to Sunday's game against Edmonton, Eric Stephens of The Athletic reports.

It looked like Rakell was ready to return Sunday, but clearly he's not back to full health just yet. The 25-year-old Swede has a good chance of suiting up for Wednesday's game against Ottawa.

Ducks' Rickard Rakell: Spotted at practice Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rakell (ankle) was on the ice for practice Saturday morning, Elliott Teaford of the Orange County Register reports.

Anaheim's prized winger is making strides in his recovery, with Sunday's home game against the Oilers presenting Rakell with his next chance to play. For now, he remains on injured reserve along with four other Ducks in the raft.

Ducks' Rickard Rakell: Progressing toward return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rakell (ankle) is drawing close to a return, Elliott Teaford of the Orange County Register reports.

Teaford adds that Rakell has been using the slide board, which is a piece of training equipment designed to improve lower-body balance and power. The prolific scoring winger hasn't played since Dec. 5. and he remains on injured reserve, but the progress is clear.
