Ducks' Josh Manson: Adds assist
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manson had an assist, three blocked shots and two hits in Wednesday's 4-2 loss to the Blues.

Manson's assist came on Adam Henrique's goal from Feb. 11, before the game was rescheduled due to Jay Bouwmeester's cardiac episode. The helper will count as Manson's ninth point in 50 appearances this year. He's added 113 hits, 65 blocks and 64 shots on net.

Ducks' Josh Manson: Physical presence in return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manson (upper body) posted five hits, two blocked shots, two shots on net and two PIM in Sunday's 5-4 overtime loss to the Wild.

Manson skated 21:55 in his return from a two-game absence with the injury. The 28-year-old defenseman has eight points, 110 hits, 59 blocks and 37 PIM in 48 contests this year. Expect Manson to see big minutes with the Ducks still missing three of their top four blueliners.

Ducks' Josh Manson: Returning Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manson (upper body) will suit up for Sunday's contest against the Wild, Eric Stephens of The Athletic reports.

Manson missed two games with the upper-body injury he suffered against Chicago on March 3. The 28-year-old blueliner will return to his top-pair role where he's scored eight points in 47 contests while averaging 20:33 of ice time.

Ducks' Josh Manson: Remains out Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manson (upper body) is not expected to play in Friday's game against the Maple Leafs.

Manson will miss a second straight game with the injury. His absence will keep Jani Hakanpaa in the lineup on the third pairing. Manson's next chance to return is Sunday against the Wild.

Ducks' Josh Manson: Sidelined for Wednesday's game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manson (upper body) will not suit up for Wednesday's game against the Avalanche.

Manson was injured in the first period of Tuesday's game in Chicago, joining a long list of Ducks defensemen on the shelf. In his stead Wednesday, Jani Hakanpaa will make his NHL debut. Manson's next chance to return is Friday against the Maple Leafs.

Ducks' Josh Manson: Suffers upper-body injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manson (upper body) is doubtful to return to Tuesday's game against the Blackhawks.

Manson played just 6:18 in the contest before suffering the injury. If he can't return, the list of injured Ducks' defensemen will grow to four, as Cam Fowler (lower body), Erik Gudbranson (upper body) and Hampus Lindholm (upper body) are also out. Manson has stepped up in the absence of the other three, but the blue line is wearing thin. Expect an update on his condition prior to Wednesday's game in Colorado.

Ducks' Josh Manson: Helpers in consecutive outings
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manson notched an assist and two hits in Friday's 3-2 win over the Penguins.

Manson has become a de facto leader on the Ducks' blue line with three regulars out of the lineup due to injury. He now has eight points, 60 shots, 105 hits and 54 blocked shots through 45 contests. Manson had 37 points in 80 games in 2017-18, but he dropped off badly last year and hasn't returned to form this season, either.

Ducks' Josh Manson: Ends 10-game point drought
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manson registered an assist, three shots on net, three hits and three blocked shots in Tuesday's 4-3 overtime win over the Oilers.

Manson ended up playing 26:02, picking up extra time after Hampus Lindholm left with an upper-body injury. Manson put the time to good use, earning an assist to snap a 10-game drought. The 28-year-old blueliner has been limited to seven points in 44 contests this season. He's added 103 hits, 53 blocks, 59 shots and a minus-7 rating.

Ducks' Josh Manson: Notches helper in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manson posted an assist and two blocked shots in Saturday's 3-1 win over the Kings.

Manson snapped a four-game drought with the helper. The 28-year-old has just six points to go with 76 hits, 39 blocked shots and 25 PIM through 33 games. He's on pace for a career-worst year offensively, and the Ducks' anemic team offense isn't likely to help Manson improve his performance.

Ducks' Josh Manson: Unlikely offensive catalyst
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manson tallied a goal and an assist with four shots and a plus-3 rating Thursday in a 4-2 win over Nashville. He also delivered a pair of hits.

That performance certainly came out of nowhere. Manson had just three points all season - none since late October - and had yet to score a goal before opening the scoring midway through the first period. He also drew a helper on Derek Grant's shorthanded goal in the third and his plus-3 rating matched his season high. Manson broke out in 2017-18 with seven goals and 37 points, but he's put up just three goals and 19 points in 101 games since then.

Ducks' Josh Manson: Achieves activation
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Ducks activated Manson off injured reserve ahead of Tuesday's game against Minnesota, per the NHL's official media site.

This news confirms that Manson will re-join the lineup against Minnesota. He's been out since Oct. 26 with the knee issue and was already classified as a game-time decision Tuesday. The 28-year-old posted three assists, 15 PIM and 28 hits over 11 games preceding his injury.

Ducks' Josh Manson: Game-time call vs. Wild
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manson (knee) will be a game-time decision for Tuesday's matchup against the Wild, Elliott Teaford of The Orange County Register reports.

Manson hasn't played since Oct. 24, as he's tended to a sprained MCL. The 28-year-old will need to be activated from IR before suiting up, but he's trending in the right direction least. The final verdict on his status will be revealed when the team takes warmups at 7:30 p.m. ET.

Ducks' Josh Manson: Nearing return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manson (knee) could fully participate in practice later this week, Elliott Teaford of The Orange County Register reports.

Manson has not played since Oct. 24 but it sounds like he could be returning in the near future. He was originally given a 5-10 week timetable and a return next week would put him right around the seven-week span. Once he returns, he'll get back on Anaheim's top defensive pair.

Ducks' Josh Manson: Will miss 5-10 weeks
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manson has a sprained knee and will sit out 5-10 weeks, Helene Elliott of the Los Angeles Times reports.

The current timeline puts his earliest return in December, though he could have to wait until the calendar flips to 2020. Manson was off to a respectable start with three points, 28 hits and 15 blocked shots through 11 games. Erik Gudbranson and Korbinian Holzer are both expected to work on the right side in his stead.

Ducks' Josh Manson: Lands on IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manson (lower body) was placed on injured reserve Saturday, per the NHL's official media site.

Manson was already ruled out for this weekend's back-to-back games, and his placement on injured reserve rules him out Tuesday against the Jets as well. The Ducks just acquired Erik Gudbranson via trade from the Penguins, and he figures to remain in the lineup as long as Manson is on the mend. He'll be eligible to return Nov. 1 against the Canucks.

Ducks' Josh Manson: Set to miss next two games
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manson (lower body) will be sidelined for Anaheim's next two games versus Colorado and Vegas on Saturday and Sunday, respectively.

Manson will be further evaluated after the club returns to Anaheim following its two road contests, but the fact that the organization made the move to bring in Erik Gudbranson to bolster the blue line doesn't instill a lot of confidence for a short-term absence. Through the first 11 games of the season, Manson is still searching for his first goal, but has managed three helpers, 13 shots and 28 hits. If Gudbranson isn't available to immediately jump into the lineup then Michael Del Zotto figures to take Manson's spot.

Ducks' Josh Manson: Sporting crutches
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manson (lower body) was seen on crutches following Thursday's loss to Dallas, Eric Stephens of The Athletic reports.

Manson left the game in the first period when he got his leg caught in an awkward position, and had to be helped off the ice, unable to put any weight on his left leg. The team didn't provide further updates on the injury postgame, but the fact that the defenseman is on crutches suggests a serious injury could be in play. Expect the team to have an update on the injury prior to Saturday's road clash with Colorado.

Ducks' Josh Manson: Under evaluation
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manson (lower body) left Thursday's game against the Stars and is undergoing further evaluation, Elliott Teaford of The Orange County Register reports.

Manson looked to suffer a significant injury in the first period, when he tried to check Jason Dickinson. He was immediately assisted off the ice and couldn't put any weight on his left leg. The Ducks are extremely thin on the back end now, rolling with five defensemen for the time being.

Ducks' Josh Manson: Offers assist in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manson recorded an assist, two shots on goal and three blocked shots in Sunday's 2-1 loss to the Flames.

Manson now has three points, a plus-5 rating and seven PIM in his last three contests. That's all his offense this season, and he's added 25 hits and 10 shots on goal in nine appearances. The 28-year-old defenseman skates on the top pairing, but he's typically a bit more defensively oriented.

Ducks' Josh Manson: Cracks goose egg with two helpers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manson registered two assists, two hits, two shots and a plus-3 rating in Wednesday's 5-2 win over the Sabres.

Manson entered the contest without a point in six games, but he assisted the Ducks' first and last goals to get on the scoresheet for the first time. The defenseman has provided 22 hits and nine blocked shots this year, but fantasy owners will want to see him add more offense. Manson had 16 points in 74 outings last year, while his breakout 37-point effort came in 2017-18.
