Ducks' Sam Steel: Buries equalizer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Steel scored a goal in Wednesday's 3-2 win over the Kings.

Steel tallied at 16:35 of the second period, tying the game at 2-2. The 23-year-old center has scored in two of his last three outings. The Alberta native is up to six goals, 12 points, 39 shots on net and 39 hits through 38 appearances. His lack of scoring production has kept him stuck in the bottom six for much of the last two months.

Ducks' Sam Steel: Ends drought with goal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Steel scored a goal on three shots in Saturday's 5-1 loss to the Golden Knights.

Steel hadn't scored in four games since returning from a lower-body injury, but he put that drought to rest. He tallied at 2:00 of the third period to spoil Robin Lehner's shutout bid. The 23-year-old Steel has 11 points, 38 shots on net, 39 hits and a minus-4 rating through 36 contests. Ryan Getzlaf (upper body) left Saturday's game early, so top-six minutes could be in Steel's future if Getzlaf can't suit up Monday versus the Kings.

Ducks' Sam Steel: Lifted from IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Steel (lower body) was activated from injured reserve Wednesday, per CapFriendly.

Steel will be eligible to play in Wednesday's game versus the Sharks, although it's unclear if he'll immediately draw into the lineup. He's already missed seven contests with the injury. In a corresponding move, Andrew Agozzino was assigned to the taxi squad. Should Steel play Wednesday, he'd likely see middle-six minutes.

Ducks' Sam Steel: Battling lower-body injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Steel (lower body) didn't participate in Monday's practice.

Steel has missed three games, and he's not expected to be ready for Tuesday's road game versus the Sharks. The 23-year-old center put up 10 points through 31 games with the big club this season. Until he and Ryan Getzlaf (upper body) return, Isac Lundestrom and Adam Henrique should stay in the top six.

Ducks' Sam Steel: Surfaces on injured reserve
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Steel (undisclosed) was placed on injured reserve Thursday, per CapFriendly.

It's unclear when Steel suffered the injury, but he didn't play Monday versus the Avalanche. He won't be eligible to return until Tuesday versus the Sharks at the earliest.

Ducks' Sam Steel: Back on active roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Steel was promoted to the active roster Tuesday, per CapFriendly.

Steel didn't play Monday against the Avalanche. The Ducks don't play again until Friday versus the Coyotes. Steel has 10 points in 31 contests this year.

Ducks' Sam Steel: Dropped to taxi squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Steel was reassigned to the taxi squad Monday, CapFriendly reports.

Steel was a healthy scratch for Monday's game against Colorado. The 23-year-old has 10 points in 31 games this season and will likely be back in the lineup soon.

March 27, 2021 03:12 PM
Ducks' Sam Steel: Opens scoring Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Steel scored a goal on a team-high five shots in Friday's 4-1 win over the Blues.

Steel tallied at 2:23 of the second period, and the Ducks never trailed in the game. The 23-year-old center hasn't taken a step forward on offense this year -- he has just four goals and 10 points in 30 appearances. He's mostly seen bottom-six usage in recent games, so Steel doesn't make for a reliable fantasy option.

Ducks' Sam Steel: Ascends to active roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Steel was brought up from the taxi squad to the active roster ahead of Tuesday's game against the Avalanche, per CapFriendly.

With nine points in 27 games this season, it's safe to assume Steel will assume his regular bottom-six role in Denver on Tuesday. That said, Steel sat out Saturday's game against the Sharks while on the taxi squad, so interested parties should confirm his place in the lineup before rolling with him for fantasy purposes.

March 14, 2021 12:16 PM
Ducks' Sam Steel: Slides to taxi squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Steel was sent to the taxi squad Saturday, per CapFriendly.

Steel had the Ducks' lone goal in Wednesday's game versus the Kings; the only goal they've scored as a team in two contests. Nonetheless, he'll be out of Saturday's game against the Sharks.

March 11, 2021 01:16 AM
Ducks' Sam Steel: Nets lone goal in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Steel scored a goal in Wednesday's 5-1 loss to the Kings.

Steel responded just 19 seconds after Anze Kopitar gave the Kings a 2-0 lead. The Ducks didn't strike again after Steel's tally. The 23-year-old center has three goals, six assists, 21 shots on net and 27 hits through 26 games, but he played only 9:54 in Wednesday's game. He'd need to be producing more and in a top-six role to be considered in most fantasy formats.

Ducks' Sam Steel: Picks up helper
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Steel notched an assist and went plus-2 in Saturday's 5-4 overtime win over the Avalanche.

Steel won a faceoff back to Rickard Rakell, who struck for the opening tally at 5:10 of the first period. Steel was expected to be a rotational option with the Ducks using seven defensemen Saturday, but he still saw 13:19 of ice time after Max Jones left the contest with an upper-body injury. Steel has eight points, 20 shots on net and 26 hits through 24 appearances, but it appears a resurgent Adam Henrique has reclaimed the second-line center job.

Ducks' Sam Steel: Nabs assist Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Steel posted an assist and two hits in Saturday's 3-2 overtime loss to the Golden Knights.

Steel picked up the secondary helper on Adam Henrique's third-period tally, which forced overtime. The 23-year-old Steel hasn't taken the expected step forward on offense yet with just seven points in 20 games this year. He's added 19 shots on net and 23 hits while seeing second-line usage.

Ducks' Sam Steel: Registers assist in shootout loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Steel posted an assist, three shots on goal and three hits in Wednesday's 4-3 shootout loss to the Coyotes.

Steel set up Josh Mahura for the Ducks' second goal of the game. Steel worked with Trevor Zegras and Jakob Silfverberg on the second line. Steel and Zegras are two of the Ducks' top prospects, so getting them to develop some chemistry while also drawing easier assignments is likely a priority in 2020-21. The 23-year-old Steel has six points, 19 shots on net, 21 hits and a minus-2 rating in 19 appearances.

February 19, 2021 09:40 AM
Ducks' Sam Steel: Nets lone goal in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Steel scored a goal on two shots in Thursday's 3-1 loss to the Wild.

Steel got the Ducks on the board at the 12-minute mark of the second period. The center has scored in consecutive games since he was a healthy scratch. The 23-year-old has five points, 16 shots on net, 16 hits and a minus-2 rating in 16 appearances. Steel will continue to get looks in the middle six, but his lack of offense so far makes him less attractive in the fantasy game.

Ducks' Sam Steel: Gets in goal column Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Steel netted a goal on three shots and added two hits in Monday's 3-2 loss to the Sharks.

Steel was a healthy scratch for Thursday's game against the Golden Knights, as his play hasn't been up to expectation this year. He responded well, as he scored on his first shift of Monday's game, which counts as his first goal of the year. The 23-year-old center has been limited to four points, 14 shots on net, 16 hits and a minus-2 rating in 15 outings this season.

Ducks' Sam Steel: Recalled from taxi squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Steel was promoted to the active roster and will play Monday against San Jose, CBS Sports reports.

Steel was sent to the taxi squad on Feb. 11 and missed a game for the first time this season. The 23-year-old has just three assists and a minus-3 rating through 14 games on the year. He'll get back into the lineup for Monday's game against the Sharks.

February 11, 2021 09:44 PM
Ducks' Sam Steel: Shifts to taxi squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Ducks placed Steel on the taxi squad Thursday, Elliott Teaford of The Orange County Register reports.

This comes as quite a surprise, especially considering Steel had played all 14 games for the Ducks to this point. The 23-year-old hasn't been too effective this season, collecting just three assists and 11 shots to this point. He was replaced by Max Jones on the active roster and in the lineup for Thursday's clash with Vegas.

Ducks' Sam Steel: Breaks slump with assist
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Steel notched an assist in Tuesday's 3-1 win over the Kings.

Steel entered Tuesday ice cold with no points and a minus-3 rating in his last eight games. Head coach Dallas Eakins tried Steel between Jakob Silfverberg and Danton Heinen, and it worked, as Steel earned the secondary helper on Heinen's goal. Through 11 contests, the 22-year-old Steel has three helpers, 10 shots on net, 11 hits and six PIM. Getting onto a scoring line should help his production, but Steel will need to be more consistent to avoid a demotion to the bottom six.

Ducks' Sam Steel: Manages helper
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Steel provided an assist and won eight of 15 faceoffs in Saturday's 2-1 overtime loss to the Golden Knights.

Steel's linemate Maxime Comtois has three goals this year, and it's been Steel with assists on two of them. The 22-year-old Steel also got the first shift in overtime, but he lost the draw to winger Max Pacioretty, who scored seven seconds later. The rebuilding Ducks will have unlucky games like this one, but Steel is making an impact with a helper in each of the first two contests. As long as his line is successful, more playing time should open up.
