Jackman will return to school, putting an end to his 12-year NHL career, Shane Frederick of the Mankato Free Press reports.
Jackman saw action in just two contests for Anaheim during the 2015-16 campaign for which he went minus-2 and registered four PIM. After a two-year collegiate career for Minnesota State, the winger went on to play in 483 games while logging 32 goals and 43 helpers. Selected in the second round of the 2001 NHL Draft, the 34-year-old was the definition of a journeyman and grinder who had to work relentlessly each season to prove his worth.
Jackman was traded to the Blackhawks -- along with a 2017 seventh-round pick -- on Monday in exchange for forward Corey Tropp.
Jackman, a 13-year veteran, will be an unrestricted free agent this summer but the physical winger was off the books for Anaheim anyhow, as he was waived last November after appearing in just two contests. There's nothing to look at here as it pertains to fantasy hockey.
Jackman has cleared waivers and will now report to AHL San Diego, Elliott Teaford of the Los Angeles News Group reports.
Jackman is a physical veteran with 806 PIMs over a span of 483 career NHL appearances. When he's up with the parent club, Jackman will register a point once in a blue moon but it's the grittyness for which he's best known.
Jackman was placed on waivers by the Ducks on Monday, Renaud Lavoie of TVA Sports reports.
Jackman saw action in just two contests with the Ducks, averaging just 5:44 of ice time in his contests. Assuming he passes through waivers unclaimed, it seems likely the veteran winger will be reassigned to the AHL.
Jackman (lower body) was activated from injured reserve Wednesday.Jackman skated on the fourth line during the Ducks' morning session, so it stands to reason that he'll be available to play Wednesday against the Stars. The winger, who had been out since March 1 with the injury, has seven points and 84 PIM over his 53 games this season.
Jackman (lower body) has resumed skating over the last few days, Eric Stephens of the Orange County Register reports.He won't play in Wednesday's game against the Oilers, but seems to be trending toward a return to the lineup before the final week of the regular season. Jackman will give the Ducks' fourth line some added toughness once he gets back in action.
Jackman (lower body) is expected to begin skating on his own back in Anaheim during the Ducks' upcoming five-game road trip, Lance Pugmire of the Los Angeles Times reports.Jackman was ruled out for 4-to-6 weeks after suffering his injury back on Mar. 1, and it appears that timetable remains fairly firm. With 84 PIM and 109 hits over his 53 games this season, Jackman is one of the Ducks' more prolific agitators, but he's largely a non-entity in every other fantasy category.
Coach Bruce Boudreau said he hopes that Jackman (lower body) can resume skating in a week, Eric Stephens of the Orange County Register reports.Jackman still appears in line to miss 4-to-6 weeks in total due to the injury he sustained just under two weeks ago. The Ducks are lacking in fourth-line muscle with Jackman unavailable, but the winger should be ready to contribute again over the final few games of the regular season.
Jackman is slated to miss 4-6 weeks due to a lower-body injury, Curtis Zupke of NHL.com reports.With just seven points in 53 games to date, Jackman's fantasy utility is restricted to leagues where his PIM (he has recorded 84 this season) are of assistance.

Jackman suffered a lower body injury during the first period of Sunday's game against the Stars, and he will not return to the contest.Jackman suffered the injury on his second shift, after logging just 38 seconds of ice time. With Tomas Fleischmann recently acquired by the Ducks, Jackman was already in danger of losing his spot in the lineup. Fleischmann is expected to make his Ducks debut in Tuesday's game against Arizona.
The Ducks have signed Jackman to a one-year contract extension worth $700,000, Lance Pugmire of the Los Angeles Times reports.While the news is great for Jackman personally, his fantasy value this season has still been very limited. He does, however, have 84 penalty minutes on the year, leaving him a reasonable option if you're struggling in that category.
Jackman contributed a goal and five PIM in Tuesday's loss to the Panthers.Jackman cut the Ducks' deficit to three with his score at the 14:54 mark of the second period, but the game was pretty much well in hand for the Panthers by that point. The goal was just the fifth of the season for Jackman, but the penalty minutes weren't much of a surprise for the aggressive fourth liner. He paces the Ducks with 79 PIM on the campaign.
Jackman took pregame rushes in advance of Wednesday's matchup with the Sharks, Eric Stephens of the Orange County Register reports.Jackman was activated from the injured reserve Wednesday, though it wasn't originally clear whether or not he would suit up for the New Year's Eve tilt. His participation in pregame warmups suggests he'll be available to provide the Ducks with offensive depth.
Jackman (head) was activated from injured reserve Wednesday.The activation would suggest that Jackman will be available for Wednesday's rematch with the Sharks. Jackman had been forced out of the game against San Jose prior to the Christmas break following a hit to the head, but it doesn't sound like he suffered any significant concussion symptoms. He'll be plugged back in on the Ducks' fourth line.

Jackman (head) was placed on injured reserve Sunday, Kevin Kurz of CSN Bay Area reports.With Jackman unable to resume skating after taking a hit to the head last Monday, it would seem that the winger is suffering from the effects of a concussion. He'll be viewed as out indefinitely until he receives clearance to resume practicing.
Jackman (illness) will be back in the lineup Tuesday against the Flames, Eric Stephens of the Orange County Register reports.The Ducks will get Jackman back after he missed Sunday's game due to a case of the stomach flu, but will be without center William Karlsson on account of the same ailment Tuesday night. It's probably not a fair trade off for the Ducks, but Jackman has been a key presence on the team's checking line. He's already accumulated 43 hits and 37 penalty minutes over 18 games.
Jackman is dealing with the stomach flu and will not play against the Panthers on Sunday, Curtis Zupke of NHL.com reports.The next opportunity for Jackman to take the ice will be against the Flames on Tuesday. At this point, he should be considered day-to-day moving forward.
