Ducks' Patrick Eaves: Dealing with muscle weakness again
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Eaves is dealing with the same type of muscle weakness issues that plagued him last season, Eric Stephens of The Athletic reports.

This news could perpetuate the notion that Eaves may retire after being afflicted with a laundry list of injuries over the last two seasons. The Alberta native was assigned to AHL San Diego on Feb. 20 but reportedly hasn't played in a while. Eaves has played in just seven NHL games this season, with his last game action taking place Feb. 4.

Ducks' Patrick Eaves: Assigned to AHL affiliate
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Ducks assigned Eaves to AHL San Diego on Wednesday, Eric Stephens of The Athletic reports.

Eaves has only appeared in nine NHL contests over the past two seasons due to a laundry list of injuries and illnesses, and now that he's been sent to the minors, it appears as though his professional playing career may be nearing its end. It remains to be seen if the 2003 first-round pick will report to San Diego, but if he declines to do so, he may simply retire.

Patrick Eaves: Hits waivers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Eaves was placed on waivers by the Ducks on Tuesday, Elliotte Friedman of Sportsnet reports.

Eaves has suited up in just nine games over the past two years for the Ducks and has been hampered by an illness among other injuries. Assuming he goes unclaimed, the 34-year-old forward will be assigned to AHL San Diego.

Ducks' Patrick Eaves: Still not back
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Eaves (illness) remains on injured reserve and isn't in Anaheim's lineup Sunday against the Capitals.

Eaves should be removed from IR once he's ready to return to game action. His next chance to suit up comes Tuesday in Minnesota.

Ducks' Patrick Eaves: Shifts to IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Eaves (illness) is now listed on injured reserve, per the NHL's official media site.

Eaves won't be eligible to return Saturday versus the Flyers, but health permitting, he could return to action Wednesday against the Canucks. Of course, the Ducks are near the basement of the Pacific Division standings at 21-25-9, with absolutely no incentive to rush the veteran back into the lineup.

Ducks' Patrick Eaves: Dealing with illness
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Eaves is under the weather and won't be in the lineup versus Ottawa on Thursday, Elliott Teaford of The Orange County Register reports.

Eaves has been limited to a mere seven games this season due to various injuries, including a shoulder issue and most recently a back problem. With the veteran unavailable, Derek Grant or Adam Cracknell figures to slot back into the lineup. Given all the health issues that have plagued Eaves this year, it wouldn't be a shock to see him call it a career at the end of the 2018-19 campaign.

Ducks' Patrick Eaves: Back in action Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Eaves (back) has been activated off of injured reserve and will retake his place among the lines Saturday against the Jets, Scott Billeck of NHL.com reports.

Eaves participated in practice Thursday, foreshadowing his return to the lineup for Anaheim. He will slot in as the right wing on the fourth line alongside Brian Gibbons and Carter Rowney, but Eaves offers very little in terms of fantasy upside at this point in his career.

Ducks' Patrick Eaves: Skating with big club
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Eaves (back) practiced with the Ducks on Thursday, Eric Stephens of The Athletic reports.

Eaves has yet to be recalled from his AHL conditioning assignment, but it appears as though that could happen prior to Saturday's matchup with Winnipeg. Another update on the veteran forward's status should surface in the coming days.

Ducks' Patrick Eaves: Settling back in with AHL club
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Eaves (back) -- who is on a conditioning assignment -- registered two shots on goal in Wednesday's 2-1 win over AHL Texas.

While setting two empty shots on goal is nothing to write home about, the Ducks can take solace in the fact that Eaves is on the ice at all. Following a roster firesale, Anaheim snapped a 12-game losing streak with a shutout over Minnesota on Thursday, and there's been more attention on the veteran winger since he's missed the past 30 games. A conditioning assignment typically marks the final obstacle in returning from a significant injury, so there's hope that he'll return before long.

Ducks' Patrick Eaves: Heads on conditioning stint
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Ducks assigned Eaves (back) to AHL San Diego on a conditioning loan Wednesday, Eric Stephens of The Athletic reports.

Eaves has been sidelined since Nov. 9 due to a fractured rib and back spasms, so the Ducks will undoubtedly proceed with caution to ensure he's back to 100 percent before rejoining the big club's lineup. The veteran forward can stay with Anaheim's minor-league affiliate for a maximum of 14 days, which means he'll definitely be back with the Ducks following the NHL's upcoming All-Star break.

Ducks' Patrick Eaves: Ready for contact
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Eaves (back, ribs) shed his no-contact jersey Thursday, Elliott Teaford of The Orange County Register reports.

Eaves has been bogged down by a fractured rib and back spasms, missing 26 straight games as a result. Rookie Kiefer Sherwood's held down the fort in his stead, but the Ducks undoubtedly long for the presence of the 34-year-old veteran, who has experience playing alongside Ryan Getzlaf and Rickard Rakell.

Ducks' Patrick Eaves: Out indefinitely with rib, back injuries
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Eaves will be sidelined indefinitely due to a broken rib in addition to his back injury.

Per Eric Stephens of The Athletic, Eaves played with the fractured rib and it was the cause of his back spasms. His absence will continue to leave the Ducks thin up front, and the lack of a timetable for return suggests he's got a way to go in his recovery. Fortunately, it looks like there is a chance Eaves won't require surgery to correct the problem.

Ducks' Patrick Eaves: Remains unavailable
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Eaves (back) isn't in the projected lineup for Wednesday's game against the Canucks, NHL.com's Dan Arritt reports.

Eaves has missed Anaheim's last four contests due to back spasms, and the Ducks have yet to release any details regarding a potential timeline for his return. The veteran winger should be considered out indefinitely until Anaheim elects to shed some light on his status.

Ducks' Patrick Eaves: Suffering from back spasms
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Eaves is dealing with back spasms, but he could return to action for Sunday's clash with Colorado, Eric Stephens of The Athletic reports.

Sunday is the earliest Eaves could be activated from IR anyway. The winger has been plagued by injuries the last few seasons and has been limited to just five games in 2018-19. In fact, the veteran hasn't registered a point in more than a calendar year, with his last one being an Oct. 11, 2017 goal against the Islanders.

November 14, 2018 10:05 AM
Ducks' Patrick Eaves: Shifts to IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Eaves (upper body) has surfaced on injured reserve, per the NHL's media site.

While his injury was originally believed to be nothing more than a day-to-day issue, Eaves is the fourth forward currently residing on injured reserve, with the Ducks already experiencing 117 man games lost this season.

Ducks' Patrick Eaves: Out of lineup Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Eaves (upper body) will not play in Monday's game against the Predators.

Eaves was a late scratch prior to Monday's tilt against Nashville and is considered day-to-day for now. The veteran forward has been held without a point in five games since returning from a shoulder injury.

Ducks' Patrick Eaves: Making season debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Eaves (shoulder) will make his season debut Thursday against the Rangers.

Eaves missed the first 13 games of the campaign due to a shoulder injury, and he only appeared in two contests last season due to Guillain-Barre syndrome, so he'll likely have some significant rust to shake off early on against New York. Fantasy owners may want to take a wait-and-see approach with Eaves while he works himself back into game shape.

November 1, 2018 05:33 PM
Ducks' Patrick Eaves: Could play Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Eaves (shoulder) could play Thursday against the Rangers, Lisa Dillman of The Athletic reports.

This is a bit of a surprise considering Eaves (shoulder) had been without an official return timeline up to this point. According to general manager Bob Murray, Eaves could draw into the lineup as early as Thursday. If that is the plan, the veteran forward will need to be activated off injured reserve.

October 26, 2018 07:52 PM
Ducks' Patrick Eaves: Remains without timetable to return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Eaves (shoulder) doesn't have a specific time frame for when he might be able to suit up in a game, Eric Stephens of The Athletic reports.

Eaves did join the team on its most recent road trip and is practicing, which are certainly steps in the right direction. The winger is meeting with the medical staff on a weekly basis, but the fact that he can't pinpoint when he might be ready doesn't bode well for a return in the near future.

Ducks' Patrick Eaves: Skipping road trip
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Eaves (shoulder) has elevated his activity recently, but coach Rick Carlyle indicated Friday that Eaves will not join the team on its upcoming two-game road trip, Eric Stephens of The Athletic reports.

Eaves is believed to be nearing a return to the lineup, but his absence will extend through the weekend at a minimum and there's still no clear end date set at this point. He should return to a sizable role when healthy after recording 51 points over 79 games in his last full season (2016-17).
