Ducks' Hampus Lindholm: Given green light
Lindholm (upper body) was among several Ducks given the all-clear by general manager Bob Murray.
Lindholm failed to reach the 25-point mark for just the second time in his seven-year NHL career. Injuries have limited the blueliner throughout his career, as he's managed to log over 70 games in a season just once in the previous four campaigns. If he can stay healthy, the 26-year-old is capable of providing mid-range fantasy value given his offensive capabilities.... See More ... See Less
Ducks' Erik Gudbranson: Healthy for 2020-21
Gudbranson (upper body) will be ready for next season according to general manager Bob Murray.
Gudbranson started the year with the Penguins but was traded to Anaheim back in late October. With the Ducks, the 27-year-old logged 20:02 of ice time per game in which he notched four goals, five assists and 76 hits. Given his limited offensive upside, fantasy owners shouldn't be butting heads with each other to select Gudbranson ahead of the 2020-21 campaign.... See More ... See Less
Ducks' John Gibson: Ready for next season
Gibson (groin) is fully fit according to general manager Bob Murray and will be ready for the 2020-21 campaign.
It was a difficult year for Gibson, as his GAA topped the 3.00 mark for the first time in his career. In addition, the netminder posted a personal worst .904 save percentage. Looking ahead to next season, the Pittsburgh native should still be considered one of the top goaltenders in the league, though his supporting cast could still leave something to be desired....

Ducks' Cam Fowler: Given all-clear
According to general manager Bob Murray, Fowler (lower body) and the remaining injured Ducks have been cleared to play ahead of next season.
Fowler missed the final 12 contests of the regular season prior to the league going on hiatus due to his lower-body issue. The 27-year-old missed the 30-point and 60-game marks for the second straight year. If he can stay fully fit next season, the blueliner should be capable of producing from the blue line....

Ducks' Kodie Curran: Secures two-year deal
Curran inked a two-year, $2 million contract with Anaheim on Tuesday, RDS.ca reports.
Curran spent the past two seasons playing for Rogle BK in the SHL in which he racked up 24 goals and 62 helpers in 97 appearances. The 30-year-old went undrafted coming out of the University of Calgary and spent a year in the ECHL and AHL before making the move overseas. With a one-way deal in place, the blueliner should be a near lock for the Opening Night roster heading into the 2020-21 campaign.... See More ... See Less
Ducks' Adam Henrique: Piles up 26 tallies
Henrique scored 26 goals and chipped in 17 assists in 71 games this season.
The 30-year-old's scoring was one of the lone bright spots in Anaheim this year, as he paced the team in both goals and points. Henrique didn't quite reach the heights of his 30-goal, 50-point effort from 2015-16 with New Jersey, but it's clear that he's an effective goal scorer with the Ducks and appears set to continue providing fantasy value in all but the shallowest of leagues....

Ducks' John Gibson: Suffers career worsts in 2019-20
Gibson (groin) recorded a 20-26-5 record, 3.00 GAA and .904 save percentage across 51 starts this season.
The American netminder had a rough go of it in 2019-20, as the aforementioned ratios were by far the worst of his six full years in the NHL and well behind his career-average 2.53 GAA and .918 save percentage. It's well documented that the Ducks are a work in progress as one of the league's (current) worst teams, but that does little to ease the sting for Gibson owners, who saw their guy make the fifth most starts in the NHL but give up too many goals to provide solid fantasy value....

Ducks' Michael Del Zotto: Posts 15 points in 49 games
Del Zotto finished 2019-20 with two goals and 13 assists in 49 games.
Del Zotto's return to Anaheim after departing briefly last year to win a Cup with St. Louis didn't amount to much excitement. MDZ hasn't offered attractive fantasy production since 2014-15's 32-point effort in 64 games with Philadelphia, and his lack of shooting (57 SOG) and power-play time (47 seconds on average) this season didn't exactly help. He dished out 101 hits, though, so if your league rewards physicality -- and 0.31 points per game from the back end is of use -- go ahead and take a look at the veteran next year.... See More ...

Ducks' Max Jones: Unspectacular as sophomore
Jones produced eight goals and 12 points in 59 games this season.
Anaheim's first-round pick in 2016 (24th overall) didn't do much to turn any heads in 2019-20. Jones' 102 shots on goal ranked fifth among all Ducks forwards, which could be spun as a positive, but any prospective owners out there would love to see him start scoring goals at better than a 7.8 percent clip. Nonetheless, the 22-year-old will likely jump back into the team's middle six next season as he continues to develop at the NHL level.... See More ... See Less
Ducks' David Backes: Further declines in 2019-20
Backes suited up in just 22 games this season, recording one goal and five assists.
The good news, after being frequently scratched and eventually waived by Boston, is that Backes chipped in three assists in six contests with Anaheim after being traded in February. It's no secret that the 36-year-old is on the tail end of his career, but with a year remaining on his contract, he could make for an interesting cheap value play in DFS formats next season.... See More ... See Less
Ducks' Carter Rowney: One point shy of 20
Rowney concluded the 2019-20 campaign with 19 points in 71 games.
The second-year Duck and fourth-year NHLer failed to take the next step in his development this year, as he fell one point shy of 2018-19's 20 despite playing in nine additional games this season. Rowney didn't play a ton (12:49 on average, including just five seconds on the power play) or shoot much (63 SOG), either, so the only thing that should be keeping him in the fantasy conversation in deep leagues are his 189 hits.... See More ... See Less
Ducks' Nicolas Deslauriers: Triple-digit hits again
Deslauriers finished his first season in Anaheim with seven goals, six assists and 137 hits across 59 games.
The Quebec native just completed his sixth full NHL campaign, and he's piled up triple-digit hits in each. Deslauriers will probably never exhibit the same level of physicality as his eye-popping 261-hit effort as a rookie back in 2014-15 -- and considering his unspectacular offensive numbers, there isn't much else to see here from a fantasy perspective.... See More ... See Less
Ducks' Ryan Miller: Lackluster in 2019-20
Miller finished the season with a 9-6-4 record, 3.10 GAA and .907 save percentage. Nineteen of his 23 appearances were starts.
Used sparingly behind workhorse starter John Gibson (51 starts), Miller's nine victories and pedestrian ratios didn't do much for owners this year. It was also the first time since 2013-14 that he didn't post a shutout. Miller is a pending unrestricted free agent who's heading into his age-40 season, so there isn't likely to be much fantasy run left in the two-time 40-plus-game winner.... See More ... See Less
Ducks' Sonny Milano: Fares well in Anaheim
Milano recorded 23 points in 55 games this season.
In his limited look with the Ducks after being traded in February, the former Blue Jacket put up five points in nine games -- an encouraging sign for a team often starved for offense. Milano never really fulfilled his lofty draft stock (16th overall in 2014) in Columbus, topping out at 22 points in 2017-18, so it's anybody's guess as to how much better he'll fare with the rebuilding Ducks come next season.... See More ... See Less
Ducks' Jacob Larsson: Finishes with 11 points
Larsson finished the season with two goals and nine assists in 60 games.
The 2015 27th overall pick has yet to really move the fantasy needle in his first 113 games in the league. As such, especially considering he doesn't offer much by way of peripheral metrics (34 hits, 57 blocked shots, minus-9), Larsson shouldn't be on any draft radars come next season.... See More ... See Less
Ducks' Danton Heinen: Decent production in 2019-20
Heinen contributed 26 points in 67 games this season.
Heinen was only able to record four points in nine contests after being moved from Boston to Anaheim in February, but the 24-year-old's scoring rate of 0.39 points per game is certainly useful in deeper settings. He received over two full minutes of additional ice time in Anaheim (16:21 versus 14:11 in Boston), so it'll be interesting to see what he does with the expanded role next season. Heinen hasn't quite shown the promise of his 47-point rookie effort in 2017-18, but there's plenty of fantasy potential here in deeper settings.... See More ... See Less
Ducks' Hampus Lindholm: Worst scoring total as pro
Lindholm (upper body) recorded two goals and 23 points in 56 games this season.
Both of the above numbers are career lows for the seventh-year NHLer, with his shooting percentage (1.8) and hits (34) both following suit in that regard. However, it's not all doom and gloom with Lindholm, as his scoring pace of 0.41 points per game was a few ticks above last year and would amount to 34 -- his career high -- over a full season. With the Ducks eliminated from the league's announced 24-team playoff format and not suiting up until next season, Lindholm should be over any lingering effects of his injury once regular-season hockey returns to Anaheim.... See More ... See Less
Ducks' Matt Irwin: Non-factor in new digs
Irwin recorded one point -- an assist -- in nine games with Anaheim this season.
The 32-year-old came over via trade from Nashville, where he pitched in just two points in 27 contests, in late February. As evidenced by Irwin's single point in Orange County and 18 over the last three seasons, there likely won't be anything to see here from a fantasy perspective anytime soon.... See More ... See Less
Ducks' Sam Steel: Posts 22 points in 2019-20
Steel concluded the season having posted six goals and 16 assists in 65 games.
The sophomore's 22 points were marred by an unsightly minus-13 rating, but such is life when playing for one of the league's worst teams. Steel managed to produce over a third of his points (eight) on the power play, where he averaged 1:44 while often centering the team's top unit.... See More ... See Less
Ducks' Troy Terry: Manages 15 points this season
Terry produced four goals and 15 points in 47 games this year.
The 22-year-old also had a couple extended stints in the AHL (six and 14 games), where he was able to score at a better clip (16 points in 14 games). Terry put up point-per-game numbers with AHL San Diego in 2018-19, as well (41 points in 41 contests). Given that he's still just 22, there's still hope for him yet to turn into a legitimate offensive threat in the NHL.... See More ... See Less
