Ducks' Brandon Montour: Experiences incredible outing
Montour had a career night, recording a goal, four points, three shots on goal, three blocks and a plus-5 rating in a 6-3 victory against the Stars on Wednesday.
The scoring is wonderful, but in one night, Montour was able to erase his minus-5 rating. He is now an even player with five goals and 19 points in 33 games this season. In the last two games, Montour has two goals and six points with a plus-7 rating. He'll look to build upon this success against the Blue Jackets on Saturday.... See More ... See Less
Ducks' Ondrej Kase: Blazing hot
Kase recorded a hat trick on five shots in a 6-3 comeback victory against the Stars on Wednesday.
The 23-year-old opened the scoring Wednesday. The Stars answered with the next three goals, but then Kase responded with two more scores for the natural hat trick and to tie the score. The Ducks dominated the third period, scoring five unanswered goals total to end the night. Kase has eight goals and 14 points in 15 games this season, but five of his goals and nine of his points have come in the last five games.... See More ... See Less
Ducks' John Gibson: Picks up win behind offense
Gibson allowed three goals on 29 shots in a 6-3 victory against the Stars on Wednesday.
This was a rare instance of Gibson not holding up his end, but the Ducks offense bailing him out in a win. Usually, it's been the other way around this season, but not always resulting in victories. Despite owning a .925 save percentage, Gibson is 13-9-4 with a 2.60 GAA.... See More ... See Less
Ducks' Jared Coreau: Shipped back to San Diego
The Ducks reassigned Coreau to AHL San Diego on Wednesday.
Coreau was promoted Monday as added insurance in the crease with Chad Johnson yet to arrive and Ryan Miller (knee) sidelined. Johnson should be available Wednesday, making Coreau expendable in terms of his roster spot. The 27-year-old should remain one of the top candidates to rejoin the NHL ranks if Johnson or John Gibson should miss some time.... See More ... See Less
Ducks' John Gibson: In goal against Dallas
Gibson will patrol the crease in Wednesday's home game against the Stars, Eric Stephens of The Athletic reports.
Gibson has been a little shaky in the month of December, posting a sub-par 3.60 GAA and .889 save percentage in four appearances, but he's managed to compile a 2-1-0 record over that span due to solid goal support from his teammates. The American will look to keep rolling and pick up his 13th victory of the season in a favorable home matchup with a Dallas team that's only averaged 2.06 goals per game on the road this campaign, 29th in the NHL....

Ducks' Josh Mahura: Back with big club
Mahura was recalled from AHL San Diego on Tuesday, Elliott Teaford of The OC Register/Southern California News Group reports.
The 20-year-old has an assist in six games with Anaheim and gives the Ducks another healthy body as they deal with a plethora of injuries to both their forward and defensive groups. It's unclear if Mahura will play Wednesday against Dallas.... See More ... See Less
Ducks' Jeff Glass: Traded to Ducks' affiliate
Glass was dealt to the Ducks' AHL affiliate in a trade with Toronto on Monday.
Glass is unlikely to spend time with the big club despite backup Ryan Miller's current injury issues, but those same issues likely prompted the Ducks to bolster their goaltending depth in the AHL should an extensive call-up of current AHL starter Jared Coreau prove necessary....

Ducks' Ryan Miller: Diagnosed with MCL sprain
Miller (knee) is expected to miss six weeks of action and has been placed on injured reserve, per the NHL media site.
The team made the announcement Tuesday after head coach Randy Carlyle dropped a hint pertaining to a Miller update Monday night. The 38-year-old's knee injury came after several players slid into him during a recent game, back on Dec. 9. The veteran netminder is scheduled to be re-evaluated in two weeks, but in the meantime, the Ducks claimed Chad Johnson off waivers to help bolster the crease while Miller recovers.... See More ...

Ducks' Chad Johnson: Headed to Anaheim
Johnson was claimed off waivers by the Ducks on Tuesday, Elliotte Friedman of Sportsnet reports.
The move likely means Ryan Miller's lower-body will keep the veteran netminder out of action for an extended period. Johnson, a veteran in his ninth season, will get another opportunity in the NHL after being let go by St. Louis, but don't expect him to see a ton of action with the Ducks. John Gibson's value has increased exponentially with the injury to Miller. Anaheim will be Johnson's eighth NHL team.... See More ... See Less
Ducks' Rickard Rakell: Still wearing protective boot
Rakell is still wearing a protective boot on his injured ankle, Eric Stephens of The Athletic reports.
Rakell is hoping to travel with the Ducks on their upcoming six-game road trip which begins Saturday in Columbus, but he also doesn't want to rush his recovery and exacerbate the issue. The 25-year-old pivot won't play Wednesday against the Stars, but it sounds like he may be cleared to return to practice in the near future, at which point another update on his status should be made available. The 2011 first-round pick will remain on injured reserve for the duration of his absence.... See More ... See Less
Ducks' Adam Cracknell: Traded to Ducks
Cracknell was traded to Anaheim for defenseman Steven Oleksy on Monday.
Neither player has appeared at the NHL level this season, but that could change for Cracknell given his new team's lack of depth at front. Still, the 33-year-old winger's likely to start at the AHL level with his new club.... See More ... See Less
Ducks' Ryan Miller: Still awaiting word
An update on Miller (lower body) could come Tuesday, Sean Shapiro of The Athletic reports.
Head coach Randy Carlyle did not have any more information about Miller's lower-body injury Monday. He did say that an update on his goalie's status may come Tuesday, but either way, it's probably safe to assume the veteran netminder is headed for an extended absence after being involved in a multi-player collision on Sunday. Expect the Ducks to promote a goalie from the minors before Wednesday.... See More ... See Less
Ducks' Josh Mahura: Returns to minors
Mahura was sent down to AHL San Diego on Monday, Elliott Teaford of the O.C. Register reports.
Mahura has played six games with the Ducks this season in two three-game stints. The 20-year-old has one assist and 12 shots on net in that time. In a corresponding move, Anaheim recalled Andrei Sustr. This isn't the first time this season these two have swapped roles.... See More ... See Less
Ducks' Andy Welinski: Sent down again
Welinski was reassigned to AHL San Diego on Monday, Elliott Teaford of the O.C. Register reports.
This isn't surprising, as Welinski has been sent down a few times already this season only to get quickly recalled. However, the 25-year-old had been a scratch for five straight games before being sent down.... See More ... See Less
Ducks' Jared Coreau: Called up as insurance
Coreau was recalled from AHL San Diego on Monday, Elliott Teaford of the O.C. Register reports.
Ryan Miller (lower body) is banged up and considered day-to-day, hence the call-up for Coreau. The Ducks will hope to not have to actually use him in a game, and the 27-year-old will probably only be around to back up John Gibson as insurance until Miller is healthy.... See More ... See Less
Ducks' Andrej Sustr: Gets called up
Sustr was recalled from AHL San Diego on Monday, Elliott Teaford of the O.C. Register reports.
Sustr has been up-and-down from the AHL this season, and when he's been with the Ducks he's only been in the lineup sparingly. However, defensemen Andy Welinski and Josh Mahura were both sent down Monday, so perhaps Sustr will see a bit of playing time.... See More ... See Less
Ducks' Brandon Montour: Posts goal and assist in SO win
Montour scored a goal and assisted on another in a 6-5 shootout win over the Devils on Sunday.
Sunday's game featured six goals in the opening period, and Montour's happened to be the final one. The 23-year-old now has four goals and 15 points in 32 games this season and has been rather impressive in his third NHL season. So long as he remains on Anaheim's top power-play unit, Montour's fantasy value should stay where it's been all season.... See More ... See Less
Ducks' Jakob Silfverberg: Extends scoring streak in win
Silfverberg's first-period goal in Sunday's 6-5 shootout victory extended his goal streak to three games.
With eight goals and 14 points in 27 games this season, the 28-year-old Swede continues to be a model of consistency when healthy. Even if his regular shift comes in a bottom-six role, Silfverberg's involvement on the team's power play qualifies him as a high-ceiling option most every night. He finished Sunday's contest with a team-high six shots on goal and led all Anaheim forwards in ice time with 20:26.... See More ... See Less
