Ducks' Simon Benoit: Takes helper in win
Benoit logged an assist and three hits in Thursday's 5-4 win over the Canadiens.
Benoit has drawn into two games since clearing the COVID-19 protocols. His assist on a Trevor Zegras goal in the second period was Benoit's first point since Dec. 15. The 23-year-old defenseman has three points, 89 hits, 17 blocked shots and 13 shots on net through 27 contests. He's unlikely to be much of a factor on offense, and he'll have to compete with Josh Mahura for playing time going forward.... See More ... See Less
Ducks' Buddy Robinson: Grabs another apple
Robinson logged an assist and two hits in Thursday's 5-4 win over the Canadiens.
Robinson has put up helpers in each of the last two games. All four of his points through 20 contests this season have come in two-game clusters, so an extended run of offense is unlikely for the 30-year-old winger. He's added 22 shots on net, 38 hits and a plus-2 rating in a fourth-line role.... See More ... See Less
Ducks' Sam Steel: Slides assist Thursday
Steel produced an assist and two hits in Thursday's 5-4 win over the Canadiens.
Steel set Sam Carrick loose on a partial breakaway for the opening tally 8:14 into the first period. With a goal and three assists in his last four games, Steel is on a small surge of offense. The 23-year-old has done more with less playing time, filling a third-line role in recent contests. He's at 13 points, 43 shots on net and 10 PIM in 38 contests overall, filling in around the lineup as necessary due to injuries. With the Ducks enjoying good health among their forwards, Steel will probably remain in the bottom six in the near term.... See More ... See Less
Ducks' Jakob Silfverberg: Adds helper in win
Silfverberg logged an assist and fired three shots on goal in Thursday's 5-4 win over the Canadiens.
Silfverberg has a goal and an assist in his last two games after a stretch in which he tallied just one goal in 12 contests. The Swede's offense still hasn't returned to the level it was at early in the season. He's at three goals, 12 helpers, 93 shots on net, 22 PIM and a plus-1 rating through 40 appearances.... See More ... See Less
Ducks' Jamie Drysdale: Gathers assist in win
Drysdale logged an assist in Thursday's 5-4 win over the Canadiens.
Drysdale helped out on the second of Trevor Zegras' two tallies in the second period. Through 12 games in January, Drysdale has produced a solid five assists. The 19-year-old blueliner is at 19 points, 72 shots on net, 48 blocked shots and a minus-9 rating through 46 contests. He's been steady enough for a top-four role, but he's probably more of a fringe option in fantasy.... See More ... See Less
Ducks' Kevin Shattenkirk: Dishes two power-play helpers
Shattenkirk logged two power-play assists, a pair of shots on net and two blocked shots in Thursday's 5-4 win over the Canadiens.
Shattenkirk had the secondary helpers on goals by Cam Fowler and Troy Terry in the first period. With a goal and four assists during a four-game point streak, Shattenkirk has recaptured some of his early-season magic on offense. The defenseman is up to 26 points (12 on the power play), 90 shots on net, 67 blocks and a plus-1 rating through 46 appearances overall.... See More ... See Less
Ducks' Sam Carrick: Opens scoring in win
Carrick scored a goal and added two PIM in Thursday's 5-4 win over the Canadiens.
Carrick played 14:06 of ice time, topping the 14-minute mark for just the fourth time this season to help cover for the early exit of Ryan Getzlaf (upper body). The 29-year-old Carrick tallied the opening goal on a partial breakaway in the first period, earning his third point in his last four outings. For the season, the fourth-line center is up to nine tallies, 13 points, 53 shots on net, 57 hits and 45 PIM through 34 contests.... See More ... See Less
Ducks' Cam Fowler: Goal and assist on power play
Fowler scored a goal and added an assist, both on the power play, in Thursday's 5-4 win over the Canadiens.
Both of Fowler's points came in the first period as the Ducks jumped out to a 3-0 lead after 20 minutes. The 30-year-old defenseman has three points in as many games since he cleared the COVID-19 protocols. He's been a steady contributor for much of the season with 23 points -- matching last season's 56-game output -- 69 shots on net, 65 blocked shots and a minus-1 rating through 42 contests.... See More ... See Less
Ducks' Anthony Stolarz: First win since mid-December
Stolarz made 36 saves in a 5-4 win over Montreal on Thursday.
Stolarz and the Ducks had a 4-1 lead early in the second, and a 5-2 advantage later in the same frame. The Habs picked away, but Stolarz held his ground under pressure to preserve the victory. It's his first win since Dec. 15.... See More ... See Less
Ducks' Troy Terry: Nearing point-per-game pace
Terry had a goal and two assists in a 5-4 win over Montreal on Thursday.
He scored on a one-timer from the left face-off dot to push the score to 3-0. Terry has 24 goals and 40 points in 41 games, and he leads the Ducks in scoring. He's having a career year, but beware his highly inflated shooting percentage. Terry came into the game with a 25 percent rate, well above his career mark of 14.5. He's a great player, but it will be hard to keep this pace up. Terry is a guy who should be marketed in dynasty formats -- he's good, but not this good.... See More ... See Less
Ducks' Trevor Zegras: Nets highlight reel Michigan goal
Zegras scored two goals, one of which stood as the winner, in a 5-4 victory over the Canadiens on Thursday.
His first goal will be the SportsCenter highlight of the week and maybe month. Zegras nonchalantly went behind the Habs' net and perfectly executed a Michigan -- that unbelievable lacrosse-style goal where he picked the puck up on his blade and turned it over in the air to go top corner from behind the goal line. Pure magic. Zegras has unbelievable hands and extraordinary vision, and he's firmly in contention for the Calder Trophy. The goals snapped a five-game goal drought, and he has 12 goals and 32 points in 40 games this season.... See More ... See Less
Ducks' Ryan Getzlaf: Out for game after high stick
Getzlaf (upper body) won't return to Thursday's game versus the Canadiens, Eric Stephens of The Athletic reports.
Getzlaf was clipped by a high stick early in the first period and was unable to return to the game. The Ducks labeled Getzlaf as day-to-day, so he's likely questionable ahead of Saturday's game versus the Senators.... See More ... See Less
Ducks' Brendan Guhle: Sent to AHL
Guhle was reassigned to AHL San Diego on Thursday.
Guhle won't be needed with the active roster now that the Ducks have their top defensemen healthy again. The 24-year-old did not earn a point in two games while with the big club.... See More ... See Less
Ducks' Derek Grant: Not playing Thursday
Grant (lower body) is not in Thursday's lineup against Montreal.
Grant will miss his second straight game Thursday. He has three goals over his last two appearances, giving him 11 points through 38 games this season. His next chance to play will be Saturday in Ottawa.... See More ... See Less
Ducks' Greg Pateryn: Drops to taxi squad
Pateryn was reassigned to the taxi squad Thursday.
Pateryn has two points in eight NHL appearances this season, but he'll now be a spare defenseman while with the taxi squad. He likely won't play for the Ducks unless they need more defensemen.... See More ... See Less
Ducks' Jacob Larsson: Dropped to taxi squad
Larsson was demoted to the taxi squad Thursday.
Larsson has appeared in just six NHL games this season. He'll likely be back with the big club as an injury replacement at some point.... See More ... See Less
Ducks' Adam Henrique: Activated off IR
Henrique (lower body) has been activated off injured reserve ahead of Thursday's matchup with Montreal, per the NHL's official media site.
At this point it isn't clear if Henrique will play against the Canadiens, but if not, he should be ready to rock Saturday against the Senators. The 31-year-old forward picked up six goals and 16 points through 24 contests before missing 20 games with a lower-body injury.... See More ... See Less
Ducks' Anthony Stolarz: Starting in Montreal
Stolarz will guard the road cage during Thursday's matchup with the Canadiens, Elliott Teaford of The Orange County Register reports.
Stolarz was awful in his last start Jan. 14 versus the Wild, surrendering six goals on just 29 shots before being replaced by Lukas Dostal in the third period of the eventual 7-3 defeat. The 28-year-old netminder will try to shake off the rust and secure his seventh win of the season in a road matchup with a Montreal team that's 5-10-1 at home this year.... See More ... See Less
