Ducks' Danton Heinen: Scores lone goal in win
Heinen potted a goal on three shots in Tuesday's 1-0 win over the Coyotes.
Heinen capitalized on a turnover by Drake Caggiula in the first period, and John Gibson made it stand for a Ducks win. The tally was Heinen's first of the year -- he's added one assist, 16 shots on goal and a plus-1 rating in seven appearances. A lackluster team offense has limited Heinen's contributions so far, but he'll likely remain in a middle-six role for most of the year.... See More ... See Less
Ducks' John Gibson: Records second shutout
Gibson posted a 31-save shutout in Tuesday's 1-0 win over the Coyotes.
Gibson was perfect for the second time in six appearances this season. A lone goal from Danton Heinen was all needed to earn the win. The 27-year-old Gibson is 3-1-2 with a 1.68 GAA and a .948 save percentage. The Ducks' offense is averaging just 1.71 goals per game, so it's been up to Gibson to create his own luck more often than not. He'll look for similar results if he starts again Thursday versus the Coyotes.... See More ... See Less
Ducks' John Gibson: Facing Coyotes on Tuesday
Gibson will start Tuesday's road game versus the Coyotes.
Gibson is 2-1-2 with a 2.01 GAA and a .938 save percentage through five starts. He's coming off of a 32-save win over the Avalanche on Sunday, and he's been solid throughout the season. Gibson faces an Arizona team averaging 2.83 goals per game, so he shouldn't be tested too heavily.... See More ... See Less
Ducks' Josh Mahura: Back to taxi squad
Mahura was sent down to the taxi squad Tuesday, Elliott Teaford of The Orange County Register reports.
Mahura has yet to appear in an NHL game this season and likely will continue to serve as a fringe roster player. At this point, it will likely take an injury for Mahura to get a chance to crack the lineup, though Ben Hutton may still be ahead of him on the depth chart.... See More ... See Less
Ducks' Andrew Agozzino: Ushered to minors
Agozzino was demoted to AHL San Diego on Monday, according to TSN's transactions list.
Agozzino was brought up to the taxi squad last week but was never promoted to the active roster. He'll likely spend most of the season in the minors but should be on the shortlist of call-ups.... See More ... See Less
Ducks' Jacob Larsson: Pockets assist in win
Larsson earned an assist and blocked two shots in Sunday's 3-1 win over the Avalanche.
Larsson had the secondary helper on Rickard Rakell's second-period tally. Through six games, Larsson has two assists, eight blocked shots and an even plus-minus rating. The Swede skates on the Ducks' third pairing -- his usage is limited, and the team's offense isn't deep enough to make him a factor in fantasy.... See More ... See Less
Ducks' Carter Rowney: Collects another helper
Rowney posted an assist, four hits and two blocked shots in Sunday's 3-1 win over the Avalanche.
Rowney has been unusually productive through six games, as he has already supplied four helpers. The 31-year-old has also been a physical presence with 19 hits and 12 blocked shots, which is more in line with his typical work. Most fantasy managers don't need to pay attention to Rowney, but he's worth a look in DFS and deeper season-long formats while he's producing on the scoresheet.... See More ... See Less
Ducks' Derek Grant: Solid all-around effort
Grant contributed an assist, four blocked shots and two hits in Sunday's 3-1 win over the Avalanche.
The fourth-line center made defensive plays throughout the game. Grant went only 4-for-14 at the faceoff dot, but he salvaged a decent performance with an assist on Hampus Lindholm's empty-net tally. The 30-year-old Grant now has two helpers, 10 blocked shots, six hits and a plus-1 rating through six appearances.... See More ... See Less
Ducks' Adam Henrique: Sets up opening goal
Henrique produced an assist and three blocked shots in Sunday's 3-1 win over the Avalanche.
Henrique won a faceoff back to Jakob Silfverberg, who then struck for the first goal just 58 seconds into the game. With the helper, both of Henrique's points have come in the last two games. The center has added seven shots on goal, 15 hits and seven blocked shots through six outings.... See More ... See Less
Ducks' Ryan Getzlaf: Slides helper in win
Getzlaf posted an assist in Sunday's 3-1 win over the Avalanche.
Getzlaf set up Rickard Rakell in the second period for what would be the game-winning tally. Through six games, Getzlaf has three helpers, 17 hits and seven shots on goal. Fantasy managers are still waiting for the noted playmaker to bury one of his own as the 35-year-old has been a little inconsistent early on.... See More ... See Less
Ducks' Hampus Lindholm: Notches empty-netter
Lindholm scored an empty-net goal, doled out three hits and added two PIM in Sunday's 3-1 win over the Avalanche.
Lindholm provided an insurance tally in the third period to assure the Ducks' win. It's his second goal and point of the year, to go with 11 shots on net, 10 blocked shots and five hits through six appearances. Lindholm isn't getting much power-play time with Kevin Shattenkirk and Cam Fowler manning the point this year, but he should continue to see plenty of ice time at even strength.... See More ...

Ducks' Rickard Rakell: Deposits goal in win
Rakell scored a goal on two shots in Sunday's 3-1 win over the Avalanche.
Rakell converted on a vintage pass from Ryan Getzlaf in the second period to give the Ducks a 2-0 lead. That tally stood as the game-winner, and it was Rakell's first of the year as well. The Swede has contributed two points, seven hits and 19 shots on goal through six outings, but both points have come in the last two games. That suggests Rakell is warming up, and his first goal may have opened the floodgates.... See More ... See Less
Ducks' Jakob Silfverberg: Strikes quickly Sunday
Silfverberg scored a goal on four shots in Sunday's 3-1 win over the Avalanche.
Silfverberg tallied just 58 seconds into the first period, striking off of a faceoff win from Adam Henrique. The 30-year-old Silfverberg had no points through four games, but he's picked up a goal and an assist in his last two outings. The Swede seems to be heating up -- that's good news for fantasy managers and Ducks fans alike after his slow start.... See More ... See Less
Ducks' John Gibson: Knocks off Avalanche
Gibson turned aside 32 of 33 shots in Sunday's 3-1 win over the Avalanche.
Apparently the key to stopping an Avalanche is putting a brick wall in front of it. Failing that, use Gibson, who gave up only four goals on 65 shots across two games against the Avs. Due to a lack of offense in front of him, Gibson's record sits at 2-1-2 through five starts. He's allowed only 10 goals in this year, and he should continue to provide solid ratios for fantasy managers even if wins remain elusive. Next up for Gibson and the Ducks: a two-game set in Arizona on Tuesday and Thursday.... See More ... See Less
Ducks' John Gibson: Back in goal Sunday
Gibson led the Ducks onto the ice, indicating he'll start Sunday's home game versus the Avalanche, Elliott Teaford of The Orange County Register reports.
Gibson has posted a 2.26 GAA and a .929 save percentage in four games this season. He was on the wrong end of an overtime loss to the Avalanche on Friday, but he played well with 29 saves on 32 shots. Facing the Avs isn't easy for any goalie, but Gibson's a solid option for fantasy managers who don't need to prioritize wins.... See More ... See Less
Ducks' Anthony Stolarz: Jumps to taxi squad
Stolarz was recalled from AHL San Diego to the taxi squad Friday, TSN reports.
Stolarz will serve as the No. 3 goalie behind John Gibson and Ryan Miller. The 27-year-old could occasionally suit up to serve in a backup role, but he's not expected to play much, barring an injury to Gibson or Miller.... See More ... See Less
