The Anaheim Ducks love the versatility of off-season acquisition Antoine Vermette.
Vermette is able to play all three forward positions and could slot in as the number three pivot or on the wing of the top two lines. "He can play all three forward positions," new head coach Randy Carlyle said. "He’s a 55-plus percenter in the faceoff circle. Left-hand faceoff guy. He can play power play. He can play penalty killing. He can move up your lineup, he can move down your lineup. And he’s going to see lots of ice." Look for 35-40 points and 50 penalty minutes from the ex-Coyote.

Antoine Vermette believes the Ducks are top contenders.

"I always portrayed them as a top contender," Vermette said of the Ducks. "And for me, it was a big thing. I had a chance to win it not too long ago. At this stage of my career, I believe in this team and the organization. It really gives me a chance to reproduce that and that means a lot for me." After being bought out by Arizona in early August, Vermette inked a two-year, $3.5 million deal with the club on Monday. Vermette will likely play a third line role with the Ducks, which will limit his overall fantasy value.
Aug 16 - 7:41 AM

The Anaheim Ducks have signed Antoine Vermette to a two-year, $3.5 million contract.

He'll come with a cap hit of $1.75 million. Vermette was recently bought out by the Arizona Coyotes. He reportedly had five offers on the table before settling on the Ducks. The 34-year-old scored 17 goals and 38 points in 76 games with the 'Yotes last season. Since coming into the NHL in 2003-04, Vermette has the second-best faceoff percentage among active players at 55.8 percent. He'll be a solid addition to Anaheim's third line.

Antoine Vermette will make a decision on the offers he has received by Monday, according to agent Allan Walsh.

Walsh added that Vermette has five offers on the table from NHL teams after being bought out by Arizona earlier this month.
Aug 13 - 12:01 PM

According to a league source, Antoine Vermette had multiple teams looking into him after he cleared unconditional waivers on Tuesday.

That was expected after the Coyotes made him an unrestricted free agent. Vermette struggles in puck possession metrics, but he can win faceoffs and pick up around 40 points. That should help him find work elsewhere.
Aug 3 - 3:57 PM

Antoine Vermette has officially cleared unconditional waivers.

The Coyotes will complete the buyout process now. Vermette shouldn't have a problem finding a new team as a free agent. He can contribute offensively and excels at winning faceoffs, making him a viable option for teams looking for depth down the middle.
Aug 2 - 12:25 PM

Coyotes GM John Chayka has announced that Antoine Vermette's contract has been bought out and the center is now an unrestricted free agent.

"In order to give our team more flexibility, we needed to make this difficult decision," said Chayka. "This move will provide an opportunity for some of our young, talented players to step up. Antoine is a class act and we thank him for all he did on and off the ice for the Arizona Coyotes organization. We wish him the best in the future." Arizona will save $2.5 million this year on their cap as a result of the move.
Aug 1 - 2:10 PM

Antoine Vermette has been placed on unconditional waivers by Arizona.

The Coyotes intend to buy out the rest of his contract. Arizona could be clearing room to give prospects like Dylan Strome or Christian Dvorak a shot down the middle or they could be interested in adding someone else. Vermette recorded 17 goals and 38 points in 76 games last season.
Aug 1 - 12:38 PM

Antoine Vermette was ejected for boarding Artem Anisimov during Tuesday's 6-2 loss to Chicago.

Vermette picked up a boarding major plus a game misconduct equaling 15 PIMs in all. Anisimov did not return to the game after the incident midway through the game. Vermette now has 93 PIMs on the season in 73 games.
Apr 6 - 2:28 AM

Antoine Vermette scored a goal in a 5-2 loss to St. Louis Monday night.

Vermette has 16 goals and 37 points in 73 games in 2015-16. That's roughly on par with what he did last season in terms of offensive production. We suspect we'll also see more of the same from the 33-year-old forward again next season.
Apr 5 - 9:02 AM

Don't look now but Antoine Vermette now has six points in three games.

Vermette picked up the proverbial dagger during Thursday's 3-1 win over the Sharks. He's also popped four goals during the streak, bringing his season totals up to 15 goals and 34 points.
Mar 18 - 1:36 AM

Antoine Vermette tallied two goals and an assist in the Coyotes’ 4-0 shutout of the Oilers on Saturday night.

It looked as if Vermette was cooked during his regular-season time with the Blackhawks last season. Then he had a solid playoffs, and the momentum carried into this season. Don’t be fooled, though. Even with five points in his past two games, Vermette still only has 14 goals and 33 points on the year. Viktor Tikhonov and Alex Tanguay got the other markers. Michael Stone had two assists.
Mar 13 - 1:02 AM

Antoine Vermette pushed the Coyotes past the Flames during Friday's 4-1 win.

Vermette collected the would-be game winner early on in the third period, and he also assisted on the later dagger. The wily veteran is now up to 12 goals and 30 points in 62 games this season.
Mar 12 - 2:43 AM

Antoine Vermette had a goal and four points in the Coyotes 5-1 win over Florida Saturday.

Vermette played on a line with Anthony Duclair and the newly-acquired Alex Tanguay and the trio combined for nine points on a big night in Phoenix. "He started really slow to the season and then had a pretty good burst, and this last little bit has been down again," coach Dave Tippett said of Vermette. "That’s a big night. Hopefully he can carry it on." Vermette now has 11 goals and 28 points this season, far below expectations.
Mar 6 - 6:51 AM

Antoine Vermette had an assist in a 3-2 loss to the Florida Panthers on Thursday.

Vermette has 10 goals and 24 points in 55 contests this season. His pace is less than what we had hoped for him and something that needs to be kept in mind going forward. At the age of 33, he just might not be a great bet to reach the 40-point mark over the course of a full season anymore.
