Antoine Vermette will be a healthy scratch in Wednesday's game against the Minnesota Wild.

Vermette has eight goals and eight assists in 63 games this season. This is the fifth game in a row that he'll watch from the press box. Chris Kelly, Troy Terry and Korbinian Holzer are also expected to serve as healthy scratches in this one.
Apr 4 - 9:41 PM

Antoine Vermette has only drawn into the lineup three times since the start of March.

For the 35-year-old with 1,045 NHL games under his belt, being a healthy scratch this often is an unfamiliar position for him. "It’s real difficult," Ducks coach Randy Carlyle said. "It’s obviously something he didn’t plan on. We didn’t plan on. He’s just got to stay ready and be positive. And he’s done that. If you see him, he’s jumped in and went the extra time through the lines. When Kes doesn’t skate, we put him in there. He’s not sitting back and pouting. He’s waiting for an opportunity and trying to stay sharp." For his part, Vermette said that he doesn't want to be a distraction and he's focusing on being supportive of his teammates. If there's an injury, he might find himself back in a regular role, but for now, he's likely to remain as a depth forward.

Antoine Vermette was scratched from Sunday's game against Edmonton.

The veteran has just 16 points in 65 games this season.
Mar 25 - 9:36 PM

It appears as though Antoine Vermette will be back in the lineup on Tuesday.

Vermette was a healthy scratch two times last week and he has logged just over eight minutes of ice time in each of his last three appearances. Look for him to skate on the fourth line against Detroit if he plays.
Feb 13 - 1:05 PM

Antoine Vermette won't play in Tuesday's game against the Buffalo Sabres.

The veteran isn't participating in the team's pre-game warmup. It's unclear if Vermette is injured or if he's just being made a healthy scratch. Derek Grant will take his place in the lineup. If Vermette is hurt, we'll make sure to update his status. Francois Beauchemin will serve as a healthy scratch in this one. Korbinian Holzer will take his spot in the lineup.
Feb 6 - 6:42 PM

Antoine Vermette played on the top line Sunday with Ryan Getzlaf and Rickard Rakell.

It worked out great for the winger who had a three point night. He has seven goals and 15 points in 40 games and that will only improve if he remains on the top unit.
Jan 1 - 7:08 AM

Antoine Vermette produced a goal and two assists in a 5-2 win over Arizona on Sunday.

Vermette halted an eight-game pointless drought with the three-point effort. He assisted on a pair of goals by Rickard Rakell before he scored an empty-netter to seal Anaheim's victory. Vermette has seven goals and eight helpers in 40 games this year.

Antoine Vermette scored a pair of goals with a plus-1 rating, two minor penalties and a hit in Wednesday's 3-2 win at St. Louis.

It was Vermette's second game-winning tally of the season, and first since Oct. 20 against Montreal. He snapped an 11-game goal drought and a six-game scoreless streak, so don't get terribly excited about this performance. He is still only worth a roster spot in the deepest of fantasy pools until he shows a little more consistency.

Antoine Vermette notched a goal and a helper in a 6-2 win against Montreal on Friday night.

Vermette and linemates Chris Wagner and Corey Perry combined for two goals and five points in the contest. Wagner has three points, including two goals, in his last two appearances.
Sat, Oct 21, 2017 09:04:00 AM

Antoine Vermette scored a goal in Thursday's 3-0 win over the San Jose Sharks.

The 35-year-old picked up nine goals and 19 assists in his first season with the Anaheim Ducks. Vermette hasn't hit the 40-point mark since the 2013-14 season, so it's unlikely that he'll get to that mark this year. He has no fantasy value in standard leagues.

Antoine Vermette might slot in on a line with Andrew Cogliano and Jakob Silfverberg due to Ryan Kesler's absence.

Kesler might miss the first half of the campaign due to a hip injury, which has create a big hole for the Ducks to fill. The Ducks are experimenting with using Rickard Rakell as a center in Kesler's absence, but that doesn't mean he'll also be playing alongside Kesler's usual linemates from 2016-17. Vermette might end up averaging more time than the 15:54 minutes he got last season while Kesler is absent, but Vermette still wouldn't be a significant offensive threat.
Tue, Sep 19, 2017 04:08:00 AM

Anaheim has dominated the faceoff circle against Edmonton.

The Ducks have won 119 of the 200 draws (59.5 percent) in the first three games of the series. "You want to touch base with all aspects of the game and you want to put your best foot forward," Antoine Vermette said. "We firmly believe if we start with the puck, we give ourselves a chance to be on the right side of the game." Vermette has a 59.8 winning percentage in the postseason.
Wed, May 3, 2017 06:12:00 PM

Antoine Vermette is on a three-game point streak.

Vermette registered an assist in the Ducks' 3-2 overtime loss to Edmonton. He's up to eight goals and 26 points in 68 contests this season.
Sun, Apr 2, 2017 09:31:00 AM

Antoine Vermette has served his 10-game suspension and is now eligible to return to the team.

Through 58 games this season the veteran pivot has posted eight goals and 22 points along with 36 PIMs, 38 blocks and 44 hits. Expect him to return to his post on Sunday against the Capitals.
