Antoine Vermette won 20-of-21 faceoffs Sunday.

That is unbelievable as the former Coyote has been an absolute force for the Ducks this season. He is up to a 67 percent success rating as he has won 199 of 297 draws this season. If you play the category, Vermette is a stud.

Antoine Vermette netted a goal in Anaheim's 4-1 victory against Edmonton on Tuesday.

Vermette has three goals and eight points in 17 games this season. That's more-or-less in line with what's expected of him, so naturally we imagine he'll keep up that pace.

Antoine Vermette played against Arizona on Friday for the first time since signing with the Ducks.

Anaheim went on to earn a 5-1 win Friday night and Vermette was a significant contributor in that contest as he scored a goal and an assist. He has two markers and seven points in 12 contests in 2015-16.
Nov 5 - 8:51 AM

Antoine Vermette has registered one goal and three assists in the last four games.

He picked up a goal and a helper on Tuesday night versus Los Angeles for his first multi-point effort of the season. Vermette has five points in 10 games, but he appears to be heating up.
Nov 2 - 5:54 PM

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.
