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.

"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.
