Ducks coach Bruce Boudreau thinks Ryan Getzlaf should be in the running for the Hart Trophy.
"I certainly would vote for him, but at the same time, the Canadian media – and there’s a little more of them – will be going for Carey Price," Boudreau said. "If I'm looking at what we've done, what we've accomplished, who our leader is every night then Ryan Getzlaf is the guy." Statistically, Getzlaf is a hard sell. He has 24 goals and 68 points in 75 games, which is certainly good, but there are 11 forwards with more points than him. In addition to Price, Alex Ovechkin, Sidney Crosby, and John Tavares are among those that are serious contenders for the award. Apr 1 - 9:01 AM

Ryan Getzlaf scored a goal and added an assist to help the Ducks slide by a desperate Bruins team 3-2 on Thursday night.

Ryan Getzlaf vows that the Anaheim Ducks will bounce back following Tuesday's 5-3 loss to Columbus.

Anaheim also suffered a 7-2 loss to the New York Rangers on Sunday. "What we're doing and the way we’re playing right now is not acceptable," Getzlaf said. "We're going to change that. Internally. Within our locker room, we're going to change it." Anaheim has already essentially secured the top seed in the Pacific Division, so at this point the squad is mostly focused on simply ending the season on a high note so that they can carry that momentum into the playoffs.

Ryan Getzlaf scored a goal and an assist in Anaheim's come-from-behind 6-3 victory over Calgary on Friday night.

The Captain had perhaps the oddest goal you'll see this year. He one-timed a Patrick Maroon pass from the point so hard, it rebounded off the wall behind Jonas Hiller, off his left skate, and in to put the Ducks up for good at 3-2 midway through the third. Getzlaf now has 18 goals and a team leading 56 points.

Not a bad day at office considering he was a game-time decision because of a lower body injury. The Ducks found themselves down 3-0 after the first period, but Getzlaf cut that lead to 3-1. He also helped set up Sami Vatanen's third period power play goal. The 29-year-old has 17 goals and 54 points in 51 games. He is clearly one of the elite centers in the NHL.
