Ryan Getzlaf notched a goal for the Ducks in their 2-1 win over the Oilers on Saturday night.
Getzlaf’s goal in the third period was the game winner. He has goals in two consecutive games, with 19 in total, along with 57 points, good for 10th in the league. There's no reason to expect him to slow down as the season reaches crunch time. Francois Beauchemin got the other goal on the power play, via assists from Kyle Palmieri and Rickard Rakell.

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.

Ryan Getzlaf missed practice on Saturday as the Ducks gave him a maintenance day off.

Getzlaf is expected to play on Sunday so keep the star center in your lineup. He has 17 goals and 54 points this season.
Feb 15 - 4:48 AM

Ryan Getzlaf won only three of 14 faceoffs on Thursday.

Getzlaf has won 51 percent of his draws this season so this is a bit of an anomaly. The talented center has 17 goals and 54 points this season, which is seventh best in points in the NHL.
Feb 14 - 7:30 AM

Ryan Getzlaf scored a goal and an assist in Sunday's 5-3 loss to Anaheim.

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.

Ryan Getzlaf will be in the Ducks' lineup when they take on the Tampa Bay Lightning on Sunday

Getzlaf was out for the pre-game warmup and now it's confirmed that he will indeed play in the game. The Ducks' captain missed two games because of a lower body injury. Adjust your fantasy lineups accordingly.
Feb 8 - 5:02 PM

Ryan Getzlaf is on the ice for the pre-game warmup on Sunday.

The Ducks are taking on the Lightning in Tampa Bay and Getzlaf is a game-time decision. It looks like the Ducks' captain will indeed play after missing two games with a lower-body injury.
Feb 8 - 4:57 PM

Ryan Getzlaf (lower body) skated on his own Saturday.

That's encouraging news for the center who has missed the last two games with the injury. He will be a game time decision for the Ducks on Sunday. "He felt better," coach Bruce Boudreau said. "I’m more hopeful today than I was yesterday." Getzlaf has been in the early talk as far as the Hart Trophy is concerned. Getzlaf has 50 points in 52 games this season.
Feb 8 - 7:32 AM

At this moment, it looks like Ryan Getzlaf (lower body) remains a game-time decision for Sunday's Anaheim Ducks game against the Tampa Bay Lightning.

On the bright side, it sounds like he's at least making progress. The Ducks have been respectable enough in two games without Getzlaf, but it should go without saying that they're better off with a player who has scored 50 points in 52 games.
Feb 7 - 5:28 PM

Ryan Getzlaf isn't warming up for the Anaheim Ducks on Friday, making it seem very likely that he'll miss his second game in a row with a lower-body injury.

That's a boon to the Washington Capitals, although the Ducks did just fine against the Nashville Predators on Thursday, even without an MVP-caliber asset like Getzlaf in the mix. If he skips the warm-up but somehow plays, it will be noted.
Feb 6 - 6:33 PM

Ryan Getzlaf (lower body) will be a game-time decision for Friday's game at Washington.

He had to pull out of Thursday's meeting against Nashville after he aggravated a lower-body issue during the pregame warmup.
Feb 6 - 1:23 PM

The Anaheim Ducks made Ryan Getzlaf a last-minute scratch in Thursday's game against Nashville.

Getzlaf aggravated a lower-body injury during the pre-game warmup and he was unable to play in the game. The Ducks have announced that he is day-to-day at this point. The 29-year-old is a legitimate MVP candidate this season. He has 16 goals and 52 points in 50 games this season.
Feb 5 - 8:14 PM

Ryan Getzlaf had a goal and an assist in a 5-4 overtime victory over Carolina on Tuesday.

Getzlaf's marker was the overtime winner, giving him four game-winning goals this season. He now has 16 goals and 52 points in 50 contests.
Feb 4 - 4:33 AM

The play of Ryan Getzlaf thus far has him in consideration for the Hart Trophy.

The Hart is awarded to the most valuable player in the NHL and it's hard not to put Getzlaf in the equation as he has 50 points in 46 games and has been a major reason why the Ducks are at the top of the standings with 68 points, despite a multitude of injuries to players like Corey Perry etc. "In here, we don’t want to lose back-to-back games," Perry said. "When we lost a game, that next game we had to be at our best. And most of the time, he was at his best and he really carried the team. That’s what leaders do. That’s why he’s the captain."
Jan 25 - 6:49 AM

Ryan Getzlaf found the back of the net in a 6-3 win against Calgary.

Getzlaf is on a four-game point streak. He has 15 goals and 50 points in 46 contests this season. He's certainly not the favorite in the Art Ross Trophy battle, but he can't be dismissed either. He currently occupies the seventh spot on the leaderboard and is six points behind first place Jakub Voracek.
