Ryan Getzlaf scored a goal and registered an assist in Anaheim's 2-0 win against Dallas on Wednesday.
Getzlaf's goal was a shorthanded marker in the third period. He has eight goals and 38 points in 38 contests this season. It's a shame that he missed a significant chunk of the season, but if he can stay healthy in 2018-19 then it wouldn't be surprising to see him go back above the 70-point milestone. Feb 22 - 4:38 AM

Ryan Getzlaf isn't happy with the officiating that the Ducks have been dealing with this season.

"It’s a frustrating time," Getzlaf said. "As players, we’re not sure what penalties are and what they aren’t. As the ebbs and flows of the game (go), it’s hard to understand what’s going on all the time and maintaining what we want to do to compete. I didn’t feel like anybody was in danger at any point on the ice but somehow there was 10 penalties or whatever there was. That’s not hockey. And that’s not allowing players to play and be themselves and compete." Getzlaf's reference to 10 penalties was in regards to how many minors (it was actually 11) that Anaheim took on Saturday, but that contest was hardly an isolated incident for the Ducks. The Ducks' 219 minor penalties this season are the highest in the league, so it's not surprising that the Ducks would be frustrated there. Anaheim is also just middle of the road when it comes to killing penalties too, so the Ducks either need to improve on special teams or find a way to cut down on the penalties.

Ryan Getzlaf believes that the time he missed this season due to injury will ultimately make him better rested for the playoffs.

"I think so," Getzlaf said. "I’ve only played 25 games or something. I don’t know if we’ll really see the results of that until come playoff time again, where you’re able to have the energy to go the distance and play a lot of minutes in those key situations." Getzlaf was forced to miss 19 games due to a facial fracture. He's excelled when healthy with six goals and 31 points in 27 games.

Ryan Getzlaf finished with a goal and two assists in Tuesday's 6-3 victory against the visiting Rangers.

The goal was just the sixth of the season for Getzlaf, who missed about six weeks due to a fractured zygomatic bone in his face. He has made up for lost time, posting four goals with 11 points across nine outings in January, and five goals with 19 assists over his past 19 outings. Needless to say, he has re-emerged as a fantasy must-start option across all formats.

Ryan Getzlaf scored a goal and picked up an assist in a 6-2 loss to the San Jose Sharks.

The Sharks appeared to lose Getzlaf who found his way to the front of the net for the easy tap-in off a feed from Ondrej Kase. Since Getzlaf has returned from his facial injury, he has picked up 21 points in 18 games. He's still available in 10% of Yahoo leagues and should be scooped up if he is lying around on your waiver wire. The 32-year-old's assist came on a power play goal scored by Rickard Rakell.
