The Ducks snapped a four-game losing streak Friday night.

After giving up a season-worst seven goals two nights earlier, Anaheim scored a franchise-record six goals in the second period in a 6-4 win against the Avalanche, the first of which was socred by Daniel Winnik. "It seemed to get everyone going," Winnik said. "It was desperation."

Daniel Winnik scored a goal in Anaheim's 4-3 shootout loss to Montreal Wednesday night.

Winnik now has three goals and 20 assists in 59 games this season. Defenseman Francois Beauchemin and Tim Jackman also scored for the Ducks.

Daniel Winnik could center the fourth line on Sunday after spending most of the season as a third line winger.

The move may be needed as usual center Mathieu Perreault will likely miss the game on Sunday with an apparent arm injury. Winnik has only two goals and 20 assists this season but he has a goal and two assists while the Ducks have been shorthanded so he has value if you use that category.
Mar 2 - 6:06 AM

Daniel Winnik had two assists in the Ducks' 3-2 overtime win on Saturday.

Winnik's been hot lately with nine points in his last nine games. That gives him a goal and 18 points in 40 games, putting him on course to comfortably surpass his career-high of 26 points. He's a decent short-term option in standard leagues while he's hot, but we can't recommend picking him up as a more long-term solution.

Daniel Winnik is battling the flu.

Winnik missed Friday's practice as a result, although he might turn out to be fine for Sunday's game. He has a goal and 14 points in 34 games this season.

Daniel Winnik had three assists in Anaheim's 5-2 win Monday.

Monday's contest aside, Winnik doesn't typically have much fantasy value in standard leagues. He has a goal and 13 points in 33 contests in 2013-14.

Daniel Winnik (illness) was able to play on Thursday.

The Anaheim Ducks are experimenting with using Daniel Winnik as a center.

"Well, the upside of it is many-fold," Ducks coach Bruce Boudreau said. "One is that if he goes back to wing, we know now in a pinch he can play center. It's not just like throwing him in cold. He knows the system. We have the faith in him that he can do it." Regardless of what position Winnik plays, he will almost certainly serve as a bottom-six forward. He isn't expected to have much fantasy value in standard leagues.

Daniel Winnik has a goal and five points in eight games this month.

Winnik has six goals and 14 points in 26 contests in 2013. As you might guess, he's a borderline player in standard leagues and he's not likely to do any better for the remainder of the season.

Daniel Winnik is getting a chance to play on the top line with Ryan Getzlaf and Corey Perry.

That is what scoring five goals in four games will do for you. Coach Bruce Boudreau loves to switch up the lines and putting Winnik up top is his current move. "Once you get to know me, you'll see my lines change a lot," Boudreau said. "I'll usually keep two of them together, but the third guy can change if I feel someone is going or not going." Obviously do not expect Winnik to keep up anything close to this pace but he could pot 15 goals if he can keep it up.

Daniel Winnik is the first player to start his Anaheim Ducks career with back-to-back two-goal showings.

When you think of some of the talent that has been on the Ducks over the years, including Paul Kariya and Teemu Selanne, that's a pretty impressive feat. Winnik has never scored more than 11 goals in a single season and might stay hot for a bit longer, he shouldn't be regarded as a long-term option in standard fantasy leagues.

Perhaps Daniel Winnik is worthy of a spot on your fantasy team, after all.

While the left winger has been perceived generally as a defensive-minded player, he has scored four goals in his first two games with the Ducks this season and lifted Anaheim to a 5-4 victory over the Flames in Calgary Monday night. Winnik became the first player in Ducks history to record multiple-goal games in his first two with the team. Winnik also added an assist Monday. Anaheim captain Ryan Getzlaf scored twice, too, his first two of the season. Also contributing significantly for the Ducks was Saku Koivu, who produced his first goal of 2013 as well as two assists. Andrew Cogliano and Corey Perry also notched two assists apiece. The Ducks had a 3-0 lead in this one before the Flames tied it at 3-3 early in the second period.

Daniel Winnik's debut for the Ducks couldn't have gone much better.

He scored twice while playing on a line with Saku Koivu and Andrew Cogliano. Before you get all excited about Winnik's offensive potential, bear in mind that his season-high point total is 26. He's a good hockey player but has little or no fantasy value.
