Mark Fistric will line up on the third pairing with Hampus Lindholm in place of Colby Robak on Tuesday night.

There isn't a big difference between the two for fantasy purposes, but if you need someone to nab you a couple of hits and blocks for one game, Fistric isn't a bad option. In six games this season he has 15 blocks and 18 hits.

Mark Fistric and Chris Wagner will sit against Edmonton on Friday night.

Mark Fistric is projected to be in the lineup for the Ducks Wednesday night against the Oilers.

Fistric last dressed on December 5th for the Ducks but appears to be inserted into the lineup again Wednesday against Edmonton. Fistric is a shot-blocking machine but rarely racks up the points. He's played in only four games on the year and has yet to record a point. Colby Robak skated with the extras in practice today so it appears he will be the odd man out for the Ducks on defense. Chris Wagner will be the other scratch for the Ducks.

Mark Fistric returned to practice on Saturday for the first time since injuring his back on October 30.

It was a recurrence of an old injury and Fistric will have to deal with his back issues the remainder of his career. "Every day’s a process," Fistric said. "It’s just something I have to live with. It’s just going to be part of my career. Something that’s manageable but has to be paid attention to at all times." He made it through the first practice without a problem but there is no timetable as of yet for his return.
