Stoner suffered the injury on Saturday against the Kings and was a late scratch on Wednesday. Stoner has played 40 games this season and the defensive defenseman has only two assists with 37 penalty minutes so his fantasy value is zero in traditional pools. Jan 24 - 5:45 AM

The Anaheim Ducks have been pleased with the play of stay at home defenseman Clayton Stoner.

The off-season signing of the blueliner raised a few eyebrows as Stoner inked a four-year/$13 million deal but not with Bruce Boudreau and the Ducks. "I think he’s done really good," Boudreau said. "We didn’t expect him to put up Sami Vatanen point numbers. But that’s fine. He has fought the tough guys. He plays a solid game. We use him in every situation except power play. He’s been a great teammate. And when he’s on his game, which has been most of the time, he’s a really good puck mover. I’m surprised that he doesn’t have any more points than he does." Stoner has had as many bouts this season with the mumps as assists (1) so his fantasy value is zero but that's not why the Ducks got him.

Clayton Stoner (illness) will probably rejoin the Ducks on Friday.

Stoner, who had some mild mumps-like symptoms, was able to skate with the Ducks on Tuesday. "I'm feeling better," Stoner said.

Clayton Stoner (illness) skated before his teammates on Monday, but is still being kept away from the Ducks.

Clayton Stoner will miss Sunday's tilt with "mumps-like symptoms," the Ducks have announced.

Clayton Stoner was unable to make it through a full practice on Saturday due to an illness.

In 20 games, the former Minnesota Wild blueliner has yet to pick up a point and is a minus-four with 16 penalty minutes. Needless to say, he has no fantasy value at this time and consider him a game-time decision for Sunday's matchup.

Clayton Stoner is likely to start the season as part of the third defensive pairing with Sami Vatanen.

Stoner signed a four-year deal on free agent frenzy day July 1 after spending his whole career with the Minnesota Wild. Although he does not consider himself a fighter, Stoner certainly can take care of himself and his teammates in that area as he had 84 penalty minutes in 63 games. He is not much of a scorer with only five points last season but he is capable of 100-125 hits and 60-75 blocked shots if he can stay healthy.
