Mike Santorelli is tied for the team lead in goals with the Anaheim Ducks after 10 games.

Unfortunately Santorelli has only two goals but with the inept Ducks struggling out of the gate, he leads all Anaheim forwards and is tied with Hampus Lindholm as the month of October winds down. The rest of the forwards have only four goals so it's pretty sad at this point to own a Duck in fantasy pools.
Oct 31 - 5:31 AM

Mike Santorelli has made a strong impression with Ducks coach Bruce Boudreau.

Santorelli is playing in his first season with Anaheim. "He's a smart little player," Ducks coach Bruce Boudreau said. "If you give him time and space, he can make plays. He’s got good hockey sense. I've liked what I've seen. The one game that he didn’t play, we were looking to go with a bigger lineup. But right now, he’s earned a spot." Santorelli has a goal and an assist in four games.
Oct 22 - 9:12 AM

Mike Santorelli scored a goal in Anaheim's 4-1 victory over Minnesota.

Santorelli now has a goal and an assist in four games this season. He had 33 points in 2014-15 and he's not likely to finish much above that mark this time around.

In an attempt to boost his offense, Coach Boudreau will bench veterans Mike Santorelli and Shawn Horcoff against the Avalanche on Friday.

Expected to deliver quality depth production, Santorelli and Horcoff have just one point between them while playing less than 24 minutes on average combined. That's no bueno. Chris Wagner and Tim Jackman will join Carl Hagelin to create Anaheim's fourth line.

Mike Santorelli recorded an assist in Anaheim's 2-1 shootout loss to Vancouver.

Oct 13 - 9:38 AM

Mike Santorelli netted his first goal as a Duck of the pre-season in Thursday's 3-0 win over the Avalanche.

The goal came not two minutes after Shawn Horcoff opened the scoring early in the first period, effectively sealing the game away for Anaheim just five minutes in. It was a good showing by the depth center/winger, who also saw over two minutes of time on the penalty kill. A situation in which Santorelli can shine.
Oct 2 - 1:09 AM

Mike Santorelli has signed a one-year contract with the Anaheim Ducks.

He will make $875,000 after he earned $1.5 million last year. Santorelli played in 79 games in 2014-15 with Toronto and Nashville and he posted 33 points.
Aug 17 - 2:30 PM

Don't be surprised if Mike Santorelli isn't back with the Predators next season.

He can become an unrestricted free agent on July 1 and his second stint with Nashville didn't go very well. Santorelli posted one goal and three assists 22 games during the regular season after he was acquired from Toronto. He also had one goal in four playoff appearances. Santorelli's spot on the roster can be filled by a younger player in the Predators' system, so he's likely to look for another team in free agency.
May 27 - 3:59 PM

Mike Santorelli will tag in for the injured Mike Fisher in Friday's Game Two against Chicago.

While Fisher recovers from a lower body injury, Santorelli will see his first career NHL playoff game. Santorelli potted just four points in 22 games after being acquired from Toronto, where he recorded 11 goals and 29 points in 57 games.
Apr 17 - 9:11 PM

Mike Santorelli will be held out of the lineup for Game 1 Wednesday night against the Blackhawks.

Santorelli was having a solid year, posting 11 goals and 29 points in 55 games with the Maple Leafs, but things quickly turned south after he was traded to the Predators. In his final 22 games of the season, he scored just one goal and four points with a minus seven rating. This downfall has led to him being a healthy scratch come playoff time. He could get back in the lineup if the Predators are unable to win a game or two over Chicago early in the series. Viktor Stalberg will dress in place of Santorelli for Game 1.
Apr 15 - 8:31 PM

Mike Santorelli (illness) was back at practice on Monday.

Apr 6 - 6:10 PM

Mike Santorelli is not playing Saturday night because he is sick.

Apr 4 - 8:15 PM

Mike Santorelli's first goal as a Predator came at a clutch time on Thursday night, as he provided the game-winner for Nashville's 3-2 win over Tampa Bay.

It was the veteran's second point since he was dealt to the Predators from the Toronto Maple Leafs. The hard-working forward has 31 points in 74 games this season.
Mar 27 - 1:08 AM

Mike Santorelli has one assist and a minus-4 rating in 10 games with Nashville.

However, he feels good about the way he is playing. "You want to find the back of the net more, but the work ethic has been there, and I think the chances have definitely been there," Santorelli said. "They haven't gone in yet, but at the same, I just have to stick with the process and keep going." Prior to being shipped to the Predators, Santorelli had 11 goals and 29 points in 57 games with Toronto.
