Matt Beleskey and Simon Despres will be scratched from Sunday night's tilt with the NY Rangers. Emerson Etem and Clayton Stoner will take their places.

Said Coach Boudreau, "It's tough choices, but they're all playing good right now so as long as we can continue all playing good then we'll maneuver guys in and out of the lineup as it goes." Beleskey is pointless in four games since returning from a shoulder injury, with just seven shots, none in Friday's game, during that time. Beleskey has 21 goals and 30 points in 57 games this season. Despres has produced well for the Penguins and Ducks through 68 games with 21 points, 70 PIMs, 97 blocks, and 212 hits.

Matt Beleskey returned to the Ducks lineup on Friday and was placed on the top line.

Beleskey suffered a shoulder injury and missed 12 games but now gets the top assignment playing alongside Ryan Getzlaf and Corey Perry. "’Skey’s obviously been pretty good throughout this whole season," Getzlaf said. "Found an ability to put the puck in the net when he’s been given the opportunity. We look forward to that. We don’t expect him to come out and turn the team around by any means. He’s been off for a while. We just want him out there to play games again and contribute a little bit." Beleskey has 21 goals and 30 points in 57 games this season.

Matt Beleskey (shoulder) took part in Tuesday's practice.

Mar 11 - 9:10 AM

Matt Beleskey (shoulder) will travel with the Ducks during their upcoming three-game road trip.

Beleskey wasn't initially expected to return until after Anaheim's road trip, but this leaves the door open to him playing sooner. He has 21 goals and 30 points in 56 contests this season.
Mar 6 - 5:48 PM

Matt Beleskey (shoulder) might be ready to return during Anaheim's next homestand.

That could make him available for a game against the Predators on Mar. 15, but his timetable is far from certain. Beleskey has started to shoot the puck again and he can take some one-timers. He hasn't played since Feb. 15 because of a shoulder injury.
Mar 4 - 3:11 PM

The Ducks are getting calls on Matt Beleskey, according to ESPN’s Pierre LeBrun.

Of course, the complication is that Beleskey, an unrestricted free agent, has been important to the Ducks this season, and they have hopes of going far in the playoffs. Beleskey has 21 goals and 30 points, in what has been a career season. The forward is out with a shoulder injury but has recently started to skate again.
Feb 28 - 8:37 PM

Matt Beleskey is nervous with the trade deadline approaching on Monday.

Beleskey is currently out with a shoulder injury but he was having his best NHL season to day before getting hurt as he had 21 goals and 30 points in 56 games. The problem is that Beleskey is eligible to become an unrestricted free agent on July 1 and the Ducks may want to get something for him as he is expected to get a huge raise. "You’re always sweating out the trade deadline days," Beleskey said. "Being unrestricted right now, I’m sure it’s got a little more to it. It’s totally out of my hands at this point so I try not to worry about it." Beleskey has missed six games thus far but the good news is that he has started skating once again.
Feb 28 - 5:37 AM

Feb 25 - 6:38 PM

Matt Beleskey will miss the next two-to-four weeks due to his upper-body injury.

Beleskey sustained the injury during Sunday's game against Washington. He has 21 goals and 30 points in 56 games in 2014-15. With Beleskey unavailable, we might see Jakob Silfverberg work his way onto a scoring line.
Feb 17 - 3:51 PM

Matt Beleskey left Sunday's game against Washington after going into the boards awkwardly.

Beleskey popped right back up on his skates, but he eventually went to Anaheim's dressing room. The team has already announced that he will not return to the game. The 26-year-old is having a career year in 2014-15. He has 21 goals in 56 games this season. We'll have more information as soon as another update is provided.
Feb 15 - 9:14 PM

Matt Beleskey padded his case for a raise in his contract talks on Thursday night, as he lead the Ducks to a 2-1 win over Carolina with a goal and an assist.

Beleskey now has 30 points in 55 games this season and is months away from becoming an unrestricted free agent. Both his points came in the second period, where he assisted on Francois Beauchemin's goal and then scored the game winner three minutes later.
Feb 12 - 10:25 PM

Matt Beleskey and the Ducks are negotiating on a new contract.

Beleskey, who scored his 20th of the season on Thursday, can become a UFA at the end of the season. He is enjoying his breakout season at age 27 and is looking for a multi-year deal. "Talks are continuing, and we are hopeful that we will be able to get something done," Beleskey's agent Murray Kuntz said. "It’s an ongoing process and I honestly can tell you that both sides want to find a solution. As mentioned previously, Matt’s priority is to stay in Anaheim with the Ducks. We haven’t set any deadlines, and to my knowledge neither have they. We will continue to work with the Ducks management in the hopes of keeping Matt in Anaheim for a very long time." Stay tuned.
