Jakob Silfverberg said that he wasn't worried about negotiating a new contract so late into the off-season.
"No matter who you are, you always want to get it out of the way," Silfverberg said. "We had good talks throughout the summer. … The same thing happened last year. I ended up signing pretty late. I knew the talks were going in the right direction, so I wasn’t nervous about not getting anything done. "We were pretty much on the same page throughout the whole negotiation." Silfverberg signed a four-year contract worth $3.75 million per season. Aug 8 - 9:07 AM

The Anaheim Ducks and Jakob Silfverberg continue to talk about a contract extension.

Silfverberg is a restricted free agent and the Ducks want him back in their lineup after an outstanding playoffs where he had four goals and 18 points in only 16 games. Silfverberg struggled in the regular season with only 13 goals and 39 points in 81 games but the post-season showed many what kind of hockey player he is capable of being.

Jakob Silfverberg collected two assists in Game 5 to help give Anaheim get a 5-4 overtime victory over Chicago.

He caught the Blackhawks on a line change in overtime to send Ryan Kesler and Matt Beleskey on an odd-man rush and they came up with the game winner. Earlier in the match, Silfverberg directed a shot toward the goal, which went off Kesler and into the net. He has amassed 12 assists and 16 points in 14 playoff contests this year.

Not a huge surprise, but note that the Anaheim Ducks are sticking with their same lines as they face the Chicago Blackhawks in Game 4 on Saturday.

You can stick with lines that work (or avoid ones that don't work) in daily fantasy and other formats.

Jakob Silfverberg produced a goal and an assist in Anaheim's 4-1 win over Chicago in Game 1 of the Western Conference Final.

He picked up an assist on the opening goal of the contest when defenseman Hampus Lindholm scored. Silfverberg's fourth marker of the postseason was deposited into an empty net to help the Ducks secure a 1-0 lead in the best-of-seven series. The 24-year-old winger is tied for second in the playoffs in scoring with 13 points in 10 matches.

Jakob Silfverberg is perhaps the most surprising name on the NHL's top-10 scoring list for the playoffs.

Silfverberg has three goals and 11 points in nine postseason contests. That's quite the step up from posting 39 points in 81 regular season contests. "He's been a difference-maker in all the games," Ducks Coach Bruce Boudreau said. "We knew he was capable, but he's gotten hot at the right time and that's great." The Ducks just have to hope he can keep it up against the Chicago Blackhawks in the Western Conference Final.

Jakob Silfverberg recorded a pair of assists in Game 5's overtime win against Calgary.

Both of his helpers came on the power play on goals by Ryan Kesler and Matt Beleskey. Silfverberg posted four shots in the match and he logged 22:03 of ice time. He has three goals and 11 points in nine postseason games.
May 11 - 10:06 AM

Jakob Silfverberg has been a scoring machine in the post-season with three goals and nine points in eight games.

This is the Silfverberg the Ducks thought they were going to get almost two years ago when they sent Bobby Ryan to the Senators as Ottawa also gave them Stefan Noesen and a first round pick who turned into Nick Ritchie. But 23 points in 52 games last season and 13 goals and 39 points in 81 games this year did not put fear into the opponents like this post-season has done. Look for the 24-year-old to take his game to the next level in 2015-16.
May 9 - 5:53 AM

Jakob Silfverberg opened the scoring in Friday's Game Four with a power play goal as he beat Karri Ramo over the shoulder short-side just 3:58 into the game.

The goal was Silfverberg's third of the postseason, and his ninth point in eight games. Later in the third period, off a similar shot to his goal, Matt Beleskey was able to tap home the eventual winner on the power play as well. Silfverberg also contributed a block and two takeaways along with his five shots in 19:14 of work.
May 9 - 1:19 AM

Jakob Silfverberg feels the Ducks lost on Tuesday in part because they got too passive.

"We had the lead and I think we tried to defend too much and they just caught up with us," Silfverberg said. "If you try not to get scored on you eventually will get scored on. We've got to get back to that forecheck and work hard and try and score goals instead of this backing off and letting them come to us. Play a little bit more aggressive and I think we'll be fine." The Ducks led 2-1 and 3-2 in Tuesay's contest against Calgary, but Johnny Gaudreau scored with 20 seconds left in the third to tie it for the Flames and then Calgary won it in overtime. Anaheim still has a 2-1 series lead over Calgary in the second round.
May 8 - 9:37 AM

Jakob Silfverberg clicked with Ryan Kesler during Anaheim's first-round series against Winnipeg.

"He's just a smart player," said Kesler after Game 3. "We read off each other well, and last night we found each other. I think the last couple of games we've been playing well together, and hopefully it sticks." Kesler scored a pair of goals on Wednesday to help the Ducks close out the series and Silfverberg set up the second one. He registered two goals and four assists in the series
Apr 23 - 5:26 PM

Jakob Silfverberg recorded his third career three-point game, and first in the playoffs, with a goal and two assists in Monday night's 5-4 overtime victory over the Jets.

Silfverberg traded game-tying goals and primary assists with Ryan Kesler in the second and third periods, plus added an assist on Cam Fowler's buzzer beater in the first to tie it at one. All in all, it was a great game for the young forward who now has six goals and 10 points in 28 career playoff games.

Jakob Silfverberg netted the game-winning goal in a 2-1 triumph against the Jets on Saturday night in Game 2 of their first-round series.

Patrick Maroon potted the other goal at 10:43 of the third period on the power play to begin the third-period rally. The Ducks head to Winnipeg with a 2-0 series advantage.
