Jakob Silfverberg scored on Wednesday for the first time this season.

It took the second line winger 17 games to get off the schneid and the pressure should be off the winger. "It was a good feeling to get that first one out of the way," Silfverberg said. "Yeah, hopefully it doesn’t take 16 more games to get the second one." Coach Bruce Boudreau praised Silfverberg's work on the defensive side of the game as he considers the trio of Matt Beleskey, Ryan Kesler and Silfverberg to be a shutdown line. This doesn't help fantasy owners except in the plus/minus category.

Jakob Silfverberg had an assist in a 3-2 shootout loss to Arizona Friday night.

Silfverberg has six assists in 15 points this season. The 24-year-old has some untapped offensive upside, but we can't recommend holding him in standard leagues in the hope that he'll get better as the season progresses. It's even hard to justify sticking with him in most keeper leagues as there are plenty of more desirable prospects out there.

Jakub Silfverberg has yet to find the back of the net in 12 games this season.

The 24-year-old Swede came into this season with 20 career goals in 100 NHL games and while he has four assists, he is still looking for his first goal. . "No matter what, you want to get that first one. But you don’t get that frustrated or think too much about it when the team still wins," Silfverberg said. "Of course, you want to get that first one out of the way and hopefully a lot more after that. ... It’s just a matter to take my time when I get the chance and make sure to put it in." It does help that he has been solid defensively but not in fantasy pools.
Nov 2 - 3:23 AM

Jakob Silfverberg picked up an assist in the Ducks' 4-0 victory on Sunday.

Silfverberg has three points in six games this season. He's been averaging 16:44 minutes per game so far in 2014-15, which is up from 14:15 minutes per contest last season.
Oct 20 - 7:50 AM

Jakob Silfverberg registered two assists in Anaheim's 5-1 win on Monday.

It was Silfverberg's first and second points of the season. He's got the potential to breakout after recording 23 points in 52 games last season, but he's far from a safe bet to do so.
Oct 14 - 9:45 AM

Jakob Silfverberg has been playing on the Ducks' second line throughout the preseason.

Silfverberg had 10 goals and 23 points in 52 games last season, but the 23-year-old forward is capable of significantly more. He's not the most attractive late round gamble in standard league drafts, but Silfverberg is at least worth keeping an eye on during October.
Sep 29 - 9:38 AM

Jakob Silfverberg signed a one-year contract with the Ducks that will pay him $850,500.

Silfverberg actually turned down that amount back in June when it was his qualifying offer. He will have arbitration rights next summer as a restricted free agent if an extension isn't agreed to before then. Silfverberg got off to a good start before he suffered a broken hand. He ended up scoring 10 goals and 23 points in 52 games. Silfverberg will try to earn a spot on the second line this campaign.
Aug 15 - 2:56 PM

Jakob Silfverberg found the back of the net in Anaheim's 4-3 win against Los Angeles on Monday.

Silfverberg's goal proved to be the game-winner. From an offensive perspective, he's been fairly quiet in the playoffs with two goals and no assists in 11 contests.
May 13 - 5:49 AM

Jakob Silfverberg scored his seventh goal of the season on Sunday in a 5-3 win.

It was Silfverberg's first goal since January 15 as he has been a healthy scratch in four of the 12 games played going into Sunday's action. Silfverberg has a lot of offensive upside but is still young and learning his way in the NHL. He now has 16 points this season. Do not forget about him next season.
Mar 3 - 6:40 AM

Jakob Silfverberg will likely return to the Anaheim lineup on Sunday and may line up at center between Patrick Maroon and Teemu Selanne.

Silfverberg sat out on Friday as he just came back from winning a silver medal at Sochi. He said that he hasn't played center in six years but the 23-year-old found himself there at practice on Saturday. He has six goals and 15 points in 32 games heading into action on Sunday but has only one point in his last eight games.
Mar 2 - 5:59 AM

Jakob Silfverberg didn't get to play much in Sweden's win over the Czech Republic on Wednesday.

He concluded the match with a mere 2:34 of ice time. Sweden also limited Henrik Tallinder's playing time to just 3:39, but he suited up as the team's seventh defenseman.
Feb 12 - 4:03 PM

Jakob Silfverberg scored a goal and registered an assist in Anaheim's 9-1 win against Vancouver on Wednesday.

Silfverberg has recorded at least one point in five of his last seven contests. He has six goals and 14 points in 24 games this season.
Jan 16 - 8:49 AM

Jakob Silfverberg will stay on Anaheim's top line for Friday's game.

Silfverberg got a shot with Ryan Getzlaf and Corey Perry on Tuesday and he finished that contest with an assist and plus-two rating. "I don't know how long it'll last," Ducks coach Bruce Boudreau said. "I thought they played pretty good together the other night. Want to try them again." Silfverberg would definitely be worth owning in standard leagues if he ends up earning a permanent spot on the top line.
Jan 3 - 9:20 AM

Jakob Silfverberg replaced Dustin Penner on the Ducks top line Tuesday.

The winger played alongside Ryan Getzlaf and Corey Perry as Dustin Penner was made a healthy scratch. Silfverberg picked up one assist and was a plus-two as he also saw first line power play time. Silfverberg has five goals and nine points in 18 games in an injury riddled season with a plus-six rating but if he remains on the top unit with Getzlaf and Perry, his fantasy value will skyrocket.
