Jakob Silfverberg scored his first goal of the season on Thursday.
Silfverberg was unable to score in his first 19 games of the season and he needed an empty netter to finally break the schneid but they all count, especially in fantasy hockey, so he'll take it. "It wasn’t one of my prettiest goals but it was one of those that felt the best for sure," Silfverberg said. "Obviously it’s been way too long since I scored last. Getting that empty-netter last night was a step in the right direction and hopefully many more will come now." Silfverberg certainly knows about slumps as he went the first 16 games last season without a goal. He has four points in 20 games this season and it's a big disappointment for poolies who took him based on his scoring 18 points in 16 playoff games for the Ducks last season. Nov 21 - 5:28 AM

Although he hasn't been rewarded yet, Jakob Silfverberg is happy with his play as of late.

"I think the last couple of games, I’ve been playing better and kind of playing the way I wanted to," Silfverberg said. "I’m getting more involved offensively and I had some scoring chances. Right now it’s just a matter of getting that first goal. I just got to make sure to get that first one, and once I get that one, I hopefully can keep building on that." Silfverberg has no goals and two assists in 16 games this season. That's pretty disappointing, especially after he recorded 18 points in 16 contests in the playoffs.
Nov 13 - 10:33 AM

Jakob Silfverberg has just two points in 14 games this season.

The Ducks have begun to bounce back from their disastrous October, but that hasn't caused Silfverberg to heat up yet. His slow start is particularly disappointing given his strong showing in the 2015 playoffs where he recorded 18 points in 16 games. He's certainly worth keeping an eye on, but it's looking less and less like this will be a breakout season for the 25-year-old.
Nov 9 - 5:04 AM

Jakob Silfverberg had a team-high four shots on goal in the Ducks’ 2-0 loss to the Sharks on Saturday night.

No offense in this one for the Ducks, who got 27 shots on goal in the loss. He had a minus-one rating in 18:17 of ice time. Most importantly, Silfverberg was back on the ice and feeling no effects after the head hit that landed Raffi Torres with a 41-game suspension.
Oct 11 - 1:23 AM

Jakob Silfverberg (head) will be able to play on Saturday.

Silfverberg didn't experience headaches after absorbing a high hit from Raffi Torres, but he did feel initially foggy. "Of course you’re scared. It’s a hit to the head," Silfverberg said. "You kind of think of the worse but as time went on, I didn’t feel too bad. … But at the time, I was concerned that something really bad had happened." Fortunately, his worst case scenario didn't play out.
Oct 9 - 6:05 AM

Jakob Silfverberg (head) should practice with the Ducks on Wednesday.

Silfverberg got clear to rejoin the Ducks' skate on Tuesday. He was on the ice Tuesday for the first time since absorbing a hit to the head from Raffi Torres on Saturday.
Oct 7 - 8:05 AM

Jakob Silfverberg (head) has clearance to practice with his teammates.

He will take part in the club's next session after skating on his own Tuesday. Silfverberg was hurt in Saturday's preseason game when he received an illegal hit to the head from San Jose's Raffi Torres. Torres was given a 41-game suspension for the check.
Oct 6 - 2:59 PM

Jakob Silfverberg (head) was not allowed to return to Saturday’s game for precautionary reasons.

Silfverberg was hit in the head by Raffi Torres. Ducks coach Bruce Boudreau said the 24-year-old could have returned to the game in the regular season. It’s probably for the best that Silfverberg stayed out as the effect of head injuries are sometimes not felt right away. Either way, this bit of news is nice to hear.
Oct 4 - 12:21 AM

Jakob Silfverberg left Saturday night’s game after taking a blow to the head.

The game is not being televised. According to writers in Anaheim, the Sharks’ Raffi Torres nailed Silfverberg with a shoulder/elbow to the head that also caused him to receive a match penalty and likely a long look from the NHL department of player safety. The 24-year-old Silfverberg had 13 goals and 39 points last season.
Oct 3 - 11:03 PM

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

Jakob Silfverberg has signed a four-year contract with Anaheim.

His new deal comes with an annual average value of $3.75 million. Silfverberg generated 13 goals and 39 points in 81 games last season. He also added 14 assists and 18 points in 16 playoff matches. He could be in store for a breakout year in 2015-16, while playing on the second line alongside Ryan Kesler.
Aug 7 - 3:16 PM

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.
Jul 2 - 6:26 AM

Jakob Silfverberg stretched his point streak to three games on Wednesday night.

He has collected four assists over that span. Silfverberg wasn't credited with a shot in Game 6. Still, he has enjoyed an excellent playoffs so far with 17 points in 15 games.
May 28 - 10:55 AM

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.
May 26 - 10:13 AM

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.
