Rickard Rakell scored and added an assist in a 4-1 Ducks win over Colorado on Thursday.

His goal at 6:15 of the first period broke a 1-1 tie and ended up the game winner. It broke a five game goal-less drought for Rakell who also picked up an assist. He's up to 17 goals already this season. His career high is 20 that recorded last season. Ryan Kesler also picked up his 17th of the season while Corey Perry and Jakob Silfverberg also added tallies.
Jan 13 - 12:57 AM

Rickard Rakell is back at center after spending most of the season on the wing.

Coach Randy Carlyle thinks that Rakell should be in the middle and with Ryan Getzlaf out of action the past three games, it was the perfect time to make the move. "It’s been pretty fun actually," Rakell said. "I’ve had the puck more. Even though I think we’re still creating some chances, we could be more productive. We’re just trying to get better going forward. It’s been going up and down through the whole season. Just trying to get better." Rakell has 16 goals and 23 points in 31 games and is a minus-one so he should be in someone's lineup in most pools.

Rickard Rakell practiced at center on Wednesday morning.

Rakell had been playing left wing, but the Ducks are looking to shake things up. Head coach Randy Carlyle also split up Ryan Getzlaf and Corey Perry during practice. It'll be interesting to see if Carlyle will actually use his "new" lines in Thursday's game against Calgary.

Rickard Rakell scored the Anaheim Ducks first and last goals of the night, but it was not enough to stem a 6-4 loss to the Detroit Red Wings Saturday.

Rakell’s first goal came 3:41 minutes into the first and was followed by another for Shea Theodore at the 10:17 minute mark. The Ducks held their advantage well into the second until the Red Wings scored the first three of four unanswered goals. Rakell now has 14 goals for the season, which gives him a two-goal advantage over teammate Ryan Kesler.

Rickard Rakell scored a goal and an assist in Thursday's 4-3 win over the Boston Bruins.

Rakell picked up an assist on Josh Manson's go-ahead goal (3-2) in the second period and he scored the game-winning goal later on in that frame. He's now riding a five-game point streak. Rakell has 12 goals and seven assists in 20 games in 2016-17. His production has been a pleasant surprise.

Rickard Rakell (upper body) is questionable to play Wednesday.

"I'm starting to feel better," Rakell said after skating on Tuesday. "So I'm taking it day by day. Just hoping it feels even better tomorrow." Rakell could be ready to play against Carolina after he sat out Sunday's game with an aggravated upper-body injury. He has found the back of the net in six of his last eight games and he wants to get back into the lineup as soon as he can.

Rickard Rakell has been sidelined with an upper body injury, and will not play on Sunday against the Flames.

No word yet on the type or severity, but the team has stated that he's considered day-to-day. Rakell has been on fire this season with 10 goals and 14 points in 16 games, so be sure to hang on to him.

Rickard Rakell scored in the first and Cam Fowler sunk a puck in the second as the Anaheim Ducks cooled the Atlantic leading Montreal Canadiens 2-1 Tuesday night.

Rakell scored his ninth goal of the season on a power play at 16:50 in the first. Fowler got his seventh goal at 11:56 in the second and both goals provided assists to Ryan Kesler. In a low scoring affair, any of these shooters were beneficial to fantasy players.

On Tuesday night, Rickard Rakell scored the tying goal against the New York Islanders at the 9:08 minute mark of the third and had another goal in the fourth round of the shootout, but it was not enough to stem a 3-2 loss.

Rakell was poised to be the star of the game until his shootout goal was answered by John Tavares. Fantasy owners will take heart in the fact that this was the third straight game in which he has scored a goal and the fourth consecutive contest with a point. Rakell now has 11 points for the season.

Rickard Rakell found the back of the net in the Ducks' 3-2 win over New Jersey Thursday night.

That gives Rakell five goals and nine points in nine games this season. Although he's expected to slow down as the season drags on he might end up breaching the 50-point mark despite missing the beginning of the campaign as a contract holdout.
