Rickard Rakell bounced back nicely after a rough game on Monday.
Rakell went from being minus-four on Monday to scoring two goals Tuesday night. "I’ve never been a minus-4 before," Rakell said. "It was a very frustrating game for me. I had scoring chances early that I couldn’t score on. I seemed to have every bounce against me. We lost the game and being a minus-4, it’s unacceptable. So it was nice to get on the board early tonight." He has 13 goals, 28 points, and a minus-two rating in 49 contests this season. Feb 10 - 8:25 AM

Rickard Rakell centered the second line in practice Friday.

Rakell had been seeing time with Corey Perry and Ryan Getzlaf but that has all changed with coach Bruce Boudreau changing up his line combinations. Rakell will center Jakob Silfverberg and Jiri Sekac. "You got to try to change some things up," Boudreau said. "That’s what we did. We moved some guys around. And hopefully success in the past will create success in the future." Rakell has some fantasy upside but needs to get it going as the Ducks are in dire need of scoring.

Rickard Rakell seems to have settled in on a line with Ryan Getzlaf and Corey Perry.

Rakell has spent the last 11 games as part of the top unit. Not surprisingly he's done well over that span with four goals and eight points. There's no guarantee that he'll stay in that role despite the length of time he's been there, but if he's available in your standard league then he might be worth gambling on.

Rickard Rakell was inserted back in the lineup and picked up two assists in the Ducks' 4-3 overtime loss to Edmonton on Wednesday.

Rakell was inserted immediately on the top line after missing three games. While he is a center, Bruce Boudreau said he didn't want to breakup any other lines and he was aware that Rakell had played wing in junior hockey. It worked well on this night as he collected two assists and had four shots on goal playing with Corey Perry and Ryan Getzlaf. Perry scored twice and Sean Horcoff scored the other goal for the Ducks in the loss.
