Rickard Rakell finished the 2017-18 campaign with a team-high 34 goals.

That's also a personal-best for Rakell after he scored 33 goals in 2016-17. During the 2017 playoffs, Rakell continued his regular season success by scoring seven goals and 13 points in 15 games. The Ducks will naturally be hoping for more of the same out of him this year. "I’m feeling pretty good," said Rakell. "I feel really good actually. We played really well and we played our best hockey when it matters the most. Everybody’s super excited to get the playoffs started. I think we’re really positive. It’s been a rough year. But we reached our goal to get into the playoffs and we know that anything can happen. It doesn’t matter really who we’re playing. I think we played well against most teams." For the record, they'll be playing against San Jose.

Rakell is now up to 32 goals this season with 66 points. Nick Ritchie also scored in the win.

Rickard Rakell is pleased that he is not just a goal scorer this season.

Rakell has 31 goals this season to become only the fifth Duck to have back-to-back 30 goal seasons but he also has 31 assists thus far after only 18 last year. "I feel like I’ve been trying to work on being a more complete hockey player and been able to pass the puck more," Rakell said. "And also keep finishing. It’s been up and down this year, and I feel like I’ve had stretches where I’ve been really hot. In the future, I wish I can continue doing that but I feel like I have more in me. As long as I am creating scoring chances for myself and my linemates, I think we can always get better. I’d rather have the title of being a good hockey player and a smart hockey player than just being a goal scorer." He is a must-start.
