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.
