The Anaheim Ducks are second in the league in minor penalties.
Anaheim has accumulated 213 minors, which puts the Ducks behind just the Calgary Flames' 236. The silver lining is that the Ducks also have the fifth best penalty killing percentage at 84.3, but this is still an area they'll want to address. "Obviously there’s long (line) changes and discipline, which have been two issues that we’ve raised and talked to," Ducks coach Randy Carlyle said. "And we will continue because we can’t afford to have stretches in games and more specifically on the road and have success." Feb 7 - 4:09 AM

Monday's game was Randy Carlyle's 300th win the Ducks franchise.

Of course, Carlyle hasn't done that over one stint with the team. He first became the Ducks' bench boss back in 2005, but was fired during the 2011-12 campaign. From there he spent parts of four seasons with the Maple Leafs. Anaheim hired him again over the summer. His total record with Anaheim is 300-196-70.

The Anaheim Ducks have gone five straight games without a power-play goal.

This is a new problem for the Ducks as they have been very effective with the man advantage this season. Even taking their recent drought into consideration, the Ducks rank fifth with a 22.2% conversion rate. Still, it's something Anaheim needs to address sooner rather than later as the power play has been a big part of the squad's offense. In terms of five-on-five play, the Ducks are a middle of the road team with 71 goals in 42 games.
Jan 10 - 4:06 AM

The Anaheim Ducks are 0-7 in overtime this season.

That's not including shootouts where the Ducks are 1-1. All those overtime losses are adding up to a lot of missed points for Anaheim. If they had claimed four of those seven overtime games then Anaheim would be leading the Pacific Division right now. "You’re going to look back at some point and say the points are really going to cost you," Ducks coach Randy Carlyle said. "They don’t cost you right now because (we got) three out of four points on the road. It’s been a big month for us, from a standpoint of lots of road games. Yes, the overtime is a real big downer. But we can’t dwell on that right now. We’re going to continue to try to find ways to change that. Obviously that’s our job as a coaching staff."

Randy Carlyle will return to the Air Canada Centre for the first time since he was fired as the Maple Leafs coach on January 6, 2015.

Carlyle was hired over the summer by Anaheim and we are sure he marked this game down in his calendar when the schedule came out. "I’d be a fool to say it wouldn’t mean something special," Carlyle said. "But the bottom line is it’s what the Anaheim Ducks need. It’s not what Randy Carlyle needs. Team in front of individuals is always going to be. Is it sweeter? Yeah, it’s sweeter but it’s not the focal point in my preparation of our team. It’s what our team needs that’s most important." It should be a good one.

The Anaheim Ducks hired Sudarshan Maharaj to be their new goalie coach.

Maharaj replaces Dwayne Roloson, who stepped down from the organization earlier this off-season. Maharaj was hired by the Ducks in 2013-14 as a consultant for their AHL affiliate. He also spent eight years as a goalie coach and goalie consultant with the New York Islanders. The team also announced that Jean-Francois Labbe will serve as the goalie coach in AHL San Diego.

The Anaheim Ducks were the only team not to do anything during free agent frenzy Friday.

The Ducks failed to ink one player or even re-sign their RFAs. There are still plenty of players on the market so perhaps the Ducks are looking for bargains. They currently are $15.6 million under the cap but need some to re-sign Rickard Rakell and Hampus Lindholm and they will not max out to the cap. Stay tuned as the Ducks currently have fallen behind many teams in the Western Conference.

The Anaheim Ducks went after forwards during the draft after picking defensemen the last few years.

The Ducks thought that there was a lack of depth up front and while their philosophy is to take the best player available, they certainly tried to add to their forward group. "Our depth at the forward prospects is not as strong as it is on defense," director of amateur scouting Martin Madden said. "Last year, a few defensemen fell to us and we just could not pass on them. This year, at almost every pick, we felt there was more value with the forward group." The Ducks had two first round picks and selected Max Jones and Sam Steel, both forwards.

Recently appointed Ducks head coach Randy Carlyle is leaning towards retaining Paul MacLean and Trent Yawney has his assistants.

With MacLean and Yawney's help, the Ducks led the NHL on both the power play and penalty kill in 2015-16. "Am I going to make a change with two people that had that kind of success in the previous year, and their good hockey men and they’re good people and they work hard," Carlyle said. "That’s the way I evaluate people on what they do and how they present themselves day in day out." The future of the Ducks' third assistant, Rich Preston, is less clear.

Randy Carlyle has officially been named the new head coach of the Anaheim Ducks.

Carlyle has the most wins (273) and most games coached (516) in Ducks history. He also won the Stanley Cup as the bench boss of Anaheim in 2007. "A proven winner and motivator, Randy has expertly managed the bench throughout his coaching career," said Ducks GM Bob Murray. "Our expectations are extremely high, and I believe Randy is the coach who can lead us to playoff success and our ultimate goal, the Stanley Cup." Carlyle added that he is happy to be back with the organization and he believes this team "can win immediately."

According to TSN's Darren Dreger, the Anaheim Ducks interviewed Randy Carlyle about their head coaching vacancy on Tuesday.

Carlyle was the head coach in Anaheim from 2005 to 2011. He was behind the bench when the Ducks won the Stanley Cup back in 2007. Carlyle has also reportedly met with the Flames about their head coaching vacancy. Dreger also mentioned that the Ducks could be looking to hire Travis Green, who's the head coach of the Utica Comets (AHL).

The Flames are going to "zero in focus" on their coaching search Monday, and Randy Carlyle will be among those interviewed, according to TSN’s Darren Dreger.

Carlyle last coached the Maple Leafs in the 2014-15 season. He has a 364-260-80 record in 10 seasons, though he did not fare well with the Leafs. The Flames have advanced to the playoffs once in the past seven seasons.

The San Jose Sharks have gained permission to speak with former Maple Leafs bench boss Randy Carlyle.

That doesn't mean the Sharks will hire Carlyle, just that they're considering him along with what is likely many other candidates. Carlyle recently expressed an interest in returning to coaching after being fired by the Leafs during the 2014-15 campaign. He has an impressive 364-260-80 career record, but he struggled over his tenure with the Leafs. It's worth noting though that after Carlyle was fired, the Maple Leafs collapsed entirely under new bench boss Peter Horachek.

Former Anaheim Ducks and Toronto Maple Leafs coach Randy Carlyle knows who he is and what he wants to do, "I'm a coach. I want to coach. That’s what I do." And he wants back in, "In a lot of ways, it's who I am."

Two teams have already opened up potential destinations for Carlyle in Buffalo and Philadelphia, and more could potentially become available in San Jose, Detroit, Boston, and Pittsburgh. Just to name a few. "It's the excitement of sports and competition. I miss it a lot." Carlyle, who turned 59 years old today, is well accomplished as both a player and coach with 647 points in 1,055 career games and a Norris Trophy in 1980-81 as a player. Plus 364 wins over 10 seasons as a coach in the NHL with a Stanley Cup in 2006-07 with Anaheim.
