The Anaheim Ducks will not offer a contract extension to Jason Blake.
Blake is coming off of a five-year/$20 million contract. Obviously he's not going to get an offer even close to that in terms of length or average salary. In fact, the question at this point is if they'll be any interest signing him to a one-way deal. He had seven goals and 12 points in 45 games last season and he'll turn 39 in September.

Jason Blake appears to be fine after a shot ricocheted off his mouth in the third period of Friday night's loss to the Kings.

He took a shift near the end of the contest and seems to be OK. Blake should be available for Sunday's contest against the Predators.

The Anaheim Ducks have a 13-3-3 record in games that Jason Blake has participated in.

When Blake has been injured or otherwise unable to play, Anaheim has a 9-21-6 record. "I think our record with him, you often wonder whether he came in at the right time or he's one of the main reasons it is what it is," Ducks coach Bruce Boudreau said. Personally, we're more inclined to believe that it's mostly coincidence, but Blake has definitely provided them with some much needed depth. Maybe that statistic will help Blake, who currently doesn't have a contract for the 2012-13 campaign.

Jason Blake netted his fifth goal of the season on Sunday.

The goal snapped Blake's seven game pointless slump. Unless you're in a particularly deep league, Blake isn't worth owning.

Jason Blake (foot) returned to action on Friday and played on the third line.

Blake lined up with Nick Bonino and Andrew Cogliano as he played his first game since January 24. Blake missed almost three months of the season after severing the tendon on his foot in October but has not been injury free since then. Blake played 17:24 minutes and saw a lot of time on the first power play unit (5:43 minutes) with Ryan Getzlaf, Corey Perry, Teemu Selanne and Lubomir Visnovsky.

Jason Blake (foot) is healthy enough to play in Friday's game.

Injuries have limited Blake to just 14 games this season. He'll have to try and put that behind him and end the season on a strong note as he is scheduled to become an unrestricted free agent this summer.

Jason Blake (foot) skated on Thursday and could return to the Anaheim lineup as early as Friday.

Blake was injured on January 18th when he took a shot off his foot from teammate Lubomir Visnovsky. He played the next three games before the pain made it too sore to play. "It was a good skate," Blake said. "It was obviously encouraging that I could put my skate on without the pain, or that much pain." Stay tuned.

Jason Blake didn't play on Tuesday because of a foot injury.

Blake missed the Ducks' Tuesday morning skate, which ultimately led to Ducks coach Bruce Boudreau deciding to scratch him in the Ducks' first game since the All-Star break. "He could have played tonight," Boudreau said. "If this was just normal as the season goes, he's playing. But when you have a break of five and six days, you've got to have a good practice before you go." Blake was put on the injured reserve list, but the move is retroactive to January 24th, so he's eligible to return at any time.

Jason Blake returned to action on Sunday January 22.

Jason Blake is listed as probable for Saturday afternoon's contest against the Senators.

He sustained an upper-body injury Wednesday night against the Coyotes when he was struck with a shot and missed practice on Friday. Anaheim coach Bruce Boudreau still believes Blake will be able to suit up against Ottawa, but the Ducks are planning to re-call Kyle Palmieiri as insurance in case Blake can't go.

Jason Blake and Matt Beleskey were held out of practice Thursday to heal some bumps and bruises.

The Ducks play their next game on Saturday afternoon versus Ottawa, so they should be ready to go by then. "If we were to play tonight, they'd probably be questionable," coach Bruce Boudreau said. "But I think another day or two days might [help]. I think they'll both be able to play." Blake has posted a modest three-game scoring streak of late, with four goals and two assists during that span. He has eight points in 11 appearances this year.

Jason Blake recorded two goals and one assist as the Anaheim Ducks beat the Vancouver Canucks 4-2 on Sunday.

All six of Blake's points have come since he returned from a wrist injury. He's not necessarily a high-end option in fantasy, but he was once considered valuable because of his tendency to rack up high SOG totals. (Blake had 10 on Sunday.) Keep an eye on him, if nothing else.

Jason Blake scored his first goal of the season in Anaheim's 5-0 win over Edmonton Friday night.

He is still trying to get his timing back after missing 34 games due to a torn left tendon in his wrist. "Obviously it felt good," Blake said. "It's been a tough go trying to get back into action. Just trying to get my legs underneath me. Missing (34) games, it's not easy. The team's going well. I'm just glad to get that one off my back." Now that he seems to be getting his game back, Blake can be an effective replacement forward should one of your primary fantasy players go down with injury.

Jason Blake is now playing on the third line with Andrew Cogliano and Matt Beleskey.

Blake returned to action this week after missing 11 weeks with a torn tendon in his wrist and lined up with Teemu Selanne and Saku Koivu on the second unit. Coach Bruce Boudreau thought he placed too much pressure on the veteran Blake too soon and changed up the lines putting Niklas Hagman on the second line and dropping Blake down. Look for Blake to eventually return to a top-six role.

Coach Bruce Boudreau said that he played Jason Blake too much on Wednesday in his return after three months from a wrist injury.

Blake was expected to see only 14-15 minutes but saw 16:15 minutes of action. "I thought he gave it everything he had and then he just sort of ran out of gas," coach Bruce Boudreau said. "I looked at the third period when we down to three lines. I’d sit him a couple of shifts because I knew he just had nothing left. At a time when you need to push, you need guys to push. And he didn’t have anything in the tank to push. So it was tough or him." Blake found himself on the third line in practice on Thursday with Nick Bonino and Andrew Cogliano while Niklas Hagman took Blake's spot on the second line alongside Teemu Selanne and Saku Koivu.
