Simon Despres had a strong debut with the Anaheim Ducks on Tuesday.
Despres was acquired from Pittsburgh on Monday in exchange for Ben Lovejoy. He had an assist and plus-three rating in 20:23 minutes of ice time in his first game with the Ducks. "He's a big, strong kid," Ducks coach Bruce Boudreau said. "And I know he plays with an edge. I watched the Columbus game the other day. Sidney (Crosby) got hit, and he went right after the guy. That's good. We need that ilk of a player." Despres has 189 hits in 60 games in 2014-15. Mar 4 - 4:34 AM
