Derek Grant has been a pleasant surprise for the Ducks this season.
Grant was a journeyman center that the Ducks inked to a one-year deal to provide the franchise with some extra depth given that Ryan Kesler wouldn't be ready for the start of the campaign. Further injuries occasionally pushed Grant into a more offensive role though and he's managed to hold his own with eight goals and 20 points in 51 contests. Keep in mind that he had no goals and seven assists in 86 career NHL games coming into this season. "He’s a guy that’s come in and played in a checking role," Ducks coach Randy Carlyle said. "Played a fourth-line role. We’ve moved him up in the lineup, in offensive roles. … You got to take your hat off to a guy like Granter for what he’s accomplished and where he started. The respect he’s earned not only from the coaching staff and management but from his teammates." It'll be interesting to see if the Ducks re-sign Grant given what he's done this season.
