With John Gibson sidelined, look for Frederik Andersen to own Anaheim's crease with Anton Khudobin as his back up.

Here goes another prime opportunity for Andersen to prove his mettle. He's 12-8-6 this season, going 7-0-1 over his last 10 games. Combine that with his .924 overall save percentage and 2.30 GAA, Andersen ought to provide a lot of value for poolies.

In the wake of John Gibson's injury, Anton Khudobin has been summoned up to the bigs by Anaheim.

Still no word yet on the type or extent of Gibson's ailment. Khudobin meanwhile has gone 7-6-1 with AHL San Diego with a .906 save percentage and 37 goals against. We would expect Khudobin to back up Frederik Andersen while up with the Ducks.

Ryan Getzlaf fractured his nose on Thursday but had no trouble playing Saturday.

Getzlaf had his beak busted in the third period by Dalton Prout of the Blue Jackets during a scrum. Prout was quite the Duck killer as he fought and broke the jaw of Chris Stewart earlier in the game. "Battled with it tonight," said Getzlaf who wore a cage and a full shield to protect his nose. "It’s just different. When you’re out there, you feel like somebody’s on you the whole time. Like if somebody’s right there. So my vision isn’t as good."

Ryan Garbutt has found his transition from the Chicago Blackhawks to the Anaheim Ducks a little hard.

Garbutt loves the style of play of the Ducks and has three goals and four points in nine games. "I think it’s been a good fit for sure, maybe a little bit more my style," Garbutt said. "It wasn’t an easy transition. Coaches here made it really easy to move in and play your game. It’s a fun team to play for." His value is not big in fantasy but he can contribute.

Jakob Silfverberg scored once on Saturday.

It was his seventh goal of the campaign and first in nine games. Silfverberg has 19 points in 54 games which is weak. He had 11 points in an eight game span in mid-January so the rest of his season has been a disaster. That being said, he now has two points in two games.

Ryan Getzlaf scored the game-winning goal in overtime for the Ducks in their 3-2 triumph over the Blackhawks on Saturday night.

He also had an assist on David Perron’s tally. It wasn’t long ago when many thought the Ducks were toast. Now they are second in the Pacific Division and looking like a bonafide contender, seven points back of the Kings. Getzlaf has points in four games in a row. He has six goals and 42 points. Jakob Silfverberg got the other goal. Cam Fowler had two assists.

John Gibson left Saturday night’s game after colliding with Richard Panik.

He suffered an upper-body injury. The two players collided in the second period, and Frederik Andersen entered in the third. Gibson made 16 saves on 17 shots. He has a 2.11 GAA and .917 SV%. Andersen stopped the five of six he faced.

Chris Stewart (jaw) is expected to miss at least the rest of the Ducks' road trip.

If that's the case, then Stewart will miss a minimum of four games and won't return until Feb. 21 at the earliest. He has been sent back to Anaheim to be examined for what might be a broken jaw.
Feb 12 - 5:22 PM

Chris Stewart (jaw) has left the Ducks so that he can be examined on Sunday.

A recent report suggested that Stewart suffered a broken jaw when he fought Dalton Prout on Thursday. We might get details regarding the injury from the team after this examination, but for now Anaheim is calling it an upper-body injury.

That would have happened during his sparring match with Dalton Prout Thursday night. Stewart didn't play after that fight, but Anaheim hasn't offered an update on the forward yet. He has eight goals and 18 points in 47 games this season.
Feb 12 - 1:22 PM

Jakob Silfverberg registered an assist in a 4-3 shootout loss Thursday night.

Silfverberg has had a rough season, but it looked like he was finally breaking out of it in mid-January when he had three goals and 11 points in the span of eight games. He followed that up with a five-game drought that ended on Thursday though. Silfverberg now has six goals and 18 points in 53 contests this season.
