John Gibson will look to stay undefeated against the Oilers on Saturday.

He's 4-0 with just three goals against on 110 combined shots. Can he keep it up? Considering he's 8-7-3 with a 2.43 GAA and .915 save percentage in 18 games appearances this season, we'd roll the dice.

Matt Hackett has undergone shoulder surgery to repair a labrum tear.

Hackett has a 3.35 GAA and .898 save percentage in seven AHL games this season. With him sidelined, AHL San Diego's goaltenders are Dustin Tokarski and Kevin Boyle.
Dec 3 - 10:17 AM

Emerson Etem will undergo knee surgery.

Etem will be sidelined for months as a result. He was assigned to AHL San Diego on Oct. 27 and he's only ended up playing in one game in the minors.

Jakob Silfverberg found the back of the net in Anaheim's 3-1 win over Vancouver Thursday night.

Silfverberg has recorded at least a point in three of his last four games. He has eight goals and 16 points in 24 contests in 2016-17.
Dec 2 - 10:36 AM

Ondrej Kase scored his first career goal in the Ducks 3-1 win over Vancouver on Thursday.

The goal was an ugly one but they all count. This one counted even more as it turned out to be the game winner. Kase banked the puck in off two Canucks from behind the goal-line and past Ryan Miller. The goal gave the Ducks a 2-0 lead. Kase played over 15 minutes of ice-time, the most in single game in his career. He has three points in eight games. Jakob Silfverberg opened the scoring and Andrew Cogliano got the insurance marker late to seal the win.

John Gibson made 27 saves on 28 shots in the Ducks 3-1 win over Vancouver on Thursday.

Gibson pretty much slept walked through the first half of this game with the Canucks not sustaining much pressure in the Ducks zone but he earned the win in the second half. Gibson made his best saves killing consecutive penalties midway through the second period, including a 5-on-3 for 58 seconds. The only goal to get passed him was a Henrik Sedin tap in off a weird bounce off the glass. The 23-year-old is 8-7-3 with a 2.43 GAA and .915 save percentage in 18 games appearances this season.

John Gibson will be in net against the Canucks on Thursday night.

The young netminder has been decent this season, posting a .912 save percentage along with a 2.52 GAA with a 7-7-3 record so far this season. Gibson hasn't been nearly as good away from Anaheim, posting a .901 save percentage and a 2.62 GAA in eight games
Dec 1 - 7:25 PM

Cam Fowler already has seven goals in 23 games this season.

To give that some context, Fowler's career-high is 10 goals set in 2010-11. He has a 14.0 shooting percentage, which is far higher than his career average and something we don't expect him to maintain, but he's still well on his way to setting a new personal best in terms of total goals. "I’ve talked about it all season long," Fowler said. "I’m trying to have more of a shooter’s mentality. By no means am I shooting the lights out. I’m definitely getting some good bounces here and there. I’m kind of a believer that you have to put yourself in the right situations to create your own luck. In previous years I haven’t been shooting the puck enough. Not nearly enough. The more pucks I can direct towards the net, the better off I am. I’m happy to see a few bounce my way right now."

Ryan Kesler registered two assists in Tuesday's 2-1 win over Montreal.

Kesler is on a three-game point streak. He has eight goals and 18 points in 23 contests this season.
Nov 30 - 8:54 AM

John Gibson faced a whopping 40 shots Tuesday night and let only one slip past as the Anaheim Ducks beat the Montreal Canadiens 2-1.

Gibson needed this outing as he was coming off four losses in his last five games. That meant he was probably not on very many fantasy radar screens. Facing 40 shots was the most action he has seen all year with his previous high being a pair of 34-shot efforts. The most recent of these came against the Oilers November 15th, which suggests Gibson is at his best when he gets a chance to limber up in the game.
Nov 30 - 1:41 AM

Rickard Rakell scored in the first and Cam Fowler sunk a puck in the second as the Anaheim Ducks cooled the Atlantic leading Montreal Canadiens 2-1 Tuesday night.

Rakell scored his ninth goal of the season on a power play at 16:50 in the first. Fowler got his seventh goal at 11:56 in the second and both goals provided assists to Ryan Kesler. In a low scoring affair, any of these shooters were beneficial to fantasy players.
Nov 30 - 1:30 AM

Korbinian Holzer and Jared Boll will serve as healthy scratches in Tuesday's game against the Canadiens.

Holzer played in Anaheim's last game, but he'd been scratched in three of their last nine games. This is the second time Boll's been scratched in the last three contests. Neither one of these players has any fantasy value.

John Gibson will tend to the cage on Tuesday when Anaheim hosts Montreal.

He has posted one victory in his last five outings (1-3-1) and he has allowed three goals or more in four of those starts.
Nov 29 - 2:22 PM

Jonathan Bernier is pleased with his role on the Anaheim Ducks.

While we are sure that Bernier would love to be the number one starter, he is happy that coach Randy Carlyle has used him as much as he has. It's likely a no-brainer for Carlyle as Bernier is 4-1-1 this season with a 2.06 GAA and a .933 save percentage. "I think Randy’s been really good," Bernier said. "I’ve been playing pretty much every week. It keeps me in the game, keeps me involved. You want to play every game. But it’s a big change. Instead of playing every three weeks, you play every week. It makes a big difference." Bernier makes a very nice handcuff for John Gibson but he doesn't play enough to own him outright.
Nov 29 - 6:32 AM

Hampus Lindholm has been rounding into form since entering the lineup on November 9.

Lindholm was a restricted free agent and didn't ink his six-year deal until October 27. He missed all of training camp so it's no surprise that he wasn't up to snuff when he returned to the lineup. He concentrated on the defensive part of the game but he has the green light to jump into the play according to head coach Randy Carlyle. "You see a rush up the ice and he’s got that ability to skate the puck," Carlyle said. "You see where he can recover a puck and break out against a strong forecheck. You see all those things. And then you see some other things where you wonder why did he do that? So there’s still some question marks." Lindholm has only two assists thus far, both in the same game against LA a week ago.
