Date: Team: Pos:

Jakob Silfverberg (upper body) has been ruled out of Wednesday's contest against Edmonton.

The good news is that he skated without contact Tuesday. Silfverberg has missed two games with an upper-body injury and Wednesday will be the third.

Nate Thompson (Achilles) will head to the AHL on a long-term conditioning assignment.

He resumed skating with the team recently. Thompson hasn't played yet this season after he suffered a ruptured Achilles tendon during an off-season workout.
Jan 24 - 4:32 PM

Stefan Noesen has been placed on waivers.

He has recorded two goals in 12 games with the Ducks this season. If he clears then Noesen will probably be heading to the minors.
Jan 24 - 12:29 PM

Rickard Rakell netted his 20th goal of 2016-17 on Monday.

Rakell had 20 goals in 72 games last season, but he needed just 39 contests to reach the same mark this time around. He's also been hot lately with five markers in his last seven games. His 2016-17 shooting percentage in 22, which isn't something he can likely sustain, so expect him to slow down in the second half of the season.

Monday's game was Randy Carlyle's 300th win the Ducks franchise.

Of course, Carlyle hasn't done that over one stint with the team. He first became the Ducks' bench boss back in 2005, but was fired during the 2011-12 campaign. From there he spent parts of four seasons with the Maple Leafs. Anaheim hired him again over the summer. His total record with Anaheim is 300-196-70.

Anaheim goalie Jonathan Bernier excelled in the Ducks' 3-2 victory over the Jets in Winnipeg Monday night.

Bernier made 31 saves to improve his season record to 8-4-1. Bernier also got his save percentage up to over .900 -- to .902 from the .899 at which he started the night. He improved his goals-against average to 2.89. After difficult seasons with Toronto, Bernier has managed to turn himself into a decent backup this year.
Jan 23 - 11:41 PM

Ryan Getzlaf scored a goal and added an assist in the Anaheim Ducks' 3-2 victory over the Jets in Winnipeg Monday night.

Getzlaf scored his seventh goal of the season on a power play to give Anaheim a 3-1 lead at 8:48 of the third period. He notched his 30th assist of the season on what turned out to be the game-winning goal, scored by Rickard Rakell, at 5:32 of the first period. It was Rakell's 20th goal of the season. Logan Shaw also scored for the Ducks, his second of the season.
Jan 23 - 11:31 PM

Sami Vatanen will be a healthy scratch in Monday's game against the Winnipeg Jets.

Vatanen averages over 22 minutes of ice time per game this season, but the Ducks are clearly trying to send him a message after his brutal performance against the Wild. He finished with a minus-4 rating that game.
Jan 23 - 7:58 PM

Jonathan Bernier will get the nod in Monday's game against the Winnipeg Jets.

Bernier will make his second straight start because John Gibson was dealing with a minor injury, but Gibson is healthy enough to serve as the backup tonight. Bernier has a 7-4-1 record with a 2.95 goals-against-average and a .899 save percentage.
Jan 23 - 7:46 PM

John Gibson (upper body) looked to be fine at practice Sunday.

Gibson left Saturday's game in the first period when the puck caught him high and he did not return. The Ducks did not find the need to recall Jhonas Enroth from the minors so Gibson will be at least good enough to back up on Monday, if not start the game against the Jets. Gibson is 19-10-8 with a 2.27 GAA and a .921 save percentage. He is a must start when between the pipes in your fantasy league.
Jan 23 - 7:11 AM

Corey Tropp was returned to AHL San Diego on Sunday.

The 27-year-old has eight goals and 29 points with the Gulls this season. Unfortunately however he hasn't played in the NHL since 2014-15 when he played 61 games for the Blue Jackets.
Jan 22 - 6:01 PM

Stefan Noesen scored his second of the season Saturday.

The forward was drafted 21st overall in 2011 by Ottawa and came over in the deal that brought Jakob Silfverberg to Anaheim and sent Bobby Ryan to Ottawa. He has been up and down numerous times this season and has two goals in 11 games thus far in the NHL in 2016-17.
Jan 22 - 7:18 AM

Logan Shaw got the opportunity to take over the injured Jakob Silfverberg's spot on a line with Andrew Cogliano and Ryan Kesler.

Shaw played a whopping 17:08 and had four hits while he was a minus-one. The former fourth liner has a goal and two points in 29 games. Silfverberg's injury isn't serious so don't expect Shaw to remain as a top-six forward for long.
Jan 22 - 7:15 AM

Corey Perry scored for the second time this month in a 5-3 loss to Minnesota.

It's hard to believe that the former 50 goal scorer and six-time 30-plus goal getter, has only nine this season in 49 games but that's what he has. He does have 25 assists but that was not what you were expecting when you drafted him so high in your pool. He has just two goals in his last 19 games so a breakout could be expected shortly.
Jan 22 - 7:10 AM

John Gibson left Saturday's eventual 5-3 loss for the Anaheim Ducks vs. the Minnesota Wild when a puck caught him up high early in the first period.

The Ducks don't have much of an update yet, merely deeming it an upper-body injury. Things didn't go well for Jonathan Bernier in Gibson's absence, so keep an eye out for transactions if Gibson can't play for some time. He's been solid in 2016-17, going 19-10-8 with a .921 save percentage, 2.27 GAA and three shutouts.
