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.

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.

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.

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.

Jonathan Bernier probably can't expect to get much benefit of the doubt after nights like Saturday, when he had a rough go of things as the Minnesota Wild beat the Anaheim Ducks 5-3.

Bernier made it through 45:38 of game time, allowing four goals on just 20 SOG a week after he generated a 26-save shutout. Gibson allowed a goal on five SOG and may have suffered an injury against the Wild.

The Anaheim Ducks really can't blame Cam Fowler for their 5-3 loss to the Minnesota Wild from Saturday.

Fowler scored a goal and an assist as the Ducks asserted early control over the eventual loss. Fowler's 10 goals match a career-high form his rookie season in 2010-11, while he also has 15 helpers in 2016-17. With 25 points and plenty of time remaining in this campaign, he could very well match or exceed 40 points, a career-high also registered from his first season.

John Gibson will take on the Wild on Saturday.

Not since New Year's Day, or nine games ago, has Gibson allowed as many as three goals in a game. He's gone 6-1-1 since with just nine goals against and two shutouts. Which makes Gibson perhaps the hottest goalie in game right now.
Jan 21 - 1:08 PM

Corey Tropp has been called up by the Anaheim Ducks.

Tropp has eight goals and 29 points in 32 AHL contests this season. The 27-year-old hasn't appeared in an NHL game since 2014-15 when he was with the Columbus Blue Jackets.

The Anaheim Ducks have summoned Shea Theodore.

Theodore has a goal and seven points in 23 games with Anaheim this season. He's been moving between the AHL and NHL very frequently lately with his latest minor league stint only lasting about 48 hours.

Jakob Silfverberg has an upper-body injury.

Silfverberg isn't going to travel with the team to Minnesota, so he won't play on Saturday. He probably will miss Monday's game in Winnipeg too, but it's theoretically possible that he'll meet up with the Ducks before that contest. He has 13 goals and 29 points in 48 contests in 2016-17.
Jan 20 - 1:45 PM

Rickard Rakell is on a three-game point streak.

Rakell has also recorded at least a point in four of his last five games. He's up to 19 goals and 28 points in 37 contests in 2016-17.
Jan 20 - 10:36 AM

Antoine Vermette recorded an assist in the Ducks' 2-1 win over Colorado Thursday night.

Vermette ended a seven-game point drought. He has seven goals and 19 points in 48 contests in 2016-17.
Jan 20 - 10:34 AM

Nashville has shipped Max Gortz to Anaheim for defenseman Andrew O'Brien.

The trade was announced on Thursday night. Gortz has one goal and three assists in 30 AHL appearances this season. The sixth-round selection of the Predators in 2012 has not skated in the NHL yet in his career.
Jan 20 - 9:38 AM

John Gibson picked up win 19 in a 2-1 Ducks win over Colorado on Thursday.

Gibson had to endure a strangely long delay late in the second period but it had little effect on his play in the end. The 22-year-old has seven wins in his last 10 starts and has allowed just five goals total in the last five. He didn't have the best start to the season but is playing as well as his fantasy owners and the Ducks could have hoped for of late. He's 19-10-8 with a 2.26 GAA and .922 save percentage with three shutouts in 37 appearances.
Jan 20 - 3:04 AM

Nick Ritchie scored late to lead the Ducks to a 2-1 win over Colorado in a game that saw 45 minutes in delay because of a broken glass pane.

Ritchie scored his 11th of the season, beating Avalanche goalie Calvin Pickard with a shot from the slot with 2:02 remaining to help the Ducks pull out the win. The former first rounder had three shots and four hits as well. Hampus Lindholm scored the other goal for the Ducks who outshot the Avalanche 36-22.
