Derek Grant found the back of the net in the Ducks' 4-2 loss to Vegas on Wednesday.

Unfortunately Grant was also minus-three so those in leagues that value that category ended up getting a mixed return from him. Grant has five goals and 11 points in 21 contests this season.

Josh Manson picked up a goal in Wednesday's 4-2 loss against the Golden Knights.

Manson failed to light the lamp in his first 17 games this season, but he got a taste of success at the offensive end on Nov. 15 and he liked it. He has scored a goal in three of the past four outings, averaging a point-per-game over his past four. He is still more valuable to fantasy owners in the hits and blocked shots department, and the offense is a nice added bonus.
Nov 23 - 2:32 AM

John Gibson yielded four goals on 49 shots in Wednesday's 4-2 loss against the Golden Knights.

Gibson was the victim of very poor defensive play, and he also allowed one power-play marker. He actually did a very good job or this final score could have been much worse. Anaheim's defense has been abysmal lately, as Gibson has been forced to make 40 or more saves in each of his past three assignments in the crease.

John Gibson will get the start in Wednesday's game against the Golden Knights.

Gibson is coming off back-to-back wins over the Panthers and Bruins. He has a 7-6-1 record with a 2.78 goals-against-average and a .924 save percentage this season.

Cam Fowler (knee) was activated from the Injured List and he went scoreless in 23:25 of ice time on Monday in San Jose.

Fowler took just one shot in 23:25 of ice time, but he was able to post a plus-1 rating with two blocked shots. He missed 12 games due to his knee ailment. The Ducks are starting to get key components back after a tough start due to several injuries. It's safe to get him back into the active lineup as he did not show any ill effects of his injury and played with no apparent restrictions.
Nov 21 - 2:51 AM

Corey Perry posted a goal with an assist, plus-2 rating, four shots on goal and two hits in Monday's shootout victory against the Sharks.

Perry started out rather slowly by his standards, posting three goals with 10 points over his first 15 contests. However, he is making up for lost time over the past three outings, turning in multi-point efforts with a goal and five assists. He was also blanked on the power play through his first 15 games, but he has four assists on the man advantage over the past five outings.
Nov 21 - 2:44 AM

Rickard Rakell posted a goal, an assist, a plus-1 rating, a blocked shot and a hit in Monday's 3-2 shootout win in San Jose.

Rakell has picked up points in three straight, and seven of the past eight outings. He also has goals in back-to-back games for the first time this season. Since Nov. 3 he has posted three goals with 11 points over his past eight outings, including one power-play goal and five points on the man advantage.
Nov 21 - 2:40 AM

Brandon Montour posted two assists with a plus-2 rating, four blocked shots and four hits in Monday's 3-2 shootout win at San Jose.

Montour has picked up the pace with two goals, five points and a plus-3 rating over the past six outings. He is seeing time on the power play lately and enjoying a nice run of success. The rearguard is enjoying a nice two-week run of success and has emerged as a useful option in plenty of fantasy pools.
Nov 21 - 2:33 AM

Reto Berra allowed two goals on 42 shots in Monday's 3-2 shootout victory in San Jose.

The Swiss backstop was sharp in his first start of the season. He has allowed just five goals on 73 shots with a .932 save percentage in parts of four appearances. He is still not someone to rely upon for fantasy purposes, but he has proven to be a decent low-priced DFS option when given the chance to play.
Nov 21 - 2:15 AM

Francois Beauchemin will be a healthy scratch on Monday night as the Anaheim Ducks visit the San Jose Sharks.

The Ducks are playing the second game of a back-to-back, in which Beauchemin does not play. The 37-year-old has just two assists in 18 games so far this season, but has not recorded a point in his last ten games. He is definitely not a fantasy asset in any way as his career winds down. Joining him in the press box tonight will be Korbinian Holzer and Jaycob Megna.
Nov 20 - 8:33 PM

Cam Fowler (knee) will be a game-time decision on Monday night.

Fowler took part in Saturday's practice and he skated again in Monday's optional morning session. He has missed the last 12 games with a knee injury.
Nov 20 - 5:53 PM

John Gibson may get the call to start Monday night.

Gibson rested Monday morning, which means he could possibly play again after he stopped 50 shots in a 3-2 win over the Florida Panthers on Sunday night. If he doesn't get the nod then the Ducks will give Reto Berra his first start with the team because Ryan Miller isn't available due to a lower-body injury.
Nov 20 - 5:49 PM

Brandon Montour's sixth goal of the season was the game winner Sunday.

Montour has enjoyed a nice run of success while Cam Fowler has been out of action but that may change slightly as Fowler is due back this week after missing a month of action. That being said, Montour has a lot of offensive weapons and should still be fantasy worthy in most leagues.
Nov 20 - 5:39 AM

Mike Liambas was called up from the minors on Sunday.

The Ducks recalled the feisty 28-year-old and he played in only his second NHL game of his career. He saw only 3:43 of action but managed seven penalty minutes including a fight with Micheal Haley of the Panthers. Take him only in deeper leagues and if you are in need of an enforcer.
Nov 20 - 2:27 AM

John Gibson stopped the Panthers 50 times in Sunday night's 3-2 victory.

It was one save shy of his career high as the Panthers were rejected time and time again. The win, Gibson's second straight, improves his record to 7-6-1 this season with a .924 save percentage and 2.78 goals against average.
