Hampus Lindholm won't attend Ducks training camp until he signs a new contract.

Lindholm is reportedly looking for an eight-year deal worth more than $48 million dollars. The 22-year-old had 10 goals and 28 points in 80 games last season. "Our plan is to report to the team once we have a contract signed," agent Claude Lemieux said. "Until then Hampus is training in Sweden." This isn't shocking news, but it would be surprising to see the Ducks start the regular season without Lindholm on their blue line.

Hampus Lindholm is reportedly looking for a deal in excess of $48 million over eight years.

There might be a significant gap between Lindholm and the Ducks as Anaheim is believed to be seeking an annual cap hit in the $5 million to $5.4 million ranger, which is where Morgan Rielly and Seth Jones are respectively. Lindholm had 10 goals and 28 points in 80 contests last season. He's a restricted free agent.

Rickard Rakell is reportedly seeking a contract in the ballpark of $24 million over six years.

Rakell had 20 goals and 43 points in 72 contests last season. The Ducks are believed to be interested in a long-term deal, so it might not be the term so much as the total value that's the sticking point. He's a restricted free agent and with the preseason already underway, obviously the sooner Rakell and the Ducks can find a common ground, the better it will likely be for both sides. That being said, there's an additional complication as he's recovering from an appendectomy.

David Booth got an audition on Wednesday in Anaheim's preseason contest against Los Angeles.

Unfortunately for Booth, it was a rough game for the Ducks as they lost 6-1. Booth logged 13:36 minutes and registered three shots along with a minus-one rating. He's trying to make the team after agreeing to a PTO. "It’s different," Booth said. "You’re at a different stage now and you have to approach it differently. I think nowadays you come into camp and guys are in shape and ready to play. So you have to be right there with everyone. It’s just a matter of getting that timing back." Booth failed to earn a spot with the Florida Panthers last season and instead went to the KHL where he recorded six goals and 16 points in 23 games.

Brandon Montour scored 8:05 minutes into the third period to save the Anaheim Ducks from a shutout. They lost a 6-1 contest to the Los Angeles Kings Wednesday night.

Montour found the back of the net 12 times for the AHL San Diego Gulls last year and had 45 assists, but he failed to get any assistance Wednesday night. His wrist shot goal went into the Kings’ net unaided.
Sep 29 - 1:36 AM

Dustin Tokarski and Yann Danis gave up three goals apiece in Wednesday night’s 6-1 loss of the Anaheim Ducks to the Los Angeles Kings.

The losing goalies had a busy night. Tokarski fended off 25 shots with Danis turning away 17. Neither netminder was able to crack the 900 mark in save percentage, but Tokarski came closest with a 0.893. At that, he was slightly more productive than last year with the Montreal Canadiens where he netted only a 0.878.

Rickard Rakell hasn't been able to skate or train, but he is progressing from the complications he sustained from an appendectomy.

He had surgery in mid-September to remove some scar tissue and could be back skating within a week. Rakell may not be ready for the start of the regular season, though. He also still has to work out a new contract with the Ducks and TSN's Bob McKenzie speculates that it could be a six-year deal at somewhere below $4 million AAV.

The Anaheim Ducks have removed Antoine Samuel from their training camp roster.

Samuel had a 3.62 GAA and .887 save percentage in 24 QMJHL games last season. He was never drafted, but had joined Anaheim's camp on a tryout basis.
Sep 28 - 4:26 AM

Alex Dostie has been returned to QMJHL Gatineau.

Dostie was participating in the Anaheim Ducks' training camp. He had 25 goals and 73 points in 54 QMJHL contests in 2015-16.

Zack MacEwen has been released from his training camp tryout.

MacEwen had 40 points and 56 penalty minutes in 66 QMJHL games in 2015-16. The 20-year-old is an undrafted free agent.

Ryan Kesler doesn't feel the 2016 World Cup compares to the Olympics.

"It was weird," Kesler said. "I thought there’d be more of a buzz in Toronto. There wasn’t … It just didn’t seem like there was a buzz. If you didn’t know what was going on, you wouldn’t even know teams were playing. That’s the only thing I was really disappointed with." By contrast, Kesler considered the Olympic experience "unbelievable." Of course, the World Cup and Olympics aren't mutually exclusive, but there is uncertainty as to whether or not the NHL will participate in the Olympics in addition to the World Cup.

Matt Hackett gave up one goal on 17 shots Tuesday night in the Anaheim Ducks 2-1 loss to the Arizona Coyotes. Teammate Kevin Boyle turned away 18, but let one get past him into the net.

The Ducks were playing their first preseason game against a slightly more limber Coyotes’ team who played to a split decision during a split squad meeting with the Los Angeles Kings Monday night. Boyle has 26 NHL games under his belt with four wins and 17 losses.
