Antoine Vermette was a minus-three Sunday.

Vermette was a minus-one in his previous game and is a minus-four this season. Vermette has a huge benefit in some fantasy pools as he is the best in the league this year at the faceoff dot but his four goals and five assists aren't exactly great stats to help you win a pool.

John Gibson was suffering from the stomach flu and diarrhea on Sunday.

Gibson remained on the Anaheim bench while Jonathan Bernier was pummeled in the Ducks net as Calgary put eight past him on only 25 shots. The Ducks next play Carolina at home on Wednesday and coach Randy Carlyle hopes that Gibson is 100 percent to go. We mean in net. Gibson is 8-7-4 with a 2.45 GAA and a .915 save percentage and should be in most lineups this week.
Dec 5 - 6:48 AM

Joseph Cramarossa (lower body) was activated from the IL on Sunday.

Cramarossa returned from his injury and celebrated with a third period fight with Alex Chiasson. He was a minus-one and has a goal and three points in 14 games.
Dec 5 - 2:50 AM

Jonathan Bernier was shelled by the Flames on Sunday night, as the veteran allowed eight goals on 25 shots in an 8-3 loss.

Bernier was enjoying a solid start to the season in his new home in Anaheim, but was brought back down to reality in his tenth game. He falls to 4-2-1 with a 2.77 goals against average and .906 save percentage.
Dec 5 - 1:12 AM

Ryan Kesler notched two goals in an otherwise horrible night for the Ducks, who lost 8-3 to the Calgary Flames on Sunday.

Kesler now has 11 goals and 21 points in 26 games; keeping on pace for his best offensive output since the 2010-11 season when he scored 73 points with the Canucks.
Dec 5 - 12:17 AM

Rickard Rakell has been sidelined with an upper body injury, and will not play on Sunday against the Flames.

No word yet on the type or severity, but the team has stated that he's considered day-to-day. Rakell has been on fire this season with 10 goals and 14 points in 16 games, so be sure to hang on to him.
Dec 4 - 9:08 PM

Once again it'll be Chris Wagner and Korbinian Holzer on the pine as the Ducks take on the Flames on Sunday.

Unfortunately, neither player boasts much fantasy value. Through 21 games thus far Wagner has posted just two goals and 46 hits, not bad rates if you're in need of physical play. Holzer however is still waiting to play his ninth game of the season.
Dec 4 - 8:55 PM

It'll be Jonathan Bernier in the Anaheim's net when the take on Calgary on Sunday night.

Believe it or not, Bernier is having quite the season for himself. Through eight games and seven starts, the backup netminder is 4-1-1 with a 2.06 GAA and a .933 save percentage. He even boasts six Quality Starts, which means you should feel comfortable starting him too.
Dec 4 - 8:49 PM

Joseph Cramarossa (lower body injury) has started skating with the Ducks once again.

Cramarossa was injured a couple of weeks ago as he became tangled up with teammate Rickard Rakell. He had a goal and three points in 13 games so he should not have been in your fantasy lineup.
Dec 4 - 5:28 AM

Jared Boll was back in the Anaheim lineup Saturday and fought Milan Lucic.

That's what Boll is known for and that is the only reason he would be in your fantasy lineup. Boll has one assist in 20 games but does have 36 penalty minutes. Use him at your own discretion.
Dec 4 - 5:26 AM

Rickard Rakell scored his 10th of the season Saturday.

Rakell leads the Ducks in goals despite missing all of October as he held out as a restricted free agent. Rakell had 20 goals last season and certainly seems capable of scoring 25-30 this year.
Dec 4 - 5:21 AM

John Gibson's record moved down to 8-7-4 after his Anaheim Ducks suffered a 3-2 overtime loss to the Edmonton Oilers.

After reeling off two straight wins, Gibson gave up three goals on 32 shots in Anaheim's defeat. So far, Gibson's been up and down, much like the Ducks as a whole.
Dec 4 - 1:06 AM

While his two goals rank as a letdown for some, Ryan Getzlaf keeps generating assists, and Saturday was no different.

Getzlaf's two assists helped the Anaheim Ducks salvage a point from a 3-2 overtime loss to the Edmonton Oilers. With that, Getzlaf has 19 assists and 21 points in 22 games. Anaheim is no longer much of a critical darling, but don't blame the Ducks' captain for the slippage.
Dec 4 - 1:02 AM

Chris Wagner and Korbinian Holzer will both be scratched against Oilers on Saturday.

Through 21 games thus far, Wagner has posted just two goals and 46 hits. Not bad rates on the physical front in you're in the right league. Holzer has just eight games played this season, and does not appear to have much of a role.
Dec 3 - 9:06 PM

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.
