Bernier just wasn't the better Jonathan in the latest Battle of LA county on Saturday.

He stopped 29 of 32 shots, including all nine on special teams. However he was beaten three times in the final frame after carrying an early lead for most of the game as the Ducks fell to the Kings, 4-1. Bernier is now 9-6-2 with a .901 save percentage and a 2.94 GAA.

Jakob Silfverberg is picking up a bit of steam.

The talented winger now has assists in consecutive games, including the helper he tallied in Saturday's 4-1 loss to the Kings. For the season he has 21 assists and 38 points in 60 games. He needs five assists and one point to match his career highs.
Feb 25 - 7:44 PM

Ryan Kesler now has points in two straight games.

He picked up his 27th assist and 46th point of the season during Saturday's 4-1 loss to the Kings. He had gone four games without a point prior to the mini-streak, so perhaps he isn't quite slowing down just yet.
Feb 25 - 7:43 PM

Andrew Cogliano picked up his third goal over his last five games during Saturday's 4-1 loss to the Kings.

The marker gives the veteran forward 14 goals and 28 points through 63 games this season. Two more points will have him reach the 30-point plateau for the sixth time in his career.

Brandon Montour has been returned to AHL San Diego on Saturday.

Commissioner Gary Bettman has decided to uphold Antoine Vermette's 10-game suspension.

After hearing the appeal of Vermette, the Ducks and the Players' Association, Bettman wasn't swayed to move from a clearly stated rule that if you abuse the refs physically in any way, you're banned for at least 10 games. Vermette is eligible to return March. 12th

Ducks GM Bob Murray might be done making moves after acquiring Patrick Eaves on Friday.

The Ducks could afford to part ways with a young defenseman to further bolster their offense if they wanted to, but that doesn't mean that they will at this time. "I don’t feel I have to make another move, first of all," Murray said. "Yes, we have depth on defense. We have good young defensemen coming. I don’t have to do anything at this point in time with my defense. I don’t have to do a thing. I may have to address some situations at the expansion draft time (in June), but we’ll know more at that point in time." Anaheim is competing for the Pacific Division title with its 32-20-10 record. San Jose currently has a three-point lead in that battle and has played in two fewer games.

Patrick Eaves hopes to play for Anaheim on Saturday after the Ducks acquired him Friday afternoon.

Anaheim sent Dallas a conditional second rounder that can be upgrades to a first if the Ducks make it to the Conference Final and Eaves plays in at least half of the games. "I was a little disoriented because I was taking a pregame nap for the game tonight," Eaves said, referring to when he found out about the trade. "It got me out of bed really quick, that’s for sure. I was excited. Your world gets turned upside down real quick. I want to get out there as soon as possible, and fortunately we have an afternoon game tomorrow, so I’m getting ready for that." Eaves has 21 goals and 37 points in 59 contests this season, which already represents career-highs for him in goals and points.

With John Gibson unavailable due to injury, look for Jonathan Bernier to be in net on Saturday against the Kings.

It's been an up-and-down season for Bernier in 2016-17. He's 9-5-2 in 23 games thus far with a .900 save percentage and a 2.93 GAA, including a shutout.
Feb 24 - 8:56 PM

Nicolas Kerdiles was returned to AHL San Diego on Friday.

The 23-year-old didn't get on the scoreboard during his NHL debut on Wednesday. He has four goals and nine points in 10 games with the Gulls thus far this season.
Feb 24 - 6:45 PM

John Gibson won't play Saturday because of a lower-body strain.

The Ducks hope that Gibson will be ready to play when the team returns from their bye week. Gibson has been out since Feb. 20. After playing the Kings on Saturday, the Ducks will take on the Leafs on March 3rd.

The conditions for the 2017 second round draft pick coming over from Anaheim to Dallas for Patrik Eaves have come to light.

The second rounder will upgrade to a first rounder in 2017 should the Ducks make it to the Conference Final and Eaves plays in half their games. Short of that, the pick will be the middle between the Ottawa, San Jose and Toronto picks in the second round based on draft position. For example, if those three teams pick in the stated sequence in the second round, the Stars will receive the Sharks' pick.

The Anaheim Ducks have acquired Patrick Eaves in exchange for a conditional second-round draft pick in 2017.

The pick will upgrade to a first rounder should the Ducks advance to the Conference Final and Eaves plays in half their games. The 32-year-old is having a career season thus far. He's posted 21 goals and 37 points along with 60 hits in 59 games, he's also posted 11 power-play goals and 16 power-play points which should help to augment the Ducks' stagnated man advantage. Eaves carrier a $1M cap hit this season and could be an unrestricted free agent come July.

John Gibson (lower body) didn't participate in Thursday's practice.
