John Gibson will play between the pipes Thursday night.

Jan 19 - 2:02 PM

Anaheim has sent down Stefan Noesen.

He was a healthy scratch on Tuesday after he was called up from the minors. Noesen has one goal in nine games with the Ducks this campaign.
Jan 18 - 4:07 PM

Shea Theodore has been reassigned to AHL San Diego.

He has been up and down frequently lately in what is believed to be a cap saving maneuver by the Ducks. He was a healthy scratch on Tuesday. Theodore has seven points in 23 games with the Ducks this year.
Jan 18 - 4:03 PM

Ryan Kesler recorded an assist in a 2-1 overtime win against Tampa Bay on Tuesday.

Kesler has only been held off the scoresheet once in his last four contests. He has 18 goals and 38 points in 47 contests. At this rate, this could be the first time Kesler's reached the 60-point mark since 2010-11.
Jan 18 - 4:32 AM

Ryan Getzlaf has recorded a point in his last six games.

Getzlaf extended that run on Tuesday with a goal, but it doesn't count as a point streak because it was interrupted by an injury. That was his sixth goal and 34th point in 40 contests in 2016-17.
Jan 18 - 4:31 AM

John Gibson was nearly perfect in a 2-1 win over the Lightning Tuesday night with 27 saves on 28 shots.

Gibson entered the contest with a 5-1-1 record during his last eight games and in that span, he had save percentages of .913 or greater for an average of .956. He blanked Detroit on January 4 and Dallas on January 10, and while he came up one shy of getting his third shutout this month, his save percentage of .964 was stellar by any measure.
Jan 18 - 1:32 AM

It took only 54 seconds of overtime for Rickard Rakell to find the back of the net and give the Ducks a 2-1 victory over the Lightning Tuesday night.

Rakell’s goal came on a power-play early in overtime and gave the Ducks their seventh win in the last nine games. They have scored at least one point in 12 of their last 13. Rakell has not been a particularly big part of that success, however, with only four goals and one assist in that span of games.
Jan 18 - 1:17 AM

John Gibson will get the start in Tuesday's game against the Tampa Bay Lightning.

Gibson has a 5-1-1 record in his last seven games and he's given up two goals or less in six of those seven contests. He'll enter tonight's game with a 2.33 goals-against-average and a .920 save percentage. His fantasy stock is on the rise.
Jan 17 - 6:36 PM

Anaheim has recalled Stefan Noesen.

He was assigned to the minors Monday in what was probably a cap savings move. Noesen has appeared in nine games with the Ducks this year.
Jan 17 - 1:59 PM

Shea Theodore is back up with the Ducks.

He was sent down on Monday, so it was probably just a move to save some money on the cap. Theodore has skated in 23 games with Anaheim this season and he has seven points.
Jan 17 - 1:58 PM

The Ducks have assigned Stefan Noesen to the minors.

The 23-year-old has one goal, a plus-1 rating and two penalty minutes in nine games this season. He shouldn't be on anyone's fantasy radar.
Jan 16 - 8:21 PM

The Anaheim Ducks assigned Shea Theodore to the minors.

He was a healthy scratch in Anaheim's last game against the Blues. Theodore has one goal, six assists and a minus-7 rating in 23 games this season.
Jan 16 - 8:15 PM

Coach Randy Carlyle likes the progress and work ethic of John Gibson.

Carlyle reiterated the point that most people forget that Gibson is only 22 and already a starting goalie in the NHL. "People either don’t remember or don’t think of him as a goalie who is only 22 years old," Coach Randy Carlyle said. "He’s transitioning into a full-time NHL goalie. It takes big-league stops like the one (on Tarasenko) to compete in this league. He understands that there’s a work ethic that’s required to keep your skills sharp. There’s an understanding that it’s not always about you, that you gotta do the little things, gotta take the extra shots when it’s not your turn in the net that night. And you don’t do those things begrudgingly." Gibson is 17-10-8 with a 2.33 GAA and a .920 save percentage. He is a keeper.
