Chris Kelly has reportedly agreed to a contract with the Anaheim Ducks for the remainder of the 2017-18 season.

Kelly's new deal is worth a pro-rated $1.25 million plus bonuses. Kelly earned a bronze medal with Canada at the 2018 Winter Olympics. He also picked up two assists in 16 games with the AHL's Belleville Senators this year.

Look for Ryan Miller to be between the pipes Sunday for the Ducks.

With John Gibson on the injured reserve list and Reto Berra the new backup in Anaheim, the Ducks need to rely on the 37-year-old veteran who also played Saturday night. He has been sensational of late, giving up only one goal in his last 97 shots this past week. Miller is 8-5-5 with a 2.38 GAA and a .928 save percentage. If in, he is a good play on Sunday.

Rickard Rakell has not scored a goal in his last nine games.

It has been a bad slump for the first line winger who has 22 goals this season after 33 in 2016-17. The Ducks are having trouble scoring of late with only 10 goals in their last five games. Fortunately, until Saturday's 2-0 loss to Arizona, the Ducks had won four in a row. Rakell should bust loose soon so we suggest keeping him in your lineup.

Ryan Getzlaf and the Anaheim Ducks failed to find the scoresheet in a 2-0 loss to the Arizona Coyotes on Saturday night.

Getzlaf has just three points in seven games for the Ducks. The center, along with his teammates, failed to find the back of the net against the Coyotes. Getzlaf still just has eight goals and 38 points in 39 games this season.

Ryan Miller made 36 saves in a 2-0 loss to the Arizona Coyotes on Saturday night.

Miller was looking to win three straight starts for the first time all year. But once again, the American goaltender's attempts were thwarted. Miller's record now falls to 8-5-5 with a 2.38 GAA and a .928 save percentage.

Anaheim is expected to scratch Derek Grant on Saturday.

Grant was in the lineup for the Ducks' previous four games. He has eight goals and 17 points in 48 games this season.

Kevin Bieksa is expected to be a healthy scratch Saturday night.

It will be Bieksa's second straight game in the press box. He has six assists in 54 contests in 2017-18.

The Ducks have recalled Kalle Kossila from San Diego of the AHL.

Kossila has had a strong season in the AHL with 38 points in 35 games for the Gulls, but has only two points in 10 games with the Ducks. The 24-year-old forward probably won't dress Saturday night against the Coyotes, so we wouldn't rush to pick him up.
Feb 24 - 1:34 PM

John Gibson has been placed on injured reserve yet again.

The talented Ducks' netminder just can't stay healthy. This time he's got a lower-body injury he sustained on Monday that has kept him off the ice all week. We would reserve Gibson and look for a short-term repalcement immediately. Kalle Kossila has been recalled from San Diego of the AHL to take Gibson's place on the roster.
Feb 24 - 1:25 PM

Ryan Miller is the Ducks' probable starter Saturday night against Arizona.

The Ducks didn't skate Saturday morning but the thinking is that it will be Miller time come puck drop at 8:00 pm ET. Miller will be attempting to boost his 8-4-5 record and improve his 2.46 GAA and .925 SP. We like his chances against the Coyotes.
Feb 24 - 1:21 PM

John Gibson (lower body) wasn't on the ice on Friday.

If the status quo persists, then Gibson will miss the Ducks' games on Saturday and Sunday while being moved to the injured reserve list. Gibson was injured on Monday, so the fact that he hasn't resumed skating yet is particularly discouraging when it comes to his chances of playing this weekend.
Feb 23 - 4:24 PM

Hampus Lindholm found the back of the net in a 2-0 win against Dallas.

Lindholm's marker was his second game-winner of the 2017-18 campaign and the sixth of his career. The defenseman has nine goals and 22 points in 49 contests this season. That puts him two points ahead of his 2016-17 mark with time to spare.
Feb 22 - 4:40 AM

Ryan Getzlaf scored a goal and registered an assist in Anaheim's 2-0 win against Dallas on Wednesday.

Getzlaf's goal was a shorthanded marker in the third period. He has eight goals and 38 points in 38 contests this season. It's a shame that he missed a significant chunk of the season, but if he can stay healthy in 2018-19 then it wouldn't be surprising to see him go back above the 70-point milestone.
Feb 22 - 4:38 AM

Ryan Miller earned a 41-save shutout in Anaheim's 2-0 victory over Dallas Wednesday night.

Miller has made 15 starts this season (21 appearances overall) and three of them have been shutouts. He's up to an 8-4-5 record with a 2.46 GAA and .925 save percentage. John Gibson is sidelined with a lower-body injury, so the Ducks are expected to continue to lean on Miller for now.
Feb 22 - 4:36 AM

Kevin Bieksa will be a healthy scratch in Wednesday's game against the Dallas Stars.

Bieksa has no goals, six assists and a minus-11 rating in 54 games this season. It's the second time in four games that he'll serve as a healthy scratch. Antoine Vermette will also join him in the press box.
