Cam Fowler (knee) was activated from the Injured List and he went scoreless in 23:25 of ice time on Monday in San Jose.

Fowler took just one shot in 23:25 of ice time, but he was able to post a plus-1 rating with two blocked shots. He missed 12 games due to his knee ailment. The Ducks are starting to get key components back after a tough start due to several injuries. It's safe to get him back into the active lineup as he did not show any ill effects of his injury and played with no apparent restrictions.
Nov 21 - 2:51 AM

Corey Perry posted a goal with an assist, plus-2 rating, four shots on goal and two hits in Monday's shootout victory against the Sharks.

Perry started out rather slowly by his standards, posting three goals with 10 points over his first 15 contests. However, he is making up for lost time over the past three outings, turning in multi-point efforts with a goal and five assists. He was also blanked on the power play through his first 15 games, but he has four assists on the man advantage over the past five outings.
Nov 21 - 2:44 AM

Rickard Rakell posted a goal, an assist, a plus-1 rating, a blocked shot and a hit in Monday's 3-2 shootout win in San Jose.

Rakell has picked up points in three straight, and seven of the past eight outings. He also has goals in back-to-back games for the first time this season. Since Nov. 3 he has posted three goals with 11 points over his past eight outings, including one power-play goal and five points on the man advantage.
Nov 21 - 2:40 AM

Brandon Montour posted two assists with a plus-2 rating, four blocked shots and four hits in Monday's 3-2 shootout win at San Jose.

Montour has picked up the pace with two goals, five points and a plus-3 rating over the past six outings. He is seeing time on the power play lately and enjoying a nice run of success. The rearguard is enjoying a nice two-week run of success and has emerged as a useful option in plenty of fantasy pools.
Nov 21 - 2:33 AM

Reto Berra allowed two goals on 42 shots in Monday's 3-2 shootout victory in San Jose.

The Swiss backstop was sharp in his first start of the season. He has allowed just five goals on 73 shots with a .932 save percentage in parts of four appearances. He is still not someone to rely upon for fantasy purposes, but he has proven to be a decent low-priced DFS option when given the chance to play.
Nov 21 - 2:15 AM

Francois Beauchemin will be a healthy scratch on Monday night as the Anaheim Ducks visit the San Jose Sharks.

The Ducks are playing the second game of a back-to-back, in which Beauchemin does not play. The 37-year-old has just two assists in 18 games so far this season, but has not recorded a point in his last ten games. He is definitely not a fantasy asset in any way as his career winds down. Joining him in the press box tonight will be Korbinian Holzer and Jaycob Megna.
Nov 20 - 8:33 PM

Cam Fowler (knee) will be a game-time decision on Monday night.

Fowler took part in Saturday's practice and he skated again in Monday's optional morning session. He has missed the last 12 games with a knee injury.
Nov 20 - 5:53 PM

John Gibson may get the call to start Monday night.

Gibson rested Monday morning, which means he could possibly play again after he stopped 50 shots in a 3-2 win over the Florida Panthers on Sunday night. If he doesn't get the nod then the Ducks will give Reto Berra his first start with the team because Ryan Miller isn't available due to a lower-body injury.
Nov 20 - 5:49 PM

Brandon Montour's sixth goal of the season was the game winner Sunday.

Montour has enjoyed a nice run of success while Cam Fowler has been out of action but that may change slightly as Fowler is due back this week after missing a month of action. That being said, Montour has a lot of offensive weapons and should still be fantasy worthy in most leagues.
Nov 20 - 5:39 AM

Mike Liambas was called up from the minors on Sunday.

The Ducks recalled the feisty 28-year-old and he played in only his second NHL game of his career. He saw only 3:43 of action but managed seven penalty minutes including a fight with Micheal Haley of the Panthers. Take him only in deeper leagues and if you are in need of an enforcer.
Nov 20 - 2:27 AM

John Gibson stopped the Panthers 50 times in Sunday night's 3-2 victory.

It was one save shy of his career high as the Panthers were rejected time and time again. The win, Gibson's second straight, improves his record to 7-6-1 this season with a .924 save percentage and 2.78 goals against average.
Nov 19 - 11:45 PM

Corey Perry's two assists guided the Ducks to a 3-2 win over Florida on Sunday.

Perry has three goals and 12 points in 18 games, but he's coming along lately with six in his past four games.
Nov 19 - 11:37 PM

John Gibson will face the Panthers on Sunday night.

Gibson is 6-6-1 this season with a 2.84 goals-against average and .920 save percentage. He will look for a second straight win after snapping a losing skid last Wednesday with a 40-save effort against Boston.
Nov 19 - 7:32 PM

Hampus Lindholm is expected to return from a lower-body injury Sunday night.

Lindholm didn't play on Wednesday due to the ailment. Look for him to play alongside Josh Manson against Florida.
Nov 19 - 6:46 PM

Ondrej Kase (upper body) skated before practice on Saturday.

The forward was injured on November 7 when taking a hit from Kurtis MacDermid of the Kings. He has yet to return to practice. Kase has five goals and eight points in 12 games and could be considered in deeper leagues upon his return to the lineup.
