John Gibson has been sensational since the first of January.

Gibson has been the NHL's top goalie for the last seven-plus weeks with a 1.82 GAA and four shutouts. He is 11-6-1 during the span and has allowed only 33 goals on 545 shots. He is a must start.

John Gibson made 24 saves on Sunday night and the Ducks needed every one of them to edge the Kings 1-0.

Gibson now has two shutouts in his last three games — against two quality opponents in L.A. and Minnesota. The 23-year-old improves to 23-15-8 this season with a 2.27 goals against average and .922 save percentage. Gibson is undoubtedly thriving in his first full year as the Ducks' No. 1 goaltender.

Josh Manson's second goal of the year stood out to be the game winner in a 1-0 Ducks victory over L.A. on Sunday.

Manson took a saucer pass from Ryan Getzlaf and fired it home for the only goal of the game. The defenseman has two goals and 11 points this season.
Feb 20 - 12:18 AM

Korbinian Holzer and Corey Tropp will not play in Sunday's match with the Kings.

Which means that Tropp will continue to have to wait to make his Ducks debut. Holzer meanwhile has played in just 22 games, posting six points and 52 hits.

John Gibson is expected to be in net against the Kings on Sunday.

He holds a 22-15-8 record with a 2.32 GAA and a .920 save percentage so far this season. Which is about as good as it gets for the young netminder.

Look for John Gibson to be between the pipes Sunday when the Ducks take on the Kings.

Gibson was given the day off Saturday when Anaheim practiced after he gave up three goals on 30 shots to Florida Friday. He is 22-15-8 with a 2.32 GAA and a .920 save percentage. Put him in your lineup if you normally would.
Feb 19 - 5:04 AM

Ryan Kesler is back playing with Andrew Cogliano and Jakub Silfverberg.

The Ducks are struggling as they are 3-5-1 in their last nine and coach Randy Carlyle needed to switch things around. He decided to reunite the trio. Kesler has been the Ducks best player and best fantasy choice this season. He has 19 goals, 44 points and 48 penalty minutes in 59 games to go with a plus-nine rating. He is a must-start.
Feb 19 - 5:01 AM

Corey Tropp was a healthy scratch on Friday night.

It was thought that he could make his Ducks debut against Florida, but that didn't end up being the case. Tropp hasn't played in the NHL since 2014-15 when he appeared in 61 games for Columbus.
Feb 18 - 9:20 AM

Nate Thompson is expected to take more faceoffs during Antoine Vermette's suspension.

However, he took just five puck drops in Friday's loss to Florida, as the Ducks leaned on Ryan Kesler for 23 draws. "I think Nate Thompson would be a guy who's going to be expected to play a little more now," said coach Randy Carlyle. "He's another left-handed center iceman who can take some defensive-zone faceoffs." He also could see more time on the penalty kill. Thompson has played in eight games since missing the first 51 matches because of an Achilles tendon injury.
Feb 18 - 9:17 AM

Ondrej Kase skated alongside Ryan Getzlaf and Jakob Silfverberg on Friday night.

He was filling in for suspended forward Antoine Vermette. Kase finished with 14:44 of ice time, which is the most playing time he has had since Jan. 21. He has four goals and 12 points in 41 appearances this year.
Feb 18 - 9:10 AM

John Gibson stopped 27 of 30 shots in a 4-1 loss to the Florida Panthers on Friday.

Gibson made a few big stops but a poor second period by the Ducks cost them the game. Gibson's season has had its ups and downs but he has been better since the start of the New Year. His goals against average is down from 2.59 to 2.32, and his save percentage is up from .911 to .920. It goes without saying that he has a bright future ahead of him.
Feb 18 - 1:01 AM

Andrew Cogliano scored the only goal for the Ducks in a 4-1 loss to the Florida Panthers on Friday.

Cogliano used his strength and speed to get by a couple of Panthers and sneak in a shot five-hole on James Reimer for his third short-handed marker of the year. Cogliano now has 26 points in 59 games, with four coming in his last five games. He is a quality two-way forward but does not possess any fantasy upside.
Feb 18 - 12:51 AM

Jared Boll and Korbinian Holzer will be scratched against the Panthers on Friday.

Through 38 games this season the physical winger has posted 48 hits and 68 PIMs with two assists. Holzer meanwhile has six points with 52 hits in 22 games.

Corey Tropp is expected to fill in for the suspended Antoine Vermette and make his Ducks debut on Friday against the Panthers.

The 27-year-old winger has posted 17 goals with 48 points in 57 games with AHL San Diego since joining the franchise last season. He has 27 points in 148 career NHL games split between Columbus and Buffalo.

Sami Vatanen will make his return to the Ducks' blue line on Friday against the Panthers.

His five-game absence was well-felt in Anaheim, but he's expected to pair with Cam Fowler to combine for one of the game's best duos. He has two goals and 17 points in 49 games with 94 hits.
