Description: The Ducks pulled starting goalie Ilya Bryzgalov on Tuesday after he allowed three goals on eight shots versus the Panthers.
Insight: John Gibson replaced him at about the five minute mark of the second period. Gibson allowed three of his own goals on 18 shots, so he didn't exactly run away with the goaltending job either. As soon as Frederik Andersen can play again, he will certainly be in net.

Insight: Beleskey is only there because of injuries to Dany Heatley and Patrick Maroon. It could give a short-term boost, but don't overvalue him in the long-term.
Corey Perry, RW10/13/2014 7:09:00 PM
Description: Ducks winger Corey Perry notched his fourth goal of the season.
Insight: Through three games, Perry is off to a fantastic start. He registered four shots on goal Monday afternoon, and now has five points on the season.
Ryan Getzlaf, C10/12/2014 12:28:00 AM
Description: Ryan Getzlaf was a huge force on offense Saturday night, taking seven shots and scoring twice.
Insight: It was his first goals of the season, including the game-winner coming with 24 seconds left. We're expecting huge numbers again this season after 87 points in 2013-14.
Sami Vatanen, D10/11/2014 11:04:00 AM
Description: Anaheim defenseman Sami Vatanen ran the point on the potent Ducks power play on Thursday night.
Insight: The Ducks scored three times on the power play against the Pittsburgh Penguins and Vatanen earned assists on two of them. Anaheim went with four forwards and just Vatanen as the one defenseman on the man advantage. Vatanen's fantasy value is through the roof if he remains with this unit.
Ryan Kesler, C10/9/2014 10:12:00 PM
Description: Ducks center Ryan Kesler had two assists in his Anaheim debut in Pittsburgh on Thursday.
Insight: Kesler played over four minutes on the power play, which is certainly encouraging for his fantasy owners. Both of his assists came with the man advantage. Kesler's fantasy value greatly rises if he can continue to play with Ryan Getzlaf and Corey Perry on the power play.
Corey Perry, RW10/9/2014 10:05:00 PM
Description: Ducks winger Corey Perry registered his sixth-career hat trick as the Ducks lost to the Penguins, 6-4, on Thursday.
Insight: Perry took advantage of a Marc-Andre Fleury mishap to score his first goal. Fleury left his crease to play the puck and turned it over to Ducks' Patrick Maroon, who then found Perry wide open in front of the net. Perry also scored twice on the power play. Despite the three points, he finished with a minus-one rating.
Cam Fowler, D10/9/2014 4:08:00 PM
Description: Ducks defenseman Cam Fowler (leg) has received medical clearance to play, but is likely still a game-time decision.
Insight: Fowler (6 G, 30 A) is expected back sometime on the Ducks opening four-game road trip, but it may not be for the opener.
Cam Fowler, D10/7/2014 1:28:00 PM
Description: Ducks defenseman Cam Fowler (leg) was on the ice yesterday and is questionable for Thursday's game against Pittsburgh.
Insight: Fowler (6 G, 30 A) should be back sometime on the Ducks four-game road trip, but it may not be for the opener.
Patrick Maroon, LW9/29/2014 6:00:00 PM
Description: Winger Patrick Maroon is practicing on the first line with center Ryan Getzlaf and winger Corey Perry.
Insight: Maroon is taking the place of the injured Dany Heatley, who is out with a groin injury. Maroon is a player worth keeping an eye on because there is no timetable for Heatley's return. If Maroon plays well, he may even stay on the first line when Heatley does return.
Saku Koivu, C9/20/2014 2:05:00 PM
Description: Ducks center Saku Koivu retired last week ending his career after 18 seasons with Montreal and Anaheim.
Insight: Koivu was never a superstar fantasy value, but he did have two 70-plus points seasons and finished his career with 255 goals and 577 assists.
Kyle Palmieri, C9/20/2014 1:58:00 PM
Description: Ducks right wing Kyle Palmieri suffered a high ankle sprain to his right leg and is expected to miss about two weeks.
Insight: That timetable would return him to the lineup just around opening day. He had 14 goals and 17 assists in 71 games last season - not everyday start-worthy, but a nice fill-in option for fantasy owners.
Shea Theodore, D9/20/2014 1:54:00 PM
Description: Anaheim defensive prospect Shea Theodore will miss 4-6 weeks due to an ulnar collateral ligament sprain in his right elbow.
Insight: Theodore put up huge numbers in the WHL last season (22 goals, 57 assists) and had an outside shot at making the opening day roster, but this will end that hope.
Ryan Kesler, C6/27/2014 9:21:00 PM
Description: Anaheim has acquired center Ryan Kesler from the Canucks. SOURCE: Pierre LeBrun, ESPN
Insight: The Ducks are sending Nick Bonino to Vancouver along with Luca Sbisa and the 24th overall pick in tonight's NHL Draft. In ten seasons with the Canucks, Kesler tallied 182 goals while firing 1,557 shots on net.
Matt Beleskey, LW5/16/2014 12:18:00 PM
Description: Anaheim Ducks forward Matt Beleskey has been downgraded to out for Game 7 of the Western Conference Semifinals Saturday against Los Angeles.
Insight: Beleskey scored 24 points (9 G, 15 A) in 55 games this season, his best career totals. He totaled four points in five playoff games this season.
Frederik Andersen, G5/16/2014 12:15:00 PM
Description: Ducks goaltender Frederik Andersen will miss Game 7 of the Western Conference Semifinals Saturday against Los Angeles due to a lower body injury.
Insight: The 24-year-old rookie went 20-5-0 with a 2.29 GAA and a .923 SV% as a backup to Jonas Hiller this season and he's 3-2 with a 3.10 GAA and .899 SV% in the postseason.
John Gibson, GHot5/13/2014 5:13:00 PM
Description: Ducks 20-year-old goaltender John Gibson has saved 67 of 70 shots in the last two games against the Kings. Anaheim won both games and leads 3-2 in its second-round series against Los Angeles.
Insight: Gibson made three appearances with the Ducks all season and was starting for Anaheim's AHL team just last week, but the team needed a starting goalie after Frederik Andersen suffered a lower-body injury. Gibson had a shutout Saturday and saved 39 of 42 shots in a 4-3 win Monday night.
John Gibson, G5/10/2014 9:17:00 PM
Description: The Anaheim Ducks are starting 20-year-old John Gibson in net at Los Angeles in Game 4 of the Western Conference semifinals Saturday night after Frederik Andersen suffered a lower-body injury in Game 3.
Insight: The Ducks lost all confidence in Jonas Hiller after he was shelled in March and April. Gibson was the top North American goalie available in the 2011 NHL Draft and was selected 39th overall by Anaheim. He had a .919 SV% in the regular season and a .955 SV% in the postseason for Norfolk of the AHL this season, and now he'll be thrown into the fire of the Stanley Cup Playoffs with the Ducks down 2-1.
Mathieu Perreault, C5/10/2014 2:44:00 PM
Description: Ducks center Mathieu Perreault is questionable for Game 4 of the Western Conference Semifinals Saturday against Los Angeles due to a lower body injury.
Insight: The 26-year-old had a career-high 43 points in 69 games this season and four more in eight playoff games.
Frederik Andersen, G5/10/2014 2:42:00 PM
Description: Ducks goaltender Frederik Andersen will miss Game 4 of the Western Conference Semifinals Saturday against Los Angeles.
Insight: The 24-year-old rookie went 20-5-0 with a 2.29 GAA and a .923 SV% as a backup to Jonas Hiller this season and he's 3-2 with a 3.10 GAA and .899 SV% in the postseason.
Matt Beleskey, LW5/10/2014 2:38:00 PM
Description: Anaheim Ducks forward Matt Beleskey has been downgraded to out for Game 4 of the Western Conference Semifinals Saturday against Los Angeles.
Insight: He missed the morning skate. Beleskey scored 24 points (9 G, 15 A) in 55 games this season, his best career totals. He totaled four points in five playoff games this season.
Ryan Getzlaf, C5/4/2014 9:32:00 AM
Description: Ryan Getzlaf assisted on both Anaheim goals Saturday in an overtime loss to Los Angeles.
Insight: He saw almost 26 minutes of action, the most he's played since March 28th against Edmonton. That's impressive considering the gruesome facial injury Getzlaf suffered in the first round versus Dallas. He now has nine points (three goals, six assists) in six postseason appearances in 2014.
Ryan Getzlaf, C4/25/2014 1:52:00 PM
Description: Anaheim center Ryan Getzlaf (upper body) missed Game 4 of the Western Conference quarterfinals against the Stars on Wednesday, but skated with the first line in Friday's practice.
Insight: Dallas won Game 4 to tie the series 2-2 and Anaheim certainly needs Getzlaf back. The 28-year-old center had 87 points this season, second-most in the NHL. We're now leaning toward expecting him to be on the line with Corey Perry and Nick Bonino tonight.
Matt Beleskey, LW4/25/2014 10:27:00 AM
Description: Anaheim Ducks forward Matt Beleskey is doubtful for Game 5 of the Western Conference Quarterfinals Friday against Dallas.
Insight: He's more likely to return for Game 6. Beleskey scored 24 points (9 G, 15 A) in 55 games this season, his best career totals. He had a goal and an assist in the series opener.
Ryan Getzlaf, C4/24/2014 5:30:00 PM
Description: Anaheim center Ryan Getzlaf (upper body) missed Game 4 of the Western Conference quarterfinals against the Stars on Wednesday and is questionable for Game 5.
Insight: Dallas won Game 4 to tie the series 2-2 and Anaheim certainly needs Getzlaf back. The 28-year-old center had 87 points this season, second-most in the NHL.
Teemu Selanne, RW4/23/2014 5:20:00 PM
Description: Ducks right wing Teemu Selanne will not play in Game 4 of Anaheim's playoff series against the Stars Wednesday night. SOURCE: Eric Stephens, Orange County Register
Insight: Selanne is a future Hall of Famer but the Ducks aren't relying much on the 43-year-old, who's in his final season. He'll be a healthy scratch as the Ducks try to go up 3-1 on Dallas.
Matt Beleskey, LW4/21/2014 10:57:00 AM
Description: Anaheim Ducks forward Matt Beleskey is questionable for Game 3 of the Western Conference Quarterfinals Monday against Dallas.
Insight: Beleskey scored 24 points (9 G, 15 A) in 55 games this season, his best career totals. he had a goal and an assist in the series opener.
Matt Beleskey, LW4/18/2014 2:26:00 PM
Description: Anaheim Ducks forward Matt Beleskey is expected to miss a few more days with a broken thumb.
Insight: Beleskey scored 24 points (9 G, 15 A) in 55 games this season, his best career totals, but has little to no fantasy value.
Ryan Getzlaf, C4/17/2014 9:20:00 PM
Description: Anaheim center Ryan Getzlaf took a shot to the face Wednesday in Game 1 but should be ready for Friday's Game 2. SOURCE: Eric Stephens, Orange County Register
Insight: If you have a weak stomach you're not going to want to see the replay. Getzlaf's a hockey player though so he'll brush it off. He had two points in Anaheim's win on Wednesday night (one goal, one assist).
Frederik Andersen, G4/16/2014 2:34:00 PM
Description: The Ducks will go with Frederik Andersen in Game 1 of the playoffs against the Stars Wednesday night, according to Eric Stephens of the Orange County Register.
Insight: The 24-year-old rookie went 20-5-0 with a 2.29 GAA and a .923 SV% as a backup to Jonas Hiller this season. Hiller had a 3.34 GAA and an .881 SV% over his final 10 starts.
Corey Perry, RW4/13/2014 8:43:00 PM
Description: Ducks winger Corey Perry (rest) didn't play in Sunday's regular season finale. It was his first absence of the season.
Insight: He'll be ready to go in the postseason. Perry's 84 points ranked fifth in the NHL this season, and his 43 goals were second.
Ryan Getzlaf, C4/13/2014 8:42:00 PM
Description: The Ducks made Ryan Getzlaf a healthy scratch Sunday as they prepare for the playoffs.
Insight: Getzlaf will finish second in the NHL to Sidney Crosby with 87 points, a career high. He also scored a career-high 31 goals this season.
Teemu Selanne, RW4/12/2014 2:50:00 PM
Description: Ducks right wing Teemu Selanne will miss Saturday's game to rest.
Insight: The 43-year-old has contributed just 27 points in 63 games this season, but will be ready to go in the playoffs. Once a 100-point-a-year fantasy stud, he's a part-timer now.
Saku Koivu, C4/12/2014 2:49:00 PM
Description: Anaheim center Saku Koivu will miss Saturday's game against Los Angeles for rest.
Insight: Koivu has scored 10 goals with 18 assist this season which isn't fantasy worthy for a center.
Cam Fowler, D4/10/2014 6:14:00 PM
Description: Ducks defenseman Cam Fowler (sprained MCL) returned to action Wednesday against the Sharks.
Insight: Fowler (6 G, 30 A) had been out since March 14 and wasn't expected to play initially, but he ended up skating 20 minutes in the win.
Frederik Andersen, G4/9/2014 8:41:00 PM
Description: Ducks backup goalie Frederik Andersen (upper body) will remain out of the lineup Wednesday, according to Eric Stephens of the Orange County Register.
Insight: John Gibson had a shutout in his NHL debut Monday at Vancouver and will get another start Wednesday against the Sharks. Andersen has been terrific as Jonas Hiller's backup this season, going 19-5-0 with a 2.27 GAA and a .924 SV%.
Cam Fowler, D4/9/2014 6:14:00 PM
Description: Ducks defenseman Cam Fowler (sprained MCL) wasn't expected to play Wednesday but he says he'll be a game-time decision, according to Eric Stephens of the Orange County Register.

Frederik Andersen, G4/7/2014 2:08:00 PM
Description: Ducks backup goalie Frederik Andersen left Friday'a game with an upper-body injury and is questionable for Monday's game against Vancouver.
Insight: Andersen has been great as a backup going 19-5-0 with a 2.27 GAA and .924 SV%. Starter Jonas Hiller has lost his last two and could probably use a night off, but that won't happen until Andersen is healthy.
Teemu Selanne, RW3/30/2014 5:59:00 PM
Description: Ducks right wing Teemu Selanne missed Saturday's game to rest.
Insight: Selanne should be back Monday against the Jets. The 43-year-old has contributed five points (two goals) over his last six games but just 25 points in 58 games this season.
Francois Beauchemin, D3/26/2014 4:25:00 PM
Description: Ducks defenseman Francois Beauchemin will receive Wednesday's game off to rest, according to Eric Stephens of the Orange County Register.

Insight: Bonino suffered the injury when he blocked a shot Tuesday against Washington. He missed Thursday's game against San Jose but practiced Saturday. The 25-year-old has set career highs with 17 goals, 27 assists (44 points) and 128 SOG this season.
Cam Fowler, D3/19/2014 6:53:00 PM
Description: Ducks defenseman Cam Fowler has been diagnosed with a sprained MCL. SOURCE: Eric Stephens, Orange County Register
Insight: He'll be sidelined for 3-to-5 weeks. It's safe to drop Fowler (six goals, 40 assists in 67 games) from all fantasy rosters at this point.
Nick Bonino, C3/19/2014 3:11:00 PM
Description: Ducks center Nick Bonino (lower body) is questionable for Thursday's game against San Jose, according to Eric Stephens of the Orange County Register.
Insight: Bonino had a walking boot on his left foot Wednesday after suffering an injury while blocking a shot in the third period Tuesday night. The 25-year-old has set career highs with 17 goals, 27 assists (44 points) and 128 SOG this season.
Mathieu Perreault, C3/19/2014 10:19:00 AM
Description: Ducks center Mathieu Perreault has contributed a point in three straight games.
Insight: Two of them were goals, giving him 14. The 26-year-old has a career-high 33 points in 56 games this season.
Cam Fowler, D3/18/2014 5:16:00 PM
Description: Anaheim defenseman Cam Fowler (knee) will miss a second straight game Tuesday night, according to Eric Stephens of the Orange County Register.
Insight: Fowler (6 G, 30 A) had an MRI Tuesday morning, but coach Bruce Boudreau said the results might not be available until after the game.
Cam Fowler, D3/15/2014 1:46:00 PM
Description: Anaheim defenseman Cam Fowler is doubtful for Saturday's game against Los Angeles due to a lower body injury.
Insight: The 22-year-old is back to being the offensive weapon he was before last season's slump. He has 36 points (6G, 30A) on 99 SOG and a solid +15 rating. Fowler has scored in two straight games, but is likely to miss this next game.
Luca Sbisa, D3/10/2014 11:44:00 AM
Description: Ducks defenseman Luca Sbisa is questionable for Monday's game against Toronto with a lower body injury.
Insight: Injuries have limited the 23-year-old this season. Despite his potential, we're still waiting for the 2008 first-round pick to emerge as a fantasy option (zero goals, two assists in 17 games this season). Keep looking.
Teemu Selanne, RW3/7/2014 2:54:00 PM
Description: Ducks right wing Teemu Selanne is questionable for Friday's game against Pittsburgh due to flu-like symptoms.
Insight: Selanne has just one point since Jan 30 (he's played six of eight games). No coincidently, he's not gotten as much as 14 minutes of ice time in any of the six games. Once a 100-point socrer, it's time to look elsewhere for fantasy offense.
Mathieu Perreault, C3/7/2014 2:52:00 PM
Description: Ducks center Mathieu Perreault is questionable for Friday's game against Pittsburgh with an upper body issue.
Insight: Perreault is a solid scorer with 12 goals and 18 assists in 52 games, but has missed the past two games.
