Anaheim Ducks News: Regular Season and Preseason Updates
11/28/13: The Anaheim Ducks are trying to weather the injury storm as defenseman Francois Beauchemin is out with an upper body injury. The Ducks recalled defenseman Sami Vatanen from their AHL affiliate Norfolk Admirals for the time being. New acquisition Tim Jackman will also make his team debut this week, and he can be a guy that will mix it up with opposing defensemen. The Ducks and San Jose Sharks are trading punches, figuratively, in the battle for first place in the Pacific Division. They are both aware of the high level of competition in the Western Conference, as eight teams now have 32 or 33 points, and only eight teams make the playoffs.
11/21/13: As well as things have been going for Anaheim this season, they may have a tough time over the next week. This is not a case of going against better competition or even league-mandated repurcussions. This may be worse. It is the flu and it seems to have affected several members of the Ducks. In the morning skate after the Ducks' game against Tampa, Francois Beauchemin and Corey Perry made brief appearances while Teemu Selanne, Mathieu Perrault, and Bryan Allen stayed in bed. While this is not good news, at least it is only temporary. All will bounce back and get the Ducks back to the top of the Pacific.
11/14/13: The San Jose Sharks started out as one of the hottest teams in the league and earned a lot of recognition for that. Move over San Jose, Anaheim is now the best team in California. The Ducks have won five straight games and are getting help from all over their roster. Recently they beat the Vancouver Canucks and that was without star Ryan Getzlaf. They now lead the NHL with 31 points, which is three more than Colorado. After missing the playoffs in the 2011-12 season, the Ducks have shown a lot of resiliency by making the playoffs last season and are on their way this time around.
11/7/13: Anaheim is enjoying another solide season and sits in second place in the Pacific division behind the San Jose Sharks. They will need to dig in and have a few guys step up now, as Teemu Selanne is out for two weeks from oral surgery. Selanne was injured on a high-stick from Luke Schenn during a win over Philadelphia last week. Selanne's injury required 40 stitches to his mouth and he lost several teeth. He will miss his farewell stops in Boston and Buffalo, and the team hopes that he can return when they take a roadtrip to the Southeast to play Florida, Tampa, and Carolina.
10/31/13: The Ducks have started off the season relatively strongly with eight wins in their first 11 games. The downside is they have already been bitten by the injury bug. Jakob Silfverbergh, Victor Fasth, Dustin Penner, and Mathieu Perrault are some of the more prominent names on the injured list this week. Silfverberg is out 4-6 weeks with a broken hand and Penner is day to day and looks to join back up with the team in Columbus later in the week. The Ducks can whether the storm in the short term, but they have to avoid the big injuries if they are going to continue to be a contender this season.
10/24/13: Ducks forward Teemu Selanne is 43 years old and playing in his 22nd (and probably last) NHL season. That means that he has spent over half of his life playing professional hockey on the highest level. He can still deliver too. His first goal of the season, with assists to Jakob Sifverberg and Mathieu Perreault, in the second period against Calgary ended up being the game winner. The win was the Ducks fifth in a row, allowing them to keep pace with the San Jose Sharks - who have gotten off to the hottest start of any team in the NHL this season.
10/17/13: The Ducks are off to a nice start to the season winning three of their first four games. So far, it does not look like the miss former forward Bobby Ryan. Ryan, as many recall, is a very talented offensive threat. He played for the Ducks for several years but is probably best known for trying to get out of Anaheim. He made mention during the 2012 All-Star Game that Philadelphia would be a nice fit for him. He did not get traded then or even last season. He was finally moved to Ottawa, but again, it does not look like the Ducks miss him. He makes his first trip back to Anaheim this week. It will be interesting to see if he is welcomed back or booed when he steps on the ice.
10/10/13: The Ducks visited Winnipeg in their opening week, which was a joyous homecoming for Teemu Selanne. Many may not remember, but Selanne was drafted and came up through the original Winnipeg Jets in the early 1990's. He played a few seasons with great stats, but was traded when the Jets moved to Phoenix. The Winnipeg welcomed him back with open arms in what will likely be his final return to Winnipeg. It is great to see the sportsmanship and memories win out over rivalries at times. Anaheim won the game and is looking to build upon last season's success and need wins against Western Conference teams.
10/3/13: Anaheim took a big step last season by finishing second in Western Conference in the regular season. Their playoff run was short-lived, however, as Detroit eliminated them in the first round. The team expects to build on that experience in the 2013-14 season. Forward Bobby Ryan is now gone, so he cannot be a distraction anymore, but the Ducks do return two thirds of their top line with Ryan Getzlaf and Corey Perry. It looks like he will be joined by Dustin Penner or Kyle Palmieri. One thing to look forward to: the Ducks will play the L.A. Kings at Dodger Stadium in January.
9/26/13: The Anaheim Ducks are picking up where they left off in the 2013 regular season, winning games. The Ducks earned their third preseason victory by beating the San Jose Sharks 3-2 on Friday. Ben Lovejoy (no relation to Reverend Timothy Lovejoy) scored 2:48 into overtime by firing a shot between Sharks' goalie Antti Niemi's legs. The win was costly though. Emerson Etem, who scored in the second period, collided with Raffi Torres and suffered a lower body injury. He returned briefly, but then left the game for good. It is still a good start for the Ducks, who are trying to claim Southern California as their own over the L.A. Kings.
9/19/13: This can be filed under "U" for unnecessary or unwarranted or un-understandable. The Ducks announced that they would throw a 'Throwback' night on October 13 against the Ottawa Senator. Throwback, in this case, does not mean throwing back Bobby Ryan jerseys. It is actually to celebrate the team's 20th anniversary. Anaheim will bring back retro jerseys (yes, the purple ones. Ugh) and reminisce about the time they were known as the Mighty Ducks of Anaheim (and were among the worst teams in the league). Future hall of fame forward Teemu Selanne should not be subject to this in his farewell tour.
9/12/13: Now that the dust has settled and everyone knows that Teemu Selanne will return for one more year (a thought that was widely held throughout the league, regardless of what the Duck or Selanne said publicly), it is time to start figuring out where the Ducks will rank this year. The team finally traded away disgruntled winger Bobby Ryan. That leaves a bit of a void. Selanne - as great as he is - is not the man for this job. The Ducks really need a grinder in the corners who can put a few pucks in the net. Say, does anyone have Brendan Morrow's telephone number?
9/4/13: One more time - that is what they are saying in Anaheim. Future hall of famer Teemu Selanne has agreed to come back for one more season to try to win the Stanley Cup. His announcement was met with praise from rivals around the league, even from the rival L.A. Kings. Selanne is up there in years at 41, but still is one of the best forwards in the game. His return is good for both the Ducks, who need his skill and leadership, as well as for the league. It also gives teams the chance to say goodbye to him properly, and he deserves all the accolades that he receives.
8/29/13: The Anaheim Ducks path to repeating as Pacific Division champions just got a bit harder. Veteran defenseman Sheldon Souray injured his wrist and had surgery last month. He will be out for 4-6 months. Souray is key player on the powerplay, setting up the offense and offering a big shot from the point. Last season was his first in Anaheim, and he was solid with seven goals and 10 assists. He will be hard to replace in the short term, so the team will have to try to tread water until he returns, which would be December at the earliest.
8/22/13: As is custom this time of year, the Ducks are tyring to woo future hall of famer Teemu Selanne back for just one more season. The 43 year old recently met with Ducks GM Bob Murray to discuss a return. Most believe that Selanne would play for the Ducks or retire - that he has no interest in going any where else. Selanne's presence is always welcome in the Ducks' locker room, and the guy can still play. Unfortunately, there is no answer at this time. Selanne will likely take some time to decide if he still wants to play or not. Either way, he is a certain hall of famer who has provided great plays and class throughout his career.
8/15/13: As in past years, the Anaheim Ducks are keeping a roster spot open for future hall-of-famer Teemu Selane if he wants to return. Selane is in his 40's now and may opt for retirement. If he decides to return to the NHL, it will be with the Ducks. He is an unrestricted free agent, but the Ducks are the only place he will go. General manager Bob Murray recently stated that the team will welcome him back with open arms. They just want to be sure that he is 100% committed to play for another season. There is no timetable or rush for a decision, the roster spot will be there when Selane is ready.
8/8/13: The Anaheim Ducks returned to the playoffs this past season after a few years hiatus. The team finished the shortened regular season with the second best record in the Western Conference, but was knocked out of the playoffs in the first round by the Detroit Red Wings - even after holding a 3-2 series lead going into Game 6. The biggest offseason news is trading away Bobby Ryan to Ottawa and signing Dustin Penner from the crosstown L.A. Kings. Most of the rest of the team will return for the 2013-14 season, though there has been no word yet if the ageless Teemu Selane will come back for another season.
8/1/13: The Ducks finally traded disgruntled forward Bobby Ryan a few weeks ago and signed Dustin Penner as free agent - formerly of the L.A. Kings. But there are still questions remaining. The Ducks and Kings tied for the top of the division last season, with the Ducks getting the tie breaker. Once again, the team is not trying to bring in new blood, but will depend upon their veterans to lead the charge. The window is closing for this team, but they still have another strong season ahead of them, and it will be fun to watch in the newly realigned conferences.
7/25/13: Forward Dustin Penner will not have far to move for his next gig. The free agent, formerly of the Los Angeles Kings, has signed a one year deal for $2 million with the Anaheim Ducks. The Ducks gave Penner, now 30 years old, his first shot in the NHL. He struggled last season, only scoring 2 goals and 12 points in 33 games. But the Ducks realize that he is a big power forward that can control the puck. That is needed in the Western Conference where the players keep getting bigger and puck control is at a premium. He should be a nice addition to a strong team that needs more grit in the corners.
7/18/13: Vancouver GM Mike Gillis is planning a face-to-face meeting with goaltender Roberto Luongo in Florida in the near future. Most people expected Luongo to be traded this offseason, but it was starter Cory Schnieder who was traded (to New Jersey) instead. Luongo has among the most crippling contracts in all of pro sports. He is signed through the 2021-2022 season, and no other team seems willing (and rightfully so) to take on his contract. Not that it is likely, but maybe Vancouver is hoping that he will retire from the NHL and go to Russia like Ilya Kovalchek did last week.
7/11/13: Anaheim finally traded team pest Bobby Ryan. Ryan, who is a very talented player, has been unhappy in Anaheim for years. Last year, at the draft, he publicly speculated that Philadelphia would be a good place for him. Well, he is not going to Philly. He is going to the Capital of Canada - Ottawa, Ontario. The Senators had an immediate need to replace their departed captain Daniel Alfredson after he went to the Red Wings in free agency (after 17 years with the team). In return, the Ducks get Jakob Silfverberg, Stefan Noesen and the Senators' first round pick in 2014.
6/13/13: Congratulations are in order for Dwayne Roloson, who was announced as the Ducks new goaltending coach after legend Pete Peeters retired. Roloson lasted a long time in the NHL. He had a late revival in 2010-11 with the Tampa Bay Lightning, leading them to the Eastern Conference Finals. He could not match that performance the following season and eventually retired. Roloson comes into a good gig. He had been scouting goalies for the team, so he knows the personnel, and he will be working with two very good pros in Jonas Hiller and Viktor Fasth from the start.
5/16/13: It is hard to believe, but the Anaheim Ducks are out in the first round of the NHL playoffs. The Ducks had the second best record in the West and easily won the Pacific Division. They drew the Detroit Red Wings in the first round, who had the 7 seed. On paper, this should have gone only four or five games. But the Red Wings know how to play in the playoffs. The fierce series ended in Anaheim with a Detroit win in game seven. The only bright side is that the Ducks proved that they have the talent to compete in the West, and that was severely questioned after the team missed the playoffs last season.
2013 Stanley Cup Playoff Team - Anaheim Ducks
It feels like the Anaheim Ducks never left the Stanley Cup contender club, but there have been some trying seasons for the once mighty Ducks since their first Stanley Cup title in 2007. However, the past couple of year have included the highlight play of captain Ryan Getzlaf and wingers Corey Perry and Bobby Ryan. Coming into this year, some analysts wondered what to make of the future of this franchise, as both Getzlaf and Perry's contracts were due to expire soon and management's vision going forward was a little ambiguous. Both players are now resigned to extensions and not - repeat, NOT - traded away. Pairing this offensive core with a solid veteran defenseman like Francois Beauchemin and accomplished rookie goalie Viktor Fasth, and the nucleus of continued success for the Anaheim Ducks is clear.
What's also clear is the potential of the Anaheim Ducks to pose the biggest challenge to the Chicago Blackhawks in the 2013 Stanley Cup Playoff's Western Conference bracket. While the Blackhawks had a remarkable run to start the season, the Ducks had a run of their own in the second half of the season to keep the No. 1 seed in question than many expected. Two late-seaons four-game losing streaks, however, allowed the Blackhawks to pull away and actually gave the division-rival Los Angeles Kings a narrow shot at the Pacific Division title. The Ducks held off that push, though, and will now take aim at a team such as the Minnesota Wild in the first round. Assuming the seeding holds, Anaheim would then look toward a matchup with the Northwest Division champion Vancouver Canucks, a team with whom they split two early season meetings and will meet once more in the regular season.
Anaheim Ducks Stanley Cup Playoff Opponent
The most likely matchup for the Ducks are the Minnesota Wild, who Anaheim is undefeated against this season. The other less-likely teams to be paired in the first round of the 2013 NHL PLayoffs all had winning records against the Anaheim Ducks. Anaheim is guaranteed home ice advantage at the Honda Center for the first two round of the 2013 Stanley Cup Playoffs.

Anaheim Ducks - Minnesota Wild Fight - Maroon v Konopka
4/25/13: The Ducks have wrapped up the Pacific Division title and seem to be slotted for the second seed overall in the playoffs. Anaheim has had a remarkable turnaround from last season when they missed the playoffs completely. Now they are a focused veteran team that has put aside all the distractions (from disorderly conduct by the GM to not signing their best defensive prospect). Many wondered if keeping the core together this year was a good idea, but it looks like the Ducks know better than the rest of us as they await their first round opponent.
3/28/13: Anaheim is still dominating the Pacific Division, and are a full dozen points up on their nearest pursuer - the crosstown/region L.A. Kings. Somehow the team had a quirk in the schedule that had them hosting the Detroit Red Wings twice in three days - that is usually only in the playoffs. Worse yet for the Ducks is that the Red Wings won both games - handing Anaheim their first consecutive losses of the season. The Ducks still own the league's second best record at 225-5-4, good for 48 points, and trail only the Chicago Blackhawks by three points in the standings.
3/21/13: Anaheim still owns the second best record in the league, though no body is paying much attention to them. But they suffered a tough loss in overtime the rallying St. Loius Blues on the road on Saturday. The Blues had been without their entire second line for about a week, but got Alex Steen back on Thursday and rookie sensation Vladimir Tarasenko on Saturday. The Tarasenko appearance haunted the Ducks, as the young Russian gracefully fooled two defensemen and the goalie before sliding the puck to Chris Stewart for the game winning goal. The Ducks may have lost, but this team should go deep into the playoffs.
3/14/13: While Anaheim is on a roll and has the second best record in the Western Conference, winger Corey Perry has been suspended for four games for a late hit on Wild forward Jason Zucker. The Ducks are 19-3-3, good for 41 points and 11 points up the L.A. Kings in the Division. The Ducks also signed Ryan Getzlaf to an 8 year $66 million deal. With Chicago losing two in a row, the Ducks are in position to make a run for the best record and the number one seed in the playoffs. That scenario would have seemed unreasonable just a month ago, but the Ducks just are not slowing down for anyone at this point.
3/7/13: Anaheim continues on their torrid pace, but still gets no attention because of the Blackhawks. Chicago, of course, has not lost a game in regulation this season, earning at least one point in every game played - all 21 - which is an NHL record. The Ducks, though, are firing on all cylinders as well, posting a 15-3-3 record thus far and putting themselves eight points up over second place Phoenix in the Pacific Division. The Ducks rank first in the West with 71 goals and seventh in goals allowed with 57. So while the team is not getting the hype or publicity of Chicago, they look to be a strong contender for the Western crown come playoffs.
2/28/13: Amid all the hoopla surrounding the Chicago Blackhawks and their historic start of at least 17 game with earning a point is the Anaheim Ducks. Many may not realize it, but the Ducks are off to a great start as well. Through 16 games, the Ducks are 13-2-1, and have built up an eight point lead over second place San Jose in the Pacific Division. The team is largely unchanged from last season, but the cagey veterans are all playing at a top level. Again though, they are not getting the publicity that the Blackhawks are, but they certainly will come playoff time.
2/21/13: The Anaheim Ducks apparently do not like being second fiddle to the L.A. Kings. The Kings, of course, won the Stanley Cup last season and have been the toast of the Los Angeles hockey community. The Duck, on the other hand, were terrible last season and relied on aging veterans. Well those aging veterans have awoken as the Ducks have won five in a row and lead the Pacific division by seven points over the Phoenix Coyotes. Anaheim has scored a whopping 53 goals in 15 games and seems intent on making one last stand as the premiere hockey team in Southern California.
11/29/12: In a move that will certainly not reverberate throughout the hockey world, veteran journeyman Rod Pelley has signed on with Anaheim's AHL affiliate, the Norfolk Admirals. The Admirals were Tampa's affiliate until this summer. Last season, they dominated the AHL, going on a 28 game winning streak and cruising to the Calder Cup. Those players are now gone - having been transplanted to the Syracuse Crunch. Anaheim then became Norfolk's NHL team, and new players have been brought in. Pelley was traded to the Ducks from Devils last season, and played in 45 games with Anaheim.
11/22/12: Bobby Ryan is finally out of Anaheim, sort of. Ryan said last year that the Flyers would be a good team for him, fueling speculation that the Ducks would trade him. That has not happened yet. Ryan obviously does not want to play for the franchise, and a trade may happen once the lockout is over. For now, Ryan has signed to play in Sweden. Bobby Ryan is the newest member of Mora IK in Sweden's second highest professional league. LA Kings forward Anze Kopitar is already playing for the team. No word on when Ryan will join the club.
11/15/12: Anaheim's AHL affiliate, the Norfolk Admirals (who were the Tampa Bay Lightning's AHL affiliate until earlier this year) are 7-5 thus far in the 2012-13 season - good enough for second place in the AHL East Division. They trail the Syracuse Crunch by two points, who are, incidentally, Tampa's new AHL affiliate. Last season's Admirals crushed the rest of the league and set a record for most consecutive victories. Most of those players are now in Syracuse, but still within the Lightning family. So the debate is raging - who is the defending Calder Cup champion, the Admirals team, or the Crunch whose players actually won the trophy?
11/8/12: At some point, probably next season, the Ducks will have to replace Teemu Selanne. Selanne has had a wonderful career and has been an excellent ambassador for the game. But he is in his 40's now, and the rocking chair is calling. So who will replace him. Simply put, no one can. However, the Ducks may have some guys in the organization to help out. Brandon McMillan, Richard Rakell, Kyle Palmieri, and Emerson Etem are possibilities. Bobby Ryan is a candidate too, but that would require him staying in Anaheim, which may be a long-shot at this point.
11/1/12: How the Anaheim Ducks will look in year or two is anyone's guess. Cornerstone offensive players Corey Perry and Ryan Getzlaf both have contracts that expire at the end of the season, and Teemu Selanne may opt to retire. The Ducks had a chance to begin reshaping their roster last season by dumping salary for prospects, but instead decided to continue on with their veterans. They finished 34-36-12, last in Pacific Division and out of the playoffs. Now they have to figure out a way to retain Perry and Getzlaf, replace Selanne, and that may all start by dealing unhappy camper Bobby Ryan.
10/18/12: Seeing the turmoil in the Anaheim front office, combined with their refusal to adjust the roster and the ho-hum attitude of the players last year may lead one to believe that the Ducks do not care if the lockout ever ends. Anaheim has missed the playoffs two of the last three seasons while severely underachieving. There are still big names like Teemu Selanne and Ryan Getzlaf and Bobby Ryan, but the team needs to add some grit and enthusiasm to the roster. Bobby Ryan will likely get moved once the new CBA is agreed upon, and this could free up cap space to acquire top talent next offseason.
10/4/12: The Anaheim Ducks may be one of the few teams that actually benefits from a lockout. They need all the bad press to just go away, and maybe work out a trade for disgruntled forward Bobby Ryan. In the meantime, the Ducks are stuck with a quick but smallish roster - similar to their lineup in late 1990's. If recent history is any judge, then this is not suitable for the NHL, where the forwards have gotten bigger and stronger, and speed is less important than conditioning and positioning. In any case, there is still talent on the team, but management must figure out a way to make it work.
8/16/12: Considering the sad state of professional sports in Minnesota, the Wild may well be the best pro team in the North Star State. The Twins are currently battling the Royals for the cellar in baseball. The Timberwolves have rarely been relevant in their tenure (and they currently are not now). It probably will not be long before Kevin Love moves out for warmer weather and a bigger market. And the Vikings, long the King in the land of 10,000 lakes, well the Vikings will be lucky to surpass 3-13 from last year. Conversely, the Wild are on the way up. Parise and Suter are bringing fans in the return to health of top six forwards indicate that the Wild are the new King of Minnesota.
8/2/12: The Ducks will not get burned again by a top draft pick who uses a loophole to get out of a contract. Anaheim was in the news frequently when their 2008 second-round pick Justin Schultz famously decided to never sign a contract. He became a free agent in June, though he had never played a second in the NHL. NHL teams understand the risk when they spend a high draft pick on a European or Russian player - that the player may never come to North America. But not a native son. The Ducks locked up their first round pick (#6 overall) Hampus Lindholm quickly and will bring him in for camp this time around.
7/26/12: The trade market for 30 goal scorer Bobby Ryan may be heating up. Ryan's displeasure with the organization is well documented, and he said at the draft that Philadelphia may be a good place for him - not what management wants to hear from one of their best players. But several Eastern teams have a need and desire for a player like Ryan. The Flyers, of course, but also the Penguins, Devils, and Sabres could be interested. With Rick Nash off the market, there are only a few players that may be available, including Ryan, Shane Doan, and Alexander Semin.
5/22/12: Not Disneyland, not the spirit of the long-gone Rams, and not even the wave of good tidings enveloping the city when Albert Pujols arrived could jump start the Ducks into playing well enough to earn a trip to the playoffs this past season. Along with Buffalo, the Ducks have to be considered one of the biggest underachieving teams in the league, and now must decide to trust their core veterans to return to their usual levels or blow up the team and start over. Chief among those players is Teemu Sellane, who showed he is still an elite force despite 41 years of living.
5/16/12: Anaheim may be watching the World Championship tournament closely - in particularl their star forward Bobby Ryan. Ryan continues his torrid scoring pace as the U.S. team continues to advance (and will play host Finland in the quarterfinals). But for the Ducks, a team out of the postseaston for consecutive years, Ryan's ascension is also raising his trade value (he has scored at least 30 goals in each of his four seasons in the NHL). Clearly the team is not prospering with its current core veterans, so there may be some logic in trading away a young star for a bounty of assets.
5/11/12: The Ducks have a core of talented but aging veterans that they need to decide what to do with. The group, including Ryan Getzlaf, Bobby Ryan, and Corey Perry, started slow, but rallied - leading the team on a 17-3-4 run in mid-season. GM Bob Murray made no moves at the trade deadline, instead trusting his veterans. However, the early-season hole was too deep and the Ducks missed the playoffs for the second time in three years. Getzlaf in particular struggled, scoring a career-low 11 goals. If the Ducks keep him, he will need to return to form in order for Anaheim to return to the playoffs.
5/3/12: Like several other teams who did not qualify for the NHL postseason, the Ducks will be well-represented on the U.S roster at the IIHL World Championship tournament. Bobby Ryan, Cam Fowler, and prospect Kyle Palmieri will try to get the U.S back on the medal stand for the first time since 2004. Ryan scored in 3-2 win over Team Sweeden in warm-up game. Palmieri became eligible after the Syracuse Crunch of the AHL was eliminated from their playoffs. Palmieri scored 33 goals and 25 assists in just 51 games for the Crunch, and has an excellent chance of making the Ducks' roster in the fall.
4/25/12: The biggest question surrounding the Anaheim Ducks this offseason is what to do with future hall-of-famer Teemu Selanne. Selanne will be 42 in July and has played over 1300 games in 19 seasons, and may opt for retirement. Hanging up the skates should be his option, as he showed he can still play. He appeared in all 82 games this past season and led the Ducks in total points with 66. If the Ducks decide not to resign him, then some team in need of veteran leadership and a solid second line right wing would jump at the chance to add this classy player.
4/17/12: As Albert Pujols settles in with Angels, the Ducks are cleaning out their lockers and making tee times. Anaheim underachieved this past season, finishing last in the Pacific Division, 13th in the West, and losing four of their last five. All attention now turns to the draft, where the Ducks draft sixth. The team has scoring talent in Corey Perry, Bobby Ryan, and Ryan Getzlaf, but could use an offensive-minded defenseman. Potential draft picks include Matthew Dumba (Red Deer Rebels), Morgan Reilly (Moose Jaw Warriors), and Griffin Reinhart (Edmonton Oil Kings). In any case, the Ducks want someone to play right away.
