Ducks' Alex Killorn: Adds assist Thursday
Killorn managed an assist, four shots on goal and two PIM in Thursday's 5-4 loss to the Capitals.
Killorn has a modest three points over his last six games. The 34-year-old forward is up to five points, 30 shots on net, 10 PIM and a minus-8 rating through 13 appearances this season. He's mainly seen top-six minutes and ample power-play time, but he's yet to really click with linemates Leo Carlsson and Troy Terry on a consistent basis.... See More ... See Less
Ducks' Leo Carlsson: Creates helper in loss
Carlsson notched an assist in Thursday's 5-4 loss to the Capitals.
Carlsson was scratched for the previous two games as part of his development plan. The center responded with 21:26 of ice time Thursday, the fourth time he's exceeded 20 minutes in a game this season. He's up to six goals, four helpers, 31 shots on net, 11 hits and a minus-2 rating through 15 appearances. The Ducks haven't been abundantly clear as to when he plays or sits, but he's worth getting into fantasy lineups when he suits up.... See More ... See Less
Ducks' Brock McGinn: Buries goal Thursday
McGinn scored a goal on two shots and went plus-2 in Thursday's 5-4 loss to the Capitals.
The goal was McGinn's first of the season, and it cut the Capitals' lead to 4-3 midway through the third period. McGinn has played in four straight contests and appears to be gaining traction to be a regular on the fourth line. He's at two points, six shots on net, eight hits, four blocked shots and a plus-1 rating through six outings this season.... See More ... See Less
Ducks' Frank Vatrano: Scores late in loss
Vatrano scored a power-play goal on five shots and added two PIM in Thursday's 5-4 loss to the Capitals.
Vatrano's game has balanced out with five goals and seven assists over 14 outings in November. The 29-year-old is up to 14 goals, 22 points, 86 shots on net, 42 hits, 22 blocked shots, 33 PIM and a minus-2 rating through 23 appearances this season. He's already over halfway to matching his career high of 41 points from last season, and he's still providing high-end non-scoring production.... See More ... See Less
Ducks' Tristan Luneau: Checks off multiple milestones
Luneau scored a goal on four shots, added an assist and went plus-2 in Thursday's 5-4 loss to the Capitals.
Luneau recorded his first goal and multi-point effort in Thursday's defeat. He tallied at 1:49 of the first period and helped out on a Brock McGinn marker in the third. The 19-year-old Luneau has three points, seven shots on net, four hits, three blocked shots and a plus-2 rating through five appearances this season. He's often been paired with Cam Fowler when in the lineup, though Luneau will still need to stay out of the press box to build up enough momentum to help in fantasy.... See More ... See Less
Ducks' Brett Leason: Two points against old team
Leason scored a goal on three shots, dished an assist and went plus-2 in Thursday's 5-4 loss to the Capitals.
Leason was a leader on offense for the Ducks on Thursday, though he wasn't able to contribute to a win over his former team. The 24-year-old has three points over his last two games, which may help him gain traction in a fourth-line spot. Leason is up to six points, 24 shots on net, 21 hits and a plus-1 rating through 19 contests overall.... See More ... See Less
Ducks' John Gibson: Struggles versus Capitals
Gibson surrendered five goals on 26 shots in Thursday's 5-4 loss to the Capitals.
Gibson couldn't contain a bottom-five offense that was playing the second half of a back-to-back. The 30-year-old netminder has now lost his last six decisions amid the Ducks' eight-game losing streak as a team. This was his ugliest outing in that stretch. Gibson has a 4-10-0 record with a 2.81 GAA and a .906 save percentage through 16 appearances. The road isn't going to get much smoother in the near term -- the Ducks' next two games are both against the Avalanche, including one at the Honda Center on Saturday.... See More ... See Less
Ducks' Ilya Lyubushkin: Slated to play Thursday
Lyubushkin (upper body) is set to play Thursday against Washington.
Lyubushkin couldn't complete Tuesday's 3-1 loss to Vancouver due to the injury, but he won't end up missing a full game. He has two assists, 42 hits and 56 blocks in 22 contests this campaign. Lyubushkin's projected to play on the third pairing alongside Pavel Mintyukov.... See More ... See Less
Ducks' Radko Gudas: Ready to rock
Gudas (lower body) will play Thursday versus the Capitals.
Gudas missed one game with the injury. The 33-year-old blueliner should return to a bottom-four role, where he'll continue provide strong physical play. He's also added seven points in addition to his 58 hits, 47 blocked shots and 37 PIM through 21 contests this season.... See More ... See Less
Ducks' John Gibson: Expected to start Thursday
Gibson is slated to start at home against Washington on Thursday, Derek Lee of The Sporting Tribune reports.
Gibson has a 4-9-0 record, 2.64 GAA and .912 save percentage in 15 contests this season. He's struggled over his last six appearances, posting an 0-5-0 record with a 3.32 GAA and an .889 save percentage. Playing against the Capitals might help end that slump -- Washington ranks 31st offensively this year with just 2.32 goals per game.... See More ... See Less
Ducks' Adam Henrique: Posts power-play helper in loss
Henrique notched a power-play assist in Tuesday's 3-1 loss to the Canucks.
Henrique snapped a four-game point drought with the helper. The 33-year-old has typically seen top-six minutes when Leo Carlsson is resting, as he did Tuesday. Henrique is up to 10 points (four on the power play), 31 shots on net, 19 blocked shots and a minus-5 rating through 21 appearances.... See More ... See Less
Ducks' Frank Vatrano: Adds power-play helper
Vatrano notched a power-play assist, eight shots on goal, three hits and a minus-2 rating in Tuesday's 3-1 loss to the Canucks.
Vatrano helped out on Ryan Strome's second-period tally. After being goal-heavy early in the campaign, Vatrano has balanced out with four goals and seven helpers over 13 outings in November. The 29-year-old continues to return value in fantasy with 21 points (seven on the power play), 81 shots, 42 hits, 21 blocked shots, 31 PIM and a minus-1 rating through 22 appearances.... See More ...

Ducks' Ryan Strome: Strikes on power play in loss
Strome scored a power-play goal on two shots and went minus-2 in Tuesday's 3-1 loss to the Canucks.
Strome got the Ducks on the board in the second period, but his tally was all the scoring they could muster against Thatcher Demko. The goal was Strome's first since Oct. 28. -- he managed five assists in 12 games between the markers. He's up to 16 points (three on the power play), 39 shots on net, 14 hits, 20 PIM and an even plus-minus rating through 21 outings.... See More ... See Less
Ducks' John Gibson: Skid continues
Gibson allowed two goals on 26 shots in Tuesday's 3-1 loss to the Canucks. The third goal was an empty-netter.
Gibson has lost five of his last six outings, with the lone exception being a relief appearance in which he didn't record a decision. Brock Boeser scored in the first period and Elias Pettersson had the decisive goal early in the third. Gibson's down to 4-9-0 with a 2.64 GAA and a .912 save percentage. He's trending in the wrong direction after a solid first month of the season, but Lukas Dostal has struggled in limited action lately, so Gibson's starting role is not in question.... See More ...

Ducks' Ilya Lyubushkin: Questionable to finish game
Lyubushkin sustained an upper-body injury and is questionable to return to Tuesday's game versus the Canucks.
Lyubushkin logged 6:48 of ice time in the first period but was unavailable to begin the second. With Radko Gudas (lower body) dealing with a short-term issue, it's possible the Ducks may need to call up a defenseman from AHL San Diego prior to Thursday's contest versus the Capitals....

Ducks' John Gibson: Starting versus Vancouver
Gibson will protect the road goal versus the Canucks on Tuesday.
Gibson draws a tough assignment this time out, facing one of the strongest offenses and power plays in the league. The 30-year-old has given up 16 goals on 136 shots over his last five games, taking the loss in four of those contests, so he's not a particularly safe fantasy option for this matchup....
