Revisiting Doug Armstrong’s Drafts – 2011

A few weeks ago, we began to review the St. Louis Blues’ drafts under general manager Doug Armstrong, starting in 2010. That was a good draft, as the Blues selected Jaden Schwartz and Vladimir Tarasenko in the first round, but was weaker in the later rounds. The 2011 Entry Draft was just the opposite. Having surrendered their first-round pick in the trade that sent Erik Johnson to the Colorado Avalanche, the Blues were forced to make due with a bevy of picks in rounds two through seven, but in h...

Red Wings Beat Ducks – Losing Streak Reaches 12

DETROIT — Gustav Nyquist broke a tie with 4:16 left and Darren Helm scored a little later, lifting the Detroit Red Wings over the Anaheim Ducks 3-1 on Tuesday night to extend their franchise-record losing streak to 12 games. Nyquist lifted his stick at the left side of the net and tipped in Danny DeKeyser’s shot from the slot. Helm’s goal with 2:33 remaining gave the Red Wings a two-goal cushion, and Anaheim players dropped their heads on the bench with another defeat imminent. John Gibson stopp...

4 Historic Ducks Deadline Deals

Every season, hockey fans tune into NHL trade deadline coverage eager with anticipation. If their team is a contender, they hope to hear news that they’ve acquired a difference maker. If their team has surrendered hope of making the playoffs, the trade deadline brings hope to fans that the general manager of their favorite team can squeeze future assets out of current talent.

Ducks Q&A with Elliott Teaford: Who would replace Randy Carlyle as coach?

Coming off a weekend in which the Ducks have given fans plenty to talk about, our beat reporter Elliott Teaford accepted reader questions on his Twitter account. Here are some of the questions and answers. (Some questions might be edited for clarity.) Q: My biggest fear is that Bob Murray’s unwillingness to can Randy Carlyle will end up costing this team in the long run through the loss of valuable players being traded away in hopes of turning things around. Do you see any valuable pieces being ...

Should the Ducks fire Randy Carlyle? Let the debate begin

The Ducks should fire Randy Carlyle as their coach after an embarrassing loss Friday to the Pittsburgh Penguins, which extended their franchise-record losing streak to 10 consecutive games heading into a five-game cross-country trip that begins Sunday. The Ducks shouldn’t fire Carlyle because the timing is all wrong for a midseason shakeup in an organization that’s already in the midst of a transition from an elite team to one that’s restructuring on the fly. These things never work as intended....

Rask Approaching Bruins Greatness

There’s simply no player more polarizing in recent Boston Bruins’ history than Tuukka Rask. For fans of any of the other 30 teams in the NHL, that may not seem correct. As far as the rest of the league is concerned, players like Brad Marchand, Milan Lucic, among others, have been lightning rods for criticism despite their importance to the Bruins each and every game. Related: Bruins Benefiting From Rask’s Resurgence Still, there’s no discussion that’s created a bigger divide among Bruins’ fans t...

Should the Ducks Press the Playoff Panic Button?

Monday’s loss to the Edmonton Oilers may be the lowest point of the Anaheim Ducks’ season. The 4-0 defeat meant the Ducks dropped their eighth straight game, tying a franchise record. Specifically, the Oilers’ fourth goal might have been rock bottom. Milan Lucic dominated Brandon Montour to the point where he did exactly what the Ducks are doing now (falling on their backside), eventually leading to Leon Draisaitl scoring the goal. All is not lost though. The Ducks are firmly in the playoff h...

Oilers Bounce Back by Burying Ducks

ANAHEIM, Calif. — Connor McDavid and Leon Draisaitl scored again, Cam Talbot made 39 saves for his first shutout this season and the Edmonton Oilers earned their second victory in nine games by beating the skidding Anaheim Ducks 4-0 on Sunday night. It was a strong bounce-back win for the Oilers, who lost 4-0 to Los Angeles on Saturday night. They scored three goals in the first period for the second time this season and controlled action on both ends of the ice despite being outshot 39-24. McDa...

Ducks turn to hard work for solutions to ending their 8-game losing streak

ANAHEIM — The one-on-one battles raged Monday at Honda Center. The Ducks’ practice was filled with them, from beginning to end, less than 24 hours after they dropped a 4-0 decision to the Edmonton Oilers that extended their losing streak to eight consecutive games. “I don’t think we’ve been through this long of a stretch, so it’s tough to remember, tough to really say,” veteran left wing Andrew Cogliano said when asked to draw on his vast NHL experience to recall how the team ended an extended s...

Ducks Prospects Knocked Out of World Junior Championships

The 2019 World Junior Championships (WJC) recently wrapped up. This is a tournament in which players can stand out early in their careers and start to make a name for themselves. Last year, Sam Steel and Maxime Comtois helped Team Canada win a gold medal. In 2013, John Gibson backstopped Team USA to gold in a spectacular performance. What standouts might this year bring? This year, it was a quick and disappointing WJC for Anaheim Ducks prospects as none of them were able to make it past the quar...

ANAHEIM — Rickard Rakell ditched the red no-contact jersey he wore during the Ducks’ practice Thursday for a white one Saturday. He skated with Ryan Getzlaf and Pontus Aberg, a sign he could be set for a return to the lineup for Sunday’s game against the Edmonton Oilers. Cam Fowler was paired with Josh Manson for Saturday’s practice at Honda Center, a familiar defense tandem and a sign he also might be ready to play again Sunday. Fowler was easy to identify, the only one on the ice wearing a ful...

The 19-year-old Ducks prospect was then set upon by cyberbullies on social media. It was intense, threatening and, according to one Canadian politician, racist. Some responses to Comtois’ Instagram account also offered support in the hours after Canada was eliminated from the annual tournament. ...
