Ducks Transactions

Coming off a tumultuous season that culminated in a rough opening-round sweep against the San Jose Sharks, the Anaheim Ducks are looking to avoid an extended downward trend into non-contender status. To do that, they will need to, among other things, maintain enough salary cap flexibility to lock up their young talent while also being able to stay in play for additions that could help their team down the line via trade or free agency. With nearly $24 million per season tied up in the contracts of veterans Ryan Getzlaf, Corey Perry, and the deteriorating Ryan Kesler, the Ducks will need to carefully maneuver in order to remain a contender in the long-term. Ducks' Restricted Free Agents Right now, the Ducks have about $9.5 million in cap space, with three key restricted free agents (RFAs) still floating without contracts: Nick Ritchie, Ondrej Kase, and Brandon Montour. Montour, the slick-skating right-handed defenseman who has shown promise but needs to be more consistent, is...

Ducks History

Teemu Selanne's No. 8 seemed a bit lonely up in the rafters of Honda Center. There was at least one number that clearly belonged next to that of the great Finnish Flash. On Monday, the Anaheim Ducks announced that they will (finally) make good on that and another player's number. The organization announced that Paul Kariya's No. 9 and Scott Niedermayer's No. 27 will be retired during the 2018-19 season—specifically, on Oct. 21 and Feb. 17, respectively—forever enshrining the two great Ducks players as cornerstones in the franchise's history. https://twitter.com/AnaheimDucks/status/1016402101339996160 Kariya Finally Joins Selanne Perhaps the main reason for the slight delay in the Ducks retiring Kariya's number had something to do with some potential lingering hard feelings over his departure from the club in 2003, and/or his frustration with the game's perceived inadequate actions when it comes to preventing and punishing hits to the head. In any event, Kariya's...

Ducks Prospects

It's been over four months since Troy Terry skated in PyeongChang as a member of the men's Olympic ice hockey team, more than 14 months since he became a national champion and about 17 months since he went five-hole at the 2017 WJC (multiple times) and won gold. For being just 20 years old, Terry has more accomplishments on his resume than most players his age. Something he does lack though is games in the NHL. After losing to Ohio State in the regionals of the 2018 Frozen Four tournament with his defending champion Denver Pioneers, Terry signed an entry-level deal with the Anaheim Ducks. He only saw two regular-season games and watched a dismal sweeping of the Ducks from the press box in the playoffs. If anything's for sure, though, he should have a spot on the roster for the 2018-19 season. Who is Troy Terry? Troy Terry, for many, was known as a fifth-round pick and not much else, unfortunately. As one of the leaner, 'undersized' players on most of the rosters he's played on,...

Ducks Transactions

The Anaheim Ducks have been relatively quiet in terms of the magnitude of their free-agent signings since the July 1 free-agent frenzy period began, but they have added a number of new faces to the organization. These transactions are altogether minor in nature, as general manager Bob Murray's goal seems to be to not overspend and over-commit, and instead address the club's depth via low-risk signings. Across July 1 and July 2, the Ducks agreed to terms with defenseman Luke Schenn, forward Brian Gibbons, forward Carter Rowney, forward Anton Rodin, forward Ben Street, and goaltender Jared Coreau. Ducks Sign Luke Schenn The Ducks need some depth for their bottom defense pair, and while they could have rolled the dice with their promising youngsters and given their needed youth/speed movement a necessary injection, Murray instead decided to add Schenn, who was the fifth overall pick (by the Toronto Maple Leafs) in the 2008 NHL Draft but has never really lived up to that billing. The...
