"As players, we’re not sure what penalties are and what they aren’t.As the ebbs and flows of the game (go), it’s hard to understand what’s going on all the time and maintaining what we want to do to compete.
It's unclear if Vermette is injured or if he's just being made a healthy scratch. If Vermette is hurt, we'll make sure to update his status.
Francois Beauchemin will serve as a healthy scratch in this one. Rakell is on a five-game point streak and has only been held off the scoresheet once in his last eight contests.
Kerdiles has eight goals and 19 points in 23 games with the San Diego Gulls of the AHL this season.
He hasn't earned a point in three career matches with the Ducks, which includes two appearances in 2017-18. That brings him up to 10 goals and 31 points in 44 games.
Don't expect him to carry much fantasy value going forward. Beyond that though, very little is known about his recovery, so it's hard to know what his chances of returning anytime this season are.
It would be best to continue to regard him as being out indefinitely until more information is available.
While the 22-year-old isn't likely to develop into a star, he could continue to gradually grow offensively over the next couple years. 23 when that run started, Fowler is tied for first place among defensemen in points.
He now has six goals and 24 points in 43 contests, which puts the possibility of him matching or surpassing his career-high of 40 points on the table.
I didn’t feel like anybody was in danger at any point on the ice but somehow there was 10 penalties or whatever there was. And that’s not allowing players to play and be themselves and compete." Getzlaf's reference to 10 penalties was in regards to how many minors (it was actually 11) that Anaheim took on Saturday, but that contest was hardly an isolated incident for the Ducks.
The Ducks' 219 minor penalties this season are the highest in the league, so it's not surprising that the Ducks would be frustrated there.
He is making a name for himself as a clutch player with his new team.
