With the NHL regular season right around the corner, TSN.ca profiles each team leading up to puck drop. Next up is the Anaheim Ducks, who look to take that next step towards Cup contention with new centre Ryan Kesler in the fold. Catch up on their summer moves and the issues they face this season, as well as Craig Buttons analysis of their top prospect and an analytical breakdown by TSNs Scott Cullen. Division: Pacific GM:Bob Murray Head Coach: Bruce Boudreau 2013-14: 54-20-8 (1st in Pacific) Playoffs:Lost in Second Round Goals For:263 (1st) Goals Against:203 (9th) PP:16% (22nd) PK:82.2% (13th) That Was Then: Last season was arguably Anaheims most successful since winning the Stanley Cup in 2007. The Ducks flourished last October, going 10-3-1 and getting stellar goaltending from 24-year-old Frederik Andersen. He posted six straight wins in his first six NHL games and kept Anaheim hot in November. By December, the Ducks kept running along, going 11-1-1 while riding a season-high 10-game winning streak. Ryan Getzlaf and Corey Perry were on a tear, combining for 30 points in 13 games. Anaheim followed that up with an even more impressive January. The Ducks posted eight straight wins following their 10-game winning streak. From Dec. 6 to Jan. 15, they collected 36 out of a possible 38 points winning 18 of 19 games. The Ducks clinched their second straight Pacific Division title on Apr. 10 with a win against the San Jose Sharks. They capped off the regular season by clinching the Western Conference crown on Apr. 12 with a shootout win against the Los Angeles Kings. Anaheim finished the season with their best record in franchise history at 54-20-8. They set club records for wins (54) and points (116) in a season. The Ducks also finished one point behind the Boston Bruins in the race for the Presidents Trophy. Once again, the duo of Getzlaf and Perry carried the brunt of the offensive load. The captain finished the season second in the league with 87 points while Perry followed suit with 82 and finished second to only Alexander Ovechkin with 43 goals. Andersen managed to impress, going 20-5 with a .923 save percentage and 2.29 goals against average, but he wasnt the only rookie goalie netminder in the organization that made noise. Twenty-one-year-old John Gibson was called up in April when Andersen went down with an injury and had the same positve effect as the Dane. He went 3-0 with a 1.33 goals against average in his short stay with the team. The Ducks faced the Dallas Stars in the first round of the playoffs, taking a 3-0 series lead only to see the Stars climb back within one. Nick Bonino, however, sent Anaheim to the second round with the overtime-winner in Game 6 of the series. The second round posed a tougher challenge with the Kings. The Kings took a quick 2-0 series lead and Gibson was called upon again for Game 4. Head coach Bruce Boudreau made a risky move by starting the young goalie, but the gamble paid dividends. Gibson backstopped the Ducks to two straight wins - including a shutout - and propelled Anaheim to a 3-2 series lead. But just like Kings did throughout the 2013 playoffs, they erased the deficit eliminating the Ducks in Game 7. Scott Cullens Analytics Ducks 2013-14 stats by Quarter Games GPG GAA SH% SV% SAF% PTS% 1-20 3.35 2.35 10.6% .932 53.5% .775 21-41 2.95 2.48 9.0% .918 50.3% .714 42-62 3.38 2.10 9.5% .937 49.1% .714 63-82 3.15 2.85 10.2% .914 51.9% .625 NHL AVG 2.67 2.67 7.8% .922 50.0% .562 Key: GPG= goals per game, GAA= goals-against per game, SH%= even-strength shooting percentage, SV%= even-strength save percentage, SAF%= score-adjusted Fenwick percentage (differential of shot attempts faced vs. shot attempts, excluding blocked shots, adjusted for game score), PTS%= percentage of available points. Analysis: Games 1-20: Very good possession stats coupled with dominant percentages had Ducks flying from the get-go. Games 21-41: Possession and goaltending slipped, as did shooting percentage, but Ducks were still finishing at a high rate. Games 42-62: Subpar possession was overwhelmed by exceptional percentages, including their best run of goaltending for the season. Games 63-82: Jonas Hiller struggled late, so save percentage dipped, but Ducks kept winning with improving possession numbers and exceptional finishing. Key 2014 Additions: Dany Heatley, Ryan Kesler, Jason LaBarbera, Clayton Stoner, Nate Thompson Key 2014 Subtractions: Nick Bonino, Jonas Hiller, Saku Koivu, Mathieu Perreault, Stephane Robidas, Luca Sbisa, Teemu Selanne, Daniel Winnik This Is Now: The Ducks made a lot of changes during the off-season to become stronger in the ever-competitive Western Conference. The biggest move was the acquisition of Ryan Kesler from the Vancouver Canucks. With Getzlaf and Kesler, Anaheim gets a potent one-two punch at centre. Kesler also adds size to a squad that was lacking in that department a season ago. The Michigan native has scored 20-plus goals in six of the last seven seasons and helps a power play that was ranked 22nd overall last year. However, Anaheim gave up their third-leading scorer of last season in the deal, moving Bonino, along with Luca Sbisa. With the departures of Mathieu Perreault, Teemu Selanne and Saku Koivu, the Ducks added depth up front with winger Dany Heatley on a one-year contract. The two time 50-goal scorer looks to rejuvenate his career and may have a chance during the season to play alongside Perry and Getzlaf. They also solidified their defence adding Clayton Stoner to a squad that already boasts youngsters Cam Fowler, Sami Vatanen and Hampus Lindholm. The Ducks also let Jonas Hiller sign with the Calgary Flames, so the young tandem of Andersen and Gibson will duel for the starting job in goal this season. Jason LaBarbera was added on for goaltending depth.

He strikes an imposing figure, but he can just as easily skate past a defender as power by one. Goalie John Gibson is eligible for the 2014-15 Calder Trophy as rookie of the year, but is rated a lock for the Ducks roster so hes not considered a candidate for the teams top prospect. But John has been a dominant goalie in junior, winning a U-18 Gold, World Junior Gold and World Championship Bronze all before the age of 20. He debuted in the NHL last season, including playoff starts and on a team built to contend for a Stanley Cup, he has the capability to backstop them to a championship. Fantasy - Cullens Player to Watch Patrick Maroon It took time for Maroon, a power forward, to stick in the NHL, playing only 15 games prior to last season, but he was able to score and put up penalty minutes in the American Hockey League, scoring more than 20 goals four times and registering more than 100 penalty minutes three times. He didnt burst onto the scene last year, either, scoring seven points in 25 games through the end of December, but then opportunities started coming for Maroon, and he started to produce. He earned more ice time, even getting chances to play with Ryan Getzlaf and Corey Perry on the Ducks top line and he finished with a flourish, scoring 15 points in his last 18 regular season games. If Maroon can earn and extra couple of minutes of ice per game, he could be in position to jump significantly from last years 11-goal, 29-point rookie season.

Re-signed by the club to a one-year, two-way (NHL/AHL) contract on July 5, Bass appeared in three preseason games with Columbus prior to breaking a bone in his hand on Sept. http://www.cheapeaglesjerseyssale.com/. So it was understandable if he was a little shaky early in his return to the Texas Rangers rotation. He spent most of the outing searching for his best stuff, but still managed to shut down the struggling Minnesota Twins offence. Malcolm Jenkins Jersey .

His Chicago Blackhawks teammates werent shocked when he found it. Kanes career has been defined by his brilliance in the Blackhawks biggest moments, and his tiebreaking goal with 3:45 to play in Game 6 of the Western Conference finals will rank among the best.GLENDALE, Ariz. -- Los Angeles Dodgers right-hander Zack Greinke left his start against the Arizona Diamondbacks on Thursday after throwing just four pitches because of a mild right calf strain. "I think its minor, but well see," Greinke said. "I dont know exactly what it was, but it felt kind of like a cramp." Grienke was making his first spring start after saying he had "zero interest" making the trip for the Dodgers two regular-season games in Sydney, Australia, March 22-23 against Arizona. But now Geinke says hed like to start a game Sydney Cricket Ground. "If were going to be there, which obviously we are, then, yes, Id like to pitch over there," he said. "Im looking forward to flying over there. "No one wants me to say it this way, but in my vote, if we could go over there, my vote was not to," he said. "But more people wanted to go than not. So, now that we are going, I want to be there. I dont want to not go and have the rest of the team go and have to play and me sit here watching. I also dont want to go over there and watch. I want to go over there and play, since thats what weree doing.dddddddddddd" His initial comments, he said, were based on concerns that the trip would alter his spring training. "Its just the routine thing," he said. "I want to pitch good. I want to win games. When youre forced to do something youre not used to doing, its harder to be able to do it at the best of your abilities. Its still possible, but it makes it harder. "Ive never been real big on what peoples perceptions are of me," Grienke added. "The only goal is to try to win as many games as possible." Greinke left the mound after throwing two pitches to the Diamondbacks second hitter, Cliff Pennington. He retired Tony Campana on two pitches. Following the second pitch to Pennington, Dodgers manager Don Mattingly and Stan Conte, chief of the clubs medical staff, rushed to the mound. Greinke threw a couple of warmup pitches and then headed for the clubhouse. "I just was walking around the mound a little bit," Greinke said. "I didnt think I was going to need to come out this time, but after talking to them, thats what they decided. Id like to see how it feels later."
