Kevin Shattenkirk News
Anaheim Ducks defenseman Kevin Shattenkirk is battling an illness and won't be able to play Friday against San Jose. The veteran will be replaced in the lineup by Colton White. Anaheim is going through another difficult season and it's had a very negative impact on Shattenkirk's numbers, with him having so far managed only nine points in 35 games without a single goal scored. He has also recorded 44 hits and 49 blocks. White has done even worse with only one point in 16 games, and fantasy managers can safely leave him on the waiver wire.
Anaheim Ducks defenseman Kevin Shattenkirk (lower body) will return to the lineup Monday versus Blues. He returns to action against his former team after missing four games with a lower-body problem. Shattenkirk isn't as productive anymore as he was during his St. Louis days, but he has done decently well on a badly struggling team this season, notching five assists in 14 games with 25 shots, 12 hits and 14 blocks. The 33-year-old is also the lone skater on the team with a positive plus/minus.
Anaheim Ducks defenseman Kevin Shattenkirk suffered a lower-body injury in Wednesday's 4-1 loss to Minnesota. The veteran blue-liner was able to skate for only 7:08 in the game. Fellow rearguard Nathan Beaulieu also exited with an undisclosed injury, so the Ducks were forced to end the game with four defensemen. Shattenkirk is definitely the more important of the two, as he typically plays in every situation and contributes well offensively. He's on five points through 14 games this season, but Shattenkirk was close to averaging 0.50 points per game last term. Beaulieu is a defensive-minded player and is tied for the second-most blocks on the team with 20. Injuries should help Colton White to re-enter the lineup, and he might actually play some reasonable minutes now after averaging only 9:11 of ice time in his first few outings.
Anaheim Ducks defenseman Kevin Shattenkirk found a way onto the scoresheet on Thursday night in Seattle. Shattenkirk scored a goal late in the second period to double the Ducks' lead to two goals at the time. It gave Shattenkirk four goals and 13 points in 15 games. While possession metrics have not been kind to the blueliner, his production has been. Shattenkirk had 15 points in 55 games last year. He is almost there already this year in less than a third of the time.
