The Anaheim Ducks have a decent mix of aging star players, decent players establishing themselves in the NHL, and strong prospects, with their strongest position being at center. While the team needs some tinkering, or perhaps just some time, to start a new cycle and become legitimate Stanley Cup contenders again, the foundations are there for a very strong team.

Last season, Ryan Getzlaf missed a huge chunk of the campaign due to injury. This season, the veteran duelist has also been forced to miss games with an injury. Despite his age catching up with him, Getzlaf is an invaluable piece of the Anaheim Ducks’ roster. The team captain finished 2017/18 with 61 points in 56 games – good for second on the team, only trailing Rickard Rakell by seven points having played 21 games less – and was leading the way a third of the way into this season with 18 points.

Hampus Lindholm had another strong season in the NHL as he continues to develop into one of the more trustworthy blueliners. The Swede managed to acquire 13 goals and 31 points with a +16 rating last season and looks good to meet those standards again this year with ten points through the opening 27 games.

John Gibson played 60 games with a save percentage of .926 and a goals against average of 2.43, which are rather strong numbers for a 24-year-old goaltender behind a team of 44 wins last season. This season, the Ducks have suffered many injury setbacks, which has had an impact on Gibson’s stats through his 21 starts. Regardless, he’s one of the strongest young goalies in the league who continues to prove that he can become an elite-level netminder.

From the Day 1, September 13 update, this is how the Anaheim Ducks’ first lines start. It’s a well-rounded batch with scoring ability on either wing, immense strength up the middle, mobile defensemen, and a great goaltender.

Age: 21Role: Two-Way DefensemanHeight: 188cmWeight: 86kgShoots: LeftPotential: Top 4 med

Jacob Larsson is the Ducks’ highest-rated prospect in NHL 19, already possessing mid-80 ratings in many key areas at the position. Larsson’s shot blocking, stick checking, speed, acceleration, agility, durability, wrist shot power, and slap shot power all boast a rating of 85, making him quite a user-friendly skater now.

While not the deepest or most talented prospect pool in the NHL, the Anaheim Ducks certainly have some gems to get excited about. Sometimes, a player’s potential will change during the game, which may be the case if the talented Maxime Comtois – currently sitting on a very stingy Top 9 med potential – gets ice time in the big league. Sam Steel and Isac Lundestrom also headline this crop of future Ducks.
