2019-20 Preview:

Looking at the Anaheim Ducks there is some hope that they will be better under new head coach Dallas Eakins who will be familiar with many of the players on the team he coached in San Diego of the AHL. Also with the prospect of forwards Sam Steel, Max Comtois, and Troy Terry having bigger roles if they can become full time players on the Ducks this season, the influx of youth and speed that they would bring could help the Ducks who were last in the NHL in goals scored last season (196).

 

The Ducks, however, will be in great need of goal scoring as the team will not be able to rely solely on captain Ryan Getzlaf (14 goals and 34 assists), and forward Jakob Silfverberg (team leading 24 goals) if they look to be successful this season. The Ducks are also in a tough spot on defence as they lost three defensemen this offseason to free agency. Plus with the buyout of veteran forward Corey Perry, and the long term injury to forward Ryan Kessler due to hip surgery the Ducks will be looking to their young players to step up this season.
