Ducks' Sbisa Ready To Play: Though Luca Sbisa (lower body) is available to play against Detroit on Thursday, the Ducks are slated keep the same defensive pairings they used in Tuesday's Game 1, the team's official site reports. (Updated 5/2/13)
No information available at this time (Updated 5/23/13).
Luca Sbisa, who last suited up for the Ducks on April 13, finished the regular season with a modest total of eight points to go along with 23 penalty minutes in 41 games. (Updated 5/2/13).
Slow and steady wins the race and that's Luca Sbisa -- his career arc will increase at a slow and gentle pace. He has the right tools -- size, mobility, smarts. But his focus so far has been on his shutdown skills, so don't draft him thinking he'll deliver a 40-point season. That will come, but for now, you should count on 25-30 points and a 200/100 split on hits and blocked shots. He will get second-unit power-play time, so he will have sneaky value this season. But his best contributions -- at least for fantasy -- lie in the future. (Updated 8/14/12)
