Ducks' Lydman Retires

News: Toni Lydman has officially retired from the NHL.
Analysis: The Ducks never released a formal announcement, but a Finnish paper confirmed the end of the blueliner's career in the NHL, while the Ducks stopped listing Toni Lydman on their official roster.

Ducks' Lydman May Be Considering Retirement

News: There has been speculation that Toni Lydman (concussion) will retire, TSN's Aaron Ward reports.
Analysis: Toni Lydman reportedly turned down two separate offers for $5 million over two seasons. He'll be 36 years old by the time the 2013-14 campaign begins, so it isn't as if retirement is a far-fetched idea. He suffered a concussion during the 2013 Stanley Cup Playoffs, and is still believed to be dealing with post-concussion symptoms.

Ducks' Lydman Suffered Concussion

News: Toni Lydman said he suffered a concussion during Game 3 against the Red Wings, Eric Stephens of the Orange County Register reports.
Analysis: The concussion occurred after the hard hit from the Red Wings' Justin Abdelkader, which resulted in just a five-minute major penalty. The Ducks were eliminated in seven games in the first round by the Red Wings, so Toni Lydman will have a long offseason to recover.

Anaheim's Lydman (Neck/Head) Not Traveling

News: Toni Lydman (neck/head) did not travel with the Ducks to Detroit and is without a return timetable.
Analysis: Toni Lydman figures to miss the remaining two games (if needed) of the series, and is far from a safe bet to return to the ice should the Ducks advance to the second round. Prior to sustaining a sore neck and a migraine headache after absorbing a hit in Saturday's Game 3, Lydman had registered a plus-1 rating in the series.

Ducks' Lydman In Lineup Friday

News: Toni Lydman (illness) is back in the lineup for Friday's game against the Stars, the Orange County Register reports.
Analysis: Toni Lydman missed Wednesday's game with the illness but seems to have recovered enough to get back in action. He may see reduced minutes initially, but then should be back for his regular duty hitting people and blocking shots on defense.

Ducks' Lydman Feeling Better

News: Toni Lydman (flu) took part in Thursday's optional practice, Eric Stephens of the Orange County Register reports.

News: Toni Lydman (flu) will not play Wednesday against the Avalanche, Eric Stephens of the Orange County Register reports.
Analysis: Through seven games this season, Toni Lydman is averaging 20-plus minutes of ice time and has a plus-1 rating. Jordan Hendry was recalled from the AHL and will fill in for Lydman against Colorado, but Lydman is probably no worse than questionable for Friday's tilt.

News: Toni Lydman (upper body) will not play in Tuesday's game against the Canucks, according to the Ducks' official Twitter page.

News: Toni Lydman (upper body) returned to action Sunday against Boston after missing three games. He played 14:33.
Analysis: Toni Lydman only has 13 points, all assists, in 70 games this season, so he wasn't helping much offensively even when he was healthy.

Ducks' Lydman To Return Sunday

News: After missing the last three games with an upper body injury, Toni Lydman participated in the Ducks' full workout Saturday and should return to the lineup Sunday night against Boston, according to the Orange County Register.
Analysis: Toni Lydman's return will finally bring the Ducks' beleaguered blue-line corps back to full strength again. Though his 13 points in 69 games aren't the stuff fantasy dreams are built on, his presence should help lift the team against a tough opponent.

Ducks Without Lydman Wednesday

News: Toni Lydman (upper body) sat out Wednesday's game against the Blues
Analysis: Toni Lydman, who has just 13 assists in 69 games to date, remains in the day-to-day category.

Ducks' Lydman Iffy For Wednesday

News: Toni Lydman (upper body) is a game-time decision for Wednesday's game against the Blues, AnaheimDucks.com reports.
Analysis: Toni Lydman has just 13 assists in 69 games to date, which limits his value to league where his hits (124) or blocks (141) help out.

Lydman Back For Anaheim Monday

News: Toni Lydman (upper body) will play against San Jose on Monday, AnaheimDucks.com reports.
Analysis: Toni Lydman doesn't have much fantasy value in most leagues save for a good blocks-hits combination, but he'll be there if you can use him Monday.

Ducks' Lydman Misses Sunday's Game

News: Toni Lydman was scratched for Sunday's game against the Predators with an upper-body injury.
Analysis: Toni Lydman only has 13 points, all assists, in 69 games, so this isn't likely to have much impact on fantasy teams if he misses any more action.

Lydman Probable For Anaheim

News: Toni Lydman (illness) is expected to play against Dallas on Tuesday, AnaheimDucks.com reports.

Ducks' Lydman Won't Play Sunday, Will Travel To Dallas

News: Toni Lydman (illness) will not play Sunday against Colorado, but will travel with the team Dallas after the game, the team's official Twitter page reports.
Analysis: Toni Lydman was apparently feeling under the weather and unable to go. The 34-year-old defenseman has 10 points (all assists) through 44 games this season, but his minus-8 ratio is a bit concerning. Last season, he was an astonishing plus-32. Fantasy owners can expect him to suit up for Tuesday's game against the Stars.

Ducks' Lydman Spotty In Loss

Analysis: Toni Lydman's turnover early in the first period led to a Henrik Sedin goal, and he was a minus-2 for the game. "You don't expect that from veteran guys," Boudreau said. "But I think it was the veteran guys that created a lot of mistakes tonight. It wasn't the kids. I thought they brought a lot of energy."
