Ducks' Beleskey A Late Scratch

News: Matt Beleskey will not play in Sunday's game against the Devils, after suffering a lower-body injury during warmups.
Analysis: With Matt Beleskey scratched at the last second, either Tomas Fleischmann or Emerson Etem will likely join the lineup. The Ducks may have another update after the conclusion of Sunday's game, while their next contest is scheduled for Wednesday against the Oilers.

Ducks' Beleskey Ripples Mesh Tuesday

News: Matt Beleskey scored his 22nd of the season in a loss to Columbus on Tuesday.
Analysis: The marker is Matt Beleskey's first since returning recently from a shoulder injury. He was a healthy scratch Sunday night in New York, so hopefully the goal will keep him in the lineup and give him a boost of confidence moving forward.

Ducks' Beleskey Scratched Sunday

News: Matt Beleskey was a healthy scratch for the Ducks in their loss against the Rangers on Sunday.
Analysis: Matt Beleskey was the latest to join Anaheim's revolving door of scratches, as he was forced to make way for Emerson Etem. Beleskey hasn't recorded a point in four games since returning from a shoulder injury that sidelined him for almost a month, very disappointing considering that he is still currently third on the Ducks with 21 goals.

Ducks' Beleskey Returns To Lineup

News: Matt Beleskey (shoulder) will return to the lineup Friday against the Wild, Eric Stephens of the Orange County Register reports.
Analysis: Matt Beleskey will play for the first time since Feb. 15 and immediately rejoin Ryan Getzlaf and Corey Perry on the top line. The winger has enjoyed plenty of success playing alongside those two stars this season, as his 21 goals -- including eight of the game-winning variety -- in 56 games would attest. Assuming he ends up sticking in the top-six role, Beleskey would make for a high-quality pickup in most formats if he's available on the waiver wire.

Matt Beleskey

Ducks' Beleskey Likely To Play Friday

News: Coach Bruce Boudreau said Matt Beleskey (shoulder) is likely to play Friday against the Wild, Helene Elliott of the Los Angeles Times reports.
Analysis: The Ducks activated Matt Beleskey from injured reserve in advance of Wednesday's game against the Flames, but the team opted to make him a healthy scratch. It was more than likely just a precautionary move on the team's part to rest him for another day, but if Beleskey is able to participate in Friday's morning skate without incident, he'll likely be cleared to play.

Ducks Activate Beleskey From Injured Reserve

News: Matt Beleskey (shoulder) was removed from injured reserve Wednesday, Helene Elliott of the LA Times reports.
Analysis: Matt Beleskey will not play in Wednesday's game, but with him no longer on the injured list, he will have a chance to play in Anaheim's next contest Friday against the Wild.

Matt Beleskey

Ducks' Beleskey To Remain Out Wednesday

News: Matt Beleskey (shoulder) will not play Wednesday against the Flames.
Analysis: Matt Beleskey has been skating with the Ducks in recent days and is traveling with the team on its current road trip, but coach Bruce Boudreau indicated the forward isn't quite ready to play yet. With another day of practice, Beleskey could be cleared to play on the final game of the trip Friday versus the Wild.

Ducks' Beleskey (Shoulder) To Travel With Team

News: Matt Beleskey (shoulder) will travel to Canada for Monday's game in Vancouver and Wednesday's game in Calgary, Lance Pugmire of the LA Times reports.
Analysis: It thus seems that Matt Beleskey has a shot to return during the upcoming three-game road trip, which concludes a bit south of the border with next Friday's game in Minnesota. He won't play in this Friday's game against the Penguins but can be considered day-to-day thereafter.

Ducks' Beleskey Resumes Shooting

News: Matt Beleskey (shoulder) has been able to take shots and one-timers, Eric Stephens of the Orange County Register reports.
Analysis: Matt Beleskey is less than a week removed from his latest timetable of being about a week to 10 days away from a return, so his progress is obviously an encouraging sign. He appears to be on pace to return at some point next week, provided he's able to participate in practice before being activated.

Ducks' Beleskey At Least A Week Away

News: Matt Beleskey (shoulder) is considered about a week to 10 days away from returning from injured reserve, Eric Stephens of the Orange County Register reports.
Analysis: Matt Beleskey resumed skating Friday, but will apparently need several days of practice before team doctors sign off on his activation. Though he's already missed almost two weeks of action, Beleskey still ranks second on the team in goals (21), trailing only Corey Perry (24).

Ducks' Beleskey Hoping To Skate By Week's End

News: Matt Beleskey (shoulder) hopes to be back on the ice by the end of the week, Eric Stephens of the Orange County Register reports.
Analysis: Matt Beleskey was projected to miss 2-to-4 weeks after suffering the injury Feb. 15, so he's rapidly closing in on the short end of that timetable. Since Beleskey probably won't resume skating until the weekend and will need to practice with the team at least a couple of times, don't expect him back until next week at the earliest.

Ducks' Beleskey Out 2-To-4 Weeks

News: The Ducks announced Tuesday that Matt Beleskey (upper body) would be sidelined for 2-to-4 weeks, Eric Stephens of the Orange County Register reports.
Analysis: The Ducks' leading goal scorer after Corey Perry, Matt Beleskey's absence will create a sizable void in the team's top six through the end of February. It's not immediately clear who will step in to fill Beleskey's void, but candidates could include Devante Smith-Pelly, Jakob Silfverberg, and Andrew Cogliano, all of whom have previously received looks on scoring lines this season.

Ducks Place Beleskey On IR

News: Matt Beleskey (upper body) was placed on injured reserve Tuesday.
Analysis: With Matt Beleskey staring at a 2-to-4-week absence, the Ducks moved quickly to stash him on IR and fill his roster spot. Emerson Etem was recalled from AHL Norfolk in a corresponding move.

Ducks' Beleskey Suffers Upper Body Injury

News: Matt Beleskey left Sunday's game against the Capitals with an upper body injury.
Analysis: Matt Beleskey was knocked into the boards during the first period, and while he didn't stay down on the ice for long, he quickly skated off to the locker room. He was unable to return to the contest, finishing with just 3:23 of ice time.

Beleskey's Two Points Lift Ducks

News: Matt Beleskey scored a goal, assisted on the Ducks' other goal and went plus-2 in Thursday's 2-1 win over Carolina.
Analysis: Matt Beleskey had been producing pretty sparsely of late, with just two points over his prior six games, but he's had a nose for the net in big moments this year -- eight of his 21 goals have been game-winners.

Ducks' Beleskey To Skate On Top Line

News: Matt Beleskey will skate on the first line alongside Ryan Getzlaf and Corey Perry in Tuesday's game against the Hurricanes, the Orange County Register reports.
Analysis: Matt Beleskey will swap places with Patrick Maroon, who has four goals and four assists over the last six games. Both players have plenty of experience skating alongside Perry and Getzlaf, so the change won't necessarily last for long.

Ducks' Beleskey Nabs Game-Winner

News: Matt Beleskey supplied the game's first goal (and eventual winner) in Tuesday's 4-0 rout of the Canucks.
Analysis: With his 18th goal of the season, Matt Beleskey has already doubled up his 2013-14 total while playing in eight fewer games. A downturn in his assist totals have prevented a huge point season from materializing, but his surplus of goals have allowed him to climb up to second place on the team in that category.

Ducks' Beleskey Set To Return

News: Matt Beleskey is slated to return to the Ducks' lineup Friday against New Jersey, Eric Stephens of the Orange County Register reports.
Analysis: Matt Beleskey, who was a healthy scratch Wednesday against Toronto, checks back into the lineup with 17 goals and 22 points in 43 games to date. Based on line rushes, he'll work on a trio with Rickard Rakell and Devante Smith-Pelly on Friday.

Ducks' Beleskey Gets Scratched Wednesday

News: Matt Beleskey was a healthy scratch for Wednesday's game against the Maple Leafs.
Analysis: It's not too often that a 17-goal scorer at the midway point of the season finds himself on the bench, but that was precisely the predicament Matt Beleskey found himself in for the forward-rich Ducks. His outstanding numbers on the season probably make it worthwhile to stash him in deeper leagues for the time being, but with a return to a top-six role no longer guaranteed, Beleskey could find difficulty recapturing his early-season success.

Beleskey's Late Goal Lifts Ducks Over Blues

News: Matt Beleskey scored the game-winning goal in a 4-3 win over St. Louis on Friday.
Analysis: Matt Beleskey scored his 16th goal of the season, good enough to rank 14th in the league. The former fourth-round pick is having a career season and shooting at 16.7 percent, compared to last year's 8.0 percent and his career average of 9.6 percent. It's a small hint that Beleskey isn't as good of a goal scorer as his 16 goals suggest, but it's clear he's a vastly improved player, especially with his skating. Given Bruce Boudreau's ability to bring out the best offense of his players, Beleskey is a decent option for goals but not much else.

Fourth Game-Winner For Ducks' Beleskey

News: Matt Beleskey potted his 15th goal -- and fourth game-winner -- in the third period of Thursday's 2-1 decision against Montreal.
Analysis: Matt Beleskey's on a wild and wonderful pace right now; if he were to maintain his current scoring rates, he'd finish an 82-game season with 36 goals and 10 assists. And 10 of those goals would be game-winners.

Ducks' Beleskey Delivers In The Clutch

News: Matt Beleskey scored the game-winning goal, was credited with four hits, had three shots on goal, and was a game-high plus-3 in Friday's win over Minnesota.
Analysis: How clutch has this guy been? Matt Beleskey now has a career-high 13 goals this season, including three game-winners -- tops on the team. While his point total (15) isn't too impressive, Beleskey is now the sixth highest goal-scorer in the NHL and sports a remarkable plus-10 rating on the year. This guy has lit the lamp more often than Alex Ovechkin and Evgeni Malkin this season. Playing on the second line with Ryan Kesler, Beleskey is worth a look right now.

Ducks' Beleskey Heating Up

News: Matt Beleskey was credited with his second game-winning goal of the season in Monday's win over the Bruins.
Analysis: Matt Beleskey buried his lone shot attempt out of the night, finding an opening after a Ryan Getzlaf faceoff victory to nab his 12th goal of the season, good for sixth in the league. He'll continue to enjoy ample value skating alongside Ryan Getzlaf and Corey Perry.

Ducks' Beleskey Picks Up Two Points

News: Matt Beleskey scored a goal and dished out an assist in Tuesday's win over the Flames.
Analysis: Matt Beleskey's goal came in accidental fashion, as his attempted pass to Corey Perry bounced off the skate of the Flames' Kris Russell and into the net to give the Ducks a 1-0 lead. The tally nonetheless continues a hot run of production for Beleskey, who has been assuming a top-line role next to Perry and Ryan Getzlaf. The winger has three goals and four points in his last four games.

Ducks' Beleskey Nabs Goal In Loss

News: Matt Beleskey registered his seventh goal of the season in Friday's loss to the Coyotes.
Analysis: Matt Beleskey saw 18:32 of action Friday, about four minutes more than he had been averaging for the season. The uptick in ice time was likely due in large part to the absence of Corey Perry (illness), so look for Beleskey to see less frequent usage once he returns to action.
