Analysis:Dan Sexton spent some time with the Ducks in 2010-11, but he was stuck in the AHL for the entire 2011-12 campaign. The 25-year-old could get another look from the Ducks once the lockout is over, but it's doubtful he'd land a large role on the team.

Analysis: Sexton avoids the arbitration process by signing this new contract.

He's had 32 points (13 G, 19 A) in 88 games at the NHL level compared to 29 points (14 G, 15 A) in the minors. He's best viewed as organizational depth at this point in his career.

Analysis: Sexton has totaled six points (3 G,3 A) in 26 games with the Ducks this season. He'll head back to Syracuse to get more ice time on a consistent basis.
News: Sexton grabbed his first goal since being recalled, scoring in Thursday's loss to Toronto.
Analysis: This immensely talented winger has been up and down in terms of his production and time with the NHL. He still as more potential than production, but his name is highly worth remembering as he looks to cement a spot in Orange County.
News: Sexton, recently called back up, recorded an assist in Wednesday's 4-1 loss to visiting Nashville.
Analysis: Sexton is up only as long as Jason Blake (shoulder) is on the shelf and would be the likely candidate to yo-yo back to the AHL. If he can put together some solid games, like tonight's effort, Sexton could stick a little longer. However this plays out, he makes a poor fantasy options for all but the deepest of the leagues (and even then)...

News: The Ducks have recalled D Brett Festerling, D Brendan Mikkelson, RW Dan Sexton and G Timo Pielmeier from the minors.
Analysis: Apart from Sexton, who is a decent prospect, the rest of these players are pretty much just organizational depth and are likely only up to increase the numbers at practice until the Olympics are over. Continue to ignore them in Fantasy play.
News: The Ducks have sent down RW Dan Sexton in order to make room for G Justin Pogge.
Analysis: Sexton is one of those good stories about a player that was overlooked as a junior skater, but he has worked his way from obscurity to a potential starring role in the NHL. Sexton is more of a long-term Fantasy keeper and low-end flier in seasonal formats for the time being.
News:The Sports Xchange reports Ducks RW Dan Sexton's scoring pace has slowed some since his first few NHL games but he had an assist against St. Louis on Saturday and has two goals and five assists in his last nine games.
Analysis: Sexton has been seeing some time on the second line in the absence of Teemu Selanne (jaw). Sexton is one of those good stories about a player that was overlooked as a junior skater, but he has worked his way from obscurity to a potential starring role in the NHL. Sexton is more of a long-term Fantasy keeper and low-end flier in seasonal formats.
News:The Sports Xchange reports Ducks RW Dan Sexton has slowed since his torrid start to his NHL career. An assist Sunday against Chicago was just the second point in the last six games for the rookie, who had four goals and three assists in his first six games.
Analysis: You kind had to figure that Sexton was going to hit a rookie wall. Even the best prospects don't experience non-stop success throughout their first NHL season. Once Sexton started to appear on scouting reports, teams paid more attention to how to minimize his impact. Sexton is an up-and-coming prospect and might stick with Anaheim, but he is a low-end Fantasy option until he gets back on track.
News: Ducks RW Dan Sexton tallied a pair of assists Thursday against the Stars. It was his first assists since tallying two on Dec. 16 against the Canucks. He does have two goals in his previous six games.
Analysis: Sexton has totaled six goals and five assists in his first 13 games since being called up from the minors. The undrafted free agent was only starting to make a name for himself last season in college at Bowling Green. He turned pro after the year and has been on a tear ever since. Sexton is doing enough to keep his roster spot with the Ducks, but we worry his production will slow down once teams figure out how to slow him down. He still remains more of a low-end Fantasy option.
News: Ducks RW Dan Sexton had a goal, assist and plus-2 rating during Friday's game against the Red Wings. Sexton's goal came with 55 seconds left in the second when his harmless looking shot from the right corner deflected in off Jimmy Howard's stick. Sexton has three goals in his last two games, his second and third in the NHL.
Analysis: Sexton, an undrafted free agent, was recalled from the minors after Teemu Selanne went down with a broken hand. The Bowling Green standout is in his first year of pro hockey. Between stints in the ECHL and AHL, Sexton had 14 goals and 29 points in 23 games. He seems just fine playing pro hockey. He took an Anaheim rookie record nine shots on Tuesday against the Stars as he scored twice. Sexton is a player popping up on Fantasy radars, but he is still a low-end flier until he shows long-term success.
