Ducks' Rakell Battling For No. 3 Center Gig

News: Rickard Rakell is viewed as the favorite to claim the Ducks' No. 3 center job before training camp ends, Eric Stephens of the Orange County Register reports.
Analysis: The 21-year-old Rickard Rakell is battling another young Swede (William Karlsson) for those duties, but seems to have the inside track, thanks to the 18 games he logged with the Ducks last season. With Saku Koivu announcing his retirement in the offseason, Rakell prepared for an appointment to the third line by adding 10 pounds of muscle in the offseason. He's adapted well to the added responsibility thus far in training camp, but the strong play of Karlsson has kept the competition between the two centers closer than what was initially thought. If Rakell is able to stave off Rakell and win the gig, the Ducks' quality depth on the wing could potentially aid him to a 30-point season.

Ducks' Rakell A Healthy Scratch For Game 5

News: Rickard Rakell will be a healthy scratch for Monday's Game 5 as Mathieu Perreault (lower body) rejoins the lineup, TSN's Mark Masters reports.
Analysis: Rickard Rakell logged just 8:42 of ice time in Game 4, after being scratched for the first three games of the series. Another injury could free up a spot for the 21-year-old, but there's a chance we don't see him again this postseason.

Ducks' Rakell Playing Saturday

News: With Mathieu Perrieault sidelined by a lower-body injury, Rickard Rakell will join the lineup for Saturday's Game 4 against the Kings, TSN's Mark Masters reports.
Analysis: Rickard Rakell, a former first-round draft pick, tallied just four points in 18 NHL games this season. He did, however, pick up a goal and an assist in three appearances during the Ducks' first-round series against the Stars.

Ducks' Rakell Recalled Saturday

News: Rickard Rakell has been recalled from AHL Norfolk, Eric Stephens of the Orange County Register reports.
Analysis: Rickard Rakell is a healthy scratch for Saturday's Game 1, but he could perhaps slot into the lineup at some point during the Ducks' second-round series against the Kings. The 20-year-old former first-round draft pick (2011) tallied 37 points in 46 AHL games this season, but managed just four points (all assists) in 18 NHL appearances.

Ducks Send Rakell To AHL

News: The Ducks have sent Rickard Rakell to AHL Norfolk, the team's official site reports.
Analysis: Rickard Rakell, who has two points in three playoff games to date, is a candidate for recall when the Ducks are looking for some added depth up front, but his demotion could indicate that Mathieu Perreault will be available for Saturday's Game 1 against the Kings.

Rakell Lights Lamp As Ducks Regain Momentum

News: Rickard Rakell scored a goal midway through the first period of a 6-2 defeat of the Stars in Game 5 of the Stanley Cup playoffs on Friday.
Analysis: Friday's goal was the first of Rickard Rakell's postseason career. However, the fact that he has already scored a goal having played in only two playoff games this year, significantly increases the chances that Rakell will see more ice time as the Ducks' Stanley Cup run moves on.

Ducks Recall Rakell

News: Rickard Rakell was recalled from AHL Norfolk on Thursday, Eric Stephens of the Orange County Register reports.
Analysis: Rickard Rakell will likely be on hand to cover for Nick Bonino, who has a lower-body injury and won't play Thursday. Expect to see Rakell slot in as the fourth-line center.

Ducks Demote Rakell

News: Rickard Rakell was reassigned to AHL Norfolk on Wednesday, Eric Stephens of the Orange County Register reports.
Analysis: With Mathieu Perreault (forearm) returning from injured reserve for Wednesday's game vs. the Flames, Rickard Rakell will head back to the minors to create roster space. Rakell appeared in nine games during his time with the Ducks, logging one point and two penalty minutes.

Ducks Bring Up Rakell

News: Rickard Rakell was recalled from AHL Norfolk on Thursday.
Analysis: The 20-year-old made a minimal impact with the Ducks in seven games earlier this season, but he's been highly productive for Norfolk, notching 14 goals and 23 assists over 43 contests. He'll likely play Friday in the event Teemu Selanne (flu) is not ready to play.

Ducks Send Rakell To AHL

News: The Ducks assigned Rickard Rakell to AHL Norfolk on Monday, Eric Stephens of the Orange County Register reports.
Analysis: Rickard Rakell has appeared in seven games with the Ducks, but he will head back to Norfolk with Saku Koivu (head) nearing a return. As a 2011 first-round pick, expect Rakell to be among the top options next time the Ducks need to summon a forward from the minors.

News: Rickard Rakell picked up an assist during the second period of a 6-2 win over the Sabres on Friday.
Analysis: Friday's assist is the first NHL point for the 20-year-old from Sweden. This could be a positive sign for Rickard Rakell's future.

Ducks' Rakell Recalled From AHL

News: Rickard Rakell was recalled from AHL Norfolk on Sunday.
Analysis: Rickard Rakell will be up for his second stint with the Ducks this week, though his stay figures to be a short one this time as well. The team likely just wants some security wing depth for Monday's game, with several players banged up.

Ducks Recall Rakell From AHL

News: Rickard Rakell was recalled by the Ducks on Monday, Eric Stephens of the Orange County Register reports.
Analysis: Rickard Rakell has played in nine games this season with AHL Norfolk, totaling four goals and one assist. A 2011 first-round pick by the Ducks, he'll serve as a depth forward for now.

Rakell Joins Ducks

News: The Ducks have recalled Rickard Rakell from OHL Plymouth.
Analysis: Rickard Rakell, who did not record a point in four games with the Ducks earlier this season, finished up his junior campaign with 44 points in 40 games. The 2011 first-rounder will give the Ducks some depth up front for their playoff run.

Ducks Send Rakell To Juniors

News: The Ducks will return Rickard Rakell to Plymouth of the OHL, TSN's Bob McKenzie reports.
Analysis: The 2011 first-rounder did not record a point in four games for the Ducks and has been a scratch of late, so while being up with the big club was no doubt a valuable experience, seeing regular duty in the OHL going forward can only help the young forward hone his game.

Ducks Keep Rakell In Press Box

News: Rickard Rakell has been held out of the lineup the last six games, but they haven't yet decided whether they'll keep him with the big team or send him back to juniors, the Orange County Register reports.
Analysis: Rickard Rakell can play in one more game before he reaches the threshold that forces the Ducks' decision to keep him or send him down to juniors. "I understand that we need the development," coach Bruce Boudreau said. "But sometimes practicing with NHL players could be just as good as playing with junior players. Having to check Corey Perry in practice is a little different."
