No. 15: Anaheim Ducks
Season record: 9-7-3
The Ducks are on somewhat of a rise despite some pretty “meh” offense so far. Corey Perry and Ryan Getzlaf have shooting percentages of less than 7 (Getzlaf’s is 2.9), and Ryan Kesler is the leading goal scorer with eight.
Jonathan Bernier has probably been better than expected in net, carrying a .933/2.06 slashline. But he’s not the starter, as John Gibson has drawn 14 of 19 starts. His .908/2.59 slashline is good but not great.
Anaheim’s idea of attack is still a physical assault on opposing teams, and it’s led to them producing about as many goals as they’ve given up. That’ll probably wind up being OK in what’s shaping up to be a weak Pacific Division.
