The 2012-2013 Ducks continue to hold down 8th spot in the west, winning 3 of their last 4. Their only loss in that stretch came against a tough New York Rangers team, who held on for a 4-3 win. Without Getzlaf, the Ducks have slipped from owning the division to being 3rd in said division, but with the recent injuries of Saku Koivu, Brandon Mcmillan and Andrew Cogliano, the Ducks were digging deep into the AHL to find character guys to fill these big holes. With the return of Mcmillan and Cogliano, the Ducks seem to be in better shape, but need their 1 and 3 centers in Getzlaf and Koivu back ASAP if this team wants to go anywhere.
Record 17-10-3 (8th in West)

Time will tell if the team can survive the next two weeks, but if they can, the ducks will need to make a couple moves up front and maybe one on the backend to solidify their roster. There is not a win-now mentality, but if the team gels together, a couple big pieces may be considered, being Selanne's and Koivu's presumable last seasons.

Big deal for the Ducks to get another young dman to maybe fill a bottom role, currently injured though.
