Matt Halischuk scored his fifth goal of the season Monday. It's been a struggle for Halischuk to get in the lineup due to injury and coaching decisions and he's now seen action in 40 games.
"It's good to be in the lineup right now and I'm like everybody trying to earn the new coach's trust," said Halischuk. "Playing with (Evander Kane) and (Eric O'Dell) has been good. O'Dell sees the ice well and Kane has that speed and one-on-one ability. I'm just trying to retrieve pucks and go to the net. Kane has the ability to get the puck on net and good things can happen there."
The Ducks have signed Oakbank native Matt Bailey to a two-year entry level contract. The 22-year-old Bailey played four seasons at the University of Alaska-Anchorage scoring 47 goals and 94 points in 138 career games. Bailey was an All-WCHA First Team all-star this season and named to the WCHA All-Academic Team. The 6-1, 201-pound winger recorded career highs in goals, assists and points in 2013-14 with 20 goals and 18 assists, leading the Seawolves in goals, points and game-winning goals with six.
Veteran Devin Setoguchi was a healthy scratch for the third game in a row. Defenceman Keaton Ellerby and goalie Al Montoya missed due to lower body injuries. Zach Redmond went in on the blue-line and Michael Hutchinson backed up goalie Ondrej Pavelec.
