  • Hampus Lindholm a healthy scratch Saturday
    Defenseman Hampus Lindholm was a healthy scratch on Saturday.

    Advice: The Ducks have eight healthy defensemen so someone has to sit and it was Lindholm's turn on Saturday. James Wisniewski was banished to the press box on Thursday and returned to the lineup Saturday. "Sometimes I really believe it’s a good time to watch a game to get hungry to get back in," coach Bruce Boudreau said. "And every time we’ve done that, the guy that’s come back in ... I thought Wiz was very good today. It’s had the positive effect that we think it’s supposed to have." Don't read anything into this as Lindholm is a good blueliner who is only going to get better. He has seven goals, 33 points and a plus-22 rating and should be drafted in the middle rounds next season.
