  • Ducks' Leo Carlsson: Strikes on power play

    Carlsson scored a power-play goal on five shots and went minus-3 in Tuesday's 3-2 loss to the Avalanche.

    Carlsson drew the roughing penalty on Kurtis MacDermid that led to his own 5-on-3 goal. Carlsson has two goals and three assists over his last five games, with three of those points coming on the power play. He's up to eight goals, 13 points (six on the power play), 40 shots on net and a minus-4 rating through 17 appearances. The Ducks have struggled mightily of late, but Carlsson has been a bright spot when he's in the lineup on the first line.

  • Ducks' Leo Carlsson: Does it all in shootout win

    Carlsson scored a goal on four shots and dished a power-play assist in Saturday's 4-3 shootout win over the Avalanche.

    Carlsson was also effective in other ways, drawing two of the three penalties the Avalanche took. The 18-year-old also had the Ducks' lone shootout tally to secure the win. Carlsson continues to play as advertised with seven goals, five assists, 35 shots on net and a minus-1 rating through 16 appearances. With Mason McTavish (upper body) leaving Saturday's game, it's unclear if Carlsson will be in the lineup more often in the short term should his teammate miss time.

  • Ducks' Leo Carlsson: Creates helper in loss

    Carlsson notched an assist in Thursday's 5-4 loss to the Capitals.

    Carlsson was scratched for the previous two games as part of his development plan. The center responded with 21:26 of ice time Thursday, the fourth time he's exceeded 20 minutes in a game this season. He's up to six goals, four helpers, 31 shots on net, 11 hits and a minus-2 rating through 15 appearances. The Ducks haven't been abundantly clear as to when he'll play or sit, but he's worth getting into fantasy lineups when he suits up.

  • Ducks' Leo Carlsson: Out Sunday

    Carlsson (undisclosed) will not dress against the Oilers on Sunday.

    Carlsson has been given periodic rest so far this season but it's unclear if he's dealing with an injury this time around or not. The rookie center has six goals and nine points through 16 games but has been held to two assists over his last five appearances. Anaheim's next game will be in Vancouver on Tuesday.

  • Ducks' Leo Carlsson: Adds power-play assist

    Carlsson notched a power-play assist, three shots on goal and two hits in Wednesday's 4-3 loss to the Canadiens.

    Carlsson played in consecutive games for the first time in 10 days, as he's sat out twice over the last five contests as part of his workload management plan. The 18-year-old set up Mason McTavish on a second-period power-play marker. Carlsson continues to hold his own with nine points (four on the power play), 29 shots on net, eight hits and a minus-3 rating over 13 appearances. The Ducks don't have a back-to-back set for the rest of the month, but it's still possible he could be scratched again in that span given the unpredictability of when he gets a game off.

  • Ducks' Leo Carlsson: Healthy scratch Friday

    Carlsson will sit out Friday's game versus Florida as a healthy scratch, Derek Lee of The Sporting Tribune reports.

    The Ducks are managing Carlsson's games this season as they do not want the 18-year-old to wear down as the campaign progresses. Carlsson was selected second overall in this year's Entry Draft and has six goals and eight points in just 11 games this season. He should return to his spot on the top line Sunday versus St. Louis.

  • Ducks' Leo Carlsson: Deals power-play helper

    Carlsson recorded a power-play assist and three shots on goal in Sunday's 4-1 win over the Sharks.

    Carlsson has played in eight straight games, racking up all but one of his eight points this season in that span. The 18-year-old is supposedly on a workload limit in the first half of the campaign, though it hasn't popped up lately. In addition to his offense, Carlsson has 23 shots on net and a minus-1 rating through 10 appearances. The Ducks have four games over the next seven days, so it's possible he could sit out one or more of those contests.

  • Ducks' Leo Carlsson: Nets first career hat trick

    Carlsson recorded a hat trick in Friday's 6-3 loss to the Flyers.

    Carlsson scored twice on the power play and once at even strength to earn his first hat trick. He's the youngest Duck to ever pull off the feat. The 18-year-old center has hit the ground running with six goals and one assist over nine contests, and he's added 20 shots on net, five hits, four blocked shots and four PIM. It's unclear if he'll play Sunday versus the Sharks due to his workload management plan in the first half of the season, but Carlsson's entry-level deal will officially activate with his next appearance.

  • Ducks' Leo Carlsson: Scores equalizer

    Carlsson scored the game-tying goal in Wednesday's 4-3 overtime win over the Coyotes.

    Carlsson tallied at 4:01 of the third period to force overtime. The rookie center has played in four straight games, picking up three points in that span. He's at three goals, one helper, 14 shots on net and a plus-2 rating through six appearances. Carlsson is expected to frequently sit as a scratch as he adapts to the NHL over the next few months.

  • Ducks' Leo Carlsson: Late heroics against Bruins

    Carlsson produced a goal and an assist in Thursday's 4-3 overtime win over the Bruins.

    The rookie sparked a comeback from a 3-1 deficit by beating Linus Ullmark with just under two minutes left in the third period before setting up Mason McTavish for the OT winner. Carlsson is still only 18 years old and is being eased into the rigors of an NHL campaign after being the second overall pick in the 2023 Draft, but he's been impressive when he's been on the ice, collecting two goals and three points in three games with nine shots on goal, three hits and a plus-4 rating.

  • Ducks' Leo Carlsson: Will occasionally be scratched

    Carlsson will not suit up every game over the first half of the season, Eric Stephens of The Athletic reports.

    General manager Pat Verbeek has a plan for Carlsson's development, which includes occasional scratches early in the season. The intent is to ease him into the NHL in a year that likely won't see the Ducks be competitive. Carlsson is expected to ramp up into the second half of the year, and he'll probably be an everyday player over the last two or three months. His first planned scratch is Sunday versus the Bruins.

  • Ducks' Leo Carlsson: Scores in NHL debut

    Carlsson contributed a goal in a 3-2 loss to Dallas on Thursday.

    Carlsson, who was making his NHL debut, also finished with a plus-2 rating and two shots in 19:00 of ice time. He was getting a chance to play on the first line alongside Trevor Zegras and Troy Terry, which is a spot typically occupied by Adam Henrique, who was unavailable due to an illness. If Henrique is able to return for Saturday's contest versus Arizona, Carlsson may lose that first-line role, but the 18-year-old rookie should remain in the top six either way.

  • Ducks' Leo Carlsson: Debuting Thursday

    Carlsson (lower body) will be activated from season-opening injured reserve to make his NHL debut Thursday versus the Stars.

    Carlsson has missed the Ducks' first two games after sustaining an injury in practice before the start of the season. The 18-year-old was selected second overall in this year's draft. He'll likely slot into a middle-six role and receive power-play time from the start as the Ducks look to get him acclimated to the NHL.

  • Ducks' Leo Carlsson: Back at practice

    Carlsson (lower body) practiced Tuesday and hopes to make his NHL debut Thursday against Dallas, according to Derek Lee of The Sporting Tribune.

    Per Lee, Carlsson skated between Trevor Zegras and Troy Terry during Tuesday's session. The 18-year-old Carlsson was selected with the No. 2 overall pick in the 2023 NHL Entry Draft by the Ducks. He missed the first two games of the 2023-24 campaign after getting injured in a practice during training camp.

  • Ducks' Leo Carlsson: Surfaces on IR

    Carlsson (lower body) will begin the season on injured reserve, per PuckPedia.

    Carlsson was injured during practice last week and needed to be helped off the ice. There hasn't been much of an update since then but he'll miss at least three games to start the regular season. The 18-year-old should slide right into Anaheim's top-six once he's healthy.

  • Ducks' Leo Carlsson: Suffers lower-body injury

    Carlsson (lower body) had to be helped off the ice at practice Friday, according to Felix Sicard of Crash the Pond.

    The good news is that the injury isn't as serious as first thought, per Elliotte Friedman of Sportsnet, but an exact timeline is currently unclear. Carlsson lost an edge during a one-on-one drill and went heavily into the end boards during Friday's session. He is expected to start the 2023-24 campaign with the Ducks after being selected second overall in the 2023 NHL Draft. Carlsson has the potential to be an elite forward very quickly in his NHL career.
