Will Sami Vatanen Make His NHL Debut Tonight?

Tonight it looks like the Anaheim Ducks blue-line is going to get a big boost with  defenseman Sami Vatanen coming back into the line-up. This game marks his season NHL debut in this game when the Anaheim Ducks take on the Tampa Bay Lightning. His return comes at the perfect timing, just like Hampus Lindholm and his return to the game once Cam Fowler was injured. So, with Fowler and Bieska out for injuries, the debuts of Lindholm and Vatanen come at the perfect timing.

Randy Carlyle (on Sami Vatanen): All we want Sami to do is come in and be complement to our backend. He’s moving as well as he’s ever moved. Hopefully he gives us the green light either tonight or tomorrow for him to come back into the lineup. When you have the opportunity to bring back veteran players who have played critical roles for you previously, it’s always a welcome addition. What coach wouldn’t want that? Your expectations have to be tampered somewhat when a guy hasn’t had a training camp and he’s been out for an extended period of time. He’s put in a lot of work off the ice.

LET’S GO DUCKS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

It’s a go to place to see stats on players, you can subscribe in order to listen to the game just like you would in the car, track the team points to see what place they stand in for the playoffs, and my favorites you can shop through the app and read articles of and watch interviews of the games and everything to do with the Anaheim Ducks.*
