Jakob Silfverberg is a player that does the little things that the Ducks need to win hockey games. He is a a responsible, reliable, and defensively sound player that can be found along side Cogliano and this season Henrique/Kesler which is the Ducks special teams line.
A player that makes moves and finds spots where he is open to score and help the Ducks take the lead in the game.
“In a game against the Vancouver Canucks on November 9, Silfverberg reeled off two goals in a 35-second span, marking the second fastest by a single player in franchise history. Only J.F. Jomphe did it within a shorter timeframe, scoring twice in 13 seconds in the second period of a 5-4 victory on Dec. 13, 1996 vs. Washington.”
Outlook of the season according to the Anaheim Ducks:
With one year left on his four-year contract, Silfverberg could potentially become an unrestricted free agent next July 1 if a new deal isn’t reached by then. Ducks Executive Vice President and General Manager Bob Murray has already signed Adam Henrique, Brandon Montour, John Gibson, and Ondrej Kase to contract extensions within the past month, but still has restricted free agent Nick Ritchie to lock up.
Could Silfverberg make a switch from right wing to left wing? It’s a possibility, considering the plethora of right wings the Ducks have, like Kase, Corey Perry, Patrick Eaves and rookie Troy Terry.
A few milestones are on the horizon for the 27-year-old Swede. He needs just seven goals to reach 100 in his NHL career and 17 more to hit 100 as a Duck. He also needs 10 more points to hit the 200-point mark with Anaheim and 29 more games to reach 400 with the club. If Silfverberg plays 81 games this season, he will reach 500 career NHL games.
Looking forward to see what he is going to produce and bring on the ice next season.
