Getzlaf, shit missiles hope to help at the end of the game of 12 games


SF. PAUL, Min. Ryan Getzlaf said he hoped the four jobs made by Anaheim Ducks this week will help to change the season.

The duke, on a loss line of 12 games (0-8-4), the longest in their history, visits Minnesota Wild at Xcel Energy Center on Thursday (8 pm ET, FS-N, PRIME, NHL.TV.). Anaheim did not win after a 4-2 victory at Pittsburgh Penguins on December 17th.

"I knew something was going to give you something at some point here, so we're excited to have some fresh boys in the range that have failed to grow," Getzlaf said, Captain Ducks, after the morning patch Thursday. "We hope that this can help to ignite our group and return it.


"When you bring in many different bodies that have not been here through this whole penetration, they do not know how much the fight has been. We hope they can come and create a life in our range and will allow us to get there we have to be.

After buying ahead Devin Shore in a trade with Dallas Stars for the future Andrew Cogliano Anaheim made three more jobs on Wednesday: he bought a defensive fellow Michael Del Zotto from Vancouver Canucks for defender Luke Schenn and a round of seventh round in NHL 2020; redirect Derek Grant from penguins to Joseph Blandisi; and before Justin Kloos from the wilderness forwards Pontus Aberg.

Anaheim also remembered Troy Terry and Max Jones and Defender Andrej Sustr at the San Diego US Hockey League on Wednesday.

Duke sent offensive Jake Dotchin and sent Kiefer Sherwood to San Diego as well as veteran before Patrick Eaves on conditioning condition; Eaves did not play from a fracture of a rib during a 5-1 loss at Wild on Nov. 9.

Terry and Jones will play against Wild; this will be Terry's seventh match this season, and Jones will make his debut in the NHL.

"This is [the game] you have been concentrating since you were a small child, "said Jones, who has 24 points (12 goals, 12 assists) in 32 AHL games this season." The mood is a little different, things do not go as they want it here [in Anaheim], but it must remain the same. I have to play the way we play in San Diego and I have to take it here and hopefully help a victory. "

Duck coach Randy Carlyle said he expects Grant, who has 36 points (14 goals, 22 passes) in 177 NHL matches, to be in the Minnesota range.

Del Zotto, who had four points (one goal, three assists) and was plus-3 in 23 matches with Canucks, probably will not join Anaheim until the end of his five-star journey ending in New York Islanders on Sunday. Kloos is expected to be a healthy scratch on Thursday.

Shore will play Thursday's second Ducks game on Thursday after he debuted with him in a 3-1 loss at Detroit Red Wings on Tuesday.

"With the transactions that have taken place, we will have a different look in our range," said Carlyle. "We look at some children who have been in the American Hockey League for years … and an older face we had last year in Derek Grant coming from Pittsburgh … and the speed and energy of Kloos."

Getzlaf, who has three points (one goal, two assists) in the last 11 matches, said he hopes a turning point will come quickly.

"It's hard," he said. "You will go through this and we have not gone through such a thing … There are a lot of cliches that you can use, but it's a matter of going and working and trying to think about how we we know the skills and we know what we can do as a group. We have to try to find those things and we have to win one. "
