The Anaheim Ducks bounced back from a 9-2 blowout loss to the Toronto Maple Leafs on Saturday (Feb. 17) with a 4-3 victory over the Buffalo Sabres on Monday (Feb. 19). It has largely been another difficult season for the Ducks, but the team’s ability to rebound with better efforts after brutal defeats has been far more noticeable in 2023-24. Although the club is making strides toward being more competitive, the process feels like it is taking forever. Nonetheless, it is encouraging to see that progress is being made.

The Ducks’ victory against the Sabres was a bit of a showcase of that resiliency in and of itself, with both teams battling to stay in front of the other. The score was tied on three different occasions before Troy Terry put the Ducks ahead for good at the 18:56 mark of the second period. This week’s News and Rumors roundup will examine milestones reached by Terry and Mason McTavish in Monday’s triumph, as well as the latest trade speculation and another strong showing from a Ducks’ prospect playing in the junior ranks.

Terry & McTavish Continue to Etch Their Names Into Ducks’ History 

Terry notched one goal and two assists in Monday’s contest for his 11th career three-point performance. He is now tied with Jakob Silfverberg and Scott Niedermayer for ninth place on the Ducks’ all-time list in games with three points. Rickard Rakell is next with 14, but Terry still has a very long way to go to catch Teemu Selanne’s franchise-best total of 89. The 26-year-old Terry also earned the first four-point effort of his NHL career earlier this season, with three goals and one assist in a 4-3 overtime win versus the Arizona Coyotes on Nov. 1.

McTavish racked up three helpers in Monday’s contest to give him 82 career points (34 goals, 48 assists) across 136 NHL outings. The 21-year-old forward became the fifth-fastest player in franchise history to reach 80 career points behind Paul Kariya (80 games played), Bobby Ryan (105 games played), Trevor Zegras (108 games played) and Ryan Getzlaf (121 games played). Just in case you were wondering, McTavish is up to six three-point performances during his NHL career. 

Oilers in the Mix for Henrique
