Ryan Kesler With The Ducks

from Nicholas J. Cotsonika of Yahoo, Kesler is the key part of the Ducks’ plan. The Ducks don’t care where they finish in the regular season, as long as they make the playoffs and prepare themselves along the way.

It feels like every single day the Internet is declaring a new “winner” of the Ice Bucket Challenge so I’ll refrain from handing out any awards here. I will say, though, that Anaheim Ducks center Ryan Kesler probably has the second-best one I’ve seen from an NHL player, behind only Paul Bissonnette’s. Kesler completed the challenge by stripping down to a fluorescent speedo...

Nick Bonino as happy to arrive in Vancouver as Kesler is to leave

Ryan Kesler called last season painful and knew it was time for change. Nick Bonino is calling next season hopeful and knows versatility is his calling card. In a perfect world, Bonino is probably a third-line NHL centre.

Surgical procedures have robbed Kesler of the ability...
