Description: Ducks center Ryan Kesler scored his sixth goal of the season on Saturday.
Insight: Kesler gave the Ducks a 2-1 lead over the Kings at the end of the second period. Anaheim, however, allowed a power-play goal halfway through the third period, and the Kings won in overtime. The Kings and Ducks split the home-and-home series this week.
 
10/9/2014 10:12:00 PM
Description: Ducks center Ryan Kesler had two assists in his Anaheim debut in Pittsburgh on Thursday.
Insight: Kesler played over four minutes on the power play, which is certainly encouraging for his fantasy owners. Both of his assists came with the man advantage. Kesler's fantasy value greatly rises if he can continue to play with Ryan Getzlaf and Corey Perry on the power play.

Insight: The Ducks are sending Nick Bonino to Vancouver along with Luca Sbisa and the 24th overall pick in tonight's NHL Draft. In ten seasons with the Canucks, Kesler tallied 182 goals while firing 1,557 shots on net.
 
3/23/2014 1:17:00 PM
Description: Vancouver center Ryan Kesler (knee) may return Sunday, according to the Vancouver Sun.
Insight: Kesler (22 G, 18 A, 218 SOG) will be a game-time decision against the Sabres. He last played on March 12 and missed the last four games.
 
3/14/2014 5:20:00 PM
Description: Vancouver center Ryan Kesler (knee) will miss "at least a couple of weeks," coach John Tortorella said. SOURCE: Canucks on Twitter
Insight: Kesler (22 G, 18 A, 218 SOG) was given a timetable of at least one week on Thursday but he'll miss more than that.
 
3/13/2014 1:57:00 PM
Description: Vancouver center Ryan Kesler will miss at least one week due to a sprained right knee.
Insight: Kesler (22 G, 18 A, 218 SOG) headed back to Vancouver and is expected to miss the final three games of the road trip.
 
3/5/2014 4:52:00 PM
Description: The NHL trade deadline passed Wednesday and Ryan Kesler is still wearing a Vancouver Canucks uniform.
Insight: Multiple teams were reportedly interested in Kesler (21 G, 18 A, 212 SOG), but the Canucks didn't pull the trigger. He'll remain on a Vancouver team that just traded Roberto Luongo and will be without Daniel Sedin (lower body) indefinitely. A trade certainly could have helped his fantasy value for the rest of the season.
 
3/4/2014 9:12:00 PM
Description: There's a very good chance that Vancouver will trade center Ryan Kesler before Wednesday's deadline. He won't be going to the Rangers, however, as Kesler has refused to waive his no-trade clause to play for the Blue Shirts. SOURCE: Larry Brooks, New York Post
Insight: Could you imagine Kesler on a line with Ryan Callahan and Carl Hagelin? Well don't bother because it's not happening. Kesler (21 G, 18 A in 62 games) is sure to be a fantasy asset wherever he ends up, even if that means staying with the Canucks.
 
2/27/2014 5:38:00 PM
Description: Vancouver center Ryan Kesler (hand) hopes to play Friday, according to Farhan Lalji of tsn.ca. He practiced Thursday.
Insight: Kesler suffered a hand injury while blocking a shot during the Olympics and missed Wednesday's game. The center denied rumors he has asked for a trade and expects to be with the Canucks after the deadline.
 
2/26/2014 4:57:00 PM
Description: Vancouver center Ryan Kesler (hand) will miss Thursday's game against the Blues.
Insight: Kesler suffered a hand injury while blocking a shot during the Olympics. Canucks coach John Tortorella wouldn't divulge the results of Kesler's MRI, saying only that the center is day-to-day when asked about the tests.
 
2/8/2014 9:29:00 PM
Description: Vancouver center Ryan Kesler scored his 20th goal of the season Saturday against the Maple Leafs.
Insight: Kesler has a disappointing 38 games in 60 games this season, though with 205 SOG and 63 PIM he still has fantasy value.
 
Hot12/4/2013 9:30:00 AM
Description: Vancouver center Ryan Kesler has scored more than one goal in each of his last two games.
Insight: He had two in Tuesday night's win over Nashville. After getting off to a hot start, Kesler slumped a bit in November, producing just two goals in 13 contests. He's owned the month of December though and fantasy owners would be wise to start him on a nightly basis.
 
Hot10/25/2013 10:41:00 PM
Description: Canucks center Ryan Kesler scored two goals Friday against the Blues, including the game-winner with 14 seconds left in overtime.
Insight: Kesler took eight SOG and now has 54 through 13 games. He's scored four goals in his last three games and has seven goals and 10 points on the year.
 
10/22/2013 10:37:00 PM
Description: Canucks center Ryan Kesler had a big night Tuesday against New York, scoring a goal and picking up one assist.

Description: Canucks center Ryan Kesler had a pair of goals on six shots Tuesday against the Flyers.
Insight: Kesler has three goals and no assists in seven games, though he also has 25 SOG and 11 PIM.
 
10/6/2013 11:11:00 AM
Description: Canucks center Ryan Kesler took nine SOG and scored on one of them Saturday against the Oilers.
Insight: Kesler has one point in two games but he has provided fantasy owners with 12 SOG and nine PIM. Injuries limited him to 17 games last season, but when healthy is a strong fantasy center.
 
4/8/2013 7:30:00 PM
Description: Canucks center Ryan Kesler is back in the lineup for Monday's game versus Phoenix. He's been out with a broken foot since late February.
Insight: Kesler produced five points in seven games before his injury so he's certainly capable of providing a lift for Vancouver down the stretch. He's recorded two goals and three assists in five games against the Coyotes the past two seasons.
 
4/2/2013 4:52:00 PM
Description: According to the Vancouver Province, Canucks center Ryan Kesler's hairline fracture is fully healed and he is expected to begin skating this week.
Insight: Kesler suffered the broken foot on Feb. 21 against Dallas after missing the first month of the season with wrist and shoulder injuries so he has played just seven games this season. Vancouver acquired center Derek Roy from Dallas on Tuesday, but Kesler should return to the second line when he's ready.
