Second Star: Rickard Rakell, C (3 SOG, 15:25 TOI)

Don’t let the statline of Rickard Rakell describe his performance. Rakell spearheaded the active Ducks’ third line of Silfverberg and Patrick Maroon. That trio got involved in the corners and was the most successful in generating offensive chances. Rakell got involved on the forecheck, drove hard to the net, and kept the puck cycling in the offensive zone during his shifts. Since his recent call-up to the NHL level, Rakell has been terrific in his opportunity, and he is making a statement that he truly belongs at the NHL level.
