Q3) Who is your under-rated Duck of the year?

This is the easiest question to answer so far. Derek Grant has literally come out of nowhere to become an important part of the team. Before joining the Anaheim Ducks this summer, he played for four teams over parts of the previous four seasons totaling 86 NHL games including only six games with Nashville last year.

He has scored 22 points in 58 games as an Anaheim Duck, tripling his previous career scoring output. Grant has filled a variety of roles this season from filling in for Getzlaf on the top line to anchoring the fourth line with new arrivals Chris Kelly and Jason Chimera.
