The Steve Carroll Report
The Mighty Ducks practiced at Anaheim Ice on Thursday morning, preparing for a busy weekend of hockey.

On Friday night, the Mighty Ducks host Phoenix at 7:30pm at the Arrowhead Pond. The Canucks provide the opposition on Saturday night in British Columbia. And on Sunday, the Ducks travel to San Jose for their third road exhibition contest.

 Commenting on the 2-1 pre-season loss to San Jose at the Pond on Wednesday night, Head Coach Randy Carlyle says his team has some work to do.

 “You are always trying to evaluate or assess on a day-to-day basis,” said Carlyle, meeting with reporters following the morning skate. “Some people take a step forward, some people flatten out, and other guys are revving up into gear. We do those things that are part of a coaching staff’s work and our day to day assessment of people.”

 “We’ve got work to do,” mentioned Carlyle. “We have a very busy schedule coming with three games in three nights. We know we are going to play a lot of hockey over the next 72 hours. We just try and make sure that we never lose sight of that fact that we have a goal to reach here. We continue to push for a higher level of play from our players.”

 “It is important to win,” said Carlyle. “I thought we did enough things to win on Wednesday night. But we didn’t win.”

 How does Carlyle feel about the young players fitting in with the veteran players in camp?

“When there are young hockey players coming out of junior hockey, are they good enough to make a contribution?” said Carlyle. “These kids have come in and made an impact in the rookie tournament. They have made an impact in the regular scrimmages. Are they making an impact in the pre-season games? To some degree, yes. But not to the extent that they made in the previous two experiences.

Ducks first round pick Bobby Ryan is scheduled to visit a doctor on Friday to see what the next step is in regards to his shoulder injury.

Meanwhile, Ryan is taking in all he can at training camp until he gets back to full-time work.

“There are so many players here that have played for so many years,” said Ryan. “You learn things from them by the way they act and the way they represent themselves in the organization.  And their work ethic on and off the ice. They have all been great to me and helped me. I’ve gotten to talk to other players about injuries they have incurred in the past. They are all here for me. It’s good to see.”

What does Ryan hope to take back to juniors once this training camp comes to an end?

“I think the one thing you notice is the speed at this level,” says Ryan. “Even at the practices.  Not so much the skating ability, but the way they make decisions quicker. The passes are crisper. Everything is a step ahead of where you are. There’s a guy on you at all times. I think those are the main issues I’ll try to stress in helping my game this year.”


Forwards Corey Perry and Ryan Getzlaf each have two points to pace the Ducks scoring in two pre-season games. Perry has one goal and one assist while Getzlaf has added two assists. Perry also leads the team in shots with ten in the first two pre-season contests.
