Fleischmann will replace Emerson Etem in the lineup for Friday's Game 4 in Calgary, NHL.com's Aaron Vickers reports.

Fleischmann made two appearances in a first-round sweep of the Jets, but he hasn't played at all against the Flames. As the fourth-line left wing, he's unlikely to log more than 10-to-15 minutes of ice time.

Fleischmann will play in Monday's Game 3 against the Jets, Eric Stephens of the Orange County Register reports.

Fleischmann was made a healthy scratch for the Ducks' first two postseason games, but with both Chris Wagner (upper body) and Nate Thompson (upper body) out Monday, he'll draw into the lineup. Expect Fleischmann to occupy a fourth-line role.

Fleischmann will be a healthy scratch Saturday against Winnipeg, The Orange County Register reports.

Fleischmann was also a healthy scratch for Thursday's series opener. The Ducks will likely go with Andrew Cogliano, Rickard Rakell, and Jakob Silfverberg on the third line.

Fleischmann will be a healthy scratch for Game 1 of the Ducks' first-round playoff series against the Jets, NHL.com's Curtis Zupke reports.

Fleischmann has occasionally been a spectator in both his stops in Florida and Anaheim this season, so it's not overly surprising that he'll be bumped from the lineup in the Ducks' posteason opener. Should the Ducks decide at some point that they'd prefer a veteran presence in their bottom-six ranks, Fleischmann will get the opportunity to draw back in the lineup. The 30-year-old tallied eight goals and 19 assists over over 66 games this season.

Fleischmann assisted on teammate Francois Beauchemin's third period goal Sunday in New Jersey.

Since being moved at the trade deadline, Fleischmann's production as a Duck has not been going quite as well as most had hoped. He has a mediocre four points in 11 games, and was a healthy scratch in his team's previous two games. In fact, Fleischmann was a late inclusion to Sunday night's roster after winger Matt Beleskey suffered a lower-body injury in warmups.

Fleischmann will be a healthy scratch for Thursday's game against the Bruins, Helene Elliott of the Los Angeles Times reports.

Fleischmann has produced one goal and two assists over his 10 games with the Ducks, while occasionally finding himself out of the lineup due to the team's depth on the wings. He'll be scratched Thursday in favor of Chris Wagner, who will get the chance to play in front of family in friends in his native Massachusetts.

Fleischmann (coach's decision) will make his Ducks debut Tuesday against the Coyotes, Eric Stephens of the Orange County Register reports.

After he was acquired from the Panthers on Saturday, Fleischmann served as a healthy scratch upon joining the Ducks for Sunday's game with the Stars. It seems to have just been a byproduct of him not arriving in time to have a chance to skate with the rest of the team, so look for Fleischmann to hold down a regular role with the Ducks in the subsequent games to follow. He was slotted on the second line next to Ryan Kesler and Jakob Silfverberg at Tuesday's morning skate.

Fleischmann will not play in Sunday's game against the Stars, Helene Elliott of the LA Times reports.

As expected, Fleischmann will wait until Tuesday's game in Arizona to make his Ducks debut. He'll watch Sunday's game with the team's video coach to help get up to speed.

Fleischmann's flight to Dallas was cancelled Saturday, leaving him doubtful for Sunday's game against the Stars, Helene Elliott of the Los Angeles Times reports.

Fleischmann would likely be debuting for the Ducks on Sunday if it weren't for the flight issues. Now it appears that debut will be bumped back to Tuesday in Phoenix. He is expected to join the club in the afternoon, however, so he should be able to introduce himself to his new teammates.

Fleischmann was acquired by the Ducks on Saturday in exchange for forward Dany Heatley and a 2015 third-round draft pick, Eric Stephens of the Orange County Register reports.

The Ducks were still in need of some extra depth on the wing with Matt Beleskey (shoulder) still a week to 10 days away from a return to action, and Fleischmann should help feel that need, while also giving the roster more options down the stretch. Fleischmann had been juggled up and down the Panthers' lineup all season, generating seven goals, 14 assists, and a plus-12 rating over 52 games. Unless he latches on to a top-line role next to Ryan Getzlaf and Corey Perry, Fleischmann's fantasy value isn't likely to notice a substantial rise or fall with the move to Anaheim.
