Vermette came through with two goals in a 3-2 win over St. Louis on Wednesday.

EDGE Analysis

The two goals against the Blues marked the first time Vermette had scored since Nov. 3 against Nashville. It'd be nice to believe fantasy owners could trust him, but with just nine points in 25 games and two coming in this one, the reality is that owners will need to see a lot more consistent play from him before he belongs on a roster.

Vermette has just a single goal and assist through his past 12 games.

EDGE Analysis

Despite logging 16:20 of ice time with 1:40 on the power play during the 12-game stretch, Vermette has struggled to generate offense. His role is defensively tilted with 40.2 percent of his five-on-five shifts beginning in his own zone. Additionally, Vermette has failed to register a power-play point all season. At this stage of the game, it's difficult to rely on the veteran in the majority of fantasy settings.

Vermette found twine Friday, but the Ducks lost to the Predators at home, 5-3.

EDGE Analysis

Vermette's tallied a modest six points (three goals, three assists) in 13 games this season, though his minus-5 rating is a bit of an eyesore for fantasy owners counting that stat. You're not likely to brag to your buds about owning the 35-year-old pivot, but he can get it done offensively every now and then.

Vermette produced two points at even strength -- dropping in a goal and an assist in Friday's 6-2 win over the Canadiens.

EDGE Analysis

The top-six, veteran pivot has one goal, a pair of helpers and four PIM over his last two contests. While Vetermette is averaging 2:25 of power-play ice time, he's still looking for his first point in that special teams situation. All things considered, he's a steady but unspectacular fantasy option.

Vermette lit the lamp Saturday, as the Ducks suffered a 3-2 home loss to the Flyers.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran pivot patiently waited for Ondrej Kase to dig the puck out from the side boards and then Vermette fired one home from the left circle. He scored only nine times in 72 games last season, but did add 19 helpers over that same span.

Vermette collected a pair of assists in a 4-1 win over Vancouver on Tuesday.

EDGE Analysis

The points were his first in the eight contests since returning from a 10-game suspension for slashing an official back on Feb. 14. Vermette now has 24 points in 66 games in his first season in Anaheim, which means he's likely to finish with his lowest total in a full campaign since 2011-12 with Columbus.

Vermette has served his 10-game suspension and will be eligible to rejoin the lineup Sunday against the Capitals, Ducks color analyst Dan Wood reports.

EDGE Analysis

Vermette was on the ice for Sunday's morning skate alongside Nick Ritchie (neck) and Corey Perry, potentially positioning him for that line during the evening's contest. The veteran forward hasn't provided a high rate of scoring this season for Anaheim, but should provide a bit of a boost to the lineup Sunday.

Vermette's 10-game suspension for slashing an official was upheld by NHL commissioner Gary Bettman, Eric Stephens of the Orange County Register reports.

EDGE Analysis

Vermette and the NHLPA had been lobbying for a reduced suspension for the centerman, but Bettman reportedly ruled that the contact made with linesman Shandor Alphonso fit under a Category 2 ruling that justifies the assessment of a 10-game ban for "physical abuse of official foul without intent to injure." Vermette will miss his fifth game Saturday due to the suspension and now won't be eligible to return until March 12.

Vermette's suspension for contact with an official was lowered to just five games Friday, Doug Maclean of Sportsnet reports.

EDGE Analysis

Vermette should certainly consider this a win after a fairly blatant slash to the leg of an official. The shortened ban will result in the 34-year-old missing the rest of the Ducks' February contests, but he can now return to action Mar. 3 against Toronto. In the interim, Ondrej Kase will slide up to the top line alongside Ryan Getzlaf.

Vermette was given a 10-game suspension Wednesday for contact with an official, Bob McKenzie of TSN reports.

EDGE Analysis

Vermette slashed the back of an official's leg during Tuesday's matchup with the Wild, which resulted in an ejection. The nature of the act resulted in an automatic 10-game ban, however, the 34-year-old can appeal the decision which could alter the length of the suspension. With pretty conclusive evidence that it was an intentional act, it would seem unlikely the center could get off with a lesser punishment, but it may be worth appealing anyway. Vermette is eligible to return Mar. 12 against the Capitals.
