Getzlaf dished out an assist and six hits in Saturday's 3-1 loss to the Golden Knights.

EDGE Analysis

Getzlaf doesn't look like he's missed a beat returning from a five-game absence due to a groin injury. He logged 17:04 of ice time with power-play minutes as well, and his physicality has jumped with 12 hits through three games. Getzlaf is looking to repeat the point-per-game pace he recorded last year.

Getzlaf (groin) will play Saturday against the Golden Knights, Josh Cooper of The Athletic reports.

EDGE Analysis

Getzlaf will return from a five-game absence and center the top line flanked by Rickard Rakell and Isac Lundestrom. He's coming off a solid season with 61 points in 56 games and he already has two assists in two contests this year, but Vegas will be a tough matchup with Marc-Andre Fleury in the blue paint.

Getzlaf (groin) is expected to return to the lineup against the Golden Knights on Saturday, Elliott Teaford of the Orange County Register reports.

EDGE Analysis

The Ducks captain reportedly practiced Friday, forming a line with rookie Isac Lundestrom and Rickard Rakell. While this bodes well for his chances of suiting up against Vegas, it'll be worth checking back during pregame warmups to see if Getzlaf is a safe activation after missing the last five games.

Getzlaf (groin) will not play in Wednesday's game against the Islanders, Eric Stephens of The Athletic reports.

EDGE Analysis

Getzlaf took part in practice Wednesday, providing some early optimism that he would rejoin the lineup for the contest. While that won't be the case, the star pivot appears to be on the verge of doing so. His next opportunity arises Saturday when the club travels to Vegas to take on the Golden Knights.

Getzlaf (groin) will be a game-time decision for Wednesday's clash against the visiting Islanders, Eric Stephens of The Athletic reports.

EDGE Analysis

Getzlaf remains on injured reserve -- per the NHL's official media site -- which doesn't leave much time for the Ducks to process a transaction ahead of puck drop, even though this is the latest game among four on a relatively light slate. Further to that point, with the captain's status unlikely to be determined ahead of pregame warmups, it's anyone's guess if he will be a safe play in daily fantasy since lineups will lock early in all but the single-game contests. As a result, it's probably best to take a wait-and-see approach with Getzlaf.

Per the official NHL media site, Getzlaf (groin) was place on injured reserve, retroactive to Oct. 6.

EDGE Analysis

Getzlaf has been doing well in his recovery from a groin injury, and the forward could be in the lineup as early as Wednesday. The move to IR was retroactive to Oct. 6 and as a result, owners should be gearing up to insert the Ducks' captain back into their lineups soon.

Getzlaf (groin) won't play Saturday against Dallas or Sunday against the Blues, but could return Wednesday against the Islanders, Mike Coppinger of the Los Angeles Times reports.

EDGE Analysis

Getzlaf's groin injury isn't believed to be overly serious, but the Ducks are taking a cautious approach with his recovery to ensure his injury doesn't become a long-term issue. The veteran pivot has been limited in practice this week, so another update on his status should surface once he's cleared to be a full participant.

Getzlaf (lower body) is not on the ice for warmups ahead of Wednesday's game against the Coyotes, suggesting he won't play, Dave Vest of the Coyotes' official site reports.

EDGE Analysis

Getzlaf will miss his second straight contests as he continues to recover from a lower-body issue. He will likely cede his top-line duties to Adam Henrique again, though it's worth noting that Ryan Kesler (hip) took the ice for warmups, suggesting he could make his return Wednesday.

Getzlaf (lower body) is out for Monday's game against the Red Wings, Elliott Teaford of the Orange County Register reports.

EDGE Analysis

The Ducks look quite different right now, as they are without Ryan Kesler (hip), Corey Perry (knee), and now Getzlaf. The 33-year-old center still anchors Anaheim's top line, and he had 50 assists in 56 games last year. Getzlaf's next chance to return will be Wednesday against the Coyotes.

Getzlaf (lower body) did not take the ice for Monday's game-day skate, Eric Stephens of The Athletic reports.

EDGE Analysis

While there has been no official announcement from the team regarding Getzlaf's status, it certainly doesn't bode well that he was unable to join his teammate on the ice. At this point, the center should probably be considered a game-time call at best. If he is unable to play against Detroit, Sam Steel figures to get bumped up to the second line with Isac Lundestrom slotting into the lineup.
