Beleskey served as a healthy scratch in Wednesday's game, but he will be back in the lineup tonight vs. the Devils. He is second on the team in goals (behind Corey Perry) with 17. He will skate on a line with Rickard Rakell and Devante Smith-Pelly.
Beleskey is expected to be a healthy scratch tonight vs. Toronto.
This comes as a bit of a surprise considering Beleskey is leading the team in goals with 17, but his playing time has been diminishing as of late, so head coach Bruce Boudreau must want him to correct something. Tim Jackman will play with Beleskey out.
Beleskey has been bumped up to the Ducks top-line.
After just one game the Ducks have already moved Dany Heatley off of the top-line and replaced him with Beleskey. The big winger has five goals in the first 10 games of the season. He is averaging 2.7 shots per game and firing at 18.5% right now.
Beleskey (lower-body) will not play for the remainder of the second round.
Beleskey has not played since game 3 because of a lower-body issue. He has two goals and two assists in five games this postseason, but he will not be back until the next round, given the Ducks get by the Kings this round.
Beleskey was injured in game 3 and did not return. His lower-body ailment kept him off of the ice this morning and will hold him out of game 4 tonight in Los Angeles. Expect Daniel Winnik to slide back into the Ducks' lineup.
Beleskey (undisclosed) is not on the ice for the Ducks' morning skate.
Head coach Bruce Boudreau said that his availability for game 2 likely depends on whether or not he skates. With Beleskey not skating that suggests that he won't play Friday. Consider him questionable, and expect Devante Smith-Pelly to take his spot in the lineup.
Beleskey (thumb) will be a game-time decision tonight.
Beleskey has not played since October 5 because of a broken thumb. He was a full participant in practice on Sunday and this morning and it appears as if he will play with Nick Bonino and Teemu Selanne.
