The Ducks signed Antoine Vermette to a two-year deal worth $3.5 million ($1.75M AAV).
Vermette, 34, was bought out by the Coyotes a few weeks ago but has caught on with the Ducks for the next two seasons. Vermette is a solid two-way centre, who had 38 points (17G / 21A) in 76 games with Arizona. He will likely skate on the Ducks’ third line throughout the 2016-17 season.
Vermette (lower-body) will be a game-time decision.
Vermette has missed the last three games with a lower-body injury, but he took part i the gameday skate and is officially listed as a game-time decision for tonight’s contest in Los Angeles. Monitor his status in pre-game warmups.
Vermette (lower-body) is "very questionable" for Tuesday's game.
Vermette missed Saturday’s game in Ottawa and missed this morning’s game day skate as well. He is listed as a game-time decision, but head coach Dave Tippet called him “very questionable”—so do not expect him to play.
Vermette (lower-body) will be a game-time decision on Saturday.
Vermette was injured in the Coyotes loss to the Rangers on Thursday. He missed Friday’s practice but took part in today’s morning skate. He will be a game-time decision, so monitor his status during pre-game warmups.
Vermette left Thursday’s game with a lower-body injury and did not return.
Vermette left halfway through Thursday’s game and is listed as day-to-day. Head coach Dave Tippett doesn’t think the injury is “too serious” so there’s a chance that he could be in the lineup on Saturday vs. Boston.
The Blackhawks have acquired Antoine Vermette from Arizona for Klas Dahlbeck and a 2015 first-round pick.
Vermette, 32, is a pending unrestricted free agent, so this is a steep price to pay for a rental. The Patrick Kane injury really forced the Blackhawks hand though. Vermette has scored 13 goals with 22 assists (35 points) in 63 games with Arizona. He is a very effective two-way forward and is excellent in the face-off circle—Vermette currently sits eighth in the NHL in face-off percentage at 56.0%.
