Ducks' Brett Leason: Supplies sixth goal of 2022-23
Leason tallied a goal in a 5-4 overtime loss to Colorado on Sunday.
Leason has six goals and nine points in 54 contests this season. Anaheim has used him sparingly in 2022-23, providing him with an average of just 10:54 of ice time, so his limited offensive contributions aren't surprising. Leason also isn't a lineup staple, having been a healthy scratch four times over Anaheim's last seven games.... See More ... See Less
Ducks' Brett Leason: Scores against hometown team
Leason scored a goal, added two hits and logged two PIM in Friday's 3-1 win over the Flames.
Leason was a healthy scratch for six of the last nine games, but he got into the lineup in his hometown. He was able to make an impact with a second-period tally that stood as the game-winner. The 23-year-old winger still isn't getting much of a look in a fourth-line role -- he has eight points, 43 shots on net, 32 hits and a minus-19 rating while averaging 10:53 of ice time through 49 outings....

Ducks' Brett Leason: Grabs two points
Leason scored a goal on two shots, added an assist and went plus-2 in Tuesday's 3-2 overtime win over the Blackhawks.
Leason had been a healthy scratch for the last five games, and he had just one assist in his previous 19 appearances, so this was an unexpected showing. He took advantage of Petr Mrazek's shaky control for his second-period tally, and he set up Jayson Megna on a similar play later in the frame. Leason now has seven points, 36 shots on net, 29 hits and a minus-14 rating through 41 appearances this season. He's likely to remain in a fourth-line role when he plays.... See More ... See Less
Ducks' Brett Leason: Ends drought with assist
Leason provided an assist and three shots on goal in Wednesday's 6-2 loss to the Oilers.
Leason ended his 14-game point drought by setting up a Simon Benoit goal in the third period. The 23-year-old Leason has played mainly in a fourth-line role in a weak offense, so it's not surprising that he's struggled to get on the scoresheet regularly. He is up to five points, 32 shots on net, 26 hits, six PIM and a minus-14 rating through 36 outings. He had six points in 36 games with the Capitals last year, so his production hasn't changed much with his new team.... See More ... See Less
Ducks' Brett Leason: Offense goes cold
Leason has no points and a minus-11 rating over his last 14 games.
Leason scored in back-to-back games Dec. 4 and 6, but the 23-year-old hasn't produced a point or a plus rating since. He's at four points, a minus-15 rating, 29 shots on net, 25 hits and 13 blocked shots through 35 contests this season while playing mainly in a fourth-line role.... See More ... See Less
Ducks' Brett Leason: Goals in back-to-back outings
Leason scored a goal on three shots in Tuesday's 4-3 overtime win over the Hurricanes.
Leason tallied the Ducks' third goal just over halfway through the second period. He's scored three times this season, with two of those goals coming in the last two games. The 23-year-old winger has four points, 18 shots, 15 hits and a minus-4 rating through 21 outings while serving in a bottom-six role. Even with the recent improvement on the scoresheet, he's not going to make much of a splash in fantasy.... See More ... See Less
Ducks' Brett Leason: Converts breakaway tally
Leason scored a second-period goal during Sunday's 5-2 defeat to the host Jets.
Leason forced a turnover following a face-off in the defensive zone and outraced the Jets' defense, scoring his first goal in 14 outings Sunday. Skating on the fourth line with Max Jones and Mason McTavish, Leason has marked the scoresheet in just two of his 20 appearances. He added three shots during 12:48 of ice time Sunday.... See More ...

Ducks' Brett Leason: Gets first two points of season
Leason scored a goal on three shots, added an assist and went plus-2 in Saturday's 5-4 shootout win over the Sharks.
Leason contributed both points in the first period. The goal and assist were both firsts for the 23-year-old as a Duck. He's added four shots on net, four hits, two blocked shots and an even plus-minus rating while logging bottom-six minutes through six contests since he was claimed on waivers from the Capitals last month. His limited role makes him a non-factor in most fantasy formats.... See More ... See Less
Ducks' Brett Leason: Plucked by Ducks
Anaheim claimed Leason off waivers from Washington on Monday, Elliotte Friedman of Sportsnet reports.
Leason posted three goals and three assists in 36 games for Washington last season. He also earned six goals and 13 points over 31 AHL contests in 2021-22. Leason could start the season on Anaheim's fourth line.... See More ... See Less

Capitals' Brett Leason: Secures two-year pact
Leason agreed to terms on a two-year, $1.55 million contract with Washington on Monday.
Perhaps most significant for Leason is the fact that his new deal is a one-way contract, which means the club at least anticipates him making the 23-man roster for Opening Night of the 2022-23 campaign. In 36 games during his debut season, the 23-year-old winger secured three goals on 45 shots, three assists and 16 hits while averaging just 8:57 of ice time.... See More ... See Less

Capitals' Brett Leason: Brought up from minors
Leason was called up from AHL Hershey on Thursday.
Leason's promotion doesn't bode well for the availability of Tom Wilson (lower body) for Thursday's matchup with Florida. Even with Leason being added to the squad, he's far from a lock to break into the lineup and could still find himself watching from the press box in favor of Connor McMichael or Axel Jonsson-Fjallby....

Capitals' Brett Leason: Reassigned to AHL Hershey
Leason was shipped down to the minors Monday, Tom Gulitti of NHL.com reports.
With the Caps adding Marcus Johansson and Johan Larsson (lower body) at the deadline, Leason finds himself the odd man out for a spot in the lineup. Still, Leason should be atop the list of potential call-ups throughout the remainder of the year should an injury or two pop up among the club's forwards.... See More ... See Less

Capitals' Brett Leason: Dropped to AHL affiliate
Leason was reassigned to AHL Hershey on Thursday.
Leason's demotion suggests T.J. Oshie (upper body) may be ready to return Thursday versus the Rangers. If that ends up being the case, Leason, who's picked up six points through 35 top-level appearances this year, could be in for an extended stay with Hershey.... See More ... See Less
