Ducks return Rakell to junior team

The Orange County Register is reporting the Anaheim Ducks on Wednesday will return Rickard Rakell to his junior team, the Plymouth Whalers of the Ontario Hockey League.

Rakell has no points and three shots on goal in four games, but hasn't played since Jan. 29. He's been a healthy scratch in seven straight games.

The 19-year-old center, taken with the 30th pick of the 2011 NHL Draft, made the team out of training camp and centered the fourth line on opening night, playing 9:49.

Rakell had 30 points in 32 games with Plymouth at the start of the season.

By playing Rakell in fewer than six games this season, it delays the start of his three-year, entry-level contact to next season.

Smyth a surprising scratch for Oilers

The big surprise coming out of the Edmonton Oilers' morning skate is that forward Ryan Smyth will be a healthy scratch for Tuesday's game against the Dallas Stars.

Smyth, second all-time on the Oilers' list of games played (864) and fifth in goals (285), has two points in 12 games, and has 22 penalty minutes in his past four, including three minor penalties Sunday against the Columbus Blue Jackets. His ice time also has gone down; he's played fewer than 15 minutes in three of the past four, including 11:25 on Sunday.

The 36-year-old, who has spent 14 of his 18 NHL seasons with the Oilers, chose not to talk to reporters after the team's morning skate.

Oilers coach Ralph Krueger said sitting Smyth out was an "extremely difficult" decision, but one he feels is best for the team ahead of Tuesday's game.

"The decisions I need to make, that are my responsibility, are the ones I believe are best for the team on a given day," he said. "Whether people are going to like it or not, or whether I'm popular or not is not the driving force."

I was surprised. I knew I got it. It's tough. You never know how hard it is until it registers on the gun. I got pretty much all I could into and you just hope for the best.
