Based off line rushes this morning and comments made by head coach Randy Carlyle, Hampus Lindholm's season debut will have to wait until next time.

Carlyle said there wouldn't be any changes on defense in terms of the seven active defensemen currently on the roster. "That's not going to happen tonight," he said to reporters today, when asked if any d-men could make their season debuts. "What you see is what we get."

by Kyle Shohara @kyleshohara / AnaheimDucks.com

Tonight could be the night when the Bearded One returns to the lineup.

All signs indicate it coming to fruition, as earlier today Patrick Eaves took part in the morning skate on a line with Ryan Getzlaf and Corey Perry. Eaves missed most of training camp and all of the preseason with a lower-body injury, but has taken part in full practices over the past few days. If Eaves plays, he will skate at left wing, something he has no issue with despite it being his off-wing.

Reinforcements might be on the way.

We won't know until pregame warmups when he gives it a go, but tonight could mark the season debut for Ducks captain Ryan Getzlaf. There is no doubt he's the one that stirs the team's drink, so having him back would give the Ducks a huge boost down the middle.
