A Revived Ryan Getzlaf

from Mark Whicker of the LA Daily News,

This episode of “This Is Your Life” continues for Ryan Getzlaf.

The Ducks honored Getzlaf for his 1,000th point Sunday and have also honored him for his 1,000th game.

Trevor Zegras, 20, says he knows Getzlaf “hates” all the ribbon-cutting and commemoration, but “there’s going to be a lot more coming.”

Did anybody foresee this, just a few months ago, when the Ducks were becoming the Washington Generals in their own building, and when Getzlaf’s contract was ticking to a stop?

Instead, it says here that Getzlaf, 36, had 12 assists and 17 points in that purgatory season. He came to Honda Center Sunday with 18 and 19 this season, in 27 fewer games.

It’s often said that Getzlaf has borrowed some sonic youth from linemate Troy Terry and from Zegras and Jamie Drysdale.


Below, watch the 1000 point ceremony for Getzlaf.
