The Anaheim Ducks will kick off their season at home against the Winnipeg Jets. The Ducks will be looking to take a step this year, we’ll see if they are able to start their season in the wins column.
The Ducks have a young team, and if nothing else, they should be fun to watch this season. Max Comtois, Sam Steel and Trevor Zegras are just some of the young forwards to keep an eye on this year for a potential breakout. The Ducks also have a very steady goaltender anchoring their team. John Gibson only had a .903 save percentage last season, the lowest he has seen in his career, but considering the team in front of Gibson, he still performed well.
The Ducks will most likely miss the play-offs this year, despite being in the wide open pacific division, but if their young guns prove themselves right away, they might find themselves pushing for a spot. Their season begins with a challenge, the Jets were a second round team last season. We’ll find out if they are up to that challenge.
The Winnipeg Jets are a fascinating team. They ended last regular season in a tailspin, and went from contending for first place in the division, to sliding into the play-offs in third. Most people wrote them off for the play-offs, but then they Swept Connor McDavid and the Edmonton Oilers in the first round, only to get swept by the Montreal Canadiens. Part of their problem against Montreal was missing their star centre, Mark Scheifele, who will be missing this game to serve the final game of his suspension.
The Jets are somewhat of an enigma, but they had a good off season, at least on paper. Nate Schmidt and Brendan Dillon both contribute to an improved blue line that desperately needed the help. The Jets will also be looking for Pierre-Luc Dubois to show up, especially in the absence of Scheifele.

Free Anaheim Ducks vs. Winnipeg Jets NHL Prediction
This game should go to Winnipeg, but I won’t be taking the Puckline odds when Mark Scheifele is out of the lineup, so instead I’ll suggest taking the under. Both teams have strong goaltenders, so I’m not expecting a high scoring game to open the season.
