Ducks coach Bruce Boudreau has been impressed with Ben Lovejoy since he was acquired from the Pittsburgh Penguins.
"He's been good," Boudreau said. "He can skate. He's a right-handed shot that gives you something that we hadn't had before. When you're passing it up the boards to somebody on the right side, you're able to move it as a right-hander than a lefty." Lovejoy has given the Ducks enough depth to rotate some defenseman in and out of the lineup. At the same time, Lovejoy has been playing recently with Anaheim and has four points in eight games.
