CALGARY -- Anaheim Ducks coach Randy Carlyle has known center Ryan Kesler since he played for him with Manitoba of the American Hockey League in 2004-05. Interestingly, Michael Jordan Blackhawks Jersey Carlyle said the Kesler of those days isn't much different than the 33-year-old Kesler, a father of two daughters and one son. He's still as feisty, intense and hard working as ever, qualities that served him well during his months of recovery and rehabilitation from June 8 hip surgery in Colorado. "I don't think he's changed that much," Carlyle said. "He was a guy that took on all comers when he was on the ice. There is a little difference. The question mark then was whether he could be a true No. 2 offensive center or was he just going to be a checker. And he's been a true No. 2 center. Michal Rozsival Authentic Jersey And in some situations, he's taken on a No. 1 role in the absence of people and whatnot." Kesler didn't return to the Ducks lineup until Dec. 27 against the Vegas Golden Knights. He's played six games and has three points (one goal, two assists) and minus-4 rating. When the Ducks lost 3-2 to the Calgary Flames on Saturday, it was the first time this season Kesler, Corey Perry and Ryan Getzlaf were in the lineup at the same time. There are bound Nick Schmaltz Authentic Jersey to be stops and starts for Kesler, who attempts to return to form. He missed the second period against the Flames with a lower-body injury but returned for the third. The Ducks are on their five-day break and next play at the Los Angeles Kings on Saturday (10:30 p.m. ET; FS-W, PRIME, NHL.TV). "He's a guy that historically skates miles, and right now, I would say he's operating at 80 percent, 75 percent somewhere around there," Carlyle said. "He's not 100 percent healthy, but I don't know if every player can say that they are 100 percent healthy at times. "With us now, he's Patrick Kane Authentic Jersey getting an opportunity to play on the power play, in the front of the net. Maybe we're rushing him there. But I think he wants to be there." Kesler, a five-time Selke Trophy finalist as the best defensive forward, took time to talk about his road back from surgery, his chemistry with linemates Jakob Silfverberg and Andrew Cogliano and his 7-year-old, hockey-playing son, Ryker, who landed in the spotlight during the 2017 All-Star Weekend in Los Angeles at Staples Center:
