Jesse Blacker was originally the property of the Toronto Maple Leafs, who drafted him in the second round in 2009 but never dressed him for an NHL game. They traded him to the Ducks in November 2013, and between the two franchises he played exclusively in the AHL up until this season. Barely a year after the Ducks acquired him, he made his NHL debut during the great Ducks defensemen injury plague of 2014. A handful of days later they traded him to the Florida Panthers.

Season Recap

Blacker played 15 games for the Norfolk Admirals and one game for the Ducks in 2014-15. After the trade, he played 40 games for the San Antonio Rampage. In those 45 AHL games, he finished with 6 goals, 17 assists, and 23 points. His only career NHL game to date did not go how he probably envisioned it. He played 6:03 during a 4 - 1 loss to the Chicago Blackhawks and finished with a -2 rating and an even strength shot attempt differential of -9 while playing mostly alongside Matt Clark.

That was on November 28th. He became a member of the San Antonio Rampage on December 4th when Bob Murray traded him to the Panthers organization in exchange for Colby Robak.

Ducks Impact

None. An avalanche of injuries forced him into the lineup for one game, and then he was traded for another player that will not have a significant organizational impact.
