Penner’s play wowing Ducks teammates

Dustin Penner‘s second time around with the Anaheim Ducks has been a great one to this point.

During the Ducks’ 6-2 win over the Buffalo Sabres on Friday night, Penner had a goal and three assists. Both he and Ryan Getzlaf piled up four points in the blowout win with Getzlaf earning a hat trick.

Following the game, Getzlaf spoke glowingly of Penner’s play.

Being a major contributor on a line with top talent can get you noticed.

Since Penner has played on a line with Getzlaf and Corey Perry, business has picked up. He has a five-game point streak and has piled up 12 points in 11 games. Meanwhile, he has a league-leading to this point plus-minus rating of plus-18.

Compare that to last season with the Los Angeles Kings when he had 14 points in 33 games and was a healthy scratch on occasion. Being back in Orange County is treating Dustin Penner pretty well.
