Update: Former Ducks winger Patrick Maroon has landed nicely in Edmonton after his move from Anaheim at the trade deadline. His two goals Saturday gave him 11 points in 12 games with the Oilers after he had 13 points in 56 games with the Ducks this season.

"It's going to be odd playing them for the first time, but I'm excited to play," Maroon said. "I'm sure I'll yak at them a little bit. [But] I made some really close friends over there and I'll always be friends down the road."

His linemates are Jordan Eberle and 2015 top draft pick Connor McDavid, who has a seven-game point streak and is fourth in rookie scoring even though he has played only 41 games.

The Ducks wrap up their Canada trip following a rally from a three-goal deficit Saturday that matched the franchise record for largest road comeback, last achieved in 2010.

Injured defensemen Kevin Bieksa and Sami Vatanen sat again but both are on the trip. Forward Chris Stewart returned from a broken jaw and is wearing a face shield.
