Tonight’s perhaps a big night for the Anaheim Ducks, who will get their first look at defender Haydn Fleury, their biggest acquisition from Monday’s trade deadline. The 24-year-old will debut paired with Kevin Shattenkirk, as the Ducks try to figure out the future of their D-corps.

Ryan Getzlaf, who has missed five games with a back injury (including Monday’s 4-0 win over the San Jose Sharks), is expected to return tonight for the Ducks, as well.

Starting in net for the Sharks will be Josef Korenar, who has graduated to back up after the team traded Devan Dubnyk. The 23-year-old has played in one period of NHL hockey, in relief of Martin Jones last Saturday in a 4-2 loss to the Los Angeles Kings. This will mark his first NHL start.

Here’s everything you need to know to tune in tonight:
