The injury that Patrick Eaves was dealing with during the playoffs was revealed to be a high-ankle sprain.

At one point Eaves tested the injury and suffered a setback as a result. It's not clear if Eaves would have been able to play in the Stanley Cup Final had the Ducks gotten that far. He had 32 goals and 51 points in 79 regular season games and another four points in seven postseason contests.

Patrick Eaves did not travel with the Ducks to Nashville and is doubtful on Monday with a leg injury.

Coach Randy Carlyle gave Ducks fans some hope after Game 5 that Eaves would return as he was upgraded to day-to-day but Sunday was a different story. "There wasn’t a positive response from Eaves’s skating yesterday," Carlyle said. "So we decided we’d leave him at home." Eaves was injured in the series against Edmonton and has not played since April 30. His scoring has been missed in the Ducks lineup.

Coach Randy Carlyle stated that forward Patrick Eaves (leg) is skating and is one step closer to making a return to the lineup.

There is still no chance that Eaves is ready for Game 5 tonight against the Predators. There has been much chatter surrounding the loss to Ryan Johansen for the Predators and Randy Carlyle stated that it is a similar loss to them losing Eaves. The Ducks would love to get back Eaves and his 32 regular-season goals back but it doesn't appear he'll be ready to play again in this round. We'll keep you up to date with any news surrounding Eaves' injury situation.

There is a chance that Patrick Eaves could return during the playoffs as he recovers from a right leg injury.

The walking boot is off and Eaves is no longer wearing crutches and that has allowed him to start working out again. "But that’s kind of the long term," Eaves said. "Every day, I have little tests that I have to pass. If I feel good, then I can try something else. It’s slow but it’s something. That’s more my focus. I know if I pass a lot of those, then hopefully I’ll get out there sooner." Eaves has been a valued member of the Ducks power play and his absence has hurt the unit. He has two goals and four points in seven playoff games thus far after a 32 goal performance in the regular season.

The lower body injury suffered by Patrick Eaves has hurt the Ducks' power play.

The Ducks were 0-4 in Game 1 against Nashville Friday and are now zero for their past 20 chances, last scoring in Game 2 against Edmonton. He was hurt in Game 3 against the Oilers so you can see the effect it is having on the power play. Eaves is not close to returning so the Ducks better figure something out quickly or their uphill climb against the Predators will be more difficult.
May 14 - 6:51 AM

Patrick Eaves (lower body) isn't close to being available, per Ducks GM Bob Murray.

Eaves last played on April 30th. The silver lining in Thursday's update is the fact that he did work out today.
May 11 - 5:09 PM

Patrick Eaves (lower body) was seen leaving Honda Center on crutches.

He didn't skate at practice Tuesday and hasn't played since Apr. 30 because of a lower-body injury. It seems unlikely that Eaves will be ready to play on Wednesday night.
May 9 - 4:46 PM

Patrick Eaves (lower body) didn't skate Tuesday.

That isn't surprising based on the update coach Randy Carlyle provided on Monday when he said that Eaves was "highly questionable" for practice. It also makes him doubtful for Game 7 on Wednesday night.
May 9 - 1:50 PM

Patrick Eaves is "highly questionable" for Tuesday's practice, per Ducks coach Randy Carlyle.

Eaves hasn't been available for Anaheim since April 30. It remains to be seen if that will change for Game 7 on Wednesday, but naturally his chances of returning will be regarded as higher if he practices.
May 8 - 6:02 PM

Patrick Eaves (lower body) will miss Game 6 Sunday night.

Eaves hasn't been available since April 30. He's scored two goals and four points in seven postseason games.
May 7 - 5:18 PM

Patrick Eaves is officially ruled out of Game 4 against Edmonton on Wednesday night.

He's not on the ice for the pre-game warmup. Head coach Randy Carlyle mentioned that Eaves was doubtful for the game, but now we know for sure. Look for Ondrej Kase to take his spot in the lineup. Eaves is considered day-to-day for now.
May 3 - 9:41 PM

Patrick Eaves (lower body) is doubtful for Game 4 on Wednesday night, according to coach Randy Carlyle.

That shouldn't come as a surprise after Eaves didn't skate on Tuesday. He suffered a lower-body injury on Sunday night. Eaves has two goals and four points in seven playoff games this year.
May 3 - 1:39 PM

Patrick Eaves (lower body) wasn't in a walking boot on Tuesday after being seen wearing one earlier.

Eaves didn't participate in Tuesday's practice though, so his availability for Game 4 on Wednesday is still in doubt. As previously mentioned, if Eaves doesn't play, then Corey Perry might move up to the top line.
