Patrick Eaves (Guillain-Barre Syndrome) is starting to work out off the ice.
There is no timetable for Eaves to return to the ice to start skating, nevermind playing, but to see him back in the Arena is great news. "I did a lot of reading because I didn’t understand it," GM Bob Murray said of the illness. "I don’t quite still understand it. With him and talking to the three different neurologists that have dealt with him, it’s not – and, again, you should talk to him not me – a classic case of it. He’s had some symptoms. For him to only have been in the hospital a week … some guys last in there for two months from what I’m hearing and reading about. He’s doing really well. He’s pushing like crazy. Again, he’s a busy guy these days right now. Trying to rehab himself." Nov 12 - 6:18 AM

Patrick Eaves was in the intensive care unit of the hospital last week with Guillain-Barre syndrome.

Eaves is out of the ICU as he has improved. The illness is 'a disorder in which the body's immune system attacks the peripheral nervous system'. Eaves played another game before being sidelined again. It was when he visited with specialists to detect the source of his feelings of physical weakness that the rare disorder was diagnosed and immediate hospitalization was required. The Ducks say he is expected to make a full recovery. "I want to thank Dr. Robert Watkins Sr. and Dr. Danny Benmoshe for their early diagnosis of my condition, along with the proactive Ducks medical team," Eaves said in a statement released Monday. "Thanks to them and the incredible nurses at Hoag Hospital, I’m on the road to recovery. I’ve received tremendous amount of support over the last few days, most importantly from my family, friends and teammates. I’m determined to fully overcome this and return to the ice as soon as possible." We wish Eaves a speedy recovery.

The Anaheim Ducks have announced that Patrick Eaves (lower-body) will not travel with the team for their upcoming four-game road trip.

Eaves hasn't played since he re-aggravated his lower-body injury that cost him the start of the season. He's coming off a career year but his lower-body issues should keep him on the waiver wire for the foreseeable future.
Oct 21 - 4:30 PM

Patrick Eaves (lower body) went to see a specialist.

Eaves' status might be longer than day-to-day, but that's unclear at this time. He has only appeared in two games this season and he hasn't played since Oct. 13.
Oct 21 - 9:13 AM

Patrick Eaves (lower body) isn't expected to return on Friday.

Not too surprising given that Eaves hasn't started practicing with the Ducks yet. Friday's contest would be his second straight on the sidelines.
Oct 19 - 5:10 PM

Patrick Eaves (lower body) hasn't resumed practicing yet.

Eaves isn't likely to be able to skate with his teammates Thursday morning either. That would seem to all-but rule him out for Friday's contest.
Oct 19 - 4:16 AM

Patrick Eaves missed Sunday's game with a lower body injury.

Eaves returned to action on Wednesday after missing the start of the season with the lower body injury but he re-aggravated the injury in Thursday's game and was unable to go Sunday. Consider him day-to-day for now.
Oct 16 - 7:32 AM

Patrick Eaves (lower body) was activated from the Injured List on Wednesday and he notched his first goal of the season against the Islanders.

Eaves worked on a scoring line with Ryan Getzlaf and Corey Perry, so that will certainly get him off on the right foot. The Ducks are starting to get healthy after being dinged up during the preseason. That's bad news for the rest of the Western Conference.
Oct 12 - 2:11 AM

Patrick Eaves (lower body) took part in Wednesday's practice.

Oct 11 - 3:15 PM

Patrick Eaves was at practice for the first time this season as he has been recovering from a lower body injury.

The forward had 32 goals last season in a career year. He lined up in practice alongside Ryan Getzlaf and Nick Ritchie and could be ready to go in the next week or two although he stated there is no timetable for his return. "It was really frustrating," Eaves said. "I had a great summer. Came back ready for camp and I was in probably the best shape I’ve been. Been very frustrating and mentally tough. The body stuff will come and you just got to focus on baby steps. Little improvements and take them for what they are. But it’s been tough." Look for 20-25 goals from Eaves this season.

The Ducks forward has been dealing with a lower-body injury. The 33-year-old had 32 goals and 51 points in 79 games last season. Don't be surprised if Eaves' numbers come way down this year.
Oct 4 - 6:37 PM

There is no guarantee that Patrick Eaves (lower body) will be ready for the opener on Thursday.

Eaves has not played in a preseason game as his injury has not responded well to treatment. He had 32 goals last season and while he is slated to start on the top line with Corey Perry and Ryan Getzlaf, the longer he is out with injury, the more probable someone else can run with the job, possibly Ondrel Kase. Stay tuned.
Oct 1 - 5:49 AM

Patrick Eaves, who has been dealing with a lower-body injury, hasn't resumed skating.

Eaves also hasn't played in a preseason game yet and at this point he might not be able to before the exhibition schedule ends. Ducks coach Randy Carlyle didn't want to rule out the possibility of Eaves getting into a preseason game, but unsurprising he'd like to see Eaves participate in a practice first.
