Look for Frederik Andersen (neck) to serve as Anaheim's backup goaltender on Friday.
The Ducks have sent Jason LaBarbera to the minors, which they presumably wouldn't have done unless Andersen was ready to dress. John Gibson has already been tapped to serve as the starter on Friday, but Andersen will probably play between the pipes on Sunday. Feb 27 - 12:57 PM

Frederik Andersen has a good range of motion back in his injured neck.

At this point Andersen is mostly focused on his conditioning. He should be regarded as day-to-day at this point and when he does return, he'll likely be competing for starts with John Gibson.
Feb 23 - 3:10 PM

Frederik Andersen (neck) isn't traveling with the Anaheim Ducks.

The Ducks will play in Calgary on Friday and Edmonton on Saturday. There was originally some optimism about his chances of practicing this week, but it looks like that won't happen. There's no timetable for his return at this point.
Feb 20 - 7:13 AM

Frederik Andersen (neck) might take part in a Ducks' practice by the end of this week.

"It's coming along a little bit," Andersen said. "I'm feeling more comfortable being on the ice. Trying to get the feel of the ice and all that stuff back and tracking the puck." Andersen sustained the injury on Feb. 8. The Ducks are expected to continue to lean on John Gibson during Andersen's absence.
Feb 18 - 4:55 AM

Frederik Andersen (neck/head) took part in skating drills on Saturday.

This is the first time that Andersen has been back on the ice since the net fell on him a week ago, so that's a good sign. The netminder has been outstanding this season with a 29-8-5 record to go with a 2.37 GAA and a .916 save percentage. He will miss Sunday's game and likely Wednesday's match with Tampa Bay but he could return by the weekend.
Feb 15 - 4:46 AM

Frederik Andersen is out of action with a sore neck and head.

We are not sure if he has a concussion but the Ducks did place him immediately on the injured reserve. He is eligible to come off it on Monday but that may be too soon. Andersen is 29-8-5 for the Ducks this season and had been one of the better NHL goalies before his injury.
Feb 14 - 7:19 AM

Frederik Andersen (upper body) has been placed on the injured reserve list.

We don't know for certain that Andersen is dealing with a concussion, although he sustained the injury when he was struck in the back of the net by a falling net, so it's not unreasonable to suspect that he either has a head or neck injury. The fact that he's already been placed on the injured reserve list isn't encouraging either, but that did clear up a spot for the Ducks to recall John Gibson. Ilya Bryzgalov will play between the pipes on Tuesday, but Gibson is more likely to win the temporary starting job if Andersen's injury proves to be significant.
Feb 10 - 11:54 AM

Frederik Andersen (upper body) missed Monday's practice.

Andersen was hit in the back of the head by a falling net during Sunday's game. "He wasn't feeling as good as we'd like him to feel," Ducks coach Bruce Boudreau said. "So it was better to hold him out than to practice him. That's all. We're hoping he feels better later on today and through tomorrow and we'll take it from there." At this point, given where we got hit, we don't know if "wasn't feeling as good as we'd like" is code for potential concussion-like symptoms. He hasn't been ruled out for Tuesday's game though, so we'll have to wait and see if this proves to be serious. If he can't play then John Gibson will probably be summoned from the minors.
Feb 10 - 10:31 AM

Frederik Andersen is listed as day-to-day with an upper-body injury.

The goal fell on top of him in the third period of Sunday's game against Tampa Bay. Anaheim will probably recall John Gibson from the minors if Andersen isn't ready to play on Tuesday night.
Feb 9 - 5:10 PM

Ducks coach Bruce Boudreau was optimistic about Frederik Andersen's (undisclosed) status after Sunday's game.

Andersen left the contest after he was struck in the back of the head when his net fell on him in the third period. The goaltender told Boudreau he was fine, but we'll list him as day-to-day for now. The big test will be if he's able to fully participate in Anaheim's next practice.
Feb 9 - 4:40 AM

Frederik Andersen was injured in Sunday's 5-3 loss to Tampa Bay on Sunday.

Andersen wasn't playing well before he exited the game. The 25-year-old only managed to stop 17 of 22 shots, but Ducks fans will be concerned about his health more than the result. Andersen was hit by his own net as it tipped over. It's unclear how long he will be out. Ilya Bryzgalov replaced Andersen and stopped the only shot he faced in the game. Andersen's record falls to 29-8-5. Ducks coach Bruce Boudreau said that they will know more about Andersen's injury situation on Monday, but it doesn't appear to be serious.
Feb 8 - 8:26 PM

Frederik Andersen left Sunday's game against Tampa Bay after he was hit by a tilted net.

Andersen's net was knocked over and it fell on him. It's an unfortunate injury and hopefully for the Ducks he won't be out too long. The 25-year-old has been solid for Anaheim this season. We'll have an update for you as soon as the Ducks clear up his situation. He was replaced by backup Ilya Bryzgalov.
Feb 8 - 7:43 PM

Frederik Andersen will get the start in Sunday's game against Tampa Bay.

Andersen has been fantastic in goal for Anaheim this season. He has collected nine wins in his last 10 decisions and he has an overall record of 29-7-5. Andersen has 2.30 goals-against-average and a .919 save percentage in 43 games this season.
Feb 8 - 11:49 AM

Frederik Andersen was pummeled with 46 shots from the first place Predators on Thursday night, but only two found their way past him in a 5-2 Anaheim win.

With the victory, the Ducks took sole possession of first place in the league. Andersen was simply incredible despite coming into the game with eight goals allowed in his previous two games. The 25-year-old is now 27-9-5 on the year with a .919 save percentage and 2.30 goals against average.
Feb 6 - 12:13 AM

Frederik Andersen will be between the pipes in Thursday's game against Nashville.

The Ducks' goaltender has eight wins in his last nine decisions. Even though he's in the middle of a great stretch record-wise, he has allowed four goals in back-to-back games. Andersen has a 28-7-5 record with a 2.31 goals-against-average and a .917 save percentage.
