Cam Fowler suffered a knee injury Friday night but the extent of the injury has not been announced.

It does not look good for the Ducks defenseman as he could not put any pressure on the knee leaving the ice. Fowler could be out weeks or even months depending on the severity of the injury and that will hurt the Ducks and your fantasy team. Anaheim plays on Tuesday and look for Hampus Lindholm to return to the lineup. Brandon Montour should be bumped up to the top power play as well.
Oct 22 - 6:56 AM

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

Anaheim Ducks head coach Randy Carlyle announced that the only obstacle remaining in Lindholm's return is the green light from the player himself.

Lindholm will likely be a game-time decision for Tuesday's game against the Flyers. His return would come at a great time seeing as Cam Fowler might be missing time after sustaining a lower-body injury in Friday's win against the Montreal Canadiens.
Oct 21 - 4:28 PM

Anaheim Ducks head coach Randy Carlyle has announced that defenseman Cam Fowler (lower-body) is undergoing a MRI and does not have any more updates.

Fowler was injured falling to the ice awkwardly and appeared to be in some discomfort. The Ducks blueline looks like they will be without their top three defensemen with Hampus Lindholm and Sami Vatanen already out injured. If Fowler misses time, look for Brandon Montour to get more of an opportunity on the power play. The good news is that Fowler has until Tuesday to get himself healthy enough to suit up for the Ducks.

Ryan Getzlaf (lower-body) was skating on the top line alongside Corey Perry and Rickard Rakell on Saturday.

It looks like the imminent return of Ryan Getzlaf will push Rakell back to the wing. The Ducks don't play again until Tuesday, leaving Getzlaf with a few extra days to heal up. He has two points in two games this season and should be in all lineups when he returns from his injury.
Oct 21 - 2:41 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

Brandon Montour recorded a goal and an assist in Friday's 6-2 victory versus Montreal.

Montour gave the Ducks a 4-2 lead early in the third period with his second marker of the year. He has four points through seven games for Anaheim's injury-ravaged defense corps.
Oct 21 - 9:07 AM

Antoine Vermette notched a goal and a helper in a 6-2 win against Montreal on Friday night.

Vermette and linemates Chris Wagner and Corey Perry combined for two goals and five points in the contest. Wagner has three points, including two goals, in his last two appearances.
Oct 21 - 9:04 AM

Derek Grant netted a pair of goals in Friday's 6-2 win over Montreal.

They were the first markers of Grant's NHL career. He has contributed just nine points in 93 career outings. Grant has two points in seven matches this season.
Oct 21 - 8:59 AM

Kevin Bieksa picked up a couple of assists and 16 penalty minutes in a 6-2 win over the Montreal Canadiens.

Bieksa picked up a game misconduct for giving a couple of punches to Andrew Shaw while it appeared that the Canadiens forward wasn't looking. Bieksa was never much of a point producer and should not be owned in any formats. The two assists were his first points of the season and they came on goals by Brandon Montour and Dennis Rasmussen.
Oct 21 - 8:56 AM

Ondrej Kase was off injured reserve and back in the fold on Friday night.

In Kase's first appearance since Oct. 9, he picked up an assist in 13:33 of ice time against Montreal in his return. Kase has one goal and two helpers in four outings this season.
Oct 21 - 3:25 AM

Cam Fowler suffered a lower-body injury in Friday's win over the Canadiens.

Fowler fell to the ice awkwardly and it was obvious that he was in some discomfort. Ducks head coach Randy Carlyle didn't really provide an update on his status after the game, but he did mention that they'd find out more about the injury on Saturday. We'll consider Fowler day-to-day for now.
Oct 21 - 1:29 AM

John Gibson stopped 49 of 51 shots in a 6-2 win over the Montreal Canadiens on Friday night.

Of the 51 total shots, 30 came during the second period where Gibson made several huge saves to preserve his team's lead. This allowed the Ducks to pull away in the third period with three quick goals on Price. Gibson's record improved to 3-2-1 on the year with his impressive performance. He'll most likely be back in the crease on Tuesday when the Ducks travel to Philadelphia.
Oct 21 - 12:58 AM

Sami Vatanen (shoulder) will be unable to make his season debut on Friday.

It will be Vatanen's seventh consecutive game on the sidelines to start the campaign. As previously reported, he might be able to return during the Ducks' upcoming four-game road trip.
Oct 20 - 3:56 PM

Hampus Lindholm (shoulder) won't be able to return on Friday.

Lindholm is getting close to returning though. Consider him day-to-day beyond Friday's contest.
