Ducks To Be Without Captain Ryan Getzlaf After Broken Nose

ANAHEIM (AP) — Anaheim Ducks captain Ryan Getzlaf will be out for at least two games after a deflected puck broke his nose.

The Ducks put Getzlaf on injured reserve Thursday, which means he’ll miss the Ducks’ upcoming home games against Philadelphia and Chicago.

Getzlaf was hurt during Tuesday’s win at Phoenix when Coyotes captain Shane Doan’s shot deflected off Ducks defenseman Cam Fowler’s stick and hit Getzlaf squarely in the face.

A CT scan on Wednesday revealed multiple fractures in his nose. Getzlaf is expected to visit a specialist on Friday, and the Ducks won’t estimate how much time he’ll miss until after that consultation.

Getzlaf has 13 goals and 24 assists while playing in all 40 games this season.
