Ducks defenseman Sbisa out two weeks

Anaheim Ducks defenseman Luca Sbisa is out two weeks with a sprained ankle, the team annouced Thursday.

He sustained the injury Monday in the preseason opener against the Phoenix Coyotes. Sbisa played 18 minutes and had a team-leading five hits.

The 23-year-old, entering his sixth NHL season, had eight points in 41 games last season with an even rating.

Defenseman Francois Beauchemin is recovering from a knee injury and could play a preseason game, coach Bruce Boudreau said, according to the Orange County Register. Beauchemin then would be available to play in the season opener Oct. 2 against the Colorado Avalanche.

Quote of the Day

I had one really not-good game. I came back to the hotel and he [his father] was on Skype. My mother called first and said, 'Your father wants to talk to you.' So he moved my mother away, and he yelled at me for like 30 seconds. I understood him, and then he said, 'I'm done.' And he was gone. The next game I got my first shutout.
