Ducks lose Sbisa, Fasth, call up Andersen, Yonkman

The Anaheim Ducks placed defenseman Luca Sbisa and goaltender Viktor Fasth on injured reserve Saturday.

Sbisa suffered a tendon tear in his right hand in a game against the Tampa Bay Lightning on Friday and will have surgery Monday. Sbisa, who has one assist in nine games this season, is out 6-8 weeks.

Fasth is suffering from muscle inflammation (lower body) and is out 3-4 weeks. Fasth is 2-2-1 with a 2.95 goals-against average and .885 save percentage.

The Ducks recalled goaltender Frederik Andersen and defenseman Nolan Yonkman from the Norfolk Admirals of the American Hockey League.

Andersen, 24, is 6-1-0 with a 1.66 GAA and .943 save percentage in seven games with Anaheim this season. He won his first six NHL games from Oct. 20-Nov. 10, marking the first time since December 1993 that a goaltender won his first six career games since Damian Rhodes accomplished the feat with the Toronto Maple Leafs from March 22, 1991-Dec. 2, 1993.

Yonkman, 32, has one goal, eight assists and 140 penalty minutes in 74 NHL games.

Quote of the Day

The fans love it, and it looked like they were having fun. It was great to see this city [Columbus]. They had been waiting a couple years for this game. They did it right.
