Ducks' Hiller suffers lower-body injury

ANAHEIM, Calif. -- Anaheim Ducks goalie Jonas Hiller left Sunday's game against the Columbus Blue Jackets with a lower-body injury and did not return.

His status was not immediately known.

Hiller suffered the injury as he sprawled out in the crease to make a save late in the first period.

Iiro Tarkki, who was recalled from AHL Syracuse earlier Sunday because of a groin injury to Dan Ellis, replaced Hiller and made his NHL debut.

If Hiller's injury is serious, it could put Anaheim in a bind. The Ducks announced earlier Sunday that Ellis would miss about four weeks.
Quote of the Day

You don't see many. The [Drew] Doughtys, the [P.K.] Subbans, those are guys that create offense from the back and then on top of that ability, the size that he has. In the West you play against some pretty big players, and being able to clear the crease and contain the [Ryan] Getzlafs and the [Corey] Perrys and [Anze] Kopitars and players like that, we're excited about him going back there.
