Fowler was driven into the boards by Jarret Stoll at 16:31 of the second period. He stayed on his knees and was assisted to the trainer’s room. The team announced before the third period that Fowler was doubtful to return.
Anaheim coach Bruce Boudreau could not update Fowler's condition after the game, as the latter was still being examined by team doctors.
Fowler, 21, leads Anaheim with 22:18 minutes of ice time per game.
I've got a lot of experience and there's a lot of young guys. It's even making me excited a little more. It's kind of a new life. At my age, I feel like I know a lot of things what to do, but I just cannot do it anymore. It's a lot easier to tell them what to do because they've still got the legs and hands to do it. I just know things, but I cannot do them anymore.
