Ducks' Fowler suffers upper-body injury
Anaheim Ducks defenseman Cam Fowler left Saturday night’s game against the Los Angeles Kings with an upper-body injury.

ANAHEIM, Calif. -- Anaheim Ducks defenseman Cam Fowler left Saturday night’s game against the Los Angeles Kings with an upper-body injury.

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.

Quote of the Day

He's only 17 but he can see the ice so well and he moves the puck and goes to the open ice all the time, so I just think he's a player that is ready to play in the NHL. I'm really looking forward to coaching someone like this.
