Anaheim forward Bobby Ryan left the first period of the Ducks' game against Calgary on Friday night with what appeared to be an ankle injury.
Ryan lost an edge and fell into the corner behind the Flames' net and was slow to get up. He hobbled to the bench and tested his left ankle, but was unable to put any weight on it and went to the dressing room.
Ryan, who has 30 or more goals in each of the past four seasons, has six goals and 18 points in 22 games this season for the Pacific Division-leading Ducks.
Yeah, it was a pretty special moment for me. Today was my Dad's [55th] birthday. I have a lot of family in town, so it was a special moment for me to score my first one today. A win definitely would have capped it off, but you can't have everything.
