The Anaheim Ducks will have to attempt to clinch the Pacific Division on Monday without one of their top forwards.

Right wing Bobby Ryan will miss the second of Anaheim’s two-game series at Rexall Place against the Edmonton Oilers due to an illness. The Ducks made the announcement via Twitter roughly 20 minutes prior to opening faceoff.

Ryan, who ranks third on the team with 29 points (10 goals, 19 assists), had appeared in 220 consecutive games for Anaheim. He last missed a game on March 12, 2010.

The Ducks will also play without defensemen Sheldon Souray and Luca Sbisa, who are both suffering from lower-body injuries.

Quote of the Day

[He's] real confident with the puck now, getting it off his stick quick and no second-guessing. We need that. He's such a good guy in the room. He works so hard. That's the big thing. For not a big man, he just fights for every puck and when he scores, the guys appreciate that even more.
