The Anaheim Ducks have ruled goaltender Viktor Fasth out for the game Friday against the Phoenix Coyotes due to a lower-body injury.

The team has recalled Frederik Andersen from Norfolk of the American Hockey League and he will back up starter Jonas Hiller.

According to reports, Fasth suffered the injury during practice Thursday. He has won two of three decisions this season for the streaking Ducks, winners of five in a row heading into Friday.

Quote of the Day

He's a strong kid. He's a competitive kid, and certainly not afraid to go into the corners. He's got the skating ability to escape and help us execute in certain situations, but he's got that competitive nature that's a huge part of it too, especially against a team like this.
