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

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

I downplayed the first one because I thought it's just a hockey game. We just want to win the game; it's against our rival and we want the two points. I downplayed it, but now having gone through the first one I look back and say, 'Geez, that was really cool.' I think as I've grown a bit older I've got a lot more appreciation for what we're allowed to do every day.
