Ducks' Penner leaves game with injury

ANAHEIM -- Anaheim Ducks left wing Dustin Penner is under evaluation after he left the game Sunday night at Honda Center due to a hit from Ryan Garbutt of the Dallas Stars in the second period.

Penner has full mobility and is walking under his own power, according to the Ducks, who won their seventh in a row in a 6-3 victory.

Penner had just passed the puck in the Dallas end during a Ducks power play when Garbutt hit him up high with his shoulder at 5:29 of the second. The 6-foot-4, 247-pound Penner laid prone before teammates helped him off the ice to the dressing room.

Penner entered Sunday's action with two goals, two assists and a plus-7 rating in five games and re-assumed his top line spot in his second stint with the Ducks.

Asked about Penner, Anaheim coach Bruce Boudreau said, "We'll see. It looks [OK] right now, but there's a big series of tests you have to go through when you're knocked out on the ice."

Quote of the Day

You don't see many. The [Drew] Doughtys, the [P.K.] Subbans, those are guys that create offense from the back and then on top of that ability, the size that he has. In the West you play against some pretty big players, and being able to clear the crease and contain the [Ryan] Getzlafs and the [Corey] Perrys and [Anze] Kopitars and players like that, we're excited about him going back there.
