Ducks' Silfverberg out with broken hand
Anaheim's Jakob Silfverberg is expected to miss four-to-six weeks because of a broken hand, an injury sustained Friday night against Ottawa.

The Anaheim Ducks revealed Saturday that forward Jakob Silfverberg sustained a broken right hand against the Ottawa Senators on Friday. He is expected to miss 4-to-6 weeks.

The injury occurred when Silfverberg was slashed midway through the third period and with the Ducks leading 2-1. He did not return to the game following the incident. The injury is a tough one for Silfverberg, 23, who ranks fourth on the team with seven points in his first season with Anaheim. His 35 shots also rank second behind Corey Perry's 40. The Swede became the third player in Ducks history to score four goals in his first four games with the club.

Silfverberg wasn't the only Ducks player hurt Friday night in Ottawa. Center Mathieu Perreault sprained his left wrist and is listed as day-to-day. Also in his first season with the Ducks, the Quebec native ranks third on the team with nine points in 11 games.

Quote of the Day

I kept refreshing the page on the NHL website after the second round and I was shocked he lasted that long. I'm sure the Coyotes were pretty happy to get him. He's such a good player and he plays big in big games.
