Anaheim Ducks F Jakob Silfverberg out 4-6 weeks after breaking hand on Cowen's slash in Ottawa

ANAHEIM, Calif. - Anaheim Ducks forward Jakob Silfverberg will be out for at least a month after a slash from Ottawa's Jared Cowen broke his hand.

The Ducks announced Silfverberg's injury Saturday, saying the Swedish forward will be out 4-6 weeks. Silfverberg was slashed by Cowen midway through the third period Friday night.

Silfverberg is off to an outstanding start to his first season in Anaheim, with four goals and three assists in his first seven games. The Ducks acquired Silfverberg in an off-season trade with the Senators for forward Bobby Ryan.

Ducks forward Dustin Penner will rejoin the team before Sunday's game at Columbus. Penner has missed the first three games of Anaheim's trip after taking a hard hit from Dallas forward Ryan Garbutt, who was suspended for five games.

Quote of the Day

I've got a lot of experience and there's a lot of young guys. It's even making me excited a little more. It's kind of a new life. At my age, I feel like I know a lot of things what to do, but I just cannot do it anymore. It's a lot easier to tell them what to do because they've still got the legs and hands to do it. I just know things, but I cannot do them anymore.
