Getzlaf misses Ducks' game against Canucks because of upper-body injury

ANAHEIM, Calif. - Anaheim Ducks captain and leading scorer Ryan Getzlaf has been scratched from Sunday night's game against the Vancouver Canucks because of an upper-body injury.

Getzlaf has 10 goals and 12 points through his first 18 games, helping Anaheim vault to the top of the NHL overall standings.

The 9-year veteran, one of only five players on the Ducks' roster who helped them win their first Stanley Cup in 2006-07, recorded his first career hat trick with three goals in the first period of Friday night's 6-2 victory over Buffalo.

Quote of the Day

Unless he really collapses, I don't see him going anywhere. I've been very impressed with his composure and maturity. Once the regular season started, he was a different guy; it was like game on and almost as if he's been around for a long time.
