Anaheim Ducks D Luca Sbisa out 6-8 weeks, G Viktor Fasth out 3-4 weeks with injuries

ANAHEIM, Calif. - Anaheim Ducks defenceman Luca Sbisa will be out at least six weeks with a torn tendon in his right hand.

The NHL-leading Ducks also announced Saturday that goalie Viktor Fasth will miss another 3-4 weeks with muscle inflammation in his lower body.

Anaheim recalled goalie Frederik Andersen and defenceman Nolan Yonkman from Norfolk of the AHL.

Sbisa was hurt during the Ducks' 1-0 overtime victory over Tampa Bay on Friday. The Swiss defenceman will have surgery on Monday.

Fasth was expected to start Friday, but the Ducks said he was hurt in warmups. The Swedish goalie already missed a month earlier this season with a lower-body injury.

Andersen went 6-1 with a 1.66 goals-against average and .943 save percentage while filling in for Fasth as Jonas Hiller's backup.

Quote of the Day

We want to make sure that whoever makes our team really makes our team by earning it and not putting them in situations where they get preference because of their status as a first-round pick or whatever it might be. That's not going to happen. Everybody has to earn their way on our team.
