Anaheim Ducks D Cam Fowler out 3-5 weeks with sprained ligament in left knee

ANAHEIM, Calif. - Anaheim Ducks defenceman Cam Fowler will be out 3-5 weeks with a sprained ligament in his left knee.

The Ducks announced the prognosis for their high-scoring defenceman's injury Wednesday.

Fowler has missed Anaheim's last two games with the injury, which could keep him out for the remainder of the regular season. He was hurt in the second period of a game in Colorado on March 14.

The Ducks' season ends April 13.

Fowler is enjoying a breakout season with six goals and 30 assists in 67 games. He is Anaheim's fourth-leading scorer and its ice-time leader with nearly 24 minutes per game.

Fowler also played for the U.S. Olympic team in Sochi.

Anaheim also will face San Jose on Thursday without centre Nick Bonino, who injured his foot Tuesday night.

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.
