Ducks left wing Nick Ritchie suffered an MCL (medial collateral ligament) sprain during Friday's game against the Washington Capitals, per Executive Vice President/General Manager Bob Murray.
"Nick's injury is very similar to Josh Manson's injury, so the timeline is between 6-10 weeks," Murray said. "The huge variable will be the first two weeks of rehabilitation."
Ritchie appeared in 27 games this season, recording 10 points (3g/7a) and 54 penalty minutes. The 24-year-old earned his 100th career NHL point (assist) on Nov. 27 at Arizona, and collected his eighth career game-winning goal on Oct. 8 at Detroit.
