Cam Fowler of Ducks will miss start of playoffs

Defenseman, injured in game against Flames, out 2-6 weeks @NHLdotcom

Anaheim Ducks defenseman Cam Fowler will miss the start of the Stanley Cup Playoffs with a lower-body injury, general manager Bob Murray said Thursday.

Fowler will be out at least two weeks but could be sidelined for as long as six weeks.

"I think we caught a little bit of a break, but we'll know in a week," Murray said before the Ducks played the Chicago Blackhawks.

Fowler was injured Tuesday in a 3-1 win against the Calgary Flames. He left the game at 6:09 of the third period after a collision with Calgary defenseman Mark Giordano.

"It could come around really quickly," Murray said of Fowler's recovery. "It's a different type of injury. It's the way the knee on knee hit."

Fowler had 39 points (11 goals, 28 assists) in 80 games, one point shy of his NHL career high, which he established in his rookie season of 2010-11 (10 goals, 30 assists).

Anaheim is in first place in the Pacific Division. The playoffs begin April 12.
