Josh Manson will be out 5-10 weeks for the Anaheim Ducks with an MCL sprain, general manager Bob Murray said Wednesday.
The defenseman injured his knee in a 2-1 loss at the Dallas Stars on Oct. 24 and missed Anaheim's past three games.
Manson has three assists and a plus-3 rating in 11 games this season. He has 91 points (20 goals, 71 assists) and a plus-55 rating in 346 NHL games, all with the Ducks.
Defenseman Hampus Lindholm, who missed the past two games with a lower-body injury, will return to practice Thursday, Murray said.
Forward Ondrej Kase, who has not played since he sustained a jaw injury in the Dallas game, is day to day.
The Ducks (8-6-0), who started a seven-game homestand with a 7-4 victory against the Winnipeg Jets on Tuesday, entered Wednesday in third place in the Pacific Division. They play the Vancouver Canucks on Friday (10 p.m. ET; PRIME, SNP, NHL.TV).
