Ducks’ Getzlaf out at least two games after deflected puck hits face

ANAHEIM, Calif. – Anaheim Ducks captain Ryan Getzlaf will be out for at least two games after a deflected puck broke his nose.

The Ducks put Getzlaf on injured reserve Thursday, which means he’ll miss the club’s upcoming home games against Philadelphia and Chicago.

Getzlaf was hurt during Tuesday’s win at Phoenix when Coyotes captain Shane Doan’s shot deflected off Ducks defenceman Cam Fowler’s stick and hit Getzlaf in the face.

A CT scan Wednesday revealed multiple fractures in his nose. Getzlaf is expected to visit a specialist Friday and the Ducks won’t estimate how much time he’ll miss until after that consultation.

Getzlaf has 13 goals and 24 assists while playing in all 40 games this season.
