Anaheim Ducks left wing Jason Blake will be out for three months with tendon damage in his left forearm from a severe cut.
Blake will have surgery next week to repair his arm, the Ducks announced Saturday.
Blake was injured midway through the third period of Anaheim's 1-0 victory over San Jose on Friday night. After Blake fell down while trying to play the puck out of a faceoff, Sharks defenseman Brent Burns' skate accidentally cut him.
The 38-year-old Blake is entering his third season with the Ducks after scoring 16 goals last season. He skates on Anaheim's second line with Saku Koivu and Teemu Selanne.
Blake has been a durable pro, playing in at least 75 games every season since 2000-01.
