The depth and talent on the Anaheim Ducks blue line took a hit Wednesday when the team announced that defenseman Cam Fowler will likely miss the rest of the regular season with a sprained left MCL suffered last week. The expected recovery time is 3-5 weeks. His injury comes at a bad time because the San Jose Sharks have taken advantage of the Ducks’ recent struggles to tie them in the Pacific Division standings with 97 points entering Wednesday’s slate of games. Fowler, 22, has tallied 36 points in 67 games this season. His powerful shot, playmaking skill and impressive skating ability will be missed on the Ducks’ power play, which is already struggling with a 16 percent success rate. Luckily for the Ducks, they got veteran blueliner Stephane Robidas back in the lineup Tuesday night following his four-month recovery from a broken leg. He was acquired from the Dallas Stars just prior to the NHL trade deadline.Filed under: NHL, Nicholas Goss, Top Stories
