Anaheim Ducks forward Jakob Silfverberg will be out four to six weeks after a slash from Ottawa Senators’ Jared Cowen broke his hand.
Silfverberg was slashed by Cowen during the third period of the Ducks’ 2-1 victroy in Ottawa on Friday.
Silfverberg has four goals and three assists in his first 11 games played. Silfverberg was acquired by the Ducks in an offseason trade with the Senators for forward Bobby Ryan.
The other Anaheim prospect acquired from Ottawa in the trade is forward Stefan Noeson, who is out for the season with a knee injury.
The Ducks will get forward Dustin Penner, who has missed the first three games of Anaheim’s trip, back when they face Columbus Sunday night.
The Ducks are 1-2 so far on their eight-game trip.
