Anaheim Ducks’ GM Bob Murray spoke out about Getzlaf’s surgery, and updates on Fowler and Kesler’s injuries. This is based on what GM Bob Murray spoke about to reporters in an interview.
GM Bob Murray said that Getzlaf had surgery to repair a fracture to his zygomatic bone (cheek) and that his recovery time could be up to 2 months before he is game ready. Ryan Getzlaf has been out of the game since he obtained an injury on October 29th against the Carolina Hurricanes.
Cam Fowler suffered a knee injury on October 20th in the game against the Montreal Canadians. Murray says that his time frame remains at 6 weeks from the time of the injury. “He’s doing lateral movement in the gym,” Murray said. “He’s responded much better to this one than the one last year which is amazing because they thought this was worse. He’s coming along really, really well.”
Murray said Kesler’s return date still remains sometime around Christmas, but hopes it’s sooner. Kesler underwent hip surgery on June 8 to remove several pieces of floating hip capsule. “He’s skating much harder now,” Murray said. “He’s had to learn his stride all over again, to be quite honest. For a couple years, he’s been, for a lack of a better word, short-striding it. You could see he wasn’t pushing. He has to learn to lengthen his stride again and get the muscles back.
Randy Carlyle (on injuries): Injuries are things that happen in the game, in light of the news that Getzlaf could be out for upwards two months. You have to find a way, as a group, to move forward with what we have. Because players aren’t available is no excuse in this business and in any pro sports business. It’s something you have to overcome. The only way to overcome it is to have more of a committee type of approach. There are going to have to be other people make a contribution.
LET’S GO DUCKS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
