Eventful last few weeks for Anaheim grinder Tim Jackman.
After signing a contract extension with the club on Feb. 19, the Ducks announced today that Jackman would miss the next 4-6 weeks with a lower-body ailment.
Jackman was hurt early in Sunday’s 3-1 win over Dallas after colliding awkwardly with Stars forward Ales Hemsky:
Prior to the injury, Jackman had five goals and seven points while averaging 8:29 TOI in 52 games this season. The Ducks rewarded Jackman for that output — and for his toughness, as the club’s fighting majors leader (with eight) — with a one-year, $700,000 deal.
Ryan Getzlaf and Corey Perry each had a goal and an assist as the Anaheim Ducks defeated the Dallas Stars 3-1 on Sunday night.
Anahiem has now won five of its last seven while the Stars are winless in six.
Cayton Stoner had the other Ducks goal. John Gibson made 39 saves for the win.
Patrick Eaves had the lone Stars goal.
Jhonas Enroth stopped 19 shots in the loss.
With his two point night, Getzlaf (669) moved into a tie with Paul Kariya for second place on the franchise’s all-time points list.
The Ducks lost TIm Jackman early in the first period to a lower body injury. Bruce Boudreau said the forward is “day-to-day”.
Anaheim has held Dallas to just one goal in each of the first two meetings between the two clubs. The pair meet for a third and final time on April 8 at the Honda Center.
