The Anaheim Ducks are trying to clinch the Pacific Division on Monday, but they’re doing so without winger Bobby Ryan.
The 26-year-old forward is sitting out a match against the Edmonton Oilers tonight with an illness, according to the team. NHL.com points out that this breaks up a streak in which he’s played 220 consecutive games for the Ducks; he last missed time on March 12, 2010.
The budding power forward isn’t the only player who’s banged up for Anaheim. Bruce Boudreau’s bunch is coping without defensemen Luca Sbisa and Sheldon Souray, as well.
