Getzlaf_300 Ducks center Ryan Getzlaf, who sprained his left ankle Monday night against the Kings, skated for five minutes today at practice and felt no discomfort afterward, a club spokesman said.

Anaheim finishes a pre-Olympic road trip this weekend, and Getzlaf is hoping to play by Sunday when the Ducks  visit Edmonton.

The Ducks also play Saturday night at Calgary.

The fifth-year player, who is on Canada's roster for the Olympic Games, has appeared in 55 games this season for the Ducks, scoring 15 goals and totaling 57 points.
