Teemu Selanne has a slightly sprained left shoulder and Ryan Getzlaf has an inflammation of the left ankle, a Ducks spokesman said Monday, leaving the status of both forwards as day to day and making them questionable for the team's game against Chicago on Wednesday at the Honda Center.

Both were hurt during the Ducks' 4-2 victory Sunday over San Jose and each underwent an MRI exam today. Selanne is due to be re-evaluated on Tuesday. Getzlaf's test showed an inflammation in the ankle that he sprained a few days before the Olympics but showed no additional damage.

Enforcer George Parros, who was struck by a puck during Sunday's morning skate and suffered a bruise and cut on the side of his head, might practice on Tuesday and is expected to be available for Wednesday’s game.

In case one or more of those players can't play, the Ducks recalled left wing Kyle Calder from the Toronto Marlies of the American Hockey League.

Calder had two assists in 14 games this season with the Ducks. With the Marlies he had 11 goals and 24 points in 31 games, including three goals in his last two games.
