Ducks' Ryan Getzlaf out for 4 to 6 weeks

January 5, 2011 | 10:35 am

The return of Ducks' captain Ryan Getzlaf is expected after the Jan. 30 All-Star Game break.

Getzlaf was ruled out for four to six weeks because of nasal sinus fractures sustained when he was hit in the forehead with a puck Dec. 28 against Phoenix.

Specialists ruled out surgery, and the fractures remain stable and non-displaced. Getzlaf, 25, is the Ducks second-leading scorer, with 37 points in 40 games.
