Ducks Lose Koivu To Sprained Knee, Ryan Suspension Unlikely

from Curtis Zupke of the OC Register,

The Ducks have lost a star Finnish player to injury for the second time in as many days.

Center Saku Koivu suffered a sprained knee Thursday night, the team said late Friday. A timetable for his return was not immediately known, but recovery from a sprained knee can typically take 2-6 weeks, depending on the severity….

A suspension appears unlikely for Bobby Ryan for his hit on Kings forward Oscar Moller late in Thursday’s game.

Ryan did not have a disciplinary hearing with NHL officials Friday morning. Such hearings usually take place if a player is going to be suspended, but the league is not believed to be reviewing the play.

more on the Ducks…

update 10:42pm, I just received an update on Koivu from the Ducks which states he will be out approximately 1-2 weeks.
