Getzlaf Update & Lapierre Talks

via the Anaheim Ducks,

Ryan Getzlaf had another CT scan today and visited with a specialist (maxillofacial surgeon). The CT scan showed that the nasal sinus fractures are non-displaced and stable. However, more evaluation of the bone breaks are needed over the next several days before a definitive expected absence can be determined. For the time being, Getzlaf is out indefinitely.

Lapierre, 25, said he is excited about getting a new start with the Ducks after getting progressively less playing time with the Canadiens. He averaged 11:41 over 38 games this season, slightly down from 12:16 last season and a big drop from his average of 14:48 in 2008-09.

The 6-foot-2, 200-pound native of St. Leonard said he didn’t ask out, though he did ask for clarification of his role under Coach Jacques Martin.

“We had a discussion. I didn’t really ask to be traded but I wanted to know where things were at for me,” he said. “I asked if I was part of their plans and they pretty much said no.
