New, comments

The Ducks defenseman was a no-show at Anaheim's morning skate. Skating in his place was rookie defenseman, Sami Vatanen.

Things are not looking good for defenseman Cam Fowler.

Per Ducks:

Eric Stephens of the Orange County Register tweeted the following from the Ducks' morning skate:

In Saturday night's 7-4 victory over the Kings, Fowler was pushed face-first into the dasher boards by LA's Jarret Stoll. Fowler remained on all fours on the ice for several minutes while being attended to by the trainer. As he attempted to stand, Cam's legs wobbled and he needed to be helped off the ice by the trainer and Francois Beauchemin. Once getting to the bench, Fowler continued to need to be supported as he walked down the tunnel. Just from seeing Fowler's face as he went to the bench, the kid looked like he didn't remember his own name.

The league determined the hit did not call for disciplinary review and no hearing was held.

We will continue to update this stream if we hear anything else.
