Anaheim Ducks defenseman Nate Guenin will likely miss the remainder of the season. He was injured in Wednesday’s game against the St. Louis Blues when he was hit above the eye. He suffered small fractures of his orbital bone above his left eye. Guenin was hit with a pass when attempting to defend a 2-on-1 rush.
According to Eric Stephens of the OCRegister, Boudreau has stated the Guenin will likely miss the remainder of the season. Fortunately, no surgery will be required.
“It just showed great courage for him to finish that game and to play at that level,” Boudreau said. “When we got that news, I don’t know what can be done and if there’s anything that can be done to prevent it”
With the Ducks dwindling defense, Guenin has stepped in to help out. I personally feel he has done a good job. He has been averaging about 13 minutes a game, which is pretty solid. In 15 games, he has 2 goals and a +6 rating.
In other news, defenseman Toni Lydman will return to the lineup tonight against Boston. He went through full practice with the team on Saturday and looks to be 100%.
