General manager Bob Murray has suggested that Rakell (abdomen) will sit until at least Sunday, but could be out up to a week beyond that.

The team is taking a cautious approach to his return to ensure he's "strong enough going forward." The team should update his status again at some point before his return. There's an outside shot he returns for Thursday's game, but he can safely be ruled out for Tuesday. If he's out for both contests, his next shot at returning would come Sunday, when the Ducks host Vancouver.
