  • Ducks' Simon Despres: Dealing with serious injury
    By RotoWire Staff

    Despres could miss an extended period of time due to his head injury, Eric Stephens of the Orange County Register reports. Ducks' general manager Bob Murray characterized the situation as a "very sensitive issue." The overall tone when discussing Despres' ailment on Tuesday was very somber and seemed to imply that he could be dealing with a head issue similar to what players like Marc Savard have dealt with in the past. Hopefully it isn't as serious as that, but either way we wouldn't expect to see Despres on the ice anytime soon.

  • Ducks' Simon Despres: Lands on injured reserve
    By RotoWire Staff

    Despres (head) is on injured reserve, per the NHL's official media site. Despres is believed to be dealing with a concussion, and the veteran defender has no timetable for his return to game action. However, per league rules, he'll be eligible to return once healthy, assuming the placement on IR is retroactive to his first and only game played this season -- Oct. 13 against Dallas.

  • Despres (head) has returned to Southern California after visiting specialists on the East Coast and remains without a timetable to return, the Orange County-Register reports. Despres exited last Thursday's contest with the upper-body issue and it sounds as though it could be a concussion issue. It's a bit concerning, as general manager Bob Murray suggested that it may be a recurrence of the issues he went through last season. Considering he's back home, it's safe to rule him out for Thursday's contest and it's quite possible the blueliner will miss beyond that.

  • Despres (upper-body) is out for Tuesday's contest against New Jersey, Eric Stephens of OCRegister.com reports. Despres suffered the injury on Thursday and it is now reported that he could be dealing with concussion-like symptoms. If it's confirmed that the blueliner did indeed sustain the ailment, he could be sidelined until November as the swelling in his head subsides. In the meantime, Jacob Larsson figures to see an uptick in his ice time on Anaheim's second defensive line.

  • Ducks' Simon Despres: Out against Islanders
    By RotoWire Staff

    Despres (upper body) will miss Sunday's game against the Islanders. This will be the second game in a row that Despres will miss due to the upper body injury that he suffered on Thursday night. He remains day-to-day for now and his status will be worth monitoring leading up to the Ducks' next game on Tuesday. With Korbinian Holzer also scratched Sunday, look to rookie Jacob Larsson to receive more ice time.
