Ducks' Ryan Kesler: No timetable for return

Kesler (hip) could be sidelined until Christmas as his recovery seems to be taking longer than planned, Helene Elliott of the LA Times reports.

Without Kesler, the Ducks' depth down the middle of the lineup will be strained as Antoine Vermette figures to slot into a second-line role. The 33-year-old Kesler is coming off back-to-back 50-plus point campaigns, but it seems impossible that he'll make it three straight at that level given the length of his expected absence.
