Silfverberg (hand) suffered a non-displaced broken finger Sunday against the Blues. Silfverberg continues to skate but has stopped all puck handling drills for the foreseeable future. Originally thought of as a minor injury, it appears the Swede will miss time as a result of the injury. There is no official timetable for his return.
Silfverberg (hand) will miss Wednesday's game versus the Islanders, Eric Stephens of The Athletic reports. Silfverberg was unlikely to suit up Wednesday and it has been confirmed that he will not dress for the home contest against New York. Anaheim's next game is Saturday, on the road versus the Golden Knights. With seven points in six games, the Swedish-born forward has gotten off to a hot start in 2018-19.
Silfverberg sustained an upper-body injury against the Blues on Sunday. Prior to the third-period injury, Silfverberg scored the first goal of the game for the Ducks. Look for an update on his status in advance of Wednesday's contest against the Islanders.
Silfverberg fashioned the game-tying goal in Monday's 3-2 shootout home win over the Red Wings. Silfverberg didn't take his eyes off the puck after Adam Henrique's attempt at the doorstep was denied by Jimmy Howard. Already with one goal and four assists on the young season, Silfverberg is thriving in Anaheim's top six, which is particularly clutch because the team is without several established veterans due to injuries.
Silfverberg had an assist on the game-winning goal Saturday in a 1-0 win against Arizona. Silfverberg now has four assists in two games in 2018-19, a great start for the steady defenseman. The 27-year-old Swede will look to add to his streak Sunday against the Red Wings.
