According to general manager Bob Murray, Fowler (lower body) and the remaining injured Ducks have been cleared to play ahead of next season.
Fowler missed the final 12 contests of the regular season prior to the league going on hiatus due to his lower-body issue. The 27-year-old missed the 30-point and 60-game marks for the second straight year. If he can stay fully fit next season, the blueliner should be capable of producing from the blue line.
Fowler (lower body) said Monday in an interview with Kyle Shohara of AnaheimDucks.com that he's doing well in his rehab program and is nearly back to full health. "I've been able to skate and feel good. I'm pretty much there, if not super close to feeling 100 percent again," Fowler said.
Fowler had been sidelined since mid-February with the lower-body injury, missing 12 games before the NHL suspended its season March 12. Based on his comments, the blueliner, who noted that he's already resumed skating, should be ready to play whenever the NHL clears teams to reconvene for training.
General Manager Bob Murray said Monday that Fowler (lower body) is expected to be out at least two more weeks, Helene Elliott of the Los Angeles Times reports.
The team was patiently waiting on the results from Fowler's MRI on Friday, and as evidenced by this news, the injury is serious enough to keep him out multiple weeks. Fowler has missed the past three games, and if this timetable holds, he'll miss at least seven more games. As long as the American is sidelined, look for Jacob Larsson and newly acquired Matt Irwin to draw into the lineup on defense.
Fowler (lower body) will not play Sunday versus the Golden Knights, Eric Stephens of The Athletic reports.
Per Stephens, head coach Dallas Eakins is awaiting the results of an MRI on Fowler's injury. In the meantime, Fowler will miss his third straight contest. It's looking increasingly likely that the defenseman will be out longer team -- Michael Del Zotto and Korbinian Holzer should continue to see playing time while Fowler is on the mend.
Fowler (lower body) won't be in the lineup for Friday's clash with Colorado, NHL.com's Dan Arritt reports.

Fowler (lower body) will not play in Wednesday's game against the Panthers, Elliott Teaford of The Orange County Register reports.
Fowler was a surprise scratch in warmups with the injury. Michael Del Zotto will enter the lineup on the second pairing in Fowler's stead.

The blueliner set up Nicolas Deslauriers in the first period for Anaheim's first goal of the night, and then Derek Grant for the team's final tally with less than a minute left in regulation to force OT.

Fowler registered two assists and three shots in Wednesday's 4-3 shootout loss to Arizona.
Fowler assisted on Sam Steel's second-period goal and set up Troy Terry's third-period tally. He's now riding a four-game point streak and has amassed a goal and five assists during that stretch.

The 27-year-old has nine points in 19 games this season and can be counted on once again for his typical 30-plus points. He won't move the fantasy needle greatly over the course of an entire season, but can be helpful for stretches for owners who are in a pinch.
Fowler scored a goal, added an assist and went plus-2 in Tuesday's 7-4 win over the Jets.
Fowler got the Ducks on the board in the first period, answering a Nikolaj Ehlers goal. The defenseman then supplied the secondary assist on the first of two Carter Rowney tallies in the third.

Fowler is up to five points in eight contests this year, with four of those points coming on a four-game point streak.
