Gudbranson (upper body) is expected to miss another two weeks, Helene Elliott of the Los Angeles Times reports.
Gudbranson has already missed the last seven games since being placed on injured reserve on Feb. 9, and this news will rule him out for roughly another seven. The 6-foot-5 blueliner has four goals and nine points in 44 games with the Ducks this season.
Gudbranson (upper body) will need at least another week before getting back into the lineup. Coach Dallas Eakins told reporters, "Gudbranson is coming along very good, he'll be evaluated here in the next few days and hopefully we'll see him on the ice in a week or so."
Gudbranson has already missed the Ducks' last four contests and will be sidelined for at least the next three based on the timeline provide by Eakins. With just nine points in 51 appearances this season, the blueliner won't offer much in terms of offensive production once cleared to play, which limits him to a mid-range fantasy option at best.
The Ducks placed Gudbranson (upper body) on injured reserve Sunday, Kyle Shohara of the Ducks' official site reports.
Gudbranson was already ruled out of Sunday's game against Buffalo and was sent back to Anaheim for re-evaluation. His placement on IR signals that the defenseman will miss at least a week, so his next chance to suit up is next Sunday against Vancouver. In the meantime, recent call-up Brendan Guhle will draw into the lineup.
Gudbranson (upper body) won't be in the lineup for Sunday's game against Buffalo and has been sent back home for re-evaluation, Eric Stephens of The Athletic reports.
Gundbranson left Friday's game against Toronto in the first period, and as evidenced by this news, he could be dealing with something significant. In his stead, Brendan Guhle, Korbinian Holzer and Josh Mahura are all candidates to replace Gundbranson in the lineup. Expect the team to update the 28-year-old's status ahead of Tuesday's game against St. Louis.
Gudbranson suffered an upper-body injury and is questionable to return to Friday's game against the Maple Leafs, Eric Stephens of The Athletic reports.
Per Stephens, Gudbranson was injured on a hit in the first period. The defenseman skated just 3:35 over four shifts prior to his exit. If he's unable to return Friday, there should be an update on his status before Sunday's game in Buffalo.
Gudbranson notched a shorthanded helper, a fighting major, three shots on goal and two hits in Monday's 4-2 loss to the Sharks.
Gudbranson set up Ondrej Kase's second-period tally. Then, in the third period, Gudbranson dropped the gloves with Sharks winger Evander Kane. The busy performance gave the defenseman nine points, 93 PIM, 81 hits and 69 shots through 45 games this season between the Ducks and the Penguins.
Gudbranson registered an assist and two shots on goal in Sunday's 5-4 shootout win over the Predators.

Gudbranson has amassed six points, 82 PIM, 44 hits and 36 blocked shots in 28 appearances since joining the Ducks in a trade from the Penguins on Oct. 25. The 27-year-old is mostly a defensive presence -- he's not consistent enough for many fantasy owners' interests.
Gudbranson picked up an assist, two shots on goal, three hits and a plus-3 rating in Monday's 3-0 win over the Islanders.
Gudbranson set up Ondrej Kase for the final goal of the game. The 27-year-old defenseman has three points in 14 games since a late October trade from the Penguins to the Ducks. Overall, he has 35 hits, 23 blocked shots, and 27 shots on goal through 21 appearances. Gudbranson has never exceeded 13 points in a campaign, so he's safe to ignore in fantasy.
Gudbranson was acquired by the Ducks from the Penguins on Friday in exchange for Andreas Martinsen and a 2021 seventh-round pick.
After joining Pittsburgh at the deadline last year, Gudbranson is already packing his bags for a new team. The emergence of John Marino created a logjam on the Pens' blue line, which resulted in Gudbranson serving as a healthy scratch in four games this season. With Josh Manson (lower body) banged up, Gudbranson could find himself suiting up for his new club as early as Saturday's matchup with Colorado if he can get there in time.
Gudbranson registered two hits and one giveaway in 15:03 of ice time against Buffalo on Thursday.
Gudbranson spent 1:14 of his 15:03 shorthanded, so it shouldn't come as a shock that he was held without a shot. The blueliner shouldn't be counted on for offensive output, considering last year was only the second time he's reached the 10-point mark.
Gudbranson picked up an assist in Saturday's 3-2 victory over Dallas.
Gudbranson ended an 11-game pointless streak with his tally, but is still looking for his first goal in a Penguins uniform.

"I thought he played really well," Sullivan said in a report by the Pittsburgh-Post Gazette. "He moved the puck. He was physical. You could see the edge he plays with. I thought he had a strong game." As part of the 2018-19 campaign, Gudbranson stacked two goals and six assists against a minus-27 rating with the Canucks prior to joining the Pens at the trade deadline.
Gudbranson (immigration issues) joined the Penguins for Wednesday's practice and should be available against Buffalo on Friday.
Gudbranson's arrival comes just in time for Pittsburgh, as the club could be facing the loss of Chad Ruhwedel (upper body), who was injured in Tuesday's clash with Columbus. The 26-year-old Gudbranson figures to take on big minutes with his new club and will likely log more than his 17:59 season average with Vancouver.
Gudbranson will not be ready to play Tuesday versus Columbus due to immigration issues, Jason Mackey of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.
Thought to be ready to provide immediate reinforcement on the blue line, Gudbranson's immigration issues will prevent him from facing the Blue Jackets in Columbus on Tuesday, leaving the Penguins very thin on the back end. Pittsburgh's newest defenseman will hope to have his affairs in order in time to dress Friday in Buffalo.
Gudbranson was acquired by the Penguins from the Canucks on Monday in exchange for Tanner Pearson, Bob McKenzie of TSN reports.
Gudbranson will likely need to slot into the lineup for the Penguins right away against the Blue Jackets on Tuesday, as the club will be without Brian Dumoulin (concussion) or Kris Letang (upper body).

Gudbranson will look to end his 12-game point drought against his former team, the Panthers, on Sunday.
Gudbranson isn't known for his offense; however, his eight points are the most he's posted as a Canuck, and he is on pace to top his career-best 13 points. Over the past two outings, he has a combined eights hits, but also a minus-7 rating with no PIM.

Gudbranson (upper body) will be a game-time decision ahead of Sunday's clash with Edmonton, Kevin Woodley of NHL.com reports.
Gudbranson was expected to be in the lineup versus the Flyers on Saturday, but missed the game due to his upper-body issue.
