Guhle (knee) will miss six weeks with a sprained MCL.
This is a big blow for the 23-year-old defenseman, as he had eight points in 30 games last year and looked to be ready for a larger role in 2020-21. Guhle will instead miss close to a third of the upcoming season while recovering. His absence makes it more likely to see Kodie Curran, Jani Hakanpaa or Josh Mahura on the Opening Night roster. Guhle will likely land on injured reserve when the season begins.
Guhle signed a two-year, $1.6 million contract with the Ducks on Sunday, Elliott Teaford of Pasadena Star News reports.
Guhle had four goals and four assists across 30 games with the Ducks before the 2019-20 season was put on pause, and the team has now opted to keep him in house for at least the next two years. The 22-year-old has appeared in 59 total career NHL games since being selected by the Sabres in the second round of the 2015 Draft.
Guhle was reassigned to AHL San Diego on Saturday, Elliott Teaford of The Orange County Register reports.
Guhle's reassignment to the minors suggests Hampus Lindholm or Josh Manson might be ready to return from their respective upper-body injuries in time for Sunday's game against the Wild. Guhle had two goals in five games during his recent stint with the Ducks.
Guhle scored a goal on three shots, dished two hits and went plus-2 in Wednesday's 4-3 overtime win over the Avalanche.
Guhle got his second marker in four games as he struck in the first period Wednesday. The 22-year-old defenseman has gotten a chance to play regularly lately with the Ducks' blue line ravaged by injuries. Guhle has eight points, 40 blocked shots, 39 shots on net and a minus-1 rating in 29 appearances this year.
Guhle potted a goal on three shots, blocked four shots, dished two hits and went plus-2 in Friday's 3-2 win over the Penguins.
Guhle was brought up from AHL San Diego as insurance in case Hampus Lindholm (upper body) was unavailable. The former ended up drawing into the lineup Friday and his tally secured the victory. He's amassed seven points, 36 shots and 38 blocks through 26 appearances at the NHL level this year.
The Ducks recalled Guhle from AHL San Diego on Wednesday, Eric Stephens of The Athletic reports.
Hampus Lindholm suffered an upper-body injury during Tuesday's game against the Oilers, so Guhle is being brought up to add depth on the blue line. The Ducks don't play again until Friday versus the Penguins, but Guhle will almost certainly be in the lineup if Lindholm can't go.
The Ducks reassigned Guhle to AHL San Diego on Tuesday.
The timing of this move is odd, as it leaves the team with five healthy defensemen ahead of Tuesday's game versus the Oilers. Expect the team to recall another blueliner before the Pacific Division clash. Josh Mahura is likely a top candidate to get the call.
Guhle earned an assist in Sunday's 6-5 overtime loss to the Golden Knights.
Guhle is up to six points in 25 games this year, both of which represent career highs for the lightly-used defenseman. He's added 34 blocked shots and 33 shots on goal in 2019-20.

With the Ducks off until Sunday's matchup with Vancouver, Guhle may be promoted back to the NHL after suiting up in a pair of contests with the Gulls versus AHL Iowa on Friday and Saturday. If the defenseman does get recalled, he will likely be up against Korbinian Holzer for a spot in the lineup.
Guhle was called up from AHL San Diego and will be in the lineup for Thursday's contest versus Calgary.
Guhle was recently sent down by the club with the indication that Eric Gudbranson (upper body) could be closing in on a return to the ice. Guhle has just four points in 19 NHL games this season, and he'll draw into the lineup on the third defensive pair with Josh Manson for Thursday's game.
The Ducks sent Guhle back to AHL San Diego on Thursday.
Guhle's demotion could be a signal that Erik Gudbranson (upper body) is making some progress in his recovery from an upper-body injury, especially with a two-game road trip on tap Sunday and Monday. Guhle provided some hustle plays during his appearance with Anaheim, collecting three hits and three blocked shots against Buffalo.
The Ducks recalled Guhle from AHL San Diego on Sunday, Eric Stephens of The Athletic reports.
Guhle's return to the big club Sunday is likely some insurance for Erik Gudbranson, who suffered an upper-body injury in Friday's game against Toronto. Guhle hasn't skated in NHL action since Dec. 6, and he's accumulated four points in 18 games this campaign.
The Ducks reassigned Guhle to AHL San Diego on Thursday.
The 22-year-old has seen action in 18 games with the big club this season, racking up four points, including his first NHL goal. Guhle was a healthy scratch the past two games, however, evidencing his demotion was in the works. He will likely be one of the first defensemen recalled should injuries hit the Ducks.
Guhle scored his first career NHL goal on his only shot of the game in Wednesday's 4-3 shootout loss to Arizona.
Guhle sent a rather harmless-looking point shot through traffic that eluded Arizona goaltender Darcy Kuemper, getting the Ducks on the board in the first period. More significantly, it was Guhle's first NHL goal in his 44th career game. The 22-year-old played just 11:32 on Wednesday, the lowest among Anaheim defenseman, and figures to remain in a third-pairing or depth role for the Ducks.
The Ducks recalled Guhle from AHL San Diego on Monday, Helene Elliott of the Los Angeles Times reports.
Guhle took the ice in four minor-league games and posted a goal and three helpers. The 2015 second-round pick will get another shot with the big club, but it's unclear if he'll immediately be inserted Tuesday against the Red Wings. Guhle hasn't been able to find his game at the top level with nine points in 36 appearances over the last four seasons, so he can be safely passed over in redraft fantasy leagues.
Guhle collected an assist and went plus-2 in Saturday's 5-2 win over the Avalanche.
It's his first point in two games since returning from a lower-body injury. Guhle is up to three assists in six appearances this year. His previous high-water mark is five assists in 18 games in 2017-18 with the Sabres, but on a young Ducks team, Guhle figures to be a central part of the defense. He's not likely to overwhelm in any single category, as he carries more value on the ice than he does in fantasy.
Guhle (lower body) was lifted from injured reserve Monday, per the NHL's official media site.
Guhle looks like he'll be ready to rock for Tuesday's road game against the Predators. It's unsettled who will come out of the lineup, but Michael Del Zotto and Korbinian Holzer figure to the top candidates for the press box.
Guhle (lower body) is listed on injured reserve, per the NHL's official media site.
The Ducks have yet to release an expected timetable for Guhle's recovery, but the fact that he's now on IR suggests he may be in danger of missing extended time. Another update on the 22-year-old blueliner's status may not surface until he's officially activated off the injured list.
Guhle (lower body) isn't expected to play Wednesday against the Sabres, Lance Lysowski of The Buffalo News reports.
Guhle's still on the mend from a lower-body injury, so he'll sit out for the third straight game. He was solid in his first four outings this year with two assists, six shots on net and seven blocked shots. His next chance to crack the lineup will be Friday against the Hurricanes.
