Anaheim Ducks forward Corey Perry will be out of action for the next 3-4 weeks, the team announced Tuesday.
Perry sustained a knee sprain Friday in a game against the Minnesota Wild. He left midway through the first period after he was knocked into the boards on a hip check by defenceman Keith Ballard. Favoring his left leg, he needed assistance to leave the ice and immediately left the bench.
No penalty was called on the play.
The team recalled Rickard Rackell from Norfolk of the American Hockey League on Saturday.
Perry leads the Ducks with 14 goals this season. He missed five games last month because he contracted the mumps virus.
