Leo Carlsson suffered a sprained right MCL Thursday vs. Calgary. He is expected to be out of the lineup approximately 4-6 weeks.
Radko Gudas suffered a lower-body injury Thursday and is unavailable tonight. He will be reassessed following the Holiday Break.…
Carlsson exited Thursday’s game against the Calgary Flames in the third period with an apparent leg injury. The 18-year-old was battling for the puck near the boards when Flames defenceman MacKenzie Weegar fell on his leg.
Carlsson stayed down and was eventually helped from the ice and down the tunnel into the dressing room.
He played 14:04 and had two penalty minutes before leaving the contest.
The Karlstad, Sweden native has eight goals and seven assists in 22 games in his rookie season after he was selected second overall by Anaheim in June's draft.
Forward Trevor Zegras was activated off the injured reserve on Saturday after missing the last 20 games with a lower-body injury.
