Perry Suffers Leg Laceration; Out Six Weeks

Ducks forward Corey Perry suffered a right quad tendon laceration in Thursday night's 1-0 loss at Colorado and is expected to be out of the lineup approximately six weeks.

Perry was inadvertently cut above the right knee by the skate of Colorado goalie Jose Theodore midway through the third period. He underwent successful surgery last night to repair the tendon, performed by Avalanche Team Physician Dr. Andy Parker at a local Denver hospital. Perry was not in any serious danger and is expected to be released from the hospital today or tomorrow. 

“Corey is doing very well this morning, thanks to both clubs’ medical staffs,” said Ducks Executive Vice President and General Manager Brian Burke. “His injury is not career-threatening and we expect him back 100 percent in approximately six weeks.”

Perry leads the Ducks in goals with a career-high 29 and is second in scoring with 54 points.

Following the Ducks' practice Friday at Honda Center, both head coach Randy Carlyle and winger Teemu Selanne commented on the injury:

Carlyle
“It was actually Theodore’s skate that cut him. He got turned around and his leg came up and cut Corey Perry. It’s not very often you see something like that. As soon as he came to the bench, we could see the sock was cut, and he was holding his leg and saying, ‘Something’s wrong, something’s wrong.’ We let our medical staff look at it, and it’s a credit to the people in Denver and the doctors to get it under control.”

“Anytime a player gets injured, it’s fortunate it’s not an extended period of time. You could say six weeks is extended, but in reality it could have been a lot more serious.”

“It’s hard to say how much blood he lost because there is a layer of sock and a layer of equipment and a layer of underwear, and if there was any blood, it was hard to see.”

“We’ve recalled Bobby Ryan from Portland. Obviously he has offensive skills. We’ve seen a lot of Bobby Ryan. We look at him as a player who is still developing. He’s been playing well in the American Hockey League and we’ll see if he can make a contribution playing some offensive minutes.”


Selanne
“We play this sport and things happen. Obviously, we’re not happy, but what are you going to do? It’s a tough break, but we have to bounce back.”

“Perry has been a big part of this team the whole year and he’s going to be missed. But a lot of guys are going to have to take more responsibility to fill that hole.”

“Things like that don’t happen very often and it’s tough to see. But it’s one of those things where you’re unlucky, but you’re lucky too because it could have been worse.”

“When you have key guys missing, it’s another opportunity for some other guys. The last couple of games we haven’t been where we want to be, so there are a lot of things we have to improve.”
