News: Silfverberg (head) skated on his own Tuesday.
Impact: Silfverberg is still recovering from an apparent head injury he suffered after taking an illegal blow to the head from the Sharks' Raffi Torres in Saturday's exhibition. Silfverberg has been cleared for the Ducks' next team practice, and may still be able to suit up for Anaheim's regular-season opener against the Sharks on Saturday.
News: Helgesen (foot) was placed on injured reserve Monday, Eric Stephens of the Orange County Register reports.
Impact: Helgesen was expected to get a chance to debut with the parent club at some point this season after consecutive encouraging campaigns playing in the WHL, but he'll miss at least the first week of the season. The extent of the setback is unclear at this point, as is the 21-year-old's role on the team once healthy.
News: Thompson (shoulder) was placed on injured reserve Monday, Eric Stephens of the Orange County Register reports.
Impact: The move is more of a procedural one, as Thompson was already slated to miss at least the first month of the season after undergoing left shoulder surgery in June. The club hasn't provided an updated timetable, but at this point a mid-November return seems like the best case scenario for the bottom-six forward.
News: Silfverberg (head) did not practice Monday, Eric Stephens of the Orange County Register reports.
Impact: Silfverberg left Saturday's exhibition against the Sharks after taking a vicious hit to the head from Raffi Torres, and was ultimately unable to return to the contest. Torres has a history of dirty play, and will probably face a suspension for the blow. Silfverberg is likely dealing with a head injury, which means his status for Saturday's regular-season opener against San Jose is currently uncertain at best.
