ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) -Anaheim Ducks right wing Corey Perry will be sidelined about six weeks after surgery for a lacerated tendon above his right knee.
Perry, the Ducks' top goal scorer, was expected to be released Friday or Saturday.
He was injured in the third period of the Ducks' 1-0 loss at Colorado on Thursday night. The surgery was done that night in Denver by Avalanche team physician Dr. Andy Parker.
``Corey is doing very well this morning, thanks to both clubs' medical staffs,'' Ducks general manager Brian Burke said Friday. ``His injury is not career-threatening and we expect him back 100 percent in approximately six weeks.''
