ANAHEIM - The Anaheim Ducks placed forward Ryan Getzlaf on injured reserve Thursday with multiple nasal sinus fractures.

A CT scan on Wednesday diagnosed the problem that was caused when Getzlaf took a puck to the forehead during Tuesday's win over Phoenix.

Getzlaf will see a specialist on Friday for additional tests that will determine how long he will be out of action.

The 25-year-old captain has 13 goals and leads the team with 24 assists over 40 games this season, his sixth in the NHL.
