ANAHEIM - For picking up points? It shouldn’t be a problem.
For picking up chicks? Well, let’s just say it’s a good thing Anaheim Ducks centre Ryan Getzlaf is already off the market.
Getzlaf was struck in the face by a slap shot as the final seconds ticked off the clock in Wednesday’s Game 1 victory over the Dallas Stars and, although Anaheim’s captain missed practice Thursday and wasn’t publicly showing off the damage, his teammates reported it ain’t pretty.
Getzlaf’s brother Chris, a receiver for the CFL’s Saskatchewan Roughriders, posted a photo to Twitter on Thursday evening that proves it.
“Luckily, he’s married, he’s got a couple of kids,” said Ducks defenceman Ben Lovejoy. “He’s not out trying impress people with his face.”
Ducks fans — and probably a lot of fantasy playoff poolies, too — can exhale, because Getzlaf will be in Anaheim’s lineup for Friday’s Game 2 at Honda Center.
