Eaves Questionable for Game 4 for Ducks

The Anaheim Ducks could be without Patrick Eaves for Game 4 of their best-of-7 series with the Edmonton Oilers. The forward, acquired at the trade deadline, was seen in a walking boot on Monday by Ducks beat writer Helene Elliott.

The 33-year-old, who has two goals and four points in seven games for the Ducks in seven playoff games, was limited to three shifts and just 1:11 of ice time in the third period of last night's 6-3 win at Rogers Center. He finished with 12:33 of total ice time, and it is not known what the nature of his injury is yet.

Dallas received a supplemental pick from the Ducks in the deal for Eaves that could become a first-round pick in the 2017 draft if the Ducks reach the Western Conference Final.
