Ducks Hope To Have Ryan Kesler Back By Christmas

Sep 16, 2017 7:20 PM

Ryan Kesler remains out indefinitely after undergoing offseason hip surgery.

"As of right now, there is no timeline whatsoever," general manager Bob Murray told the Ducks website Friday. "He couldn't skate [during the second half of the season]. No push-off on his right leg. He has to rebuild his glutes and quads. That's what we're in the process of doing right now. I'm hopeful to have him back before Christmas, but that's all I'm going to say right now."

Kesler had 58 points (22 goals, 36 assists) in 82 games last season, and had eight points (one goal, seven assists) in 17 Stanley Cup Playoff games.
