Anaheim Ducks Defenseman Placed on IR

The Anaheim Ducks will be without Nathan Beaulieu for at least the next week, as the 29-year-old defenseman has been placed on injured reserve (IR). 

It's certainly concerning to see that Beaulieu has to miss more time, as he has dealt with a ton of injury trouble over the last few seasons. For example, he was limited to only 24 games last season with the Winnipeg Jets, where he had four assists and 25 penalty minutes. Now, he is set to miss some time in 2022-23. At this juncture, the specifics of his injury or an estimated recovery time have not been announced.

Here's to hoping that Beaulieu's injury is not too serious and that he can get back into game action shortly. Time will tell what happens on that front.
