Ducks GM Bob Murray has good medical news and a good feeling about his young team – The Athletic

ANAHEIM, Calif. Pleasantly surprised.

That was Bob Murray and the feeling about his Ducks one month into the season. And that is also the general manager and his mood on the state of two important pieces who were lost to injury last week.

First, about the injured.

Murray confirmed a knee injury that Josh Manson suffered in the first period of a road loss to Dallas. It is an MCL sprain and not a tear, shortening a recovery period that was feared to be months into one that will be weeks. The timeline he gave Wednesday was as little as five weeks or as many as 10. The defenseman is receiving platelet-rich plasma injections and Murray hopes to have a more definitive timeline within another week and a half.

We were concerned for a few days, Murray said. We were concerned. Orr (Limpisvasti, the Ducks team physician) was very happy last night. Thats good. You dont replace Josh either, by the way.
