Tuesday: The Ducks have given an update on the injury, stating that Terry will be out for eight to twelve weeks with a non-displaced fracture. That will at least give the young forward a chance to be fully recovered for training camp.
Monday: The Anaheim Ducks have dealt with plenty of injuries in a disappointing season, but have at least watched the development of several of their young players. One of those success stories has been Troy Terry, who dominated the AHL before recently establishing himself as a full-time NHL option. Unfortunately that NHL opportunity has come to an end prematurely, as the team is expected to announce that Terry suffered a broken tibia on Friday night according to Elliott Teaford of the Orange County Register. Terry blocked a shot and will likely be out for the remainder of 2018-19, including the San Diego Gulls’ upcoming Calder Cup playoff run.
Terry, 21, left the University of Denver last year to start his professional career and recorded 41 points in 41 AHL contests for the Gulls this season. He had just 13 points in his 32 NHL appearances, but had recently been given more responsibility and is seen as a building block for the future in Anaheim. The talented forward has plenty of offensive upside and is part of an impressive group of prospects ready to change the look of the Ducks.
That group could very well get another pair of additions this June, as the Ducks own two first-round picks in the upcoming draft. While the one acquired in exchange for Brandon Montour will be in the back half of the round—Anaheim will receive either San Jose’s or St. Louis’ pick depending on final order—their own could be quite early. The Ducks currently sit in 25th place in the NHL and have just two games remaining.
