Ducks' Jakob Silfverberg out 4-6 weeks

Ducks forward Jakob Silfverberg sustained a broken right hand when he was slashed in Friday night's game against Ottawa, his former team. He is expected to miss four to six weeks, the Ducks announced Saturday.

Silfverberg, 23, has four goals and three assists in 11 games. He had spent the bulk of the season alongside Teemu Selanne and Mathieu Perreault on the Ducks' second line.

Silfverberg was slashed by Ottawa's Jared Cowen in the third period of the Ducks' 2-1 win over the Senators. Silfverberg was acquired from Ottawa in July, along with prospect Stefan Noesen and a first-round draft pick in exchange for forward Bobby Ryan.
