Ryan Getzlaf injury: Ducks forward will not play Game 4

Jerome Miron-USA TODAY Sports

The NHL's second leading scorer this season is going to miss the Anaheim Ducks' game in Dallas on Wednesday.

The Anaheim Ducks will not have Ryan Getzlaf in the lineup for Game 4 of their Western Conference playoff series against the Dallas Stars.

Just hours before faceoff the team announced that he will be out of the lineup with an "upper body" injury and is currently listed as day-to-day. Earlier in the series Getzlaf was injured when he was hit in the face with a Tyler Seguin slap shot. He returned to play with a shield protecting his face.

Getzlaf finished the regular season as the NHL's second leading scorer with 87 points (31 goals, 56 assists).

He is currently Anaheim's leading scorer in the series with two goals and two assists.

The Ducks lead the series 2-1.
