Ducks may need Hiller after all


The Ducks may still wheel UFA-to-be Jonas Hiller before the trade deadline. But Hiller will remain in Anaheim until Viktor Fasth recovers from his lower-body injury. Fasth could miss up to a month after getting hurt during warm-ups Nov. 22.

The Ducks will ride Hiller and Frederik Andersen until Fasth returns. However, Fasth’s injury history — this is the second significant sidelining for the 31-year-old — may give the Ducks pause before dealing Hiller. The Ducks have the horses to make a deep playoff run.
