Stephens spoke with Ducks head coach Bruce Boudreau, who said the 21-year-old blueliner was ready to return and it was just a matter of when the club would work him back into the lineup.
Fowler hasn’t played since taking a hit from Kings forward Jarret Stoll on Feb. 2 and suffering an upper-body injury.
He’s missed the last eight games — the Ducks have gone 7-1 over that stretch — but participated in a 75-minute conditioning practice this week and said he felt ‘great’ afterward.
His return will be a boon for an Anaheim club that’s off to one of its best starts in years. The Ducks sit atop the Pacific Division and second in the Western Conference, trailing white-hot Chicago by just four points.
In six games this year Fowler has one assist while averaging close to 20 minutes per game.
