Anaheim Ducks forward Mathieu Perreault suffered an upper-body injury on Friday and didn’t return return to tonight’s game against the St. Louis Blues.

NHL.com’s Curtis Zupke points out that Perreault fell awkwardly into the boards, likely causing his upper-body issue.

Perreault has enjoyed a nice first season with the Ducks, scoring 30 points in 51 games played. Perreault has had some minor injury issues this season, including missing a game in January with a lower-body injury and four contests in December.

The Ducks ended up beating the Blues 1-0 today.

    Fun game to watch. PHYSICAL!

    The Blues looked a lot better than they did against the Nucks. They need to spend their entire Saturday shooting pucks ON net. Something like 20+ missed shots? I understand that you gotta pick your spots and go high on Hiller, but that was ridiculous. I yelled “Hit the F#&%ING net!” way too many times at my TV.

    Good game by Els too…
