Anaheim Ducks forward Max Jones has been ruled out of action for anywhere between four to six months, the team revealed on Friday. Jones suffered a torn pectoral muscle during the Ducks’ 3-2 overtime victory against the Calgary Flames at the Scotiabank Saddledome on Monday night.

Despite having failed to add any points to his tally during the first two games of the regular season, the Ducks will be reeling from this injury setback, especially with it coming at such a turbulent time for the team. After winning two of their first three games, including a stunning 4-1 opening game victory over the Winnipeg Jets, the Ducks’ defense appeared to collapse, as the team lost 5-6 to the Edmonton Oilers before being swept aside 5-1 by the Jets who were clearly out for revenge.

Ducks general manager Bob Murray released the following statement on Friday: “It’s a tough blow for Max as he made strides last season and was heading in the right direction this year as well. We hope to have him back this year and at full strength.”

Jones has scored 28 points in his 137 game career thus far while tallying 11 points (seven goals, four assists) in 46 games for the Ducks last season.
