Ducks’ Lundestrom out until January with Achilles tear

1 min read

The Anaheim Ducks will face a significant setback as forward Isac Lundestrom is set to miss the first half of the 2023-24 season due to a torn Achilles tendon, as confirmed by The Athletic’s Eric Stephens.

Lundestrom has already undergone surgery for the injury and is not expected to return to action until January. The 23-year-old had a decent performance last season, contributing four goals and 10 assists in 61 games. However, he showcased more productivity during the 2021-22 season, where he recorded 16 goals and 13 assists in 80 contests.

The Ducks had plans for Lundestrom to center their third line behind players like Trevor Zegras and Mason McTavish. But with his absence, an opportunity opens up for Leo Carlsson, the team’s 2023 No. 2 draft pick, to potentially secure a roster spot during training camp.

Lundestrom was originally drafted by the Ducks as the 23rd overall pick in 2018. The team will have to adjust their lineup and tactics to cope with his absence until he returns in January.
