Fowler has a lower-body injury and is doubtful to return to Friday's game.

Fowler netted the game-winning goal in Sunday's win over the Avalanche.

Fowler has been very steady this season, recording eight points (one goals) in 12 games and never going more than two games without getting on the scoresheet. The two-way defenseman averages 20:32 of ice time per game and should post another season in the 40-point range.

Fowler spoke about losing his partner on the blueline, Ben Lovejoy, after a fight and the impact it will have on the Ducks and him personally. He explained the chemistry the duo has built, saying, "I know where he's going to be or I know what he's thinking in this situation and that", Eric Stephens of the Orange County Register reports.

Both the Ducks and Fowler found a perfect partner to play alongside the dynamic defenseman when Lovejoy was acquired from the Penguins in February of 2013 and coach Bruce Boudreau paired the two together. Francois Beauchemin practiced alongside Fowler during their skate in Chicago Monday. It is yet to be seen who will be Fowler's partner for the next 6-8 weeks, as the loss of Lovejoy could directly impact Fowler's fantasy value. Additionally, the player that will get to take over as Fowler's partner should get extra ice time and opportunity.

Fowler picked up an assist in Friday's home win over the Wild.

That's three straight games with an assist for the young American defenseman, who should compete with Sami Vatanen to be the Ducks' top offensive threat from the back end this season. Fowler isn't seeing top power-play time with Ryan Getzlaf, Corey Perry and Ryan Kesler yet, but he'll likely supplant Vatanen in this role if Vatanen should stumble.

Fowler had an assist and finished with a game-high plus-3 rating in Saturday's win over Buffalo.

It was the first point of the season for Fowler, who logged 20:51 of ice time in the win. It appears he has lost his spot on the top power play to Sami Vatanen, who now mans the point on the elite top unit featuring Ryan Kesler, Ryan Getzlaf, Corey Perry, and Patrick Maroon. Folwer is still a reliable fantasy option though, as the 22-year old is likely to put up another season in the 30-40 point range.

Fowler was on the ice for 19:54 in Thursday's loss to the Penguins. He finished with a minus-3 rating and notched two blocks and two hits.

Though he made a valiant effort to return from a leg injury in time for the start of the regular season, Fowler might have benefited from sitting out an extra day or two. He wasn't active on offense (no shots on goal) and was on the ice for three of the Pens' five even-strength or shorthanded tallies, resulting in a dud of a showing for the United States Olympian.

Fowler (leg) is trying to play in the opener as he skated yesterday and is on the ice for the morning skate in Pittsburgh as well, the Orange County Register reports.

If Fowler is able to play in the opener, the Ducks will have all top-six defenseman at their disposal. A tough road matchup against an Eastern Conference foe in Pittsburgh, Fowler's presence would be extremely welcomed, as he is the main man in Anaheim. After the skate and once more information becomes available, we will get you updated. Recommend having a backup plan in case he cannot go.

Fowler (lower body) was able to get in a practice Wednesday, Eric Stephens of the Orange County Register reports.

Fowler still seems rather unlikely to suit up in Thursday's season opener against the Penguins, but the fact that he's accompanying the team on the road trip suggests he's not far away from returning. The talented young blue liner bounced back nicely in 2013-14 following two subpar seasons, registering six goals, 30 assists and a plus-15 rating over 70 games.

Anaheim's top defenseman will accompany the team on their start-of-the-season road trip and is progressing well, although his availability for Wednesday's opener is still in doubt, the Orange County Register reports.

Fowler (leg) is looking at the positives, which is getting healthier one day at a time. He missed the final game of the preseason Saturday, but has been having private skating sessions with assistant coach Scott Niedermayer and continues to improve. With a travel day and the season opener in Pittsburgh Wednesday, It is unlikely the Ducks will risk playing Fowler. This will likely be one of those last minute announcements, so have a plan ready for your team if he is unable to go.

Fowler (lower body) skated Monday.

Fowler is still questionable for Thursday's season opener, but it's a good sign that he's back on the ice after leaving Thursday's practice with a lower body injury. There should be another update on his status in the next couple days.
