Tim Jackman RW ANA 12 Hrs

Jackman is slated to miss 4-6 weeks due to a lower-body injury, Curtis Zupke of NHL.com reports.

With just seven points in 53 games to date, Jackman's fantasy utility is restricted to leagues where his PIM (he has recorded 84 this season) are of assistance.

Jackman (lower body) is being listed on the Ducks' injured reserve list.

The Ducks made a slew of additions ahead of Monday's trade deadline, so Jackman was likely whisked away to injured reserve to open up a roster spot. Since he last played in Sunday's game against the Stars before exiting with the injury, Jackman won't be eligible for activation until Mar. 9, ensuring that he'll miss the Ducks' next three games. The Ducks had previously listed Jackman as day-to-day, but the winger was reportedly sent back to Anaheim for a more thorough evaluation. With that in mind, it's no lock that he'll be able to immediately return to action next week when eligible.

The goal was just the fifth of the season for Jackman, but the penalty minutes weren't much of a surprise for the aggressive fourth liner. He paces the Ducks with 79 PIM on the campaign.

The activation would suggest that Jackman will be available for Wednesday's rematch with the Sharks. Jackman had been forced out of the game against San Jose prior to the Christmas break following a hit to the head, but it doesn't sound like he suffered any significant concussion symptoms. He'll be plugged back in on the Ducks' fourth line.

Jackman (head) received clearance to return to game action Wednesday, Curtis Pashelka of the San Jose Mercury News reports.

It's not yet known if coach Bruce Boudreau will include Jackman in his lineup Wednesday versus the Sharks, against whom the winger first suffered the head injury following a punch to the head from John Scott. Though Scott will remain under suspension for Wednesday's contest to defuse the potential for a brawl ensuing, Jackman is still listed on injured reserve for the Ducks. Boudreau could just opt to have Jackman sit out an extra game before making his return over the weekend.
