Miller (lower body) did not make the trip to San Jose with the team Monday, Eric Stephens of The Orange County Register reports.

EDGE Analysis

Miller has been limited to just four appearances between the pipes this season due to various maladies. When healthy, the veteran has performed well considering he has posted a 1.87 GAA and .943 save percentage. For now, the netminder has been placed on injured reserve per the NHL media site, although a retroactive designation could make him available as early as Wednesday's tilt against Vegas.

Miller (lower body) could return to practice next week.

EDGE Analysis

As a clear sign of progress, the American netminder has had at least two sessions since Wednesday in which he's been on the ice ahead of practice, but he still lacks a clear timetable for his return. Fortunately for the Ducks, John Gibson is now healthy and available to grab the lion's share of the starts with Reto Berra available as an emergency backup.

Miller (lower body) skated before the Ducks official practice Wednesday, but he's still a few days away from normal team activities, Eric Stephens of the Orange County Register reports.

EDGE Analysis

The Ducks have three days off after Wednesday's game against the Bruins, so that will hopefully be ample time for Miller to recover. This is especially important since Sunday, Nov. 19 marks the first game of a back-to-back, giving Miller a good chance to start. However, until he can get a full practice in, Reto Berra will continue backing up John Gibson.

Miller (lower body) will not play against Tampa Bay on Sunday.

EDGE Analysis

After Miller left in the third period of Friday's game against Vancouver he missed Saturday's morning skate, and hasn't healed enough to suit up Sunday. Reto Berra will receive the backup duties to John Gibson in his absence, and Miller can appear next Wednesday against Boston.

Miller (lower body) didn't skate Saturday, Eric Stephens of The Orange County Register reports.

EDGE Analysis

Since the veteran Miller was off the ice, unlike No. 1 puck plugger John Gibson (head), the latter is in line to make the start against the Lightning on Sunday evening. This was a golden opportunity for Miller to show that he can step in as a spot starter and still be effective between the pipes, but injuries continue to be a problem for the American backstop. He's likely to be evaluated on a daily basis until team doctors give him the green light to return.

Miller -- who left Thursday's matchup with Vancouver -- is suffering from a lower-body ailment, Lisa Dillman of NHL.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

This will no doubt be a big blow for Miller, who already missed nearly the entire month of October with a wrist malady. The netminder had appeared in three straight outings with John Gibson (head) also out of the lineup. If neither guy can give it a go, Reto Berra will likely fill in between the pipes versus Tampa Bay on Sunday with a recalled goalie from AHL San Diego serving as the backup.

Miller was forced to exit Thursday's game against the Canucks in the third period after suffering an undisclosed injury, John Shannon of Sportsnet reports.

EDGE Analysis

Miller missed the first 10 games of the campaign due to a wrist injury, so the Ducks will hope he didn't suffer a similar ailment during Thursday's tilt. Starter John Gibson is currently dealing with a head injury of his own, so if Miller and Gibson are unavailable for Sunday's matchup with Tampa Bay, Reto Berra will likely start against the Lightning.

Miller will start in goal against the visiting Canucks on Thursday, Eric Stephens of The Orange County Register reports.

EDGE Analysis

Starting goalie John Gibson sustained an apparent head injury in Tuesday's game against the Kings, so the Ducks will take time to evaluate him further by giving Miller the nod in this next contest. Once a must-start fantasy option, the American backstop probably has enough left in the tank to adequately fill in for Gibson and keep Anaheim in games. He's gone 1-0-2 with a 2.13 GAA and .946 save performance through three appearances this season.

Miller replaced an injured John Gibson (head) in Tuesday's 4-3 overtime home loss to the Kings, picking up nine saves but yielding the game-winner to Nick Shore.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran Miller tagged in during the third period and at least helped force overtime. While he's clearly past his prime, the 37-year-old goalie could help in a pinch, but his fantasy value is strictly tied to the health of Gibson, who's still being evaluated.

Miller stopped 44 of 45 shots in Saturday's shootout loss to the Sharks.

EDGE Analysis

It was only the second start of the season for Miller and he made it count. The veteran made some sensational saves and was a prime reason the Ducks even managed to get a point. John Gibson is the clear-cut starter for the Ducks, but Ryan Miller has looked good in his two Anaheim appearances thus far, so keep en eye out. The veteran still has some gas left in the tank and could become a quality fantasy option if this recent play leads to an increased workload.
