Miller is expected to miss six weeks with a sprained MCL.

Miller was hurt against the Devils on Sunday and will be re-evaluated in two weeks. The Ducks are expecting Miller to miss six weeks, so they’ve claimed Chad Johnson off of waivers from the Blues. This injury shouldn’t affect the Ducks too much, John Gibson has started 78 percent of their games so far.

The Ducks have recalled Jared Coreau from San Diego (AHL).

With Ryan Miller leaving Sunday’s game with a lower-body injury, Comeau comes up to be John Gibson’s backup. The former Red Wings netminde has gone 3-6-1 with a 3.66 GAA and .895 SV% in 12 games with San Diego this season. He likely won’t see any NHL action unless Miller is forced to miss an extended period of time.

The Ducks have acquired Daniel Sprong from the Penguins for Marcus Pettersson.

Sprong, 21, was a second-round pick (No.46 overall) in 2015 but has had a difficult time getting his legs under him in Pittsburgh. After torching the AHL for 32 goals and 33 assists (65 points) in 65 games with Wilkes-Barre/Scranton (AHL), Sprong picked up just four assists in 16 games with the Penguins this year. He had a hard time breaking into the Penguins top-6 and wasn’t as effective in the bottom-6. Sprong has a chance to play top-6 minutes in Anaheim, making him worthy of a speculative waiver add.
