Ducks’ Lundestrom out until January with Achilles tear

Ducks' Lundestrom out until January with Achilles tear

Anaheim Ducks forward Isac Lundestrom will miss the first half of the 2023-24 season after suffering a torn Achilles tendon, the team confirmed, according to The Athletic’s Eric Stephens.

Lundestrom underwent surgery and isn’t expected back until January.

The 23-year-old tallied four goals and 10 assists in 61 games this past season. He was much more productive in 2021-22, registering 16 goals and 13 assists in 80 contests.

Lundestrom was projected to center the team’s third line behind Trevor Zegras and Mason McTavish. His absence could open the door for 2023 No. 2 pick Leo Carlsson to make the team out of training camp.

The Ducks drafted Lundestrom 23rd overall in 2018.
