Progress for Getzlaf

Ducks center Ryan Getzlaf, progressing in his recovery from off-season sports hernia surgery, was scheduled to take part in light contact drills for the first time Monday.

Getzlaf has been skating with teammates since the beginning of training camp, but hasn’t appeared in a preseason game or scrimmage. The center, who was due to skate after the players in tonight’s lineup, said he would also do “some pushing and pulling stuff” as a strength test.

“Things are moving the right way,” Getzlaf said. “It’s still looking good for one of the last two preseason games.”
