ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) - Anaheim Ducks defenseman Luca Sbisa will be out at least six weeks with a torn tendon in his right hand.

The NHL-leading Ducks also announced Saturday that goalie Viktor Fasth will miss another 3-4 weeks with muscle inflammation in his lower body.

Anaheim recalled goalie Frederik Andersen and defenseman Nolan Yonkman from Norfolk of the AHL.

Sbisa was hurt during the Ducks' 1-0 overtime victory over Tampa Bay on Friday. The Swiss defenseman will have surgery on Monday.

Fasth was expected to start Friday, but the Ducks said he was hurt in warmups. The Swedish goalie already missed a month earlier this season with a lower-body injury.

Andersen went 6-1 with a 1.66 goals-against average and .943 save percentage while filling in for Fasth as Jonas Hiller's backup.
