The Ducks return to Anaheim Wednesday night, hosting the Nashville Predators at Honda Center.

It was bad enough for the Anaheim Ducks that they went 1-3-3 on their seven-game road trip, culminating in a 5-0 loss to the Red Wings in Detroit on Saturday night. Right wing George Parros is expected to miss four weeks after undergoing laser surgery to repair a torn retina in his left eye, the club reported on Monday.

Parros was hit in the eye during practice in Detroit on Friday, the second time he has been struck near the eye in practice this season. The 31-year old Parros has one assist in 11 games for the Ducks, who have lost eight of their last nine contests.

Anaheim on Saturday recalled center Peter Holland from Syracuse, and he figures to stick around for a month or so while Parros is out. The Ducks return home on Wednesday to battle the Nashville Predators at Honda Center. Anaheim will be in southern California for 31 of the next 32 days.
