The San Jose Sharks will be without forward Raffi Torres for the start of the season because of an injured right knee.
Torres was injured in a collision with Ducks forward Emerson Etem on Friday night.
Torres and the Sharks will decide in the next few days whether he needs surgery. If he rehabilitates the injury, he might miss only the first month. If he needs surgery, he would probably be sidelined three to four months.
The Sharks signed Torres to a three-year, $6-million contract in June.
The St. Louis Blues added depth at forward, signing veteran Brenden Morrow to a one-year contract.
The 34-year-old Morrow had six goals and eight assists in his final 15 regular-season games with Pittsburgh, which had acquired him from Dallas at the trade deadline.
Before playing for the Penguins, Morrow spent his entire 13-year career with the Stars.
