Dany Heatley, Kyle Palmieri to begin regular season on Anaheim Ducks' injured list

Forwards Dany Heatley and Kyle Palmieri will miss the start of the Anaheim Ducks' season because of injuries.

Anaheim set its regular-season roster Tuesday.

Heatley hasn't skated for his new team since Sept. 28 while nursing a groin injury. He signed with Anaheim in the summer after a 12-season NHL career with four other teams.

Palmieri has a high ankle sprain that kept him out of the preseason. He couldn't skate Monday.

Defenseman Cam Fowler isn't on injured reserve, but might miss the Ducks' season opener with a left leg injury.

Forwards William Karlsson, Rickard Rakell and Emerson Etem all made Anaheim's opening-night roster in place of the injured veterans.

The two-time defending Pacific Division champions open the regular season with a four-game road trip starting Thursday night in Pittsburgh.
