The Ducks will be without goalie Viktor Fasth for two to three weeks because of lower body muscle inflammation, and defenseman Luca Sbisa will miss six to eight weeks because of a tendon tear in his right hand, the team announced Saturday. The Ducks promoted goalie Frederik Andersen and defenseman Nolan Yonkman from their minor league affiliate in Norfolk, Va., before Saturday's game at the Phoenix Coyotes. Sbisa played 16 minutes 40 seconds in Friday's 1-0 overtime victory over the Tampa Bay Lightning, fighting with Lightning defenseman Radko Gudas in the first period.

George Lucas wants to build his new art museum featuring works from his personal collection at the Presidio in San Francisco. But officials at the famous site are pushing back, having asked the "Star Wars" creator and other competing projects to rethink their designs before a decision is made. On Thursday, the board of directors of the Presidio Trust met to decide on proposals for developing an eight-acre site across from Crissy Field. Among the proposals vying for physical space is Lucas' art museum as well as  a proposed science-themed center and a mixed-use complex from the Golden Gate National Parks Conservancy.  "In the interest of having the best project possible for the Presidio, we want to provide one more opportunity for teams to adjust their proposals before we make a selection," said the board in an announcement released on Thursday.

Ducks defenseman Luca Sbisa, sidelined throughout the season with a sprained ankle, was assigned Thursday to the team's minor-league Norfolk, Va., affiliate to increase his conditioning to game playing. Norfolk plays three games in three days beginning Friday: at Albany, N.Y.; at Bridgeport, Conn.; and at Hershey, Pa. The team also sent center Rickard Rakell back to Norfolk three days after he was summoned to possibly cover for injured centers Saku Koivu (concussion) and Mathieu Perreault (wrist)

Ducks defenseman Luca Sbisa suffered a sprained ankle in the team's preseason opener Monday against Phoenix and is expected to be out two weeks, a team official said Thursday. A team spokesman said Sbisa, 23, has not yet been ruled out of the Ducks' Oct. 2 regular-season opener at Colorado. Sbisa, from Italy, had a goal and seven assists last season, averaging 19 minutes 50 seconds of ice time, and had 23 penalty minutes in 41 games. The Ducks also trimmed their roster to 41 players, sending 12 players to minor league Norfolk (Va.)

LAS VEGAS - In what would be a main event on almost any other card, world junior-welterweight champion Danny Garcia of Philadelphia will fight Lucas Matthysse of Argentina just before the Floyd Mayweather Jr.-Saul “Canelo” Alvarez fight Saturday night at MGM Grand. The bout is a fight-of-the-year candidate, matching unbeaten Garcia's strong boxing skills against the power punching of Matthysse. For added effect, there's Garcia's controversial father-trainer Angel Garcia, who Wednesday told reporters he would cut off his own head if his son lost to Matthysse, and then Thursday expressed outrage at those supporting Matthysse (34-2, 32 knockouts)

Lucas Matthysse is on the brink of his breakthrough night, riding two dominant knockout victories to his Saturday night world light-welterweight title unification bout against unbeaten Danny Garcia. The co-main event to Floyd Mayweather Jr.-Saul “Canelo” Alvarez at MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas could position the winner to be Mayweather Jr.'s next opponent should he defeat Alvarez. Argentine Matthysse (34-2, 32 knockouts) has dismissed Mike Dallas Jr. by first-round knockout in January and former junior-welterweight world champion Lamont Peterson by third-round technical knockout after knocking him down three times earlier.

 Sherman Oaks Notre Dame is known for producing outstanding kickers, such as the NFL's Kai Forbath and Nick Folk. Kicking coach Chris Sailer was an All-American with the Knights. And senior Lucas Alfonso is making the alumni proud. On Saturday at Oceanside High, he booted field goals of 50 and 49 yards in the first half against Del Oro. Notre Dame holds a 27-3 halftime lead. Daniel Khan has caught touchdown passes of 56 and 45 yards from Grant Kraemer. Kraemer also has a 13-yard TD run and has completed seven of 13 passes for 158 yards.

Some things never change in high school football. The Trinity League is always good. Corona Centennial's offense scores lots of points. And Sherman Oaks Notre Dame has a top kicker. Following the path of NFL kickers Nick Folk and Kai Forbath , Lucas Alfonso had field goals from 50 and 49 yards on Saturday to help the Knights defeat Loomis Del Oro, 41-24, in the Honor Bowl at Oceanside High. Like Folk and Forbath, Alfonso is a student of former Notre Dame and UCLA All-American kicker Chris Sailer . Alfonso didn't attempt a field goal last week in Notre Dame's win over Manhattan Beach Mira Costa, so he was waiting for his chance.

Grant Kraemer passed for 228 yards and two touchdowns, Daniel Khan caught six passes for 157 yards and two touchdowns and Lucas Alfonso maded field goals from 50 and 49 yards to lift Sherman Oaks Notre Dame past Del Oro, 41-24, on Saturday at Oceanside High. Notre Dame opened a 34-3 lead in the third quarter, then seemed to lose interest. A leg injury to Del Oro running back Tevon Rhyne seemed to half the Knights' momentum. Del Oro closed to 34-24 before Koa Farmer scored his second touchdown on an eight-yard run. Sacks by Cameron Page and Brody Lluis in the fourth quarter put a stop to any Del Oro comeback.
