  • Patrick Eaves in Hospital

    Anaheim Ducks right wing Patrick Eaves was diagnosed with what is suspected to be Guillain-Barré syndrome, a disorder in which the body's immune system attacks the peripheral nervous system.

    Eaves is resting comfortably in stable condition at Hoag Hospital in Newport Beach, California. He visited specialists last week after feeling signs of weakness, which later led to him being diagnosed and admitted to the Intensive Care Unit at the hospital. Eaves' condition stabilized over the weekend and he was transferred out of the ICU.

    The Ducks said Eaves, who has one goal in two games this season and hasn't played since Oct. 13, is expected to make a full recovery.

    Good to hear that he's stable now but the damage could take months to rehab, or in some cases may be chronic/permanent.

      Wow, reading up on it, seems like a terrifying disease. It's good to hear he's ok, but as Matt said, this could affect his career permanently.

        He is out of the hospital, resting at home. Per his twitter.
