The Colorado Avalanche traded forward Brad May to the Anaheim Ducks for goalie Michael Wall on Tuesday, shortly before the NHL trade deadline ended.
Sidelined since Dec. 31 with an ankle injury, Parker was placed on injured reserve by the San Jose Sharks on Friday.
Scott Parker was suspended for two games for attempting to climb a glass barrier to fight Brendan Witt.
San Jose, which has retained most of its key players, gave forwards Patrick Marleau and Marco Sturm multiyear contracts.
It would be hard to find a hockey observer who honestly favors the higher-seeded Sharks over the Avalanche in the second round. Still, San Jose has had a lot of rest.
San Jose 3, Colorado 2
San Jose 4, Vancouver 1
