But when Edmonton’s Denis Grebeshkov knocked him awkwardly into the boards Friday night, he didn’t bounce back like a kid just out o juniors. And with good reason, he needed eight stitches in his leg from where a sharp skate sliced his skin.
It actually sliced more than that, slicing several tendons in his quadricep. The result is that the Selanne will be out of action at least a month, maybe six weeks.
The injury bug has hit the Ducks hard, defenseman Francois Beauchemin has already been lost for the season due to a knee injury.
