Selanne Named Offensive Player of the Week
NEW YORK/TORONTO (March 27, 2006) - Anaheim right wing Teemu Selanne, whose League-leading 10 points (four goals, six assists) in four victories propelled the Mighty Ducks to fifth place in the Western Conference standings, has been named the NHL's Offensive Player of the Week for the period ending Sunday, March 26.  San Jose goaltender Vesa Toskala, who led the Sharks to three victories with a 1.66 goals-against average, .946 save percentage and one shutout, is the League's Defensive Player of the Week.

Mighty Ducks center Andy McDonald (4-4-8 in four games), Colorado Avalanche center Joe Sakic (4-4-8 in four games), New York Rangers right wing Jaromir Jagr (5-2-7 in four games) and Washington Capitals left wing Alexander Ovechkin (4-3-7 in four games) were runners-up for offensive honors, while goaltenders Cristobal Huet of the Montreal Canadiens (3-1-0, 2.03 GAA) and Rick DiPietro of the New York Islanders (2-0-1, 1.97 GAA) were runners-up for the defensive award.

Selanne tallied an assist in a 2-1 victory at Dallas March 20 and recorded two assists in a 5-4 overtime victory against Colorado March 22.  The 35-year-old Helsinki, Finland native notched a season-high four points (two goals, two assists) in a 6-3 victory over Nashville March 24 and finished the week with three points (two goals, one assist) in a 5-2 win at Phoenix March 25, extending the Ducks' winning streak to six games.

Leading Anaheim in goals (33), points (74) and plus-minus (+26), Selanne is on pace for his best offensive season since a 47-goal, 107-point campaign in 1998-99.  The Mighty Ducks (37-21-12, 86 points) are 20-6-6 since Jan. 1, the NHL's fourth-best record in that span behind Detroit (22-6-4), Dallas (24-8-2) and Carolina (22-8-2) and just ahead of the fifth-place Sharks (20-8-5).

Toskala began the week by recording his first shutout of the season and third of his NHL career, making 33 saves in a 6-0 victory at St. Louis March 21.  The 28-year-old Tampere, Finland native turned aside 24 of 25 shots in a 5-1 victory at Minnesota March 25 and made 30 saves in a 5-4 overtime victory at Chicago March 26.

Toskala improved to 16-6-3 with a 2.69 goals-against average and .898 save percentage in 28 games this season.  The Sharks (36-24-10, 82 points) have climbed to eighth place in the Western Conference playoff race.
