Selanne Out 4-6 Weeks; Ebbett Recalled
Teemu Selanne suffered a cut in his left quad muscle Friday night at Edmonton that did not damage any tendons or other connective tissue, and no surgery will be required. He is expected to return to the Ducks lineup in 4-6 weeks.

"It's just bad luck, but it could be worse," Selanne said. "There's a bright side. That's how I'm going to look at it."

Selanne was injured in the opening minutes of Friday night's 3-2 shootout win at Edmonton. He suffered a laceration on his lower left thigh when his own right skate sliced his left leg during a collision along the boards with Oilers defenseman Denis Grebeshkov.

“I knew right away that I got cut,” said Selanne, who left the locker room on crutches. “It was scary how much blood was coming out. It was all over. You couldn’t even stop it.”

Selanne traveled with the team to Vancouver Friday night and headed back to Anaheim on Saturday to undergo an MRI exam with team medical personnel.

To fill Selanne's void, the Ducks have recalled center Andrew Ebbett from the Iowa Chops, Anaheim’s primary development affiliate in the American Hockey League (AHL).

Ebbett, 25 (1/2/83), collected 10-19=29 points with a +9 rating and six penalty minutes (PIM) in 28 games with Iowa this season. At the time of his recall, Ebbett led the Chops in points, assists and plus/minus, tied for first in appearances and ranked second in goals. The 5-9, 182-pound center recorded a season-high eight-game point streak from Nov. 26-Dec. 12, scoring 3-10=13 points with a +7 rating.

Signed as a free agent on May 16, 2007, Ebbett appeared in three games with the Ducks last season. He made his NHL debut on Feb. 22, 2008 vs. St. Louis, registering two shots with a +1 rating. Ebbett spent the rest of the year with Portland (AHL), leading the club in scoring (18-54=72) while establishing career highs in assists and points. After finishing sixth in the AHL in assists and tied for 11th in scoring during the regular season, Ebbett helped Portland to an Eastern Conference Final appearance, recording 6-11=17 points in 18 Calder Cup Playoff games.

A native of Vernon, British Columbia, Ebbett has appeared in 173 career AHL games since making his professional debut in 2006-07. He has scored 54-112=166 points in those 173 AHL contests between Iowa (2008-09), Portland (2007-08) and Binghamton (2006-07).
