How much do the Ducks miss Teemu Selanne?

Turns out you can’t believe everything you read in print.

Handwritten on the whiteboard in the Ducks’ locker room was Monday’s big announcement: “Jake Teemu McDonald, born Monday, 12:50 p.m., 7 pounds, 5 ounces.”

I asked his dad, Ducks center Andy McDonald, if he was serious or kidding. I mean, really, “Teemu”?

“I don’t think my wife would be too happy about that. … It’s Gene, named after my wife’s father.”

Still, the point was made: That’s how much they miss Teemu in this clubhouse.
