The center of the Ducks’ universe…

…is not in Anaheim this weekend, but in Ottawa, where the Ducks have told Scott Niedermayer’s agent, Kevin Epp, that the defenseman won’t have to decide his future by tomorrow (according to this report). If he retires, it’s the type of story that could potentially upstage anything the Ducks do in the draft. If waits to decide until a deadline of July 1, as the report suggests, it could affect the Ducks’ draft strategy.

Confirmation coming soon.
