Ducks recall Ebbett; no word on Selanne

The Ducks brought up center Andrew Ebbett from Iowa today after Teemu Selanne left with a lacerated thigh in the first period of Friday’s 3-2 shootout win at Edmonton. The Ducks had a roster spot to burn since they traded Brian Sutherby, so it’s no indication of whether or not Selanne will be placed on IR. He’s flying to Anaheim to get his MRI at 4:15 p.m. today.

The better news on Selanne is that it doesn’t seem to be as bad as the lacerated quadriceps tendon that cost Corey Perry the last month of last season, as well as the beginning of the playoffs.

Head coach Randy Carlyle saidIt’s a deep cut, but we don’t think it is any where near what Corey Perry had a year ago where he missed six weeks.”

Selanne told the Orange County Register “The MRI is going to tell exactly if it’s surgery or not,” Selanne said. “It’s just bad luck, but it could be worse. There’s a bright side. That’s how I’m going to look at it.”
