from Sunday’s Ducks notebook, which didn’t make it to the web in every market…
Hedican was unofficially retired when he signed with the Ducks in October. He was thrown into an integral blue-line role when Francois Beauchemin suffered an ACL injury in November.
Hedican finished with a goal and six points in 51 games, but said Saturday “the coach and teammates didn’t get to see me play at the level I can play.
“I knew I could help (in the playoffs) if I was healthy. That was the thing that was very difficult for me to get through.”
Center Petteri Nokelainen confirmed he suffered a broken hand early in Game 7 against Detroit, and is probably going to have surgery within a week. Forward Erik Christensen said he will have surgery as soon as possible to repair a torn labrum that he played with all season.
