Teemu Selanne’s knee injury may leave the Ducks in limbo until training camp.
According to Finnish newspaper Ilta-Sanomat, the 41-year-old right wing will not announce whether he’ll retire or re-sign before September. Selanne underwent arthroscopic surgery on his knee in June. In July, he told Ducks general manager Bob Murray that his recovery was on track.
Selanne, an unrestricted free agent, is still without a contract for next season and would leave the Ducks with a gaping hole at right wing if he doesn’t re-sign. Clearly, the team is counting on a full recovery and the same passion from Selanne that led to his 31-goal, 80-point season in 2010-11.
In the meantime, the waiting continues.
