VIDEO: Ducks’ Teemu Selanne to Miss 2 Weeks After High Stick

The Anaheim Ducks are going to be without winger Teemu Selanne for two weeks as he undergoes oral surgery, stemming from an injury suffered in Tuesday night’s 3-2 victory over the Philadelphia Flyers.

The 43-year-old took a high stick to the mouth by defenseman Luke Schenn and lost several teeth and suffered a cut that required 40 stitches to seal. Schenn was not called for a penalty.

He will miss the Ducks’ eight-game road trip to Boston, Buffalo and New York, stops that would have been the final of his career.

It adds to the team’s injury woes as it is also without Jakob Silfverburg (hand) and Dustin Penner (concussion).
