Anaheim Ducks News for Wednesday

I was going to wait until tomorrow, but the news on Pahlsson cannot wait until tomorrow.  I will post the rest of the news as well.

Pahlsson out for a few games plus other notes via the OC Register

The Ducks will be without their top defensive forward and best faceoff man for their three-game road trip.

Samuel Pahlsson will stay behind to rehabilitate an abdominal injury while the team plays Edmonton, Calgary and Vancouver in the next four days, Coach Randy Carlyle said.

Carlyle said it was a nagging injury. He had been giving Pahlsson periodic days off from practice and decided to use the Christmas break so Pahlsson can get an extended rest.

"We feel at this time it's best give him three games, 10 days off so he can build that area," Carlyle said.

Misc. Notes

Brian Sutherby (groin) practiced for the first time in two weeks, although he didn't finish because of a broken skate blade. Sutherby will make the trip and said Saturday is a possibility for his availability. … Weight spent the break with his family in St. Louis and will join the club in Edmonton, Carlyle said.

LA Times Coverage

As one key member of the Ducks' penalty-killing unit begins his first extended trip of the season, another is staying home.
Center Samuel Pahlsson, who emerged as a defensive star during Anaheim's run to the Stanley Cup title last spring, will not make the three-game Canadian swing that begins tonight at Edmonton because of an abdominal strain, Coach Randy Carlyle said after practice Wednesday.
"It's just something that has been bothering him periodically," said Carlyle, who made the decision Tuesday. "It's best to give him pretty close until the new year."

Teemu Selanne enjoyed 2007

Teemu Selanne savoured every second of it.

Hockey's pinnacle moment in 2007, the awarding of the Stanley Cup, was as sweet as can be for the 36-year-old Finn, who finally won the NHL's biggest prize in his 15th season.

"What an unbelievable feeling," Selanne said after his Anaheim Ducks won the Cup. "I've been waiting a long time.

"There were some times when I never thought this would happen."
