Teemu Selanne cut himself in the left leg by his right skate. Just typing that makes me quiver. He did this in early during the Edmonton game on 12-18-08. Teemu is out 4-6 weeks because of the laceration.
Good ol’ Selanne was my sleeper pick in every fantasy league I was in. I was able to pick him up around the tenth round. He was also leading the league with 14 Powerplay goals.
This is from the Anaheim Ducks:
In response to the injury to winger Teemu Selanne in the opening minutes of Friday night’s 3-2 shootout win at Edmonton, the Ducks have recalled center Andrew Ebbett from the Iowa Chops, Anaheim’s primary development affiliate in the American Hockey League (AHL).
Selanne suffered a laceration on his lower left thigh when his own right skate sliced his left leg during a collision along the boards with Oilers defenseman Denis Grebeshkov.
“I knew right away that I got cut,” said Selanne, who left the locker room on crutches. “It was scary how much blood was coming out. It was all over. You couldn’t even stop it.”
