Teemu Selanne almost sat out Thursday’s game against the Dallas Stars due to flu symptoms. In hindsight, it would have been the right decision.
The Ducks’ sniper suffered a broken bone in his hand and, while he is expected to be examined by a specialist in California, the Dallas Morning News is reporting he will be sidelined for 4-6 weeks.
The injury occurred in the second period when the Ducks’ veteran took the brunt of a Karlis Skrastins shot on the hand.
He did not return for the third period.
