Selanne sits out for Ducks against Senators

OTTAWA -- Teemu Selanne was a scratch for the Anaheim Ducks' game against the Ottawa Senators at Canadian Tire Centre on Friday.

Selanne, who played in Anaheim's 4-1 loss at the Montreal Canadiens on Thursday, is not expected to play games on consecutive days this season. He is four games shy of his 1,400th regular-season NHL game.

Ducks goalie Frederik Andersen made his first career start. He made his NHL debut Sunday with a win in relief of Jonas Hiller.

Quote of the Day

[He's] real confident with the puck now, getting it off his stick quick and no second-guessing. We need that. He's such a good guy in the room. He works so hard. That's the big thing. For not a big man, he just fights for every puck and when he scores, the guys appreciate that even more.
