SOCHI -- Finland forward Teemu Selanne missed the final two periods of an 8-4 win against Austria in Group B play Thursday afternoon at Bolshoy Ice Dome.
Selanne appeared to injure his neck, but the team termed it an upper-body injury.
Finland coach Erkka Westerlund said he expects Selanne to be available Friday when the Finns play Norway (Noon ET, MSNBC, SNET).
“It’s a small upper-body injury,” Westerlund said. “It’s not serious.”
