Unlike years past, Antti Niemi is no longer the clear-cut No. 1 goaltender for the San Jose Sharks.

Ducks open camp dealing with book by Selanne

Thursday, 09.18.2014 / 8:13 PM / News

Curtis Zupke - NHL.com Correspondent

ANAHEIM, Calif. -- Teemu Selanne played his last game for the Anaheim Ducks last season, but he was the main topic of conversation when the Ducks reported for training camp Thursday.

Anaheim general manager Bob Murray and coach Bruce Boudreau spent the first portions of their media sessions defusing some pointed criticism that reportedly surfaced in Selanne's book regarding the forward's playing time.

Boudreau, Murray and captain Ryan Getzlaf chalked it up to Selanne's frustration at the end of his two-decade career at 43.

"Nobody likes hearing anything negative about themselves in anything," Boudreau said. "So in that sense I was a little disappointed. But I understand the frustration. You have to understand when he said those things it was right after Game 7 (of the Western Conference Second Round Series loss to the Los Angeles Kings). I can see the frustration was [with] everybody.

"When you're a great player your whole life, you want him to want more and to be the best guy and everything else. I understand where he comes from. I didn't like to hear that in a book, but I understand and I'm sure it was in frustration."

Crosby, Malkin to miss start of Penguins training camp

Wes Crosby - NHL.com Correspondent

PITTSBURGH -- Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin will be held out of the start of training camp after sustaining unspecified injuries, the Pittsburgh Penguins announced Thursday.

The Penguins' top two centers sustained injuries in preparation for camp, Pittsburgh general manager Jim Rutherford announced in a press release. Penguins coach Mike Johnston did not go into detail on either injury, except stating that neither is expected to be long-term and that Crosby's is not related to the wrist injury he played through late last season and into the Stanley Cup Playoffs.

"We'll see over the next few days. I don't expect any of them to be long [absences]," Johnston said. "But when the trainers and the doctors inform us at this time of the year that we better be cautious with a few people, then we're going to be cautious."

Quote of the Day

I downplayed the first one because I thought it's just a hockey game. We just want to win the game; it's against our rival and we want the two points. I downplayed it, but now having gone through the first one I look back and say, 'Geez, that was really cool.' I think as I've grown a bit older I've got a lot more appreciation for what we're allowed to do every day.
