Found October 24, 2013 on The Other Paper:
PLAYERS: Teemu Selanne
TEAMS: Anaheim Ducks

I'm not really a fan of dudes getting tattooed with images of other dudes — even if they are your sports idol or Yosemite Sam — but this tattoo of NHL star  Teemu Selanne is pretty awesome. And it just got more awesome. One guy in Montreal decided to get Selanne tattooed onto his arm with the Anaheim Ducks logo by the side and — with the Ducks in Montreal for a game on Thursday night — he had the chance to show Selanne his permanent portrait. Not only did the gracious  Selanne see it, but he signed the guy's arm right below the tattoo. You can bet this fan found the nearest tattoo parlor and the signature inked in before it faded. Really nice. This guy in Montreal has tattoo of Selanne and he autographed it today And his fan will tattoo it also today pic.twitter.com/sVVVeJeTjB — Zdenek Matejovsky (@zedmat) October 24, 2013

The Evolution of Ryan Getzlaf’s hairline & the 5 best bald NHLers

As a fellow baldy, I can relate to Ryan Getzlaf on one thing. The Ducks’ centre, all-star, and captain is losing his hair in his twenties. I know the feeling. But it’s not all bad, being bald. Actually, you get…Read more →The post The Evolution of Ryan Getzlaf’s hairline & the 5 best bald NHLers appeared first on The Hockey Daily.

Longer Suspensions Needed?

from Roy MacGregor of the Globe and Mail, Anaheim Ducks winger Teemu Selanne, the NHL’s elder statesman at 43 and perhaps the most widely respected player in today’s game, said in Montreal the suspensions handed out to the likes of Kaleta are inadequate. “I don’t think they’re enough,” Selanne told reporters. “The next night, the same thing happens.” ...

Getzlaf, Maroon & Perry Lead Ducks to 2-1 Win Over Sens

The Ducks got their first points on this long road trip, thanks to a stellar performance from the top line and some solid goaltending in Frederik Andersen's first NHL start. The first line tonight was everything that it hadn't been in the previous two games and playing the role of Dustin Penner tonight was Patrick Maroon, who had a heck of a first period. The first time...

Andersen, Ducks hold off Senators

Ryan Getzlaf scored the winner, Frederik Andersen made 26 saves and the Anaheim Ducks earned the first victory of their eight-game road trip, a 2-1 win over the Ottawa Senators on Friday night. Patrick Maroon also scored for the Ducks on the third game of their trip. Mika Zibanejad had the Senators' goal and Craig Anderson stopped 26 shots. Anaheim was coming off a 4-1 loss...

Versatile forward Silfverberg settling in with Ducks

Jakob Silfverberg got a call from Rome shortly after he learned he had become a member of the Anaheim Ducks as part of the trade that saw the Ottawa Senators acquire Bobby Ryan. It came from All-Star defenseman and now-former teammate Erik Karlsson, who himself was just coming to terms with the news. "He was obviously very shocked at the moment, and so was I," said Karlsson...

Anderson leads Ducks past Senators, 2-1

OTTAWA, Ontario (AP) -- Ryan Getzlaf scored the winner, Frederik Andersen made 26 saves and the Anaheim Ducks earned the first victory of their eight-game road trip, a 2-1 win over the Ottawa Senators on Friday night. Patrick Maroon also scored for the Ducks on the third game of their trip. Mika Zibanejad had the Senators' goal and Craig Anderson stopped 26 shots. Anaheim...

Ducks-Senators Preview

The Anaheim Ducks have cooled off in Canada. Visiting the nation's capital could get them untracked. The Ducks attempt to avoid a third straight loss at the beginning of their longest road trip of the season when they face the Ottawa Senators again Friday night. Anaheim (7-3-0) entered this eight-game trip having tied a franchise record with seven straight victories. It didn...

Canadiens beat Ducks to snap two-game skid

Saku Koivu doesn't want to think about the possibility his team's visit to Bell Centre on Thursday may have been his last. But if it was it was a great way for the former Montreal Canadiens captain to go out. Koivu's Anaheim Ducks weren't able to get him a win Thursday as Tomas Plekanec had a goal and two assists and Carey Price made 31 saves to lead the Canadiens...

Kessel Kills Ducks Streak

All good things must come to an end and that includes a franchise record seven game winning streak for the Ducks. On Tuesday, the Toronto Maple Leafs got a decisive 4-2 victory over Anaheim, including a hat trick from Phil Kessel.    And things started off so nicely, too.  Patrick Maroon, who was back in the line up after Dustin Penner suffered a nasty hit to the head...

Ducks-Canadiens Preview

The Anaheim Ducks and Montreal Canadiens would both like to forget about Tuesday night. After both teams blew 2-0 leads in their latest losses, they'll try to bounce back Thursday night in Montreal. The Ducks (7-2-0) won seven in a row before Tuesday's 4-2 loss at Toronto. The streak would still be alive had Anaheim been able to hold a lead after Nick Bonino and Mathieu...

Montreal Bests Ducks 4-1

So far not so good on this eight game road trip.  Two games down, two losses in a row.  First a 4-2 loss to Toronto and then a 4-1 loss to Montreal.   Ouch.  This was a team who put together seven wins in a row to tie a franchise record and now they cannot find the net.  Having the power play elude them is not helping either. "We didn’t play fast, and we didn’t...
