Ducks forward Teemu Selanne will return to Orange County on Wednesday for oral surgery as a result of being struck in the upper mouth by a high stick in the team’s 3-2 victory Tuesday night in Philadelphia.
Selanne, 43, announced before the season that this one is his last.
The Ducks, in the midst of a season-long eight-game trip that stops at Boston onThursday night, have gone 3-2 while away from Honda Center, winning three straight despite a rash of injuries.
Before the team departed, forward Dustin Penner suffered a concussion in an Oct. 20 victory over Dallas and goalie Viktor Fasth suffered a lower body injury in practice Oct. 17.
