Ducks’ Selanne has hand surgery

Anaheim Ducks winger Teemu Selanne had surgery Thursday to repair a broken bone in his left hand and is expected to miss four to six weeks.

Dr. Steve Shin performed the surgery at the Kerlan-Jobe Surgery Center.

Selanne was injured Thursday night in a loss to Dallas when he was struck by Stars defenseman Karlis Skrastins‘ shot. X-rays revealed a fracture in the area of the knuckle above Selanne’s middle finger.

The 39-year-old Finnish star has 14 goals and seven assists in 27 games this season. He has 593 goals and 640 assists in 1,159 career regular-season games.
