Bruce Boudreau when asked about Sami Vatanen’s Corsi rating...

“I don’t know, I’ve never looked at a Corsi number so that tells you my answer. I don’t pay any attention to any of that.

Corey Perry Returned To Practice Today After Having A Case Of The Mumps

from Kyle Shohara of AnaheimDucks.com,

“I had the swollen jaw and the swelling in my face that led to headaches,” said Perry. “I had the body aches and fever, too. Those things weren’t fun.”

Perry admits he didn’t really know what the mumps were when the doctor told him the news, but knew he had to let the virus run its course. “I’ve learned more in the last week about it, but there’s really no medicine for it,” he said. “Sometimes the booster helps and sometimes it doesn’t, and vaccinations don’t always work. I had my shots as a kid.”

Along with swelling in the face and headaches, Perry says he ran a fever north of 100 degrees (102 at its highest) and experienced hot and cold sweats, but never experienced a loss of appetite. But during his stint in the hospital (three days and two nights), Perry says he didn’t do much.

“I had no energy to do anything,” he said. “My day consisted of the doctor coming in at seven o’clock in the morning, looking at me and then taking off, me going back to sleep, and then the doctor coming back in to draw blood.”

Although he didn’t rule out the weekend games on Saturday at Los Angeles and Sunday at Honda Center against Florida, Perry says he’ll need to regain strength before he returns to the lineup. “It’s going to take some time,” he said. “The body is a little weak. Hopefully I can do all the right steps to get ready. It’s mostly the lungs. Being weak is the most noticeable thing.”

It’s A Case Of The Mumps For Corey Perry And Francois Beauchemin

via Curtis Zupke at NHL.com,

Anaheim Ducks right wing Corey Perry has been cleared from a case of mumps but defenseman Francois Beauchemin still has the infection, Dr. Craig Milhouse, the Ducks' physician, said Wednesday.

Both players have been quarantined while their cases were diagnosed. Perry is no longer contagious and is expected to rejoin the Ducks soon. Beauchemin remains in a hospital getting intravenous fluids, a Ducks official said.

"He's better today, and we anticipate that he'll be even more improved [Thursday], after he gets IV fluids," Milhouse said.

The Ducks will have the rest of the players vaccinated, Milhouse said.

Milhouse said it is not known how the two got the infection but there have been cases of mumps in the Anaheim area and that the health department is involved.

Ryan Kesler Enjoying His Time In Anaheim

from Pierre LeBrun of ESPN,

Kesler looks around him and sees a team that’s going to contend for years to come.

"The most exciting part about it is just how young the team is, we've got a lot of cap room to use, I like the way our team is set up," he said. "We've got guys with experience who settle down the younger guys. I just like the makeup of our team."

The 30-year-old Michigan native has another year left on his deal after this season, and in a perfect world his stay in Anaheim with his wife and three young kids will last much longer than that. An extension would probably appeal to him when the time is right.

"The way the team is made up, how young and how good a contender this team is, yeah, I love it here," Kesler said. "That would be the perfect situation, yes."

more on Kesler as the Ducks prepare to play the Kings tonight.  

Darryl Sutter mentioned post-practice today that some of the Kings are now ill but no excuses.

All Ryan Kesler Before The Ducks Play The Canucks Tonight In Anaheim

from Dan Murphy of Sportsnet,

Sportsnet had a chance to sit down Ryan Kesler at the Ducks practice facility in Anaheim on Saturday morning to talk about the upcoming game against his former team. You can certainly tell Kesler is certainly happy in Orange County. Here are some excerpts from the interview

On why he thinks it was the right time to move on

Talking with my agent and Jim [Benning] and Trevor [Linden] I just came to the understanding that it was time to go. Other than that I think it’s a private conversation for details and stuff like that. I was stuck in a rut and 11 years in a city is a long time. If you asked me I thought I would retire as a Canuck and obviously that didn’t happen and a new chapter is starting and I’m excited for this opportunity.

On the move to Anaheim

It’s a new chapter. I’m extremely excited about it. But saying that you miss your teammates, your old teammates and friends. Kevin [Bieksa], Alex [Burrows], and the Sedins. You play with them for 11 years and you grow bonds with them and that’s probably the biggest thing I’m going to miss. This chapter I’m growing new bonds with my teammates and we’re a pretty good team so it’s pretty exciting to come to the rink everyday and succeed.
