Ebbett Talks About The Phaneuf Hit

from Dan Wood of Ducks Blog at the OC Register,

After taking part in a loose practice session during the club’s annual “First Flight” field trip for elementary-school students Thursday at Honda Center, Ducks rookie center Andrew Ebbett talked about the hit to the head he took from Calgary Flames defenseman Dion Phaneuf the night before.

Sporting a broken nose, courtesy of the shot delivered by Phaneuf late in the second period of the Ducks’ 3-2, overtime victory, Ebbett considered himself fortunate he didn’t incur further damage.

“It doesn’t feel that good this morning,” Ebbett said. “Luckily, it didn’t give me a concussion or anything — I hope. The nose is just kind of throbbing.”

Ebbett related his recollection of the play near the Calgary blue line.

“I saw him coming, dumped it (the puck) by him,” Ebbett said. “I thought I had the inside track on him, to get on the inside. The last thing I saw was his arm kind of coming up. Watching the replay, it looks more like an elbow than a shoulder to me.”

continued and the only video of the hit I could find can be seen below…
