Selanne suffered a laceration on his lower left thigh when a collision with Oilers defenseman Denis Grebeshkov resulted in Selanne getting twisted to the point that his right skate sliced his opposite leg.
“I knew right away that I got cut,” Selanne said before leaving the locker room with the aid of crutches. “It was scary how much blood was coming out. It was all over. You couldn’t even stop it.”
A doctor on scene halted the bleeding and stabilized Selanne’s leg but chose not to investigate the extent of the damage for fear of adding to it, Selanne said. The Ducks planned to take Selanne on a Friday night flight to Vancouver, and then send him to Anaheim on Saturday to undergo an MRI exam with their own medical personnel.
“The MRI is going to tell exactly if it’s surgery or not,” Selanne said. “It’s just bad luck, but it could be worse. There’s a bright side. That’s how I’m going to look at it.”
At first, the Ducks broadcast team did not know wear Selanne was cut, but about half way through the video, they realized it was his own skate that did the damage, Just a freaky accident and watch below…
