Selanne Trying To Put The Power Back In His Play

from Curtis Zupke at Ducks Blog,

Teemu Selanne has had enough injuries in his career that he knows it takes time to re-gain what has been lost.

In his case, he is trying to build up his quadiceps muscle after he missed five weeks with a laceration to the leg.

“Obviously the strength is not back,” Selanne said. “It’s funny how much muscle you lose when you don’t use it in 2-3 weeks.”

Selanne has played six games since his return from the injury and has yet to score a power play goal. He had an NHL-leading 13 power play goals in his first 27 games but has none in his past 12.

His drought is a microcosm of the Ducks, who are 0-for-9 on the power play over their past three games - the first time they have gone three games without a power play goal since an 0-11 span in mid-December.
