Andrew Ebbett left the arena tonight in a neck brace because of neck, back and shoulder spasms after T.J. Oshie, who scored the lone goal 26 seconds into the third, executed a textbook slewfoot. Referees Kevin Pollock and Ian Walsh didn’t think so. If they did, Oshie would have gotten a match penalty and the Wild a five-minute power play in a 1-0 deficit.
One of the most dangerous hits I’ve seen. Oshie grabbed across Ebbett’s chest, swept his legs out from under him and Ebbett’s head slammed against the ice while he crashed into the boards. Ebbett tried to soften the blow with his shoulders and back, he said, which is why he thinks he’s paying the price now. Better than head smacking directly against the ice, however.

from Kevin Mitchell of the Vernon Morning Star,
Flip-flops, T-shirt and shorts is the season-long regular practice-day attire for the Anaheim Mighty Ducks.
After four years in much colder Michigan, and two seasons in the just-as-cold minors, Vernon’s Andrew Ebbett soaked up the sun in 48 games with Anaheim last year. Even got a regular shift in 13 playoff games.
Now, he wants a steady diet of Southern California hockey.
“I have a year left on my contract so hopefully we can get a long-term deal done in October and November,” said Ebbett…
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.”
