PRO HOCKEY DAILY REPORT : MIGHTY DUCKS

Hebert Still No. 1 Despite Bad Start

October 15, 1996|CHRIS FOSTER

Guy Hebert, besieged at times during the season opening trip, remains the Mighty Ducks' No. 1 goaltender, Coach Ron Wilson said. But Wilson said he has not decided who will start Wednesday's home opener against the Philadelphia Flyers.

Hebert has given up more than five goals a game and his save percentage is down. Meanwhile, Mikhail Shtalenkov has performed well in his two starts, one a shutout against the Chicago Blackhawks.

The Ducks have hired Francois Allaire to work with the goaltenders. He spent 12 seasons in the Montreal Canadiens' organization, the last eight as a coach.

Wilson called the 1-2-2 trip a success.

"We got four points out of 10," he said. "We identified some of the areas we need to work on. They are mistakes that have happened in games. We can address them."

Center Joe Day was reassigned to the Baltimore Bandits. Day had not played this season.
