AROUND THE NHL

Salei Severely Hampered by Injury

September 12, 2000|ELLIOTT TEAFORD

Three days into training camp and defenseman Ruslan Salei has yet to skate with his teammates. A strained left hip has forced him to take long, slow solo turns around the Ducks' practice rink.

"I'm skating without any speed," Salei said. "I can't stop and go. I'm just trying to stay in shape. It's day by day."

Salei is expected to be sidelined for today's scrimmage--which will be held in front of about 13,000 school children taking a field trip to the Arrowhead Pond.

An "A" team, led by goalie Guy Hebert and forwards Marty McInnis and German Titov, plays a "B" team featuring wingers Paul Kariya and Teemu Selanne.

Today's scrimmage will be the Ducks' first and last before opening an eight-game exhibition schedule Saturday against the Sharks at San Jose.

Hartsburg plans to make some roster cuts after the third of three consecutive exhibitions next Monday.
