Only two games after patching up their defense by trading for veteran J.J. Daigneault, the Mighty Ducks are back where they started after Daigneault was hit with a 10-game NHL suspension Wednesday for "abuse of an official" for hitting referee Don Koharski with his stick Sunday against Vancouver. The length of the suspension is a blow to the Ducks, who are fighting for a playoff spot with 20 games left. "Although the initial slash by Mr.

The Mighty Ducks failed to pry Trevor Linden from the Vancouver Canucks, but they said Friday they got the center they coveted by acquiring Travis Green from the New York Islanders. But the Ducks also lost experience, toughness and a bit of history when they traded defenseman J.J. Daigneault, center Mark Janssens and left wing Joe Sacco to the Islanders for Green, defenseman Doug Houda and minor-league right wing Tony Tuzzolino.

J.J. Daigneault got word around 2:30 p.m. Friday, packed and caught a 5:30 flight to Los Angeles, landed around 1 a.m., checked into a hotel and fell fast asleep. He was awake Saturday by 8 a.m., ironed a shirt and a pair of slacks and headed to the Pond for his first game as a Mighty Duck. Several of his new teammates seemed surprised to see Daigneault so soon after the trade that brought him to Anaheim. "Well, you have a game to win today, don't you?"

Only two games after patching their defense by trading for veteran J.J. Daigneault, the Mighty Ducks are back where they started after Daigneault was suspended 10 games by the NHL Wednesday for "abuse of an official" when he hit referee Don Koharski with his stick Sunday against Vancouver. "It's just very disappointing for me. I just got here and I wanted to help the team so much and contribute," Daigneault said. "I don't think I had any intent to strike the official. . . .

J.J. Daigneault has ridden in a Stanley Cup parade in his native Montreal, and he once was able to postpone the celebration of yet another championship by the Edmonton Oilers by scoring an unlikely goal in the Stanley Cup finals when he was a Philadelphia Flyer.

Trade talk was still quiet with Tuesday's deadline closing in, but the Ducks will have an addition to their lineup Friday no matter what. Defenseman J.J. Daigneault has served nine games of his 10-game NHL suspension and will be eligible to return against the Colorado Avalanche in Denver after sitting out Wednesday's game against the Kings. "It will be almost like a trade," Coach Ron Wilson said. "J.J.

Commissioner Gary Bettman upheld the 10-game suspension of defenseman J.J. Daigneault for abuse of official, but the justification for Bettman's decision won't be announced until today. "I'm a little bit frustrated, but I knew I wouldn't win it," said Daigneault, who already has served three games for hitting referee Don Koharski with his stick Feb. 23 against Vancouver.

It's not often a team on a 12-game unbeaten streak shakes up its lineup, but the Ducks will make an exception for veteran defenseman J.J. Daigneault, who has completed his 10-game NHL suspension and will play tonight against Colorado. "We'd better not lose. There will be only one person to blame--him," defenseman Bobby Dollas teased. "I'll survive. I'll be OK," Daigneault said. "But that's a good test for me. I'm going to have to be ready."

The Mighty Ducks agreed to terms with defenseman J.J. Daigneault on Thursday, in what was the first major move to solidify a team that reached the second round of the Stanley Cup playoffs last season. Daigneault, an unrestricted free agent, agreed to a three-year deal for less than $1 million per year, the team said. Daigneault was acquired from Pittsburgh for left wing Garry Valk in February.

Since returning from his 10-game suspension, J.J. Daigneault had at least one point in every game until Wednesday, with two goals and nine points over seven games. That seven-game point streak is the longest by a defenseman in team history. It was only coincidence that referee Don Koharski called Wednesday's game against the Sharks, his first assignment on a Duck game since Feb. 23, when Daigneault was thrown out of the game for swinging his stick at Koharski.

NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman issued a nine-page opinion Thursday in support of his decision to uphold Mighty Duck defenseman J.J. Daigneault's 10-game suspension for "abuse of official." Bettman called the decision "difficult" but sided strongly with referee Don Koharski, saying he would not overrule an official unless there was "clear and convincing evidence he was wrong and the call could not reasonably have been made."
