After only two games with the Mighty Ducks, defenseman Sean O'Donnell and winger Jeff Friesen are drawing positive reviews from their teammates. "O'Donnell's tough, and Friesen's got some speed and skill," Joffrey Lupul said after the Ducks defeated the Phoenix Coyotes, 5-2, Sunday. Rob Niedermayer, who fed a perfect pass to Friesen for a goal, said, "Friesen is great in the slot. He usually buries it." Added Coach Randy Carlyle, "That's the type of goal Friesen can score."

Jeff Friesen is back although, in a way, he never really left. The speedy left wing makes his debut tonight against the Phoenix Coyotes in his second tour with the Mighty Ducks, hoping he will fare better this time around. In 2001, the San Jose Sharks traded Friesen and goalie Steve Shields to Anaheim for Teemu Selanne. Perhaps viewed as the player who replaced the popular Selanne, Friesen clashed with then-coach Bryan Murray and had just 17 goals in 2001-02 while alienating Duck fans.

Jeff Friesen goes home Thursday night, wearing a Mighty Duck jersey. For seven years, since he was a teenager, Friesen played for the San Jose Sharks. He more or less grew up there. Now he returns as the enemy, when the Ducks play the Sharks at the San Jose Arena. This will be the first meeting of the teams since the March 5 trade that sent Teemu Selanne to San Jose for Friesen, goalie Steve Shields and a conditional draft pick.

The Mighty Ducks signed left wing Jeff Friesen, the key player in last season's Teemu Selanne deal, on Thursday, avoiding a holdout. Friesen, who was acquired from the San Jose Sharks March 5, agreed to a two-year deal worth $5.5 million, plus incentive clauses on scoring. He will fill Selanne's spot on the Ducks' top line with Paul Kariya and Steve Rucchin. His last two contract negotiations had been difficult. Friesen missed three games in 1997-98 and two in 1998-99.

Comparing one of the biggest trades in Mighty Duck history will be easy tonight, as the key players will be on display when the Ducks play New Jersey at the Continental Airlines Arena. Last summer, the six-player deal brought right wing Petr Sykora to the Ducks for left wing Jeff Friesen and defenseman Oleg Tverdovsky. Both were unhappy in Anaheim and the Ducks seem better off without them. Still, playing his former team is plenty of incentive for Friesen.

Rumored for more than a year, the Teemu Selanne trade finally came to pass in the wee hours Monday morning. The Mighty Ducks sent the all-star right wing to the San Jose Sharks for left wing Jeff Friesen, backup goaltender Steve Shields and future considerations. The Ducks also put goalie Guy Hebert on nonroster waivers in hopes of dealing him before next Tuesday's trade deadline. It's believed that the Colorado Avalanche and the New York Rangers have contacted the Ducks about trading for him.

Jeff Friesen has been a streaky goal scorer since coming to the New Jersey Devils, and it appears he's on another run. After going 10 games without a goal, Friesen scored his third in four games early in the third period to lead the Devils to a 3-2 victory over the Atlanta Thrashers on Sunday night at East Rutherford, N.J. "Sometimes you get in slumps and, for whatever reason, guys don't get on the same page," Friesen said.

In less than a week, New Jersey winger Jeff Friesen has gone from Mr. Automatic to Mr. No-Show and he can blame his former Duck teammates. In Games 1 and 2 at the Meadowlands, the Ducks gave Friesen way too much respect and he took advantage with three goals, leading the Devils to a 2-0 lead in the best-of-seven series.

Jeff Friesen actually cracked a smile the other day. He also marveled at the skill and determination of his new teammates. And he used their nicknames as if he had been playing with them for several seasons instead of several weeks. Slowly, but certainly, the shock of his March 5 trade from the playoff-contending San Jose Sharks to the last-place Mighty Ducks is fading for Friesen.

The fallout continues . . . Right wing Teemu Selanne underwent arthroscopic surgery on his left knee Tuesday and isn't expected to make his debut as a San Jose Shark for at least two weeks. Goaltender Steve Shields will undergo arthroscopic surgery on his left shoulder later this week and isn't expected to make his Duck debut until next season. Left wing Jeff Friesen will don a No.

Teemu Selanne, classy to the last, scrawled a few parting words for the Mighty Ducks on a chalkboard in the Arrowhead Pond dressing room. "Thanks for everything guys! "Best of luck! "Your friend, Teemu. "P.S. 'Vish' [defenseman Vitaly Vishnevski] don't hit me please." In their first game since Monday's blockbuster trade that sent Selanne to the San Jose Sharks, the Ducks displayed some flash with the puck in a 4-2 victory Wednesday over the Montreal Canadiens that would have made their friend proud.
