Duck Coach Craig Hartsburg, at the season's midpoint, acknowledged he has had quite a few pleasant surprises. "Paul? Teemu?" he said, only half-joking about the first-half exploits of all-star wingers Paul Kariya and Teemu Selanne, who went into Wednesday's game first and seventh in NHL scoring. "Coming into training camp, I didn't know Johan Davidsson, I didn't know Antti Aalto and I saw Matt Cullen only at the end of last season," Hartsburg said in a more serious tone.

Four years after drafting him, the Mighty Ducks finally signed Swedish center Johan Davidsson on Monday. "One-hundred and one phone calls later . . . " said David McNab, Duck assistant general manager, of at last completing a two-year contract with Davidsson. "The way I look at it, it really was the right time to get it done." The Ducks drafted Davidsson in the second round of the 1994 draft, then waited impatiently while he played four seasons in leagues in Finland and Sweden.

It's called lunch bucket hockey. Sure, it's far from an electrifying style of play, but the Mighty Ducks are getting pretty good at it. Certainly, the Ducks were far more accomplished than the slumping Kings in grinding out a 3-1 victory Monday night at the Arrowhead Pond. The Ducks' style of play didn't look particularly inviting to the 16,067 fans, but all those tough checks along the boards and in front of the net paid off for the second consecutive game.

This was the week the Ducks learned what they have been missing all these years. The Ducks drafted Swedish center Johan Davidsson in 1994, but he kept them waiting and wondering when he would sign an NHL contract. Davidsson finally signed on the dotted line this summer, and judging by the reviews, the Ducks couldn't be happier. They rewarded Davidsson, 22, with a spot on their top line for Saturday's exhibition opener against the Phoenix Coyotes at the Arrowhead Pond.

The Mighty Ducks made the following moves to cut their roster to 40: Defensemen Byron Briske, Brian Corcoran, Alain Deeks and Bobby Marshall were assigned to the Baltimore Bandits. Defenseman Keith Aldridge and centers Mike Hall and Chris Pittman, who had tryouts with the Ducks, were invited to the Bandit camp. Returned to junior teams were centers Marc Chouinard and Johan Davidsson, defenseman Kevin Kellett and goalie Blaine Russell.

Center Josef Marha was not in the lineup for the third consecutive game Wednesday against the Vancouver Canucks. He's neither injured nor playing poorly, according to Duck Coach Craig Hartsburg. There's simply a numbers problem for the Ducks at center ice. There's too much depth and Marha was the odd man out again Wednesday. "The guys ahead of him have played better," Hartsburg said. "That's the deal." Matt Cullen had a goal and two assists in three games before Wednesday.

The Ducks' poor defensive play was the main topic of discussion for the second consecutive day. But Coach Craig Hartsburg was careful Monday not to pin the blame solely on his defensemen. "It starts with our goaltending, then moves out to the defensemen and the forwards," Hartsburg said. "We go in spurts. We play well, then we have a five-minute stretch where we get away from it."

The Ducks complete a stretch of four exhibitions in five nights by playing host the Colorado Avalanche tonight at 7 at the Arrowhead Pond. "We'll have another totally different lineup," Coach Craig Hartsburg said. "These four games are a chance to look at a lot of different players. Obviously, we're not going to wear out our top players. Probably in the last two or three games we'll play pretty close to our regular lineup."

The kids certainly were better than all right when the Mighty Ducks' season took a turn for the worse after the Olympic break last February. Of course, the pressure was off by then and Duck management decided to play out the string with a youthful lineup that included centers Matt Cullen and Josef Marha, right wings Frank Banham and Jeff Nielsen, left wings Jeremy Stevenson and Mike Leclerc and defenseman Pavel Trnka.

Moe Mantha's "Rink Rats" are in for a surprise this week. The Cincinnati Mighty Ducks will be practicing--trading checks, maybe a few shoves--and working up a good sweat. Then there will be cake. "We always bring in a cake for a guy when it's his birthday," said Mantha, the Ducks' coach. "We try to make it a family atmosphere around here. We have another one coming up, I just can't remember whose dang birthday it is. One of the young Russians, I think."
