Paul Kariya won't be the only one missing when the Ducks play Vancouver in Japan on Friday and Saturday. Team President Tony Tavares is not making the trip. Tavares said last week that he could not be out of the country for a lengthy trip. Also staying home is assistant General Manager David McNab, who will remain in Anaheim this week to tie up loose ends before the Ducks' home opener. "There are an awful lot of league matters that need to be done before the season," McNab said.

Paul Kariya will wear the captain's "C" as soon as he joins the lineup, but defenseman Bobby Dollas will be acting captain until Kariya returns from the abdominal muscle injury that caused him to miss the exhibition season. "It's a nice honor," Kariya, 21, said. "Obviously I'm very pleased with it. I don't think it will change the way I look at things. Everybody's got to be a leader."

The Ducks said Thursday they are awaiting the results of Paul Kariya's examination by Dr. James Kelly, a Chicago neurologist regarded as a leader in the research and treatment of concussions. Kariya has been sidelined by post-concussion syndrome since he was cross-checked in the jaw Feb. 1 by Chicago defenseman Gary Suter. Kariya's return by the end of the regular season is still considered a longshot. "Paul has shown marked improvement in the last two weeks," team spokesman Rob Scichili said.

The Mighty Ducks heard what probably were the most comforting words in the language Tuesday. "I'm playing," said Paul Kariya, who will make his season debut tonight against Vancouver with a team that has gone 1-8-2 without him. Kariya, who scored 50 goals last season, hasn't played in more than five months because of an abdominal injury. Kariya will play on a line with Jari Kurri and Teemu Selanne, and the team is pinning its hopes on an offensive and emotional boost from his return.

Paul Kariya, the Mighty Ducks' leading scorer, was found to have a sprained back Monday and will likely return to practice Wednesday. He is expected to play when the Ducks face Vancouver Friday at The Pond. Team physicians Ronald Glousman and Craig Milhouse took precautionary X-rays, which were negative, and said rest was the best cure. Kariya was forced to the sidelines early in Saturday's practice, complaining of a sore back.

Mighty Duck left wing Paul Kariya, who did not accompany the Canadian Olympic team to Japan because of a concussion he suffered last week, was examined again Sunday by team doctor Craig Milhouse but he has not yet been cleared to travel. Duck spokesman Rob Scichili said Kariya continues to improve and is being allowed to increase the extent of his physical activity. Scichili said reports claiming Kariya will leave Tuesday for Japan are not correct.

Paul Kariya did not travel with the Ducks for tonight's game against the San Jose Sharks, the first on a three-game trip. Kariya, sidelined for three games because of a bruised right foot, will spend the next few days at a sports rehabilitation clinic in Newport Beach. Today, he hopes to ride a stationary bicycle. If that goes well, he expects to resume skating Wednesday and ideally could be back in the lineup Sunday against the Nashville Predators.

Team president Tony Tavares on Monday clarified the Ducks' removal of Paul Kariya-related merchandise from the Pond team store. Tavares said the merchandise was pulled from the team store during the exhibition season to make room for new items. He said the merchandise was back on the shelves in time for Friday's home-opening game against the Ottawa Senators. A quick check of the team store Monday showed several action photos of Kariya and one style of a T-shirt with his likeness on it for sale.
