In a blockbuster move that illustrated the economic realities of the new salary-cap-driven NHL, the Mighty Ducks on Tuesday traded six-time All-Star Sergei Fedorov to the Columbus Blue Jackets for journeyman forward Tyler Wright and rookie defenseman Francois Beauchemin.

Sergei Fedorov stepped away from a demanding 75-minute workout Tuesday feeling confident that he'd be back in the Mighty Duck lineup this weekend. "Good practice," said the Ducks' top-line center, sidelined since the home opener on Oct. 10 because of a groin injury. "No complications, no nothing.

Sergei Fedorov has a strained left groin and sat out Wednesday's practice at the Arrowhead Pond, but the veteran center said he planned to skate today and be ready for Friday's home game against the Columbus Blue Jackets.

Center Sergei Fedorov had a goal and two assists in a wild 8-6 victory over the Detroit Red Wings on Sunday, then went another round of "Any Regrets?" "Why does that bother you?" a smiling Fedorov told reporters. "It does bother all you guys. I'm happy here, why do you keep asking? "Do I look unhappy? In the morning I am. It's very tough to get up with snow outside and minus-30 temperature. You can't get away from that. In my head anyway. But it's pretty easy on the body here, 65 degrees."
