There are dog days and then there are dog days. Professional hockey players are used to having their faces split by fists, their bones broken and teeth knocked out with sticks, their flesh slashed open with cold steel.

Shawn Antoski's eight-year career in the NHL has been littered with stretched knee ligaments, separated shoulders, broken knuckles, strained hips and even hernia surgery.

Shawn Antoski seemed uncertain about what to say at first, so he cracked a joke at his own expense Friday morning. "Did anybody find a lung out there?" he asked, breaking into a wide smile after his first workout with Mighty Duck teammates since the Nov. 24 car accident that almost took his life. It didn't take long for him to stop pretending to be short of breath and to adopt a more serious tone, however.

Colorado, Calgary, Vancouver. That's the answer to the question, "Who are the only teams to beat the Mighty Ducks since the Kings' 3-1 victory on Feb. 20?" The Ducks are 11-3-7 since a loss they've called a wake-up call and a slap in the face. "We've lost three games in 21," Duck Coach Ron Wilson said. "If we go on a roll like that [in the playoffs] we'll win the Stanley Cup." Except, of course, there are no ties in the playoffs.

Determined to avoid surgery as long as he can, tough guy Shawn Antoski is back in the lineup despite a painful hip injury. "There's no secret I'm still sore," he said the day after playing for the first time in 20 games. "Everybody knows. Everybody asks. Doctors, trainers, coaches. At this point, it's not like I'm going to be able to hide it. "I hear so many opinions [about surgery]. Do it, don't do it," Antoski said. "But I can't come to grips with sitting out the rest of the year."

Tough guy Shawn Antoski is hoping he'll be able to play if the Ducks make the playoffs. Antoski skated Wednesday for the first time since undergoing abdominal surgery Feb. 4. He played in only two games before being injured after arriving in a trade from Pittsburgh. "I just skated and shot pucks, nothing major. It felt pretty good," Antoski said. "I'm looking at the playoff picture. I'm still focused on that. It's my goal, but I'm realistic. I could be out for the season."

After visiting Dr. William Garrett of Duke University earlier this week, enforcer Shawn Antoski has decided to undergo groin surgery. The only question is when and who will perform the procedure. "It's kind of tough because this could have been diagnosed two months ago, but there's no tests [to determine what's wrong]," said Antoski, who suffered what is called a "sports hernia" in a Nov. 20 game against the New York Islanders and has played only once since.

Tough guy Shawn Antoski remains a big part of the Ducks' plans this season. He is 6 feet 4, 235 pounds, a strong skater and a bit mean, but Coach Pierre Page expects more offense from the former first-round draft pick of the Vancouver Canucks. Antoski combined skill and physical play to record 25 goals, 56 points and 201 penalty minutes in his final season with North Bay of the junior-level Ontario Hockey League.
