Ducks… An outfit once owned and operated by some Mickey Mouse operation. Sound familiar? The Ducks have lost Getzlaf with the same ankle issue that nearly clipped his wings for an Olympic appearance and James ‘Forearm Shiver’ Wisniewski is still suspended. Down, but not out, yet with only 9 games remaining and trailing 8th by 11 points the Ducks will be dusting off the golf clubs around the same time as the boys in blue. This will be the first meeting between the two clubs since the swapping of Lubo for Whitney, and with the Oil on a 3 game tear and not a care in the world, I’m pretty sure we can run our win streak up to 4 against the Mighty Quacks. Patty O has been cleared to play and Gagner left practice early, so maybe they’ll trade spots tonight. As for Petry making an appearance tonight, no word yet.

As per the Oil’s official e-mail:
General Manager Steve Tambellini announced today the Edmonton Oilers have signed Jeff Petry to a two-year NHL entry level contract.
Petry, the Oilers 1st choice, 45th overall, in the 2006 NHL Entry Draft, recently completed his third season with Michigan State University of the CCHA.
I’m going to assume that this means we may see him in Oilers silks as soon as tonight! But I’m not sure if that is the case. This has been rumored for a bit though, that we’d see him play either in Springfield or with Edmonton after MSU’s season was done.
