Ducks' Teemu Selanne returns from broken jaw

February 1, 2010 |  5:16 pm

Selanne_300 Teemu Selanne, out of action since breaking his jaw Jan. 13 against Boston, returned to the Ducks' lineup Monday night at Florida.

Selanne, 39, has 16 goals this season but has played in only 30 games because of a broken hand and jaw. He is preparing to play in his fifth Olympics for his native Finland this month in Vancouver.

Rookie forward Matt Beleskey was sent down to minor-league affiliate Bakersfield to make room for Selanne.
