The Sabres and their fans will miss the farewell tour of one of the top scorers in NHL history.
Teemu Selanne needs oral surgery after taking a high-stick in the mouth Tuesday night, and Anaheim said the forward will miss two weeks. The Sabres host the Ducks on Saturday and visit Anaheim on Nov. 8.
The 43-year-old announced over the summer he was coming back for one final season. He has three goals and seven points in 10 games while playing his 22nd NHL season.
Selanne has been a star since Day One, bursting into the league with 76 goals in his rookie year of 1992-93 -- a goal total that tied Buffalo's Alexander Mogilny for tops in the NHL that year. Selanne has 678 goals (which ranks 11th all time) and 1,437 points in 1,398 games with Winnipeg, Anaheim, San Jose and Colorado.
