PHT’s Morning Skate takes a look around the world of hockey to see what’s happening and what we’ll be talking about around the NHL world and beyond.

Anaheim Ducks head coach Bruce Boudreau expects Teemu Selanne to be “great” this season. (OC Register [sub required] via Rotoworld)

Even Teemu’s opponents are rolling out the red carpet.

Anze Kopitar and the Los Angeles Kings welcomed him back, which would never happen for teammates like Corey Perry, one would assume. (Kopitar’s Twitter page, mascot Bailey’s feed)

Roberto Luongo offered his typically amusing take, as well. (strombone1’s feed)

The Ducks collected a variety of Twitter reactions from fans, media and others. (Ducks’ official site)

Switching to other Twitter topics, Viktor Stalberg had some fun at some unfortunate convertible driver’s expense on Friday. (Stalberg’s feed)

The AHL’s Portland Pirates have quite the headache to deal with. (WCSH6)

There’s some interesting stuff in this Q & A with Tuomo Ruutu. (Charlotte News & Observer)
