According to the L.A. Times, Selanne suffered what was described as a “large mouth cut” when he took a stick to the face in the third period of Tuesday’s game against the Philadelphia Flyers.

As per the Ducks official Twitter account, Selanne lost several teeth and has a swollen jaw as a result of the high stick.
