ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) -- Anaheim Ducks forward Teemu Selanne could be out two weeks for oral surgery after losing several teeth to a high stick.

Selanne is returning home from the Ducks' road trip Wednesday.

Philadelphia's Luke Schenn inadvertently hit Selanne in the mouth with his stick during the Ducks' 3-2 win over the Flyers on Tuesday.

Selanne lost at least four teeth and needed 40 stitches. He will undergo surgery this week.

The 43-year-old Finnish Flash is in his 21st and final NHL season. He has three goals and four assists in 11 games.

The Ducks already lost forwards Saku Koivu and Jakob Silfverberg to injury during their eight-game road trip, the longest of the season.

Anaheim is 3-2 with three straight victories on the trip, which continues Thursday in Boston.
