Dollas Sits Out With Chickenpox

Strains, sprains, hyperventilation, fatigue. What next for the Mighty Ducks?

How about chickenpox? Bobby Dollas, the Ducks' stalwart veteran defenseman, is ill and might miss the Ducks' four remaining regular-season games. He should be ready if the Ducks are in the playoffs, however.

"Bizarre," Coach Ron Wilson said.

Oddly, it's the second time a Duck has had chickenpox. Defenseman Don McSween missed seven games during the 1993-94 season.


The Ducks' power play, one of the NHL's worst their first three seasons, was the NHL's best during March. The Ducks scored on 28% of their opportunities (14 for 50) to outrank Pittsburgh (24.1%) The Ducks rank ninth overall (17.1%). . . . Wilson has been disappointed with the play of winger Warren Rychel at times lately and left him out of the lineup Tuesday.
