Teemu Selanne's injured mouth sustained in the Anaheim Ducks' win against the Philadelphia Flyers on Tuesday added to the team's lengthy list of injured players.

But with Selanne back in California awaiting oral surgery, the team should get at least one body back against the Boston Bruins on Thursday as Dustin Penner said he's healthy enough to get back in the lineup after a five-game absence.

Penner took part in the morning skate Wednesday, and should make his return to the lineup Wednesday night. If he plays it would be his first game since Oct. 20, when he sustained a concussion on a hit by the Dallas Stars' Ryan Garbutt. Garbutt was suspended for five games by the NHL Department of Player Safety for the hit.

The Ducks will continue their season-long eight-game, 15-day road trip at TD Garden against a Bruins team that arrived home late Wednesday after a loss at the Pittsburgh Penguins.
