Ducks' Tenkrat to stay with Anaheim

The Cincinnati Enquirer

        Cincinnati Mighty Ducks General Manager David McNab said right wing Petr Tenkrat, 23, will remain with the parent club Mighty Ducks of Anaheim for an indefinite period, which will keep the first-year pro out of the 2001 First Union AHL All-Star Classic Jan.14-15 in Wilkes-Barre, Pa.

        Tenkrat, who had nine goals and nine assists for 18 points in 25 games this season with Cincinnati, has provided a spark for Anaheim since being called up from the AHL.

        In his first 11 NHL games, the Kladno, Czech Republic native has four goals and eight points, including an overtime, game-winning goal Jan. 3 against Florida and a game-tying, third-period goal in a 2-2 draw Dec.28 against Nashville.

        “Petr has been an unbelievable player for us,” Anaheim right wing Teemu Selanne said. “He's been a big bonus for us. He's got all the tools to be a great player. He's fast. He's strong. His shot is like a rocket.”

        “He's the kind of player who can be a game breaker, Anaheim coach Guy Charron said. “He's one of those players that likes to be out there in pressure situations.”

        Tenkrat joins forwards Marc Chouinard, Matt Cullen, Mike Leclerc, Andy McDonald and defensemen Mike Crowley, Niclas Havelid, Ruslan Sale, Pavel Trnka and Vitaly Vishnevski as former Cincinnati players on the current Anaheim roster.

        Leclerc, Anaheim's second-leading scorer with 12 goals and 18 assists this season, is expected to play again next Wednesday against St. Louis. A second MRI of his injured right knee revealed no ligament damage. He hurt the knee Dec.28 in a 2-2 tie with Nashville.
