19 Comments

The Anaheim Ducks have reportedly placed goaltender Ilya Bryzgalov on waivers.

Bryzgalov joined the Ducks in December on a professional tryout and appeared in eight games posting a 1-4-1 record to go along with a 4.19 G.A.A. and an .847 save percentage.

His last appearance came on Feb.10 against the Florida Panthers where he allowed three goals on eight shots before being replaced by John Gibson.

Gibson has started all five games (3-2-0) for the Ducks since that 6-2 loss to the Panthers. Anaheim plays host to the Detroit Red Wings on Monday night. According to Eric Stephens of The Orange County Register, Frederik Andersen (neck) could be back this week.

Bryzgalov split last season between the Edmonton Oilers and Minnesota Wild before going unsigned in the offseason.
