Found January 17, 2013 on On the Duck Pond:
In an abbreviated training camp, there is no time to dawdle and wait and see.  The Ducks have been making minor tweaks here and there, but the first cuts came on Wednesday. After sending goaltender Viktor Fasth to Norfolk for conditioning and game action, the Ducks have brought up Fredrik Andersen.   Andersen may very well be the guy on the bench to back up Jonas Hiller when the season begins on Saturday in Vancouver. It was initially thought that Jeff Deslauriers would be the initial back up, but he has also received a plane ticket to Norfolk.  While Fasth is likely to return soon, Deslauriers may be in the AHL a wee bit longer.   Standout prospect, John Gibson, was assigned to Kitchener.  Gibson is too young for the AHL this year, and by sending him back to his junior team, the Ducks will not be able to make use of Gibson until next season at the earliest.    Gibson continues to improve and develop and will be a nice addition in net for Anaheim in the future.

Selanne hopes Ducks are "pissed" off about their low predictions

Predictions are hardly ever accurate. Unless your team is so bad that you can't help but to finish dead last. Or a team is so much of a sure thing that you can' miss. I'm no hockey expert, but I wouldn't classify the Anaheim Ducks as neither. But the experts are saying the Ducks won't be a contender this season and veteran Teemu Selanne isn't taking it lightly...

Anaheim Ducks ready for redemption after bad year

Coach Bruce Boudreau can't imagine an NHL team more eager to get back to work than the Anaheim Ducks. Corey Perry and Ryan Getzlaf are playing for new contracts. Teemu Selanne knows he's running out of time at 42. And Boudreau simply detests sitting still, making the lockout particularly painful. The Ducks all hope to rebound from last season's awful start, which kept...

Oh, O'Reilly

Ryan O'Reilly, the Avs leading scorer from last season, is in a contract dispute with the Avs. On Jan 16th Adrian Dater reported that over the summer the Avs offered Ryno a 5-year deal worth $17M, or $3.4M/season. Well, this information quickly changed the narrative of the Avs being cheap, to Ryan O'Reilly being greedy. Most fans on twitter seemed to think Ryan O'Reilly...

Camp Continues; Fasth Sent to Norfolk

The Ducks continue with their abbreviated training camp and already are making some interesting moves. Goaltender Viktor Fasth was sent to Norfolk of the AHL, not because he has been cut, but in order for him to get some game experience in.  Fasth has not played a game since last November when he injured his hip in Sweden.  He has been dealing with hip and groin issues since...
