OOOOOOOOO!!!! OOOOOOOO!! OOOOOOOOOOOOO!
Ilya Bryzgalov ON WAIVERS!!
n a corresponding move, the Ducks recalled goaltender Jonas Hiller from Portland of the American Hockey League. The roster decision was a move that Ducks general manager Brian Burke was planning for some time.
"I'm keeping my word to a player here," Burke explained to TSN on Friday.
"Ilya Bryzgalov has won three playoff rounds for us and has played very well. But we've committed ourselves to two other goaltenders in Jean-Sebastien Giguere and Jonas Hiller. I told him if I couldn't find a place to play, I would put him on waivers. I gave his agent Don Meehan a time frame, and we're keeping our word to a player. As an organization, we find that to be important. He's a good kid, we know he'll get picked up and he'll play well wherever he goes. He's done his part for us over the last two seasons, and it's time we kept our word."
