Ducks, Bryzgalov Part Ways

News: Ilya Bryzgalov was placed on unconditional waivers by the Ducks on Thursday for the purpose of his release, Renaud Lavoie of TVA Sports reports.
Analysis: Ilya Bryzgalov was placed on traditional waivers over the weekend after going 1-4-1 with a 4.19 GAA and .847 save percentage over his eight appearances with the Ducks. Though he was formally reassigned to AHL Norfolk on Tuesday, it appears Bryzgalov never had much of a desire to stay active in the minors while waiting for an opportunity with another club. It seems doubtful that he'll resurface again with another team this season, and with the goalie turning 35 in June, his NHL career might be finished.

Ducks' Bryzgalov Reassigned To AHL Norfolk

News: Ilya Bryzgalov was reassigned to AHL Norfolk on Tuesday, Lance Pugmire of the Los Angeles Times reports.
Analysis: Ilya Bryzgalov's future became murky after he cleared waivers Monday, but it looks like he's decided to stick around with the organization for the time being. It appears that the Ducks are content to go with either John Gibson or Jason LaBarbera as their primary backup goalie once Frederik Andersen (upper body) returns, making Bryzgalov no better than No. 4 on the organizational goalie depth chart.

Ducks' Bryzgalov Clears Waivers

News: Ilya Bryzgalov cleared waivers on Monday, the LA Times reports.
Analysis: Ilya Bryzgalov will meet with the team's general manager Bob Murrary later on Monday to discuss his future, but he'll otherwise report to AHL Norfolk unless he and Murray reach a different conclusion.

Ducks Place Bryzgalov On Waivers

News: Ilya Bryzgalov was placed on waivers by the Ducks on Sunday, Elliotte Friedman of Hockey Night in Canada reports.
Analysis: Ilya Bryzgalov's placement on waivers likely signifies the impending return of Frederik Andersen, who is expected to return off injured reserve in the near future. It's possible the Ducks will want to keep Bryzgalov around for depth, but there is no guarantee he will be back with the team in the future.

Ducks' Bryzgalov Yanked From Tuesday Start

News: Ilya Bryzgalov only faced eight shots Tuesday against the Panthers, but he was pulled after allowing his third goal early in the second period.
Analysis: What can we say? The guy just doesn't have it anymore. John Gibson didn't look good in relief, but that won't help Bryz much. Rolling him out in future starts -- if he even gets any -- is as risky as it gets.

Ducks' Bryzgalov Draws Tuesday Start

News: Ilya Bryzgalov will start Tuesday's game against the Panthers, Eric Stephens of the Orange County Register reports.
Analysis: With Frederik Andersen on IR and not available until next week, Ilya Bryzgalov will get the starting nod on Tuesday, with John Gibson set to back him up. He'll earn the nod over Gibson by virtue of a rare strong showing his last time out against the Capitals on Friday, when he held the opposition to two goals on 34 shots.

Ducks' Bryzgalov Makes One Save In Relief

News: Ilya Bryzgalov came up absolutely huge in Sunday loss to Tampa Bay, stopping the one shot he faced in relief of Frederik Andersen.
Analysis: Okay, we exaggerated that one a little bit, but he didn't allow a goal, so that's what matters. Starter Frederik Andersen left the game in the third period after the net fell on him, but his injury isn't expected to be serious. An easy outing for the 34-year-old Bryz, who was given the nickname "Ilya Bryzaster" during the broadcast. Ilya Bryzgalov is 1-3-1 on the season with a .859 save percentage and 3.95 GAA. If Andersen's injury happens to be serious, we wouldn't be too confident in Bryzgalov's ability to pick up the slack.

Ducks' Bryzgalov Takes Loss Friday

News: Ilya Bryzgalov gave up two goals on 32 shots in Friday's shootout loss to the Capitals.
Analysis: While Ilya Bryzgalov played very well in the loss, he's been inconsistent this season. The 34-year-old is now 1-3-1 on the season with a .858 save percentage and 4.05 GAA. Although he helped the Ducks nab a point Friday, whenever Frederik Andersen does get another rare night off, we wouldn't advise you to put too much confidence into Bryzgalov turning out another strong performance. This is Bryz though, so you really don't know. We wouldn't worry too much about it, as the solar system is so humongous big and there are far bigger problems out there.

Ducks Turn To Bryzgalov For Friday Start

News: Ilya Bryzgalov will be between the pipes for Friday's game against the Capitals, Eric Stephens of the Orange County Register reports.
Analysis: With Frederik Andersen forced to make 44 saves a night earlier in Nashville, the Ducks will turn the net over to Ilya Bryzgalov for just the sixth time this season. It's probably only Bryz's sizable cap hit ($2.88 million) that's kept him around this long, as he's shown no signs of competence when called upon this season. He enters Friday's game with a woeful 4.68 GAA and .832 save percentage. Even an elite team like the Ducks haven't been able to cover for his immense weakness in goal.

Ducks' Bryzgalov Pummeled In Loss

News: Ilya Bryzgalov was ripped apart for six goals on 25 shots before being pulled from Thursday's loss to the Sharks.
Analysis: Sadly, all that happened in less than two periods. Frederik Andersen came in and stopped all eight shots in relief, and he should continue to occupy the net most nights after Bryz's second six-goal implosion in four starts this season.

Ducks' Bryzgalov Expected To Start Thursday

News: Ilya Bryzgalov was the first goalie off the ice at the Ducks' morning skate and is expected to start Thursday against the Sharks, Eric Stephens of the Orange County Register reports.
Analysis: The Ducks will kick off a back-to-back set Thursday, presenting Ilya Bryzgalov with the rare opportunity to pick up a start while Frederik Andersen prepares for Friday's game against the Blackhawks. The Ducks have lost just one of their nine January contests, so the team may not even need Bryzgalov -- who owns an awful 3.71 GAA and .854 save percentage over four outings -- to be especially sharp to dispatch the Sharks.

Sharks' Bryzgalov In Net Friday

News: Ilya Bryzgalov will start in net Thursday against the Sharks.
Analysis: Ilya Bryzgalov was the first goalie off at morning skate and was expected to receive the start, which is indeed the case. It's a rare outing for the veteran, but Frederik Andersen is expected to be back in net Friday against the Blackhawks.

Ducks' Bryzgalov Earns First Win Of Season

News: Ilya Bryzgalov earned his first win of the season Friday, only needing to turn aside 14 shots in a 5-1 win over the visiting Devils.
Analysis: Although he really wasn't tested outside of Martin Havlat's first-period power-play marker, it was nice to see Bryz get back in the win column in his fourth appearance with his new team. He doesn't figure to get much action with workhorse Freddy Andersen seeing the majority of the time in the Ducks' blue paint, but in back-to-back situations such as this one -- where Anaheim plays again Saturday against a tougher opponent in the Kings -- Ilya Bryzgalov makes for an intriguing spot start on an elite team.

Ducks' Bryzgalov To Receive Start Friday

News: Ilya Bryzgalov will garner the start in goal for Friday's game against the Devils, Eric Stephens of the Orange County Register reports.
Analysis: Ilya Bryzgalov will get a rare turn as the Ducks kick off a back-to-back set Friday, with Frederik Andersen starting the second half of the twin bill Saturday against the Kings. The netminder has looked extremely rusty over his three appearances with the Ducks, contributing a 4.93 GAA and .836 save percentage.

Ducks' Bryzgalov Beat By Rangers

News: Ilya Bryzgalov surrendered three goals on 29 shots en route to a 4-1 loss to the visiting Rangers on Wednesday. The fourth was an empty-netter.
Analysis: Making just his second start and third appearance with the Ducks this season, Ilya Bryzgalov failed to record his first win, posting a save percentage below .900 (.897) for the third straight game. Until he shows the Ducks brass he's capable of winning a game for his new squad, expect him to be stapled to the bench while Freddy Andersen continues to pile up the starts.

Ducks' Bryzgalov In Line To Start Wednesday

News: Ilya Bryzgalov is in line to start Wednesday's game against the Rangers, Eric Stephens of the Orange County Register reports.
Analysis: Ilya Bryzgalov left the ice first during morning skate, and is thus in line to make his second start for the Ducks, marking his first action since Dec. 19. The 34-year-old gave up six goals in a disastrous showing that night against the Senators, prompting coach Bruce Boudreau to lean heavily on No. 1 goalie Frederik Andersen ever since. Bryzgalov has a lot of work to do before he can earn more regular appearances as the backup, but a strong showing against the Rangers would be a good place to begin.

Ducks' Bryzgalov Struggles In First Start

News: Ilya Bryzgalov made his first start of the season Friday, giving up six goals on 31 shots in a loss to Ottawa.
Analysis: Not a good night for Bryz, who has a disastrous .789 save percentage and 6.40 GAA through two appearances this season. While the Ducks may be leading the Western Conference with 49 points, this Ilya Bryzgalov experiment might not end up working out. It's still very early, however, so we'll need to see more of the 34-year-old in action to be certain of his future. If he can find his groove, Bryz could make for a solid fantasy option as the backup to starter Frederik Andersen.

Ducks' Bryzgalov Gets The Start Friday

News: Ilya Bryzgalov will be between the pipes for Friday's game against the Senators.
Analysis: Ilya Bryzgalov played briefly off the bench in his season debut Tuesday, but Friday's game will be the first he starts this season. He will square off against an Ottawa team that won its last time out but has done so just four times in its last 13 games.

Ducks' Bryzgalov Makes Season Debut

News: Ilya Bryzgalov made his season debut in Tuesday's loss to the Leafs, giving up two goals on seven shots in relief of Frederik Andersen.
Analysis: Toronto was all over the Ducks in this one, as neither Andersen or Ilya Bryzgalov could make enough stops. It was Bryz's first game in an Anaheim sweater since Nov. 7, 2007, and his first start since 2007 with the franchise that drafted him will likely come Thursday or Friday, when the Ducks play a back-to-back set.

Ducks' Bryzgalov Should Start Soon

News: Ilya Bryzgalov is expected to start either Thursday against the Canadiens or Friday against the Senators, Lance Pugmire of the LA Times reports.
Analysis: Ilya Bryzgalov signed a one-year deal with the Ducks on Tuesday of last week, and is reportedly already in pretty good shape. Fantasy owners should still try to avoid him until it's clear that he'll be given a decent workload in net for Anaheim.

Ducks Sign Bryzgalov To One-Year Deal

News: Ilya Bryzgalov signed a one-year, $2.88 million contract with the Ducks on Tuesday, Eric Stephens of the Orange County Register reports.
Analysis: Ilya Bryzgalov will join AHL Norfolk for a conditioning assignment that kicks off Wednesday, but he may only need a couple starts in the minors before joining the parent club. The Ducks have granted the last 15 starts in the net to No. 1 goalie Frederik Andersen, so the impending arrival of Bryzgalov could provide some much-needed relief. However, Bryzgalov isn't expected to pose much of a challenge to Andersen's standing as the No. 1 goalie, though his decent-sized contract could lock him in as the top backup even once John Gibson (groin) is back healthy.

Ducks' Bryzgalov Heading To Minors For Work

News: Ilya Bryzgalov is set to practice with AHL Norfolk on Tuesday and start for them Wednesday, Eric Stephens of the Orange County Register reports.
Analysis: The deployment to Norfolk is expected to be the final step for the Ducks in their evaluation of Ilya Bryzgalov, who is expected to sign with the team later this week. Unless he implodes in his outing Wednesday with Norfolk or otherwise demonstrates that his conditioning isn't up to par, he'll be poised to join the Ducks soon and take over as their backup netminder.

Ducks' Bryzgalov Aiming To Be Ready In 10 Days

News: Ilya Bryzgalov said he expects to be back at full speed in 10 days, Lance Pugmire of the Los Angeles Times reports.
Analysis: Since being cut by the Wild in training camp, Ilya Bryzgalov has been left to stay in shape on his own. It shouldn't take him too long to get enough workouts in before the Ducks feel comfortable signing him, which could happen at some point next week. At that point, he would become the top backup to Frederik Andersen, with current No. 2 Igor Bobkov then returning to the minors.

Ducks Bring Bryzgalov In For Tryout

News: Ilya Bryzgalov agreed to join the Ducks on a tryout basis Wednesday, Yahoo! Sports reports.
Analysis: Injuries to John Gibson (groin) and Jason LaBarbera (upper body) have created an opening for the backup goalie gig in Anaheim, and it appears coach Bruce Boudreau would prefer to have a veteran behind 25-year-old Frederik Andersen. Just like the Martin Brodeur's situation with St. Louis, Ilya Bryzgalov will work out for the Ducks just to make sure his conditioning is up to par, but it appears likely that he'll sign with the team in the coming days. Bryzgalov was useful for a time with the Wild when he was acquired late last season, but proved inconsistent when his number was called during the playoffs.

Wild Release Bryzgalov From PTO

News: The Wild released Ilya Bryzgalov from his professional tryout contract Monday, Chad Graff of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.
Analysis: Ilya Bryzgalov was brought in to provide some depth during training camp, but he will move on with the Wild set to open the season with Darcy Kuemper and Niklas Backstrom as their goaltenders.
