The Anaheim Ducks announced today that 18-year National Hockey League (NHL) veteran Todd Marchant has retired as a player from the NHL. Marchant will join the Anaheim Ducks front office as Director of Player Development. In his new role with the club, the Buffalo, NY native will help prepare and educate Anaheim prospects to succeed in professional hockey.
“I’d like to personally thank Todd for his invaluable contributions to this organization over the last six years,” said Ducks Executive Vice President/General Manager Bob Murray. “His character and presence in our locker room will be missed, but we’re extremely grateful that he has agreed to join the front office as Director of Player Development. Congratulations to Todd and his family on a wonderful career.”

It appears increasingly likely that veteran center Todd Marchant, who stands to become an unrestricted free agent July 1, will be back in a Ducks uniform next season.
The team has made a contract offer to Marchant, confirmed Ducks general manager Bob Murray, who plans to talk further with Marchant’s agent, Englewood, N.J.-based Lewis Gross, during next week’s NHL entry draft in Montreal.
“Hopefully, it can get done,” Marchant said.

Todd Marchant will be out 2 weeks with a fractured finger on his left hand. Doctors tried to place a pin in the hand yesterday, but due to the nature of the injury it was not feasible.
From Eric Duhatschek at the Globe & Mail,
Truth be told, the player the Ducks would most like to ship out is Todd Marchant who earns $2.517 million - too much for what he brings to the table as a fourth-line checking forward. Who would take Marchant, up front, at the figure? No one. That’s why the Ducks might need to get creative to make a deal happen. Someone with salary-cap space might take Marchant off their hands, provided Anaheim sweetened the deal by including their own 2008 first-round choice in the transaction.

Todd Marchant admitted it was a tough pill to swallow Sunday when he was a healthy scratch for only the second time in his 14-year career.
“As a player, I’m not happy about it, but the only thing I can do is control what I can control,”
Marchant has been moved around the forward spots and played on mulitple lines this season. Coach Randy Carlyle said he would like to see more tenacity from Marchant, a former Olympian who has been known as one of the faster skaters in the NHL.
“Todd Marchant’s a skating hockey player, and he’s got to be on the puck all the time,” Carlyle said. “My expectations for our whole group are that we have to more of a skating group.”
