Following the announcement by the Toronto Maple Leafs that Brian Burke has been named the club’s General Manager, Anaheim Ducks Chief Executive Officer Michael Schulman issued the following statement:
“On behalf of the entire Anaheim Ducks family, we would once again like to thank Brian for his tremendous contributions over the last three-plus seasons,” said Schulman. “Brian stated on many occasions his desire to be closer to his family, which we support. We congratulate and wish him the best of luck with the Maple Leafs.”
ANAHEIM, Calif. – The Anaheim Ducks announced today that the National Hockey League (NHL) club has recalled right wing Bobby Ryan and defenseman Brett Festerling from the Iowa Chops, Anaheim’s primary development affiliate in the American Hockey League (AHL).
An MRI conducted this morning revealed that Ducks forward Brad May has a sprained right knee and is expected to be sidelined approximately two weeks. No other damage to the knee was found.
May injured the knee during a hit in the second period of Wednesday night’s 5-4 overtime win over the visiting Detroit Red Wings. He left the game and did not return.
The Ducks have placed defenseman Ken Klee on reverse waivers as of 9 a.m. (PST) Monday morning. If another NHL team claims Klee before 9 a.m. Tuesday morning, the Ducks would split his remaining salary for this season with that team.
The 37-year-old Klee has played in three games with the Ducks since being acquired in a Sept. 26 trade that sent veteran defenseman Mathieu Schneider to the Atlanta Thrashers. Klee was scoreless, with an even plus-minus mark and four penalty minutes.
