No big surprises but it’s notable Kyle Cumiskey was assigned to Norfolk rather than be allowed to sign with a European team. Obviously they want him available for a call up. He is a puck moving Dman with some offensive upside.

I would have thought there’d be more cuts this close to the season. It would appear the coaching staff wants to run some full scrimmages.

Apologies for not being on top of this when it was announced yesterday. It’s a really busy work week.

Via AnaheimDucks.com:

The Ducks announced today that the club has made the following roster moves:

Assigned to Norfolk (AHL):
Mat Clark
 – Defenseman
Joseph Cramarossa
 – Center/Left Wing
Kyle Cumiskey
 – Defenseman
John Gibson
 – Goaltender
Alex Grant
 – Defenseman
Stefan Noesen
 – Right Wing

Anaheim now has 35 players remaining on its 2013 Training Camp Roster – 19 forwards, 12 defensemen and four goaltenders.

In other news, Ducks signed 2013 1st round draft pick Shea Theodore to a 3-year entry level contract. IIRC Theodore has another junior eligibility and will be returned to the Seattle Thunderbirds following camp. He could stay for 10 games without forfeiting his junior eligibility.

    I have seen the televised game against the Kings, and I must say I was disappointed. Of course you cannot expect too much in the preseason, but there were just a few plays to like.

      Your disappointment is shared here, cz. The first period was pretty good. At some point though I tweeted that they might pay a price for the missed opportunities. Kings stayed sloppy through the second and third but picked up their skating, D-coverage and created just enough offense to win. Really hate to suggest a preseason game is a must win but you don”t want to enter the season on a 3 game losing streak.
