This morning, the Anaheim Ducks placed defensmen Brett Festerling and Danny Syvret on waivers, the club announced today. They have until 9 a.m. PDT Friday morning until waivers expire. If they clear waivers, they remain with the organization and can be sent down to the Syracuse Crunch of the AHL.
Syvret signed a one-year, two-way deal earlier in the summer that will pay him $600,000 with the Ducks or $105,000 in the AHL. He has played in 49 games in four NHL seasons, with the Edmonton Oilers and Philadelphia Flyers.
Festerling has played in 82 games in the last two seasons with the Ducks.
Yesterday was the club fishing trip, as noted on Syvret's Twitter account:
Deep sea fishing today. Wonder which teammate will reel in the biggest catch?
Little did Syvret know that he might have been Fredo Corleone. The biggest catch, however, just might be Cam Fowler. Eric Stephens of the Orange County Register speculates that placing Festerling and Syvret on waivers could pave the way for the 18-year old top draft pick to make the Ducks.
