Penalty Shot: Continued Cuts

ARTHUR:
The Ducks cut seven more from the roster today, sending Brandon McMillan back to Kelowna and shipping Shawn Weller, Brett Festerling, MacGregor Sharp, Maxime Macenauer and J.P. Levasseur to San Antonio.

Interestingly, Brian Salcido was assigned to Manitoba. Randy Carlyle and Bob Murray have a history with the Moose and the Canucks organization generally, and I'd venture a guess that the move is a goodbye to Brian Salcido. It should result in a minor trade, though the OC Register reports he'll have to clear waivers to assume a post in Manitoba. This is at odds with initial reports that Salcido signed a two-way renewal in July. Despite favorable opinions from the front office (which is really the only reason he made my Top Prospects list), Salcido has completed three full seasons in the AHL and was due for a change of scenery if he couldn't crack the Ducks roster this offseason.

Fellow blueliner Brett Festerling, who signed a two-year renewal this summer, is the first defenseman headed to Texas in the Ducks defensemen melodrama. Despite being the first cut from the D-corps, Festerling's 40 NHL games and 1 playoff game last year make him logical trade bait.

This was Anaheim calling to the hockey world. Keep your eyes on the minor trade news tickers.
