***Lydman Cleared; Festerling Reassigned***

Ducks defenseman Toni Lydman, who was suffering from double-vision but has been practicing with the team daily, has been cleared to play.via web


According to the Ducks' Twitter account, defenseman Toni Lydman has been cleared for play and Brett Festerling has been reassigned to the Syracuse Crunch.  

After suffering from a bout of double vision and undergoing a battery of tests, Lydman was waiting for symptoms to subside and a follow up physical.  In the interim, he was not cleared for contact in practice, so it is unclear if he will be available for the Ducks' next contest, but the team sending down Brett Festerling, who was scratched for the last game, may be a positive indication for Lydman's timetable.
