***Boynton Waived; Selanne Playing***

The Ducks have a pair of interesting roster moves going into tonight's game.  First, according to The OC Register the team placed defenseman Nick Boynton on waivers.  The defenseman was signed to a 1.5M/1yr contract this past offseason, but has seen himself frequently scratched in the month of January, a successful month for the team.  

Second, according to Dan Wood, writing for the Ducks' Official site, Teemu Selanne is ready to play tonight.  The veteran winger would return in the middle of his estimated 2-6 week recovery schedule after suffering a broken jaw from a deflected puck in a January 13th game against Boston at Honda Center.

UPDATE:  To make room for Teemu, forward Matt Beleskey was sent down to the Bakersfield Condors of the ECHL. Despite a complicated affiliate situation this season, the Ducks had managed to find AHL placement for Beleskey twice before.  This will be his first stint below the AHL level.
