The Anaheim Ducks released their latest roster cuts this afternoon, here's a look at the remaining players in camp sorted numerically by position (waivers info per Renaud Lavoie):

Left Wing

Andrew Cogliano, Patrick Maroon, Carl Hagelin, Nick Ritchie, Max Friberg (WAIVERS-Cleared), Jiri Sekac, Kenton Helgesen (INJURED)

Center

Ryan Getzlaf, Ryan Kesler, Shawn Horcoff , Mike Santorelli, Chris Mueller, Nate Thompson (INJURED), Chris Wagner, Rickard Rakell, Michael Sgarbossa (WAIVERS-Cleared)

Right Wing

Corey Perry, Tim Jackman, Chris Stewart, Jakob Silfverberg, Ondrej Kase (INJURED)

Defense

Kevin Bieksa, Clayton Stoner, Cam Fowler, Korbinian Holzer (INJURED SJ GAME), Simon Despres, Josh Manson, Sami Vatanen, Hampus Lindholm, Joe Piskula (WAIVERS-Cleared)

Goalie

Matt Hackett (WAIVERS-Cleared), Anton Khudobin, Frederik Andersen, John Gibson

UPDATE 9/29: You can relax about waiver status for Friberg-

Notes

  • The tremendous camps for both Friberg and Ritchie have been further born out in the exhibition games, as Ritchie (two assists), Wagner (two goals), and Despres (two assists) have been the only players with points in multiple games.
  • Friberg has been used in a top line role against the Avalanche, as well as further down the lineup in the game at San Jose- likely Anaheim looking at utility for the winger as he almost surely would be used in a bottom six role if he remains with the club through camp, though may be headed for San Diego with his waiver placement.
  • Wagner, who saw significant time with the club last season including a pair of playoff games, helped his case for a continued stay in Anaheim thanks to the game-tying goal against the Sharks. He also had Anaheim's final goal in the opener at Colorado, tying his with Sekac for the preseason goal scoring lead.
  • Sgarbossa filled a lower line role against the Sharks nicely, continuing to throw the body around as in the public scrimmages, and seeing third most minutes (including 1:11 on the power play and 10 seconds shorthanded) amongst Ducks centers with 11:19 at SAP Center. He looked headed to San Diego.

Anaheim faces the Los Angeles Kings tomorrow night at STAPLES Center at 7:30 PM. The game will be broadcast locally on Prime Ticket, and to a national audience on NHL Network.
