  • Levasseur gets look from Ducks

    News: Ilya Bryzgalov gave up four goals on 18 shots in Thursday's preseason opener against the Kings. He was replaced midway through the second period by J.P. Levasseur, who allowed just one goal on 15 shots. Jean-Sebastien Giguere didn't play in the exhibition game, nor did offseason addition Jonas Hiller.
    Analysis: Levasseur is well down the organizational depth chart, behind Bryzgalov and Hiller for now for the backup job to Giguere. If Bryzgalov is moved, he might move closer to a regular job in the NHL, but for now that is still an injury or two away.
