Ducks assign three more to San Antonio.

LW Matthew Beleskey, GTimo Pielmeier and RW Dan Sexton are headed to San Antonio of the AHL in the latest round of training camp cuts, announced Sunday.Anaheim now has 33 players remaining on its 2009 Training Camp Roster – 19 forwards, 11 defensemen and three goaltenders.

Sexton, 22, may have had the most eye-popping camp of the three, registering a goal and two assists in two preseason games. The 5-10, 170-pound right wing was an undrafted free-agent signee out of Bowling Green. His speed and dangerous wrist shot made him an offensive threat in both games.

Pielmeier, 20, also had a pair of standout efforts. In the Ducks’ preseason opener last Wednesday, Pielmeier stopped 27 of 28 against the Phoenix Coyotes at Honda Center. He was also the unfortunate goalie Friday when the Phoenix Coyotes took 30 shots in the first period to the Ducks’ 2. Pielmeier saved 28 of the 30, then stopped the final five shots he faced in the game, before giving way to J.P. Levasseur.

Pielmeier was a third-round draft pick of the Sharks in 2007 and came to Anaheim in the Travis Moen/Kent Huskins trade.

Beleskey, 21, was held scoreless in two appearances. The 2006 fourth-round draft pick didn’t show the same scoring touch that allowed him to register 11 goals and 35 points in 58 games for Iowa (AHL) last season.
