Day 3: Forward lines and defense pairs. Update.

For the first time all camp, you can put a lot of stock into these.

The Black Team is suiting up for tomorrow night’s game against the Phoenix Coyotes. The White Team is not. Should anyone be worried that the Black team lost 7-2 in the intrasquad scrimmage? Only if you’re on the Black Team, perhaps, but Randy Carlyle wanted to trot out a younger lineup in the Ducks’ preseason debut – probably with an eye toward the first round of roster cuts.

That means if fans want to get a glimpse of Ryan Getzlaf, Corey Perry, Teemu Selanne, Saku Koivu, Jonas Hiller, Todd Marchant, George Parros, Jason Blake, Kyle Chipchura, Andy Sutton, Sheldon Brookbank – and a couple others who will probably start the season in the NHL – the time is 10 a.m. tomorrow at Anaheim ICE. They get the night off.*

Bobby Ryan, Aaron Voros, Lubomir Visnovsky, Paul Mara and Ryan Carter won’t be there, since they will be with leading youngsters into battle at the morning skate tomorrow at Honda Center.

Without further ado, then:


Matt Beleskey – Bobby Ryan – Devante Smith-Pelly
Trevor Smith – Peter Holland – Dan Sexton
Brandon McMillan – Ryan Carter – Kyle Palmieri
Aaron Voros – MacGregor Sharp – Emerson Etem

Luca Sbisa – Mat Clark
Paul Mara – Cam Fowler
Scott Valentine – Lubomir Visnovsky

Curtis McElhinney
J.P. Levasseur


Nicolas Deschamps – Ryan Getzlaf – Corey Perry
Jason Blake – Maxime Macenauer – Nick Bonino
Rob Bordson – Kyle Chipchura – Troy Bodie
Stephane Veilleux – Todd Marchant – George Parros
Josh Green – Saku Koivu – Teemu Selanne

Andy Sutton – Brendan Mikkelson
Brett Festerling – Jake Newton
Mark Mitera – Sheldon Brookbank
Danny Syvret – Joe DiPenta

Jonas Hiller
Timo Pielmeier
Igor Bobkov

Note: A few Black teamers listed above (Kyle Palmieri, MacGregor Sharp,
Luca Sbisa, Paul Mara) were actually White teamers in Monday’s
scrimmage, and a few White teamers (Joe DiPenta, Brendan Mikkelson, Saku
Koivu, Nick Bonino) were actually Black teamers. A few notes on the scrimmage will follow.

*Update: A team spokesperson relays that the aforementioned players will have the night off from playing, but all have not the night off work. Any veterans not playing are
scheduled to greet fans at various locations throughout Honda Center prior to
opening faceoff. Players will work in the box office, elevators, concession
stands and other various locations, both tomorrow night against Phoenix and Wednesday against San Jose.
