The Ducks got more good news one day after their first win of the season when defenseman Toni Lydman was cleared to play.
The 33-year-old has been sidelined by double vision since training camp began. He had been practicing with the team
daily, but has not appeared in a regular or pre-season game.
The Ducks figure to get another veteran defenseman back when Andreas Lilja’s work visa is finalized.
To make room for Lydman on the active roster, defenseman Brett Festerling was assigned to AHL affiliate Syracuse Thursday.
