Ilya Bryzgalov barely had to break a sweat as he made 15 saves on way to a 5-1 win over New Jersey on Friday night.
While the Devils put forth nine shots in the third period, the single shot they put forth in the second period was much more indicative of their effort as Anaheim took care of business across all three zones. This was Bryz's first win as a Duck since November of 2007, and improves his current record to 1-2-0 with a dozen goals against in four games. Jan 17 - 12:59 AM

Ilya Bryzgalov will be guard Anaheim's cage on Friday night versus New Jersey.

Frederik Andersen will probably get back in goal for Saturday's road games against the Los Angeles Kings. Bryzgalov stopped 26 of the 29 shots he faced against the Rangers in a 4-1 back on Jan. 7 in his last outing.
Jan 16 - 3:48 PM

Ilya Bryzgalov made 26 saves but it wasn't enough as the Ducks fell 4-1 to the New York Rangers on Wednesday.

Bryzgalov got the start due to some strong practices said Bruce Boudreau and he lived up to those remarks for the most part in this game despite the loss. He probably wanted the first goal back as Derick Brassard pretty much shot it through him but he had little chance on either of the other two goals. He is win-less in three appearances this season and has an ugly 4.39 GAA to go with an equally bad .836 save percentage. He is risky spot start even though he has a good team in front of him.
Jan 8 - 1:43 AM

Ilya Bryzgalov will get the nod for Anaheim on Wednesday against the New York Rangers.

"He's practiced really well and really hard," coach Bruce Boudreau said. "What better test than against the best?" Bryzgalov hasn't looked good in either of his appearances with the Ducks this season. His previous start was a 6-2 loss to Ottawa on Dec. 19 and he allowed two goals on seven shots in a relief outing on Dec. 16. He owns a .789 save percentage and a 6.40 GAA.
Jan 7 - 3:54 PM

Ilya Bryzgalov probably won't see much playing time in January thanks to the Anaheim Ducks' relatively favorable schedule.

"He's going to play," Ducks coach Bruce Boudreau said. "It's just a question where we've got days off in between and Freddie's playing so well that it's hard to take him out of the net right now. That’s my guess. But we want Bryz to play. We didn't just bring him up here for no reason at all. But when he’s ready to play, he'll play." Bryzgalov hasn't started since Dec. 19 when he allowed six goals on 31 shots. The Ducks are giving him a prorated salary of $2.88 million and aren't likely to get their money's worth.
Jan 2 - 8:47 AM

Ilya Bryzgalov made 25 saves on 31 shots in the Ducks' 6-2 blowout loss to Ottawa on Friday.

Bryzgalov was making his first start in relief of Federik Andersen for the Ducks since signing as a free agent back on December 9. The Ducks were playing the second half of a back-to-back scenario and finishing up a five game Eastern road trip so you have to think the entire team played into this loss. Still, he may not get a lot of starts with results like these.

Confirming an earlier report, Ilya Bryzgalov will indeed start for the Ducks against the Senators on Friday night.

In seven career starts against the Sens, Bryz has allowed two goals or less in five of those starts. That's really good for anyone, and especially so after considering the defenses the Coyotes and Flyers put in front of him at the time.

Ilya Bryzgalov is expected to make his first start with Anaheim this week.

It probably won't come on Tuesday, but it wouldn't be surprising to see him play in one of the Ducks' back-to-back games on Thursday and Friday. Bryzgalov is in his second stint with Anaheim after being drafted by the Ducks in 2000 and going on to play in 69 NHL games with them before seeing his career take off with the then Phoenix Coyotes.

Ilya Bryzgalov has completed his AHL conditioning stint.

Bryzgalov had a 2.53 GAA and .915 save percentage in two AHL contests. Now that he's gotten an opportunity to shake off the rust, he will serve as Frederik Andersen's understudy. The Ducks waived Jason LaBarbera in preparation for this move.

Ilya Bryzgalov played for the second night in a row and stopped 22 shots in a 4-3 win over Springfield on Saturday in AHL action.

No word on whether or not the Simpsons were in attendance at the game. Bryzgalov is on a conditioning stint and is now 1-1 with the Admirals after a 3-1 loss on Friday. He should be recalled by Anaheim shortly and then the Ducks will have to decide what to do with backup Jason LaBarbera.

Ilya Bryzgalov stopped 32 shots in Norfolk's 3-1 loss on Friday.

Bryzgalov is on a conditioning stint in the minors as he attempts to play once again in the NHL. It was a nice performance by the netminder as the Admirals gave up an empty net goal to make it a two goal game.
Sat, Dec 13, 2014 06:23:00 AM

Ilya Bryzgalov is projected to play for AHL Norfolk on Friday.

It will be Bryzgalov's first start of his conditioning stint. He's trying to shake off the rust so that he can join the Ducks and serve as their backup goaltender.
Fri, Dec 12, 2014 09:41:00 AM

The Anaheim Ducks have signed Ilya Bryzgalov to a one-year contract.

Bryzgalov won't be making his debut with Anaheim in the immediate future though as they've assigned him to the AHL on a conditioning stint. Once Bryzgalov has shaken off the rust, he'll serve as Frederik Andersen's understudy. That might not prove to be a glamorous role, but Bryzgalov is a talented, if inconsistent, goaltender. He's at the very least worth keeping a close eye on.

Look for the Anaheim Ducks to sign Ilya Bryzgalov to a contract in the upcoming week.

That's the rumor out of Anaheim where Frederik Andersen is starting, Jason LaBarbera is his backup and John Gibson is out with a groin injury. The Ducks have little faith in LaBarbera as a backup as Andersen has started the last 14 games in a row and apparently the team wants Gibson to play a lot when he returns so he will likely get the chance to do so in the AHL. Hence, with Bryzgalov getting ready in Anaheim and the team returning from a road trip after Wednesday's game, look for the signing to occur then. Bryzgalov will be worth owning in deep leagues as a handcuff to Andersen.

Ilya Bryzgalov is working out and awaiting for the Ducks to return from their road trip.

Anaheim will finish its road trip on Wednesday. Bryzgalov will be able to start practicing with the team once they're back. He agreed to a tryout contract and once he gets up to speed, they might ink him to a one-year deal.
