Jeff Deslauriers will see some action during the pre-season due to the off-season surgery for Jonathan Quick.

Deslauriers is in camp on a professional tryout and could see some action if Quick is not ready to go once the season gets underway but right now, Quick is locked in as the number one netminder when healthy and Martin Jones will be his backup, leaving no room for the former Oiler on the roster.

Jeff Deslauriers will attend the Kings' training camp on a tryout basis.

Deslauriers will compete with Martin Jones for the backup job, but he's a long shot to win it. In the likely event that Deslauriers isn't able to secure a roster spot, he might still sign with the Kings to serve in the AHL.

The Pittsburgh Penguins have signed Jeff Deslauriers to an AHL contract.

With Tomas Vokoun out of action indefinitely after surgery to remove blood clots from his pelvis, the Penguins are looking for some goaltending depth and the signing of the former Oiler netminder will help. He could end up on the opening night roster as the backup to Marc-Andre Fleury.

Jeff Deslauriers has been traded to Minnesota for future considerations.

He has appeared in 15 games with the ECHL's Fort Wayne Komets this year and two with the AHL's Norfolk Admirals. Deslauriers will add some organizational depth in the crease after the team traded Matthew Hackett to Buffalo before Wednesday's deadline.

Jeff Deslauriers has been sent down to the ECHL.

It looks like Viktor Fasth will at least be able to serve as the backup goaltender on Saturday. Deslauriers has a 2.57 GAA and .915 save percentage in eight ECHL games this season.

Anaheim Ducks recall Jeff Deslauriers from ECHL Fort Wayne.

Deslauriers is scheduled to back up Jonas Hiller, who will start Tuesday after Viktor Fasth suffered an upper-body injury. Thankfully the Ducks are in Minnesota so the trip isn't too long for Deslauriers to make at the last minute. According to Wild beat writer Michael Russo, the Ducks also have local goalie Zach Sakich in reserve in case Deslauriers doesn't arrive in time.

Deslauriers spent 10 days in the NHL while Jonas Hiller was hurt, but he had no place on the roster with Hiller now healthy.

Look for Jeff Deslauriers to be sent to the minors with the return of Jonas Hiller to the Anaheim lineup.

Deslauriers was up in the NHL for 10 days but with Hiller coming out of Monday's game healthy, there is no reason for the Ducks to have three goalies on their roster. Deslauriers had a great seat to watch the games as he did not see any action.

Jeff Deslauriers has been recalled from the minors to back up Viktor Fasth on Saturday.

Jonas Hiller is being listed as day-to-day with a lower-body injury after leaving Friday night's game as a precaution.

Jeff Deslauriers has been placed on waivers by the Anaheim Ducks.

Deslauriers will be sent to the minors if he clears waivers. He was a candidate to make the Ducks as their backup goaltender, but it looks like that won't be the case. He still might get called up at some point this season if one of Anaheim's goaltenders suffers an injury.

Jeff Deslauriers will be the Anaheim this week after the Ducks sent Viktor Fasth to the minors.

Deslauriers will likely be sent down to Norfolk once the Ducks get Fasth back to the big club. Deslauriers is just a depth goalie at this time as the Ducks signed Fasth in the off-season as the second goalie to Jonas Hiller.

Jeff Deslauriers has signed a professional tryout contract with the Norfolk Admirals of the AHL.

He appeared in four games with the Ducks last season and played 16 contests with the Syracuse Crunch in the minors.

Jeff Deslauriers has been put on waivers by the Anaheim Ducks.

If there's a 2012-13 NHL season, then Deslauriers will compete with Viktor Fasth for the backup job in Anaheim. That being said, Fasth should be considered the favorite in that battle.

Jeff Deslauriers could be packing his bags before the start of the next season.

The Anaheim Ducks on Monday signed Viktor Fasth out of the Swedish Elite League to be their back up to Jonas Hiller. Deslaueriers has a one-way contract, meaning the only chances he has at sticking in Anaheim is if he beats Fasth for the No. 2 job in training came or clears waivers and is sent down to the AHL. That leaves open the chance that he could be on the moved. General manager Bob Murray wouldn't discuss the topic, simply saying "that there will be competition in goal." Deslauriers, in four games with the Ducks, went 3-1-0 with a 2.74 goals-against average and .902 save percentage.
