Ducks cut seven players

The Anaheim Ducks cut their training camp roster to 53 players on Monday by returning one player to his junior team and releasing six more from amateur tryout agreements.

The Ducks returned defenseman Kenton Helgesen to the Calgary Hitmen of the Western Hockey League. Anaheim chose Helgesen in the seventh round (No. 187) in the 2012 NHL Draft.

The six players released from amateur tryouts include center Brent Andrews, forwards Austin Carroll, Ross Johnston and Ryan Horvat, defenseman Kyle Becker and goaltender Etienne Marcoux.

The Ducks, who won their preseason opener by beating the Phoenix Coyotes 6-2 on Monday, have 29 forwards, 19 defensemen and five goaltenders remaining on the roster.

Quote of the Day

We want to make sure that whoever makes our team really makes our team by earning it and not putting them in situations where they get preference because of their status as a first-round pick or whatever it might be. That's not going to happen. Everybody has to earn their way on our team.

— Columbus Blue Jackets general manager Jarmo Kekalainen on the team's prospects at development camp
