Anaheim also returned defenseman Shea Weber to his junior team, the Seattle Thunderbirds of the Western Hockey League. The move came one day after the Ducks signed him to a three-year, entry-level contract.

The Ducks have 19 forwards, 10 defensemen and three goaltenders remaining in camp.

Quote of the Day

It was a big dream. [Messi] is probably the best athlete out there, so it's a big honor, for [Kuznetzov] as well. It's maybe a once in a lifetime opportunity to meet the best player in soccer right now. I'm a big Barcelona fan and Messi fan, so it's huge. You can take [Michael] Jordan, [Mark] Messier, [Wayne] Gretzky, those kinds of [people]. It's an honor to meet. It's nice to be in that position.
