Jean-Sebastien Giguere's father passes away

Tuesday, 12.16.2008 / 9:29 PM / News
The father of Ducks goaltender Jean-Sebastien Giguere, Claude, passed away Monday morning in Montreal after a lengthy illness. Giguere is likely to back up Jonas Hiller in tonight's game against the New York Rangers at Honda Center.

Giguere is scheduled to leave the team to attend memorial services and miss Friday night's game at the Edmonton Oilers. He is planning to rejoin the Ducks in time for next Monday's game against the Vancouver Canucks. In Giguere's absence, the Ducks will recall an as-yet-unnamed goaltender from their AHL affiliate in Iowa.

Giguere left the Ducks for five days near the end of month to visit Claude in Montreal.
