Ducks' Lydman to miss start of training camp
Anaheim Ducks defenseman Toni Lydman won't be taking the ice with his new teammates when training camp opens Saturday.

The Ducks on Thursday revealed that Lydman, signed July 1 to a three-year, $9 million contract, suffered an acute episode of double vision last week. The team said medical tests have ruled out most major medical concerns but have not identified the cause of the problem. Lydman still is experiencing symptoms, and as a result, he will not be to train or skate until the problem is diagnosed.

"Our top priority is Toni's health,” Ducks Executive General Manager Bob Murray said. "Toni is feeling much better this week and we are encouraged by the results of his recent tests. However, we will proceed with caution until we can identify the source of the problem."

In 660 NHL games over nine seasons with the Flames and Sabres, Lydman has 33 goals and 198 points. Last season, his fifth with the Sabres, he posted 4 goals and 20 points in 67 games.
