A person familiar with the move tells The Associated Press that the Anaheim Ducks have placed goalie Ilya Bryzgalov on waivers.

The person spoke Sunday on the condition of anonymity because the team has not announced the decision.

Bryzgalov hasn't played since allowing three goals on eight shots in a 6-2 loss at Florida on Feb. 10. The 34-year-old went 1-4-1 in eight appearances since signing a one-year, $2.88 million contract with Anaheim in December.

The Ducks were in need of goaltending depth behind Frederik Andersen after rookie John Gibson was sidelined by a groin injury.

Gibson has played six games since being recalled Feb. 10 following a two-month stint in the minors. Andersen is day to day after missing six games with an upper-body injury.
