Ilya Bryzgalov to work out for Ducks

Goalie Ilya Bryzgalov has agreed to join the Ducks on a similar kind of tryout as the one Martin Brodeur had last week with the St. Louis Blues, Anaheim announced Wednesday on Twitter.

The situation most likely will lead the colorful Bryzgalov to a contract with Anaheim, sources have told ESPN.com.

Bryzgalov, 34, was an unrestricted free agent.

He finished last season with the Minnesota Wild, going 12-9-8 with a 2.68 goals-against average and a .909 save percentage.

The Ducks are short-handed in goal after losing John Gibson for about six weeks due to a groin injury earlier last month. Frederik Andersen has been starting in his place.

On Wednesday, the team announced that backup Jason LaBarbera is out two to three weeks with a broken bone in his hand.

The Ducks also said newly acquired defenseman Eric Brewer is out four to six weeks with a broken bone in his foot.

Brodeur reached a one-year deal with the Blues on Tuesday following a tryout with the team.
