Schneider kept out of camp
Veteran defenseman Mathieu Schneider, whom the Ducks are desperately trying to trade in order to escape his $5.625 million salary-cap hit, will not be at Honda Center to undergo a standard pre-camp medical exam Friday morning.
“They have said something may be imminent, so there’s no point in coming,” said Pat Morris, Schneider’s agent. “He’s going to stay home through the weekend. Maybe something will get done.”
“We would like to have dealt with this before camp, if possible,” general manager Brian Burke said. “We’ve spent hundreds of man-hours on it, and we took our best shot."
