Ducklings to host Baby Sharks

In an official press release Saturday, the Anaheim Ducks announced that the team will be hosting a two-game series on September 8th and 9th that will pitt Ducks and Sharks prospects against each other. Presumably, the tournament is in part a replacement of the formerly annual Pacific Division Shootout, an event cancelled reportedly due to the regular-season games Anaheim and Los Angeles will play in London.

The Ducks announced their roster for the tournament, which includes 2005 No. 2 overall pick Bobby Ryan, 2007 first-round pick Logan MacMillan and brother of Buffalo Sabres goaltender Ryan Miller, Drew Miller, who might be one of the few players in the league considered a prospect despite having his name on the Stanley Cup. The Sharks have yet to make an official announcement regarding the tournament, let alone detailing their roster, but it's probably safe to say the lineup will include the likes of Logan Couture, Devin Setoguchi, Ty Wishart, Nick Petrecki and Thomas Greiss.
