Anaheim Ducks buy out contract of defenceman Nathan Oystrick

ANAHEIM, Calif. - The Anaheim Ducks have bought out the contract of defenceman Nathan Oystrick after he appeared in just three games for the team.

The Ducks made the move Wednesday after Oystrick cleared waivers. Oystrick will get about US$366,000 from Anaheim.

Anaheim acquired Oystrick from Atlanta on March 1, but he went scoreless in three appearances. He spent most of last season playing for the AHL's Chicago Wolves.

Oystrick had four goals and eight assists while playing 53 games for the Thrashers in 2008-09, his only full NHL season.
