Here is an update on Bertuzzi

Todd Bertuzzi said Monday he is still experiencing dizziness as a result of his Oct. 14 concussion against Minnesota, and the lingering symptoms are limiting how much he can do off the ice.
Bertuzzi did a light skate on the Honda Center ice, but his slow recovery is getting to the forward. He's played in only seven games since joining the Ducks.

"It's frustrating," he said. "Really frustrating."
Andy McDonald can relate. It took the center nearly two years to fully recover from a devastating hit laid on him in 2003 by Adam Foote, then of the Colorado Avalanche.

And while at least one is skating and training again, the question of either returning won't go away.
When captain Chris Pronger was asked Tuesday about the fact that Niedermayer was skating again and about Selanne's appearance at Friday night's home game against San Jose, the defenseman said, "Are we going to talk about this again?"

Kondratiev goes back to Russia

Maxim Kondratiev refused assignment to the Anaheim Ducks' AHL affiliate in Portland and was suspended Tuesday by the minor league team.

The 24-year-old defenseman, who remains the property of the Ducks, has returned to Russia and intends to play for St. Petersburg of the Russian Superleague. He was with Lada Togliatti in that league last season.

Kondratiev made his debut for the Ducks on Oct. 6 and played in four games overall. He has no points, and was a healthy scratch for Anaheim's last four games.

The Ducks acquired him from the New York Rangers on Jan. 8, 2006, for Petr Sykora and a fourth-round draft choice.
