The Anaheim Ducks are parting ways with Todd Bertuzzi, as the club has placed the veteran winger on waivers with the intention to buy out the remaining season of his contract with the organization.

Bertuzzi was reunited with Ducks general manager Brian Burke last summer after signing a two-year, $8-million deal. If unclaimed, the team will pay two-thirds of his remaining deal and he will become an unrestricted free agent.

"Todd Bertuzzi is a quality person who we believe can still play at the NHL level," said Burke in a statement. "Unfortunately, we are handcuffed by our salary cap situation. We thank him for his efforts last year and wish him the best of luck in the future."

Bertuzzi, 33, played in 68 regular season games this past season, scoring 14 goals and 40 points. In 793 career NHL games, the former Vancouver Canuck has 240 goals and 580 points.
