With the Ducks veterans healthy the Ducks send the rookies down to San Diego which means the the Ducks officially have for the first time in a long time an all veteran lineup. Ducks welcome back defenseman Korbinian Holzer and will expect for him to draw back into the lineup during the Canadian road swing with one stop in Philadelphia before returning to Honda Center.
The Ducks have recalled defensemen Korbinian Holzer and Jaycob Megna from the San Diego Gulls, Anaheim’s primary development affiliate in the American Hockey League (AHL). In addition, Anaheim has reassigned right wing Troy Terry, left wing Max Jones, center Sam Carrick and defensemen Andy Welinski, Jacob Larsson, Jake Dotchin and Andrej Sustr to San Diego.
