Ducks re-sign C Steckel, send him to AHL
November 11, 2013
ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) - Center David Steckel has re-signed with the Anaheim Ducks.
The NHL-leading Ducks assigned Steckel to their AHL affiliate in Norfolk on Monday.
Anaheim also assigned goalie Viktor Fasth and left wing Matt Beleskey to Norfolk on long-term injury conditioning loans.
The Ducks acquired Steckel from Toronto last March. He scored six points in 21 games before playing in all seven postseason games.
Steckel is a faceoff specialist and a favorite of Ducks coach Bruce Boudreau, who coached him in Washington. The 10-year NHL veteran has 79 points in 418 games.
Fasth has been out since Oct. 16 with a lower-body injury. Frederik Andersen has won his first six NHL starts in his place.
Anaheim has the league's best record at 15-3-1. The Ducks open a four-game trip Tuesday at Florida.
