Ducks send Deslauriers, Guenin to minor leagues

The Anaheim Ducks on Tuesday sent defenseman Nate Guenin to Norfolk of the American Hockey League and goaltender Jeff Deslauriers to Fort Wayne of the ECHL.

The Deslauriers move comes a day after Jonas Hiller was able to return to the lineup after missing 10 days with a lower-body injury. He stopped 25 of 27 shots in a 3-2 win Monday against the Columbus Blue Jackets.

Deslauriers spent four games as the backup to Viktor Fasth.

Guenin was a healthy scratch in four games after being recalled Feb. 11.

I've been getting frustrated lately, and the only thing keeping me sane was the team winning and other people stepping up and scoring. Then you just kind of let it go and realize you can end the series with one shot, that frustration goes away for a brief moment, and that's what happened.
