Ducks recall Smith-Pelly from Norfolk

The Anaheim Ducks recalled right wing Devante Smith-Pelly from the Norfolk Admirals of the American Hockey League on Monday.

Smith-Pelly, 21, appeared in four games for Norfolk this season and scored two goals with a plus-2 rating. He played in six preseason games for the Ducks and had three points with eight penalty minutes.

Spending most of last season in Norfolk, he had 32 points with 65 penalty minutes in 65 games.

Smith-Pelly was the Ducks' second-round pick (No. 42) in the 2010 NHL Draft. He debuted with Anaheim in 2011-12 and had 13 points with 16 penalty minutes in 49 games.

Quote of the Day

For six months, it's a really good accomplishment. But as soon as April [11, the end of the regular season] comes around, no one thinks about the regular season anymore. For six months, it's a real battle to get into the playoffs in the NHL these days. There are a lot of good teams, and it takes consistency over a long time.
