ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) - The Anaheim Ducks sent veteran goalie Ray Emery back to Syracuse on Saturday and recalled goalie J.P. Levasseur from the AHL team.

Emery hasn't played for the Ducks since signing with the club on Feb. 7 and getting recalled to Anaheim on Feb. 23. The former Ottawa and Philadelphia netminder went 2-1-0 with Syracuse before his recall.

With Dan Ellis playing well for the Ducks in place of injured All-Star Jonas Hiller, the Ducks want Emery to get some playing time in the minors. Ellis has excelled since arriving in a trade with Tampa Bay last month, going 3-0-1 with a .918 save percentage.

Hiller has finished just one game since the All-Star break while dealing with a case of vertigo.

Quote of the Day

After being through it and seeing the other [outdoor] games on TV, just the atmosphere is spectacular. To stand here -- and we are essentially almost on the blue line -- and look up [into the stands] and knowing it is going to be packed and playing our biggest rival in this setting is going to be pretty special.
