Ducks recall Sbisa, Rakell from Norfolk
The Anaheim Ducks recalled defenseman Luca Sbisa from his long-term injury conditioning loan to the Norfolk Admirals of the American Hockey League on Sunday.

The Anaheim Ducks recalled defenseman Luca Sbisa from his long-term injury conditioning loan to the Norfolk Admirals of the American Hockey League on Sunday. Sbisa, who has yet to play an NHL game this season due to an ankle injury, remains on long-term injured reserve.

The Ducks also recalled center Rickard Rakell from Norfolk and reassigned center Peter Holland. Rakell has six points (four goals, two assists) with six penalty minutes in 11 games for the Admirals, and co-led the team in scoring, goals and appearances. The youngest player to appear in a game for the Ducks (19 years, eight months, 14 days), Rakell was assigned to Norfolk on Oct. 31.

Holland was 1-0-1 in four games with Anaheim. He scored the team's second goal of his season debut Oct. 27, a 4-3 win against the Columbus Blue Jackets. He's 3-1-4 in five games for the Admirals.

Quote of the Day

He seemed to thrive on his own and didn't really need any push from me. I certainly don't want to get in the way of the coaches. You see how that goes sometimes. I never really worried about it and just enjoyed the ride.
