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

It was a big dream. [Messi] is probably the best athlete out there, so it's a big honor, for [Kuznetzov] as well. It's maybe a once in a lifetime opportunity to meet the best player in soccer right now. I'm a big Barcelona fan and Messi fan, so it's huge. You can take [Michael] Jordan, [Mark] Messier, [Wayne] Gretzky, those kinds of [people]. It's an honor to meet. It's nice to be in that position.
