Anaheim Ducks put D Bryan Allen on injured reserve, recall D Nolan Yonkman from AHL

ANAHEIM, Calif. - Ducks defenceman Bryan Allen has been placed on injured reserve with a lower-body injury.

Anaheim also recalled defenceman Nolan Yonkman from its AHL affiliate in Norfolk on Tuesday.

Allen has seven assists and a plus-13 rating in 40 games this season for the NHL-leading Ducks. He sat out against Edmonton last Friday, but returned to the lineup for Sunday's victory over Vancouver.

Yonkman arrived in Anaheim in time for warmups before Tuesday night's game against Boston. The veteran suited up for two games earlier this season for the Ducks, getting one assist.

Anaheim already was without injured defencemen Luca Sbisa and Sheldon Souray, who hasn't played all season.

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.
