Anaheim Ducks recall C David Steckel after Nick Bonino apparently sidelined with injury

ANAHEIM, Calif. - Centre David Steckel has been recalled by the Anaheim Ducks after Nick Bonino was injured in their last game.

The NHL-leading Ducks added the veteran Steckel to their roster Saturday before their home game against the Dallas Stars.

Steckel has played in four games for Anaheim this season, spending most of his time with their AHL affiliate in Norfolk. He has played in 423 NHL games for four teams.

Bonino is the Ducks' third-leading scorer with 16 goals and 24 assists while playing in all 56 games during his breakout season.

The centre apparently injured his wrist during the first period of Anaheim's win over Philadelphia on Thursday. He played four shifts in the second period before going back to the dressing room.

Quote of the Day

I'm just excited about the opportunity. I've been on the ice earlier than usual and in the weight room, pushing around a little more weights than usual. Every day I go into a workout with a smile on my face and ready to go. When you do have a little more responsibility, you want to take your lunch pail and get ready to work.
