The Ducks have reassigned goaltender Jeff Deslauriers
to the Syracuse Crunch, Anaheim’s primary development affiliate in the American Hockey League (AHL).
The reassignment comes after Dan Ellis
was activated after being out with a groin injury.
Deslauriers, 27 (5/15/84), did not make an appearance with Anaheim following his recall from Syracuse on Nov. 27. A native of St. Jean-Richelieu, Quebec, Deslauriers has appeared in seven games with Syracuse this season, posting a 3-4-0 record with a 4.75 GAA and .854 SV%.
Signed as a free agent by Anaheim on July 12, 2011, Deslauriers spent the 2009-10 NHL season with the Edmonton Oilers, posting a 16-28-4 record while compiling a 3.26 GAA and .901 SV%. He recorded his first NHL shutout on Nov. 23, 2009, stopping all 36 shots he faced in a 4-0 Edmonton win over Phoenix. Selected by Edmonton in the second round (31st overall) of the 2002 NHL Entry Draft, Deslauriers appeared in 58 career NHL contests with the Oilers, posting a 3.27 GAA, .901 SV%, and three shutouts.
