The Ducks have reassigned center Kalle Kossila and defenseman Steven Oleksy to the San Diego Gulls, Anaheim's primary development affiliate in the American Hockey League (AHL).
Kossila, 24 (4/14/93), recorded 1-1=2 points in two games with Anaheim following his Oct. 23 recall from the Gulls. Kossila earned his first career NHL point (assist) in a 6-2 victory over the Philadelphia Flyers on Oct. 24 at the Wells Fargo Center and scored his first career NHL goal vs. Florida's James Reimer on Oct. 26 at the BB&T Center. Kossila has earned 2-4=6 points with six penalty minutes (PIM) in five AHL games with San Diego this season. The 5-10, 185-pound center currently co-leads the Gulls in scoring, ranks tied for second in assists and tied for third in goals.
Oleksy, 31 (2/4/86), did not appear in Thursday's game in Florida following his recall from San Diego earlier in the day. Oleksy returns to the Gulls having collected 2-2=4 points with a +2 rating and four PIM in five AHL games. The 6-0, 188-pound defenseman has recorded points in three of his five games, while leading Gulls defensemen in goals and ranking tied for second in scoring.
