The Ducks have recalled center Kalle Kossila from the San Diego Gulls, Anaheim's primary development affiliate in the American Hockey League (AHL).
Kossila, 23 (4/14/93), collected 9-18=27 points with a +20 rating and four penalty minutes (PIM) in 33 games with San Diego this season. At the time of his recall, Kossila ranked tied for fourth among AHL leaders in plus/minus, ranked second on the Gulls in assists, third in scoring and points-per-game (0.82), and tied for third in goals. The 5-10, 180-pound forward was signed by Anaheim as a free agent on Mar. 30, 2016 out of St. Cloud State of the National Collegiate Hockey Conference (NCHC) where he ranks tied for second in assists (105) and sixth in scoring (153) among all-time school leaders.
A native of Kauniainen, Finland, Kossila led St. Cloud State to the 2015-16 NCHC conference championship after ranking tied for fifth in the nation scoring (54) last season. Kossila, who was a 2015-16 Second Team All-Conference selection, tallied 48-105=153 points in four seasons (157 games) with St. Cloud State from 2012-16.
In addition, right wing Stefan Noesen was claimed by the New Jersey Devils earlier today.
