Ducks Recall Levasseur

by Staff Writer / Anaheim Ducks
The Ducks have recalled goaltender J.P. Levasseur from the Springfield Falcons of the American Hockey League (AHL).

Anaheim starter Jonas Hiller was scratched after warmups prior to last night's 3-1 victory over Dallas when he complained of back spasms and did not make the trip to Colorado with the team this morning.

Levasseur, 23 (1/15/87), appeared in 25 contests with Springfield this season, posting an 8-16-1 record with a 3.59 goals-against average (GAA) and .896 save percentage (SV%). He recorded one shutout with the Falcons, stopping all 49 shots he faced in a 4-0 triumph over the Bridgeport Sound Tigers on Feb. 14. A native of Victoriaville, Quebec, Levasseur recorded a 2.25 GAA and .925 SV% over a seven-game span with Springfield from Jan. 13-29, in which he won five of those seven contests (5-2-0). In addition, he had a three-game win streak (3-0-0) in that span, stopping 98-of-106 shots for a .925 SV% and 2.59 GAA from Jan. 13-17. The 6-0, 199-pound netminder also appeared in five contests with Bakersfield of the ECHL (2-3-0, 3.63 GAA, .903 SV%) and 16 games with Laredo of the Central Hockey League (10-3-3, 2.31 GAA, .919 SV%) this season.

Selected by Anaheim in the seventh round (197th overall) of the 2005 NHL Entry Draft, Levasseur appeared in 41 contests last season with the Iowa Chops, Anaheim’s then-affiliate in the AHL. He went 13-18-4 with a 3.11 GAA and .890 SV%. In 76 career AHL contests, Levasseur has gone 25-39-6 with a 3.19 GAA and .892 SV%. Playing four seasons of junior hockey with Rouyn-Noranda of the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League (QMJHL) from 2004-07, Levasseur led the league in wins in both 2005-06 (35) and 2006-07 (31). In 148 career QMJHL contests, he posted a 74-56-4 record with a 3.55 GAA.
