The Ducks have recalled left wing Patrick Maroon from the Syracuse Crunch, Anaheim’s primary development affiliate in the American Hockey League (AHL).
Maroon, 23 (4/23/88), appeared in six games with Syracuse this season, collecting 4-4=8 points with a +6 rating and 15 penalty minutes (PIM). At the time of his recall, Maroon ranked tied for fourth among AHL leaders in plus/minus and tied for 13th in goals. He was originally recalled by Anaheim on Oct. 16 but did not appear in a game with the NHL club before being reassigned to Syracuse on Oct. 18. Acquired from Philadelphia with David Laliberte in exchange for Danny Syvret and Rob Bordson on Nov. 21, 2010, Maroon scored one goal in two preseason games with Anaheim last month.
Selected by Philadelphia in the sixth round (161st overall) of the 2007 NHL Entry Draft, Maroon has appeared in 220 AHL games with Philadelphia (2007-09), Adirondack (2009-11) and Syracuse (2010-11), scoring 64-98=162 with 300 PIM. The St. Louis, MO native has also appeared in four career Calder Cup Playoff games with the Phantoms, earning 1-2=3 points with 13 PIM.
