The Ducks have recalled right wing Kyle Palmieri
from the Syracuse Crunch, Anaheim’s primary development affiliate in the American Hockey League (AHL).
Palmieri, 21 (2/1/91), has appeared in 11 games with the Ducks this season, scoring 1-1=2 points with two penalty minutes (PIM). In 42 games with Syracuse, the Smithtown, NY native recorded 32-22=54 points with a +15 rating and 47 PIM. A 2012 AHL All-Star, Palmieri led the league in goals, co-led in game-winning goals (7) and ranked 10th in points at the time of his recall. The 5-11, 196-pound winger also ranked second on Syracuse in scoring, third in power play goals (6) and tied for second in plus/minus.
Selected by Anaheim in the first round (26th overall) of the 2009 NHL Entry Draft, Palmieri made his NHL debut with the Ducks in 2010-11. At 19 years, nine months and two days, Palmieri was then the fifth-youngest player in club history to appear in a game on Nov. 3, 2010 vs. Tampa Bay. He has appeared in 21 career NHL games with Anaheim, collecting 2-1=3 points with two PIM.
