The Ducks have recalled right wing Stefan Noesen
from the Norfolk Admirals, Anaheim’s primary development affiliate in the American Hockey League (AHL).
Noesen, 22 (2/12/93), scored 5-8=13 points with 23 penalty minutes (PIM) in 23 games with Norfolk this season. Noesen appeared in Norfolk’s first four games of the season before suffering a lacerated Achilles tendon on Oct. 18 vs. Manchester. The 6-2, 205-pound forward returned on Feb. 13 vs. Syracuse after missing 44 games and collected 4-6=10 points in 19 contests prior to his recall. Noesen has yet to make his NHL debut.
Selected by Ottawa in the first round (21st overall) of the 2011 NHL Draft, Noesen has earned 5-8=13 points with 27 PIM in 25 career AHL games with the Admirals. Noesen was limited to two games in 2013-14 due to a torn ACL in his left knee suffered in October 2013. He returned to play four Calder Cup Playoff games in 2014, collecting a team-leading four assists (0-4=4) along with four PIM.
The Plano, TX native was acquired from Ottawa with Jakob Silfverberg and a first-round selection in the 2014 NHL Draft in exchange for Bobby Ryan on July 5, 2013. He earned 99-121=220 points in 215 career Ontario Hockey League (OHL) games with Plymouth from 2009-13. Noesen also scored 20-25=45 points in 33 career OHL Playoff games, helping lead the Whalers to the OHL’s Eastern Conference Finals in 2013.
