The Ducks have recalled defenseman Shea Theodore and right wing Corey Tropp from the San Diego Gulls, Anaheim's primary development affiliate in the American Hockey League (AHL).
Theodore, 21 (8/3/95), has collected 1-6=7 points with 18 penalty minutes (PIM) in 23 games with the Ducks this season. The 6-1, 194-pound defenseman has set NHL single-season career highs in several categories during the 2016-17 campaign, including assists, appearances and PIM. Selected by Anaheim in the first round (26th overall) of the 2013 NHL Draft, Theodore has earned 4-11=15 points with 20 PIM in 42 career NHL games. In 11 games with the Gulls this season, Theodore recorded 1-8=9 points with a +5 rating and eight PIM.
Tropp, 27 (7/25/89), earned 8-21=29 points with a +2 rating and 35 PIM in 32 games with San Diego this season. Acquired from Chicago in exchange for Tim Jackman and a seventh-round selection in the 2017 NHL Draft on Feb. 29, 2016, Tropp led the Gulls in points, assists and power-play goals (5) as one of five San Diego players to appear in all 32 games. The 6-0, 188-pound forward has appeared in 148 career NHL games with Buffalo (2011-14) and Columbus (2014-15), recording 6-21=27 points with 133 PIM.
