The Ducks have recalled center Chris Wagner
from the San Diego Gulls, Anaheim’s primary development affiliate in the American Hockey League (AHL). In addition, the Ducks have reassigned right wing Stefan Noesen
to San Diego.
Wagner, 24 (5/27/91), has scored four goals (4-0=4) with 26 penalty minutes (PIM) in 37 games with the Ducks and Avalanche this season. The 6-0, 195-pound forward began the 2015-16 campaign with Anaheim before being claimed on waivers by Colorado on Nov. 15. Wagner was claimed on waivers again by Anaheim and subsequently assigned to San Diego on Feb. 25. He scored his first four career NHL goals with the Avalanche, including his first two in consecutive games on Nov. 25 vs. Ottawa and Nov. 28 vs. Winnipeg.
Selected by Anaheim in the fifth round (122nd overall) of the 2010 NHL Draft, Wagner collected 3-1=4 points with a +3 rating and 18 PIM in five games with San Diego this season.
Noesen, 23 (2/12/93), went scoreless in his Anaheim season debut last night in Arizona. The 6-1, 205-pound winger made his NHL debut with the Ducks on Apr. 3, 2015 vs. Colorado, going scoreless. He 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.
Selected by Ottawa in the first round (21st overall) of the 2011 NHL Draft, Noesen has collected 6-16=22 points with 50 PIM in 50 games with the Gulls this season. The Plano, Texas native has appeared in 79 career AHL games with Norfolk and San Diego, earning 13-25=38 points with 81 PIM.
