The Ducks have recalled left wing Max Friberg from the San Diego Gulls, Anaheim's primary development affiliate in the American Hockey League. In addition, the Ducks have assigned right wing Tim Jackman to San Diego.
Friberg, 22 (11/20/92), made his NHL debut on Dec. 28, 2014 vs. Vancouver, going scoreless in 8:47 time-on-ice (TOI) with two hits. Beginning the 2015-16 season with San Diego, Friberg collected 3-2=5 points with a +2 rating in seven games. At the time of his recall, Friberg ranked tied for third among team leaders in scoring and plus/minus, tied for second in goals and first in shorthanded goals (1).
Selected by Anaheim in the fifth round (143rd overall) of the 2011 NHL Draft, Friberg has scored 36-50=86 points with 101 PIM in 145 career AHL games with San Diego and Norfolk. He has also appeared in 10 career Calder Cup Playoff games, collecting 3-2=5 points with two penalty minutes (PIM). A native of Skovde, Sweden, Friberg led all players at the 2012 World Junior Championship in goals and ranked tied for second in scoring (9-2=11). He became the first Anaheim draft pick to be named to the tournament All-Star Team since Paul Kariya in 1993 after helping lead Sweden to a gold-medal victory.
