The Ducks recalled Nate Thompson (Achilles) from his conditioning stint with San Diego (AHL).
Thompson has not appeared in a game this season, but went to San Diego on a conditioning stint after being cleared to return from an Achilles injury. Thompson registered one assist in three AHL games and could make his season debut on Tuesday.
Thompson (shoulder) is expected to make his season debut on Wednesday.
Thompson has missed the start of the season after undergoing shoulder surgery in June. Thompson is expected to slot in on the Ducks’ fourth line against his former team. With Thompson back in the lineup, Patrick Maroon will likely be the healthy scratch.
