Simon Despres was recalled from his conditioning stint in San Diego. He played in four games with the Gulls recording one goal and one assist. He only appeared in four games with the Ducks until being knocked out by Colorado’s Tyson Barrie back in October. He didn’t record any points with the Ducks, had zero penalty minutes, and had a +/- of -4.

He has been practicing today with Sami Vatanen, but is still on the injured reserve list. He could play tomorrow in Boston, but no official word yet has been provided.

It looks like Frederik Andersen could get the start tomorrow. The original plan according to Bruce Boudreau was to split the back-to-back games between the two goalies. The snowstorm and postponement of the game against the Capitals changed that of course.
