Troy Bodie has been assigned to San Antonio of the AHL, giving the Ducks 15 forwards as the preseason concludes.
A 6-foot-4, 214-pound right wing, Bodie projected as a big body on the energy line. By going with either the 5-9 Ebbett or the 6-1 MacMillan, the Ducks will enter the season with a smaller lineup — certainly, a smaller energy line — than in recent years.
Bodie made his NHL debut last year in Anaheim and appeared in four regular-season games, recording four penalty minutes without a point. In four preseason games, Bodie had no points, 10 penalty minutes and a minus-2 rating.
