Bodie sent to San Antonio.

Troy Bodie has been assigned to San Antonio of the AHL, giving the Ducks 15 forwards as the preseason concludes.

Figure that center Andrew Ebbett and left wing Logan MacMillan are in the running for the final forward spot. Both players, along with center Petteri Nokelainen, were healthy lineup scratches Sunday night against the Kings.

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.
