Mikkelson up, Wisniewski to IR.

The Ducks recalled defenseman Brendan Mikkelson from the Toronto Marlies of the American Hockey League and placed James Wisniewski on injured reserve with a sprained right shoulder. Wisniewski suffered the injury last night in Philadelphia.

Mikkelson, 22, appeared in two games with the Marlies this season, collecting one assist. In five preseason games with the Ducks, the defenseman had one assist, a plus-2 rating, and four penalty minutes. Toronto was scheduled to play the Rockford (Ill.) Ice Hounds today.
