Luca Sbisa will play in Lethbridge.

The Ducks have assigned defenseman Luca Sbisa to his junior team, the Lethbridge Hurricanes of the Western Hockey League.

The 19-year-old was not eligible to be sent to the American Hockey League or ECHL. He appeared in eight games with Anaheim, going scoreless with six penalty minutes, before becoming a healthy scratch for the first time Saturday against the Columbus Blue Jackets.

Sbisa played a season-high 15:08 on Oct. 17 vs. St. Louis. He made his Ducks debut on Oct. 3 vs. San Jose. At 19 years, eight months and three days, he became the third-youngest Duck (Oleg Tverdovsky and Stanislav Chistov) and second-youngest Ducks defenseman (Tverdovsky) to appear in an Anaheim uniform.
