Dan Sexton loaned to AHL Manitoba

Speedy winger Dan Sexton, the Bakersfield Condors’ leading scorer, has been promoted from the Ducks’ ECHL affiliate to the American Hockey League’s Manitoba Moose.

The 22-year-old was leading the Condors in goals (13) and points (26), and has more goals than any ECHL rookie. A free-agent signee out of Boston College, Sexton was named ECHL Player of the Week Monday for scoring five goals and nine points in four games to help Bakersfield go 4-0.

After registering three assists in a 6-2 win against Alaska on Nov. 20, Sexton scored his first career hat trick in a 7-4 win against the Aces on Nov. 21 and closed out the week scoring the game-winning goal and three points (2g-1a) in a 4-2 win on Nov. 22.

Sexton’s center in Bakersfield, MacGregor Sharp, made his NHL debut with the Ducks last Thursday. In Manitoba, Sexton joins Ducks center Erik Christensen and defense prospect Brian Salcido.
