Sexton assigned to Manitoba.

With Jason Blake en route from Toronto, the Ducks chose rookie sensation Dan Sexton as the odd man out of the Ducks’ forward corps Sunday, assigning the right wing to Manitoba of the American Hockey League.

Goaltender Justin Pogge was recalled from AHL San Antonio but his stay could be a short one if Vesa Toskala is able to suit up for the Ducks tomorrow against the Florida Panthers.

Sexton appeared in 28 games for the Ducks, collecting nine goals and 18 points with 14 penalty minutes. The 22-year-old led all NHL rookies in goals and points, along with scoring on the road, since his recall from Manitoba on Dec. 4. He scored six goals and 11 points in the month of December, ranking second among league rookies in scoring and tied for second in goals. Sexton also posted a career-high three-game goal streak from Dec. 3-8, matching the longest by a rookie this season.

  1. It could be up to a week for the work visa(s) to be sorted out so non-US citizens can “work” in the US, which is what Toskala is.
