McElhinney arrives, Pielmeier to Bakersfield.

Goaltender Timo Pielmeier was returned to ECHL affiliate Bakersfield on Friday, clearing the way for Curtis McElhinney to join the Ducks’ roster.

McElhinney came to the Ducks in Wednesday’s trade that sent Vesa Toskala to the Calgary Flames, but obtaining a work visa delayed McElhinney’s arrival. McElhinney is a native of London, Ontario who had never been employed by a United States-based team, spending his entire three-year career in Calgary.
