Mikkelson up.

The Ducks recalled Brendan Mikkelson from Toronto of the American Hockey League. Mikkelson was most recently with the Ducks from Feb. 25 through March 1, but returned to the AHL after the Olympic break.

Mikkelson has two assists and eight penalty minutes in 22 games this season.

**Update: Mikkelson isn’t in the lineup tonight against the Calgary Flames, but head coach Randy Carlyle wanted more injury insurance on the blue line than recent signee Jake Newton, who has never played in an NHL game.
