The Ducks have recalled defenseman Brendan Mikkelson from the Toronto Marlies of the American Hockey League and reassigned goaltender Joey MacDonald to the Marlies.
Jonas Hiller, who has missed five games with back spasms, is making the trip to Dallas for tomorrow’s game against the Stars and could turn Curtis McElhinney into a backup again. Center Ryan Getzlaf (sprained ankle) did not make the Ducks’ road trip.
The 22-year-old Mikkelson has two assists in 25 games spanning three stints with the Ducks this season. He was originally recalled from Toronto on Oct. 11 and again on Feb. 25 and Mar. 23. MacDonald, 30, did not appear in a game for the Ducks during his only time with the team. He was originally acquired from the Toronto Maple Leafs for a seventh-round pick in the June draft.
