Sexton, McMillan up; Palmieri down.

Dan Sexton and Brandon McMillan have been recalled from the Syracuse Crunch, and Kyle Palmieri is heading back to the Ducks’ American Hockey League affiliate.

Sexton played the first seven games of the season in Anaheim and went scoreless, then missed the next seven games with a broken nose. In four games with the Crunch, the right wing had two goals and five points.

McMillan gets his first NHL call-up after scoring four goals and six points in 16 games at Syracuse. He’s had an eventful year that included signing his entry-level contract in May, and a strong World Junior Championships for silver-medal-winning Team Canada in January.

Palmieri scored a goal in his NHL debut Nov. 3 against the Tampa Bay Lightning, but was held without a point in the next nine games.

The Ducks host the Edmonton Oilers tomorrow at 5 p.m. at Honda Center.
