Lupul activated; Sexton to Syracuse.

After 12 months that included two surgeries, a long summer of resting and walking and not much else and, more recently, three rehab games in the AHL, Joffrey Lupul is back.

The Ducks activated Lupul off long-term injury list after the winger was cleared by team doctors to play. He’ll probably be in the lineup tonight against the Phoenix Coyotes at Honda Center; Dan Sexton has been assigned to the Syracuse Crunch.

Lupul played 22 minutes, 7 seconds for the Crunch on Friday, after playing roughly
15 minutes in each of his first two games with Syracuse. He finished with one
goal and three assists.

Sexton had a goal and two assists in six games since his last recall. He had gone scoreless in his last three.

More to come after tonight’s game.
