At 5-foot-9 and 175 pounds, 22-year-old Dan Sexton would fit well in an ECHL or AHL clubhouse, which is where he’s spent his first professional season until now. Because of Teemu Selanne’s broken hand, he is getting a chance to step into the Ducks’ lineup, possibly tonight against the Minnesota Wild.
The speedy right wing began the season with the ECHL’s Bakersfield Condors, scoring 26 points in 18 games, before moving up to the AHL’s Manitoba Moose on Nov. 25. In five games for Manitoba, Sexton recorded a goal and two assists. He was signed as a free agent out of Bowling Green over the summer.
