THE TELETYPE:
The Ducks announced today that they have recalled defenseman Danny Syvret after fellow blueliner Brendan Mikkelson was claimed from waivers by the Calgary Flames.

Syvret cleared waivers at the beginning of the month in one of the Ducks final moves to pare down the roster for the season.  He then joined the team's AHL affiliate in Syracuse.  Mikkelson was waived yesterday in a move that was influenced by how much the 2005 31st overall pick had developed in comparison to his fellow Ducks prospects according to what Ducks Coach Randy Carlyle told the OC Register today. 

Mikkelson struggled in the preseason and season, though he did play key time on the penalty kill and at even strength, perhaps as a prelude to making him available on the waiver wire.  Syvret was on the ice to practice with the Ducks in Columbus today according to Helene Elliott's Twitter, but he, too, struggled in his time with the Ducks before hitting the waiver wire.  It is unclear how much Anaheim will use him as the 7th defenseman on the upcoming road trip, especially with the team still trying to break in defensemen Toni Lydman and Andreas Lilja.
