Noesen signed a one-year, two-way deal with Anaheim on Monday. Noesen saw action only once last season and was on the ice for just over 10 minutes. Selected #21 overall in the 2011 NHL Draft, the 23-year-old is still seeking his first NHL point, but finally seems to be on track to live up to the expectations as he garnered 10 goals and 22 helpers for AHL San Diego during the 2015-16 campaign. The center may not be quite ready for the majors, yet fantasy owners will want to monitor the Ducks' call ups next season.
Noesen was sent to AHL San Diego on Monday, Eric Stephens of the Orange County Register reports. With two remaining regular season games left for San Diego, Noesen will get the opportunity for added reps to finish out a season where he only made one appearance for the Ducks. The 23-year-old is joined by Anton Khudobin, Corey Tropp, and Michael Sgarbossa in the move to San Diego.
Noesen was called up from AHL San Diego on Saturday, The Orange County Register reports. Noesen will be available with Rickard Rakell (appendix) reportedly not making the trip to Colorado for Saturday's game, the second to last match for the Ducks in the regular season. Noesen brings size and strength to the lineup and he's been known to play with an edge. While the 23-year-old has only appeared in two NHL games thus far, he's caught the eye of Ducks brass with 10 goals, 23 assists and 54 PIM for the Gulls of the AHL.
Noesen has been reassigned to AHL San Diego. After being recalled Thursday, the former first-round selection drew into the evening's contest, recording three hits in an otherwise quiet 10:02 of ice time. Noesen did see 1:57 of power-play time, but wasn't able to take advantage of the opportunity. The Ducks have decided instead to go with Chris Wagner as a potential lineup option Saturday, while the 23-year-old Noesen will return to an organizational depth role.
Noesen was promoted to the NHL on Thursday. Noesen was selected in the first round of the 2011 NHL Entry Draft. The Ducks have three forwards dealing with injuries, including newcomer Brandon Pirri (ankle), so Noesen can be viewed as an insurance policy ahead of Thursday's road duel against the Coyotes.
