Theodore recorded two even-strength assists with two shots on goal during a win over the Sharks on Friday. Theodore hasn't been able to stick in the lineup or with the Ducks this season, but with seven assists through nine games in the AHL, there isn't much left for him to prove at that level. The 21-year-old defenseman owns huge offensive upside, but fantasy owners will want to see him play consistent minutes before scooping him up in most leagues. Theodore is best utilized as a low-priced flier in daily contests when you know he's in the lineup against a favorable opponent.
Theodore was recalled Monday from AHL San Diego, Curtis Zupke of the Los Angeles Times reports. Theodore missed just one outing after being sent down this time around and will likely resume his pursuit of his first goal of the season Tuesday. In nine games in the minors, the blueliner has racked up seven helpers and eight PIM. If he can start converting in the NHL, the 21-year-old could help right the ship in Anaheim after they have dropped three of their last four contests.
Theodore was recalled from AHL San Diego on Sunday. Theodore has been proficient in eight games with the Gulls, posting seven assists after mustering just a single point in six contests with the Ducks to open the season. It's unclear at this point how Anaheim plans to use the 21-year-old, but his first chance to suit up will come Tuesday at home against the Islanders.
Theodore was sent down to the minors Thursday. Theodore has snagged just one assist through six games this season, so it should not come as a surprise that the organization decided to send him back to the minors. Last year in the AHL, the defenseman logged 38 points in 50 contests in addition to appearing in 19 games with the Ducks. This move could just be a way to jump start Theodore's season as he seems like a probably recall in the future considering he has been playing on both the power play and the penalty kill.
Theodore was reassigned to AHL San Diego on Saturday, Eric Stephens of the Orange County Register reports. Theodore had drawn into the lineup each of the last four games for Anaheim and even contributed to the team's power play in each of the contests. It's possible the blueliner will be recalled again prior to Tuesday's contest against the Kings, but if not, the 21-year-old could still see plenty of NHL action later this season.
